Overview:

A delightful unusual octagonal home post & beam, board & baton with massive stone column in the center which also houses the flu from the fireplace. The stone and concrete radiate heat during the winter fires, and cool in the summer. Unexpected but charming configurations for kitchen, dining and sitting areas create a cozy and comfortable milieu. The picture windows both brighten and provide a year-round sense of privacy amongst the wooded scene. A large vegetable garden successfully provides a constant source of fresh greens and wholesome dining throughout the growing season. The 8 foot wide track up the hill leads through the woods and provides relaxing walks. The active and popular village of Baddeck is only minutes away for shopping, restaurants, and the waterfront. An unusual and very comfortable home. An unusual and very attractive home, which has most of the window glass changed, the frames re-done in 2008 and the wood stove replaced by a "WET" professional in 2009. In addition the kitchen appliances were new in 2008.

Comments:

The vegetable gardens are 100% organic.

The 2 storey storage barn has 384 square feet of storage. It is currently used to store garden and yard equipment and wood. The upper floor is loft style with plenty of head room under the roof peak.

This delightful property is less than 10 minutes from Baddeck, a resort town located on the Bras d'Or Lakes at the beginning of the Cabot Trail. Baddeck is probably best known for being the summer retreat of Alexander Graham Bell.
