An unusual listing, this beautiful church in Orangedale is now for sale. For many years a United church, this lovely building has been a feature of Orangedale for the best part of a century, and now looks for someone to continue its life in another form. The church is situated on 3/4 of an acre, and has a kitchen and function room downstairs, along with a half bathroom.
The building has been well maintained, as can be seen. Roof is only from 2007, furnace from 2009 and the oil tank is just 2 years old, the hot water heater even younger.
Water is from a community system in the village, at a cost of $400/year. Oil forced hot air system provides heat.
Great location in the centre of Orangedale and close to the waters of the Bras d'Or Lakes. Next door is the Orangedale Railway Museum, another beautiful heritage building. See http://www.novascotiarailwayheritage.com/orangedale.htm
Property is currently assessed at $154,000 but for sale for less than half that.
Here is a description of the building in a write-up about the Inauguration of the church in July 1931:
