Black MacDonald's Cove...............................................$257,000

This 30 acre property has over 1,900' of water frontage on the Margaree River and a beautiful tranquil inlet off the main river known as Black MacDonald's Cove. There is a 25 year old Interhab cabin built near the water, off the grid, with solar panels for power. Access is from the Cabot Trail highway but the 1/2 km driveway ensures total privacy. 
 
The cottage is 20x20 with a 9x8 sunroom addition and a 10x20 upper level.The home has regular 110V wiring and outlets; the power comes from three solar panels, 4 large batteries and an inverter. Propane powers the fridge, stove and water heater, there is a wood stove for heat, and the building is well insulated. Spring-fed well, buried water line and septic system complete the mechanicals. Metal roof, deck on two sides and a small shed behind the house.
 
The waterfront is unique: quiet and wooded riverbanks, sea otters play in the cove and eagles are resident in the area. About 600' of riverside are on the main river, the rest constitute almost all of one side of the cove. Boating is available up and down stream from this location.  
 
Owners have added some trees around the cabin, including Japanese lilac and Amur cork trees. 
 
Here's a view of the property from the opposite bank of the river:
 
 
 
Overall a wonderful property. The cottage is turnkey, no renovations or repairs required. If grid power was installed, the wiring requires no changes. 
The land is such that other waterfront building sites could be created which would not even be visible from each other.
