Cottage Country, Port Hood, 174 acres.......................$179,000

This is an interesting project, started but left unfinished by the original developer. Using just a small part of this huge tract of land, 174 acres in 3 PID's, the plan was to build several log cabins that could share a common water supply and septic system. The one cabin built is beautifully finished, in the european style with pine interiors and clever cabinetry that makes full use of the 640 sg ft of living space.     

By careful design of the layout, the cottages could share services without being on top of each other, in some cases even without sight of each other.

A good road with the power line runs about half a mile to the furthest of the cleared sites, where the existing cabin sits: 

There is also a garage on the property, and a couple of small outbuildings near the cabin.  

The cabin is open plan but for the bedroom and bathroom. Beautiful interior finsih work, with many neat touches in the use of cabinets, shelves and drawers. Even a table and chairs made of logs too! Electric baseboard heat is installed but the woodstove can make that unnecessary. Laundry is in one of the outbuildings.

Location


Only about two miles from Port Hood and civilisation, the driveway enters onto Highway 19, the Ceilidh Trail. But this is a private - and remote if you go back to the farthest reaches of the property - setting that could satisfy anyone's desire for wilderness.

There are at least 2 km of frontage on the winding Captains River - trout fishing on the doorstep. The property consists of 3 parcels altogether:
