Overview:

This is a charming old world farmhouse, lovingly refurbished with all new systems - plumbing, wiring and furnace. Many original features such as maple planks, plank walls and pine flooring catch the eye while the new support beams, insulation, windows, doors and top of the line appliances blend beautifully to preserve the period setting. There is travertine tile in the kitchen, bath and shower. The ensuite master bath has a claw-foot porcelain tub and twin sinks. New surround decking on the farmhouse, an older barn in good condition and a detached garage are some of the exterior features to enjoy. Set on a rise looking down the valley to the Gulf, this exquisite property has nearly 600 meters of gurgling brook winding diagonally through the acreage and supports a population of native brook trout in the shaded holes and rapids. Lovely sunsets, 53 acres of peaceful and absolutely quiet privacy, 10 minutes from shopping and golf, this property is Cape Breton at its best.

Comments:

This rural property of 50+ acres enjoys a beautifully peaceful, quiet setting. The vendors say it is a wonderful neighborhood with friendly, helpful neighbors. There are even a few famous artists in the immediate vicinity as well as abundant wildlife.

Surrounding views take in rolling hills, intervale, a bubbling trout brook and the blue expanse of the Gulf below to the Northwest. Spectacular sunsets, moonrises, sunrises, ocean views and stargazing are a part of nature's year round show here with seating always plentiful on the spacious decks that surround the home.

Dunvegan is centrally located to all that Cape Breton has to offer: within an hour of the Highlands National Park, near the Famous Margaree River, Baddeck, Mabou, 5 minutes to Inverness Center for the Arts, and all the town conveniences - groceries, lumber, hardware, etc.

The property is covered with abundant wildflowers (Yarrow, Daisies, Purple Asters, Queen Annes Lace, Goldenrod, Irises, Primrose, and wild apple tress, wild mint and more) The two driveway entries follow the ocean views (unspoiled by power poles and lines which are buried) and provide just one of the many reasons it is such a pleasure to call this place home.
