Margaree River roost................................................$628,000

A luxurious new house with views to die for - what else could you want? How about a 3-bedroom 2 bathroom carriage house over a garage workshop - and an elevator to get there? And several heating systems, and marble counters and....  It will take a while to cover all the features of this 2.5 acre property perched high above the Margaree River.

Panoramic is an over used word for views, but not here. It's not possible to convey the views in a still photo but here's a couple anyway:

The House:  is two stories, 36' x 54', ICF walls all the way up, a metal roof, and an attached garage.

The upper floor - ground  level at the back - has the kitchen, living /dining room, 3 bedrooms, engineered wood floors or tile throughout, 2 balconies. Ceiling height is 9' 6" with all doors 8' high. One full bathroom - tiled floors, separate tub and shower, double sinks, also a powder room; both with granite counter-tops. The huge kitchen (15 x 19) is top-of-the line: tiled floor, granite counters and island, 3 sinks, SS appliances and patio doors to a concrete deck over the garage; flooded with light from many f.    

The lower level has one main room (28 x 18), a study/office (17 x 18), another bedroom, and full bath. Also the utility room and attached garage. Total square footage of both floors is 3,500 sg ft. 

400 amp service, gravity water supply, engineered septic system. The heating system is in-floor radiant heat throughout, via an outdoor wood-fired boiler, or alternatively an electric back-up boiler. All the bedrooms have 12' long closets with 10' sliding glass doors. All mod cons like air exchanger, central vac, heavy insulation, top-quality windows and patio doors.

Occupancy permit for this house was granted in October 2018.

Lower level

The garage and workshop: is 30' x 50', built in 2013. The walls are 16' high with two sets of doors - 12 x 12 and 12 x 10. It is heated by the same wood-doctor hot water system as the house, also by a wood stove inside. Roof and siding are all metal. A vehicle hoist has a 12,000 lb capacity. 

The carriage house upstairs - or rather up the elevator! - is a three bedroom apartment, with 12' vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, two full bathrooms and an open kitchen dining living area. Granite counters, tiled showers.... Off the living room is a 12' x 24' stone-paved balcony with those sensational views.

The property is just off the paved East Margaree road, 3 miles from Margaree Harbour. From there it's 25 minutes south to Inverness, 20 minutes north to Cheticamp and the national park.

After having developed this whole property, the owners have now had a change in the family situation and are parting with their dream homes. This could be a home plus a rental, a family compound, a home office in the lower level of the house....  many different possibilities. However you look at it the buyers will be getting new and near-new top quality buildings at a major discount to the cost of construction.
