Overview:

Tucked away from traffic and tourists, this delightful corner of peace and beauty is a rare opportunity. The price per square foot of living space is average for this area, but nothing else is. Those square feet are completely (and very tastefully) furnished from decorative dishes in the kitchen to bed linens for the 3 bedrooms, this place is truly move-in ready. There's a large TV, an oil fired stove, two refrigerator/freezers, washer, dryer, new microwave and comfortable furniture throughout the semi-open concept rooms.

The well maintained bungalow has three decks, new windows and doors, a double shingle roof, new paint and more. There are two drives which meet at the heated, wired double garage and there are two additional outbuildings, all conveniently grouped well back from the road on the 1.1 acre property. From any viewpoint, one can't help but appreciate the landscaped yard with its large variety of fruit trees, small trout pond and hardwoods that look spectacular in autumn. The mountain and forest views are gorgeous and the outdoor soundtrack features a bubbling brook and bird song.

This is simply a rare and valuable find - an extraordinary opportunity for a vacation or year round home just minutes away from the Cabot Trail and about 20 minutes from Cheticamp. The proximity of the very beautiful National Park, sandy beaches and village services (including the best Co-Op grocery and hardware store) means a comfortable life on all fronts. Walking trails, local mountain views, golf, fishing and abundant wild life enchance this peaceful and relaxing locale.

Comments:
  • windows, doors, gutters, exterior and interior paint, crown molding, hardwood flooring and septic system (8x4x4 or 1000 gal.) are all new within the last 3 to 6 years
  • the kitchen has a brand new microwave only used twice
  • the dug spring well produces good quality water but there is also an ultra violet light installed in the system
  • there is an underground cold room for food storage
  • new fencing was installed in 2016
  • the roof features double shingles
  • the property is situated such that it is protected from the strong winds commonly associated with the area
  • the property is surrounded by undeveloped land (likely to stay that way) with eye pleasing mountain views and no neighbors visible
  • we were present at the property in total for over 6 hours and never saw or heard a vehicle on the road; one of the roads adjacent to the property is a dirt road rarely if ever used
  • an area near the house used to be a large organic garden and could easily be one again
  • there are numerous fruit trees in the yard: a dozen plum trees, 2 apple trees, 5 cherry trees and highbush blueberry, crabapple and gooseberry
  • there is a rock garden with an 80 foot long rock wall made from field stone
  • a small trout pond with a stream is located along the woods near the garage and sheds
  • the garage is a detached, oversized double, heated, wired, has an enclosed workshop and furnace room and has extra space for storage
  • over the years, the owners have seen an impressive collection of area wildlife on the property: lots of birds, including owls and ealges, deer, moose, minks, bear, foxes plus the usual backyard residents like rabbits and squirrels
  • nearby are opportunities to hunt, fish, play golf, swim, go skidoing/four wheeling and Pembroke Lake is just 5 miles away

 

Area:
  • Wildlife is varied and plentiful: in the air, you see Blue Herons, seagulls, Bald Eagles, Black Guillemots, Northern Gannets, Double Crested Cormorants and Common Mergansers; on the land, you see red squirrels, rabbits, coyotes, and deer; in and around the water, there are muskrats, Harbour and Gray Seals, porpoises and dolphins, as well as a number of different types of whales - Pilot, Humpback, Finback, Blue and Minke.
  • There is a protected blue heron rookery - the largest in the maritimes - with over 100 nests in the trees on nearby Cheticamp Island.
  • Nearby Cheticamp is a charming Acadian town with an excellent Co-Op grocery store, French baked goods, a number of good restaurants, the Le Portage Golf course, public wharves, local fishing fleet, sport fishing opportunities and much more.
