One mile from the village of Mabou, on the paved Rankinville Road, is this 9 year-old beautifully designed modern version of a country home. The main floor has an open plan kitchen, dining, living area with a wood stove and brick chimney at its heart. Pine floors throughout, upstairs too. One other room, with a bay window, is currently the TV room.
A large enclosed sunporch with 4 huge windows faces the Mabou highlands; a back porch and 3-piece bath complete this floor. Upstairs are three large bedrooms and another bathroom. Laundry is in a closet beside the bathroom. A sheltered outside porch wraps around three sides of the house.
Exposed beams in the main floor ceiling give that country feel, along with the warm pine floors, and there are several antique touches like the newel post, some doors, and a kitchen cupboard.
Heating is via the wood stove and a Rinnai propane heater, which the owners have found to be more than enough to heat the entire house in winter.
Quality construction is evident everywhere. The house is built on a concrete foundation with a 4+ foot crawl space. Municipal water is a plus (the owners extended the line to this property) and the septic system is fully to code.
All this on a surveyed lot of 2.67 acres.
The property is a mile from Mabou, close to groceries, gas, Mull restaurant, Red Shoe Pub and spectacular beaches at West Mabou and Mabou Coal Mines. Inverness is 15 minutes north, Port Hood 10 minutes south.
