Cheticamp Island Home.......................................$299,000

On 11+ acres on Cheticamp Island, this 1,800 sq ft (on the main floor) bungalow with all modern conveniences is a gardener's delight! A steel barn 30 x 40 is insulated and heated, and stores the machinery for a fruit and vegetable garden of commercial proportions. Hardwood floors throughout, except tile in the bathroom and entry. The house is around 25 years old, the barn 7 years.    

Set up as two bedrooms currently, one part of the living area - now with a Murphy bed - could easily be converted to a third bedroom by adding a door. 

The bright kitchen has oak cabinets, a cook-top in the island, wall oven and dishwasher. Both bedrooms are large and have double closets with loads of storage space. Bathroom has a 5 foot shower with seat. 

Oversized windows flood the living spaces with light, and the hardwood floors are immaculate. A brick fireplace is the focal point of the sitting area, and central vac makes all the housework easier. The house is wheelchair accessible, and the south-facing deck has a retractable awning.

The full 1,800 sq ft basement is unfinished: potential for way more living space. There are TWO forced-hot-air furnaces: one oil, one wood, and rough-ins for a bathroom.  200 amp electrical service, which automatically switches to an outside propane generator system when a power outage is detected.

The steel barn, sitting beside the vegetable garden, has a wood stove and insulation, and its own 200 amp electrical panel. The garden measures 200 x 70 feet, a wonderful asset, and a source of income with the recent trend towards eating more locally-sourced food.
