Overview:

Located among the charming properties in Grand Etang, this lovely home belongs perfectly, and like most Acadian homes, the gardens and landscaped grounds are meticulously cared for. The kitchen layout permits an open atmosphere next to the large living room and adjoining piano room. The master bedroom is located on the main floor with its attractive ensuite bath having a comfortably sized Jacuzzi tub. The decking in front of the house provides a very pleasant, stunning, and relaxing area, while the barbecue on the rear deck, partially shaded by a gorgeous apple tree (which makes delightful applesauce) is easily accessed from the kitchen. The original building was constructed in the early 1900s and the present owners raised the building in 1972 to install a concrete floor and basement with 6 foot ceilings. A gasoline fuelled generator is wired into the house electrical system, but requires switching once the power is lost. A new roof on the main part of house in front was just completed, the rear in 2004. Water is supplied from a common source in the rear hills, gravity fed for $125/year. The paved driveway has a large parking area, and there is a detached garage with storage space. Shopping and services are only 15 minutes away in Cheticamp.

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.
