400+ Acres for the 21st Century Pioneer

This very large property was assembled from a number of smaller parcels that now total a contiguous 400+ acres. It has a woodland lake, extensive forest and trails, expansive elevated views of and access frontage on the Bras d'Or Lake. The location affords absolute privacy yet is just 20 minutes from Sydney. Quiet enjoyment of these attractive features would be enough for most of us but the engineer owner had specific expectations from this land. He prepared basic plans for a hydro-electric generating facility, using release of water from the property's 5 acres lake. He calculated the sustainable cordage available for building and energy resources, including a small biomass gasifaction plant for the generation of additional electric power. A number of cleared tracks have been prepped for future vehicle drives and possible building sites have been identified. The plans and design may be included in the offering. Please visit Realtor's website for more information.
