Flat Roofed House, 15 acres, SW Margaree.........$97,000

This is a classic century home, locally known as the FRH (flat roofed house). This style of house has other local examples, but is not nearly as common in Cape Breton as the 1 1/2 story steep-pitched roof type.  Situated in a lovely setting of 15 acres of old pastures and mixed woods, with sweeping views of the surrounding hills, the property is easily accessed from Hway 19 via a short stretch of good gravel road. The FRH still maintains most of its original features, like wide board panelled walls, original doors, trim, and wainscotting. It has been updated with a porch and modern bathroom, and  the Vermont Castings enamelled wood stove is included.  4 bedrooms upstairs; bathroom, living rooms and kitchen down.

10 minutes to Inverness and its hospital, school, shops, restaurants, 3 mile sand beach and golf course(s). Even closer to the beaches in Dunvegan. 

A couple of outbuildings are not in good repair and need attention, and the house itself needs some work.  This property needs a loving owner to tend to it: to both the buildings and the surrounding gardens, fields and woods, to make it again a lovely classic estate property.
