Huge Lake Ainslie Estate-Best Value on the Island

Just a 20 minute drive from Cabot Links is a unique property on the shores of Lake Ainslie, the largest freshwater lake in the Maritimes. The 560 acre property has 1341 feet of waterfront with lovely views down and across the lake into the surrounding hills. The main residence, constructed of substantial logs from the large surrounding woodland, has been meticulously looked after and modernized over the past 3 decades. A strong sense of years past is retained in the rich colors of the main log walled great room with massive stone fireplace. A huge moose head surveys the room, which includes the dining area and overlooks the lake just below through large picture windows. The very generous deck provides the perfect outdoor location for barbeques and appreciating the long lake view.
A newly expanded eat-in kitchen still has the original wood burning stove. The 103 by 45 foot building has 5 bedrooms (3 ensuites) and 5 bathrooms. The main floor master suite provides access to the exercise room and sauna. The guest residence is 2006 sq. ft. of living area with 4 bedrooms including a master suite on the ground floor. The unusually large acreage sweeps up the hill and has mature hard maple, birch and beech. Forest roads cover a good portion of the land and show evidence of moose, bear, deer, partridge, fox, bear, lynx, coyote, hawks and eagles. Lake Ainslie is part of the Margaree River System, well known for trout, perch and salmon. There is a trout stream high in the woods overlooking the lake. At a price of $100 per square foot of living area and the 560 acres at no additional cost, this listing is the best value on the market.
