Overview:

Ancient poplars line the drive like giant sentinels leading into this magic 5 acres overlooking Margaree Harbour. In the midst of the old forest is the house with cut stone terrace possibly from Louisbourg Fortress ruins in the nineteenth century. The building is a delightful compendium of Victoriana with rich reds in both the walls and furniture. The central fireplace is a focus in winter balanced by the latest of kitchen appliances in a large and comfortable kitchen. The lady of the house provided the style and ambiance, being known for her periodic European-style soirees, using Asian, European, or Mexican themes. The house was added on in 1993/4 with a very comfortable second floor bathroom including a Jacuzzi bath set in marble. There is a large and utilitarian office on the ground floor. The garage work room / storage building has its own heat and even a mechanics pit for working on vehicles. The grounds will always be private, and the magic will remain.

Extras :

Comments:

An unusually attractive private property that includes a 46' x 25' building rear with large space for workshop etc. The garage doors are hung and there is a mechanic's pit under the vehicle parking in the garage end of building. Heated and wired.

Extras:

  • There is an unusual guest bedroom separate from house 10' x 17'5".
  • The waterfront would lend itself to having a wharf with the river channel not far from shore.
  • Access to the ocean/Margaree Harbour Beach.

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.
  • The beaches of Margaree are exceptional. They are easy to find and close together, all found on a nine-kilometre stretch of coastline. The water on the Gulf, or, 'sunset side' of the island is warmer than the Atlantic side of Cape Breton, making these prime Cape Breton beaches for swimming.
  • Cheticamp (13 miles north on Rte. 19) 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.
  • The town of Inverness is approximately 18 miles South on Rte. 19 and offers grocery shopping, pharmacy, restaurants, a superior public beach plus the new world class Links Golf courses.
  • Other smaller communities in close proximity to Margaree Harbour include: Margaree Forks, S. W. Margaree, N.E. Margaree, Margaree Valley, Margaree, Chimney Corner, Saint Rose, Portree, Dunvegan, Cap Le Moine, St. Joseph du Moine, Grand Etang and Belle Cote.
