This house high up on the SW Mabou ridge was a cadillac renovation project, taking in every aspect of the house: the concrete basement, water system, septic, windows, doors, floors, kitchen and bathroom.... it's easier to look at the photos than read any more. The home is on 4.4 acres of high up 'big sky' country, with views all over including of the ocean and the Mabou river estuary.


An entrance porch at the back door with handsome pine fittings leads past another room (study, den, could be a main floor bedroom) and the bathroom to the kitchen and dining room.

Custom cabinets and a propane cookstove, lots of counter space, as well as a wood burning cookstove, are features of the kitchen. The dining area leads into the large sitting room full of windows and a set of french doors. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and a small powder room.

The spotless basement houses the FHA oil furnace, oil tank, and a comprehensive water treatment system. Otherwise masses of empty space available.

Another feature is the beautiful stone work, low walls and steps, bordering the house outside. And with a couple of exceptions, the quality furniture and equipment in the house is included

No other way to put it: at this price this property qualifies as a steal.



A pastoral setting just 3 miles from the village of Mabou: groceries, gas, mail, restaurants....including the Red Shoe, home to Celtic music and fine food, and the Mull. Nearby attractions include square dances at West Mabou, the spectacular West Mabou Beach, and the Mabou Highlands hiking trails.
