2 Waterfronts, 2 Baby Barns & 48 Acres
This nice sized homestead is located in the area of Cape Breton's first settlement, an area chosen for its beautiful setting, rolling hills, good farming potential, and views of the famous Bras d'Or Lake. The mainly rectangular shaped 48 acres are bounded on one side by Benacadie Pond (Bras d'Or Lake Estuary area) and on the other by the Bras d'Or Lake with a total of over 2000 feet of shoreline. Up until about a year ago, the property was used as a residence and while the old mobile home is now of little to no value, two insulated baby barns in good condition remain usable as does the gravel driveway, spring fed well, septic system, and electrical service. The larger baby barn measures 24' x 24', has electricity, and has been used as a horse barn. The smaller outbuilding measures 16' x 16' and was used as a storage unit conveniently located close to the former residence. The acreage is mostly wooded and is believed to have had no cutting in the last 30 years. Softwood is predominant although some hardwoods are visible throughout. Amenities are 15 minutes away and include grocery, restaurants, pub, entertainment, motel, and convenience store/gas station. Nearby communities include Highland Village, Iona, Eskasoni, Estmere, Little Narrows, and McKinnons Harbour. Elevated lake views from the property with their backdrop of rolling hills and colourful foliage are particularly enticing during the fall months. Good trout fishing can be enjoyed very close by and the property has its share of deer, rabbits, and even two resident eagles, who share the fishing largess.
