This wonderful property on scenic and central Boulardarie Island stretches south from the shore of the Great Bras d'Or Channel at Big Bras d'Or, across Old Route 5, to the TransCanada Highway. Acreage is largely wooded, and a picturesque driveway winds its way south from Route 5 to the site of the old homestead, high above the road and the Channel. The "old home" has been treated to significant upgrades in recent years, all the while respecting its original character and charm. A new concrete basement provides a solid base, a single built in garage, and a bright and adaptable space with laundry, workbench , etc. Layout of the main and second storey remain largely unchanged, and incorporation of original hewn beams, wood floors and walls add a warmth to the home that is not easily reproduced today. Baseboard electric heating as well as a wood stove. Dug well and septic. This country home ensures the privacy and intimacy with nature that comes with rural living , and yet is located less than 30 minutes from all the amenities offered in the industrial Sydney area, or scenic Baddeck. Waterfront lot across road is included!
