This 120 year old 1.5 story house has all the character and charm of a century home, but all the convenience of a modern home - having been fully renovated to an open concept in 2003. The large sliding doors open to the screened in deck to give you a spectacular view of Cape Breton, Chedebucto Bay, ships passing along to the Canso Causeway, fishing & sailboats and beautiful sunrises. At certain times of the year pilot whales are seen right from the deck. Seals and eagles are often seen. The location is ideal for day trips to the many points of interest on Cape Breton Island, or Halifax (leave early in the morning and be back after supper). Winter visitors are made cozy in this fully winterized (insulated) home and can enjoy both the woodstove and the lovely view in the comfort of the living room. No need to spend your last vacation day cleaning, as that is done for you after you leave. Well behaved pets are welcome, and your dog will love romping in the privacy of the 18 acres of forested mountainside- complete with spring fed stream for refreshing drinks! New in 2010 is a large screened room in the forest beside the spring fed stream - perfect for quiet afternoons in the woods.
