« High country farm, 174 acres ....................................$150,000 | Main | Archie's Esso, Mabou.............................................$127,000 »

Spectacular lake view.........NOW REDUCED.............$389,000  

Entering this spectacular 70 acre property you climb a winding wooded driveway to emerge hundreds of feet above Lake Ainslie onto a pastoral scene of grassy meadows and woods, with panoramic views of the lake from end to end. Hard to imagine the views from up here high above the lake if you haven't seen them: the big sky, the lake - largest in Nova Scotia - and the distant hills.   

The driveway winds up and up from the highway through a mature stand of spruce trees, finally opening out to open meadows and those views.  A little further up sits a house, a classic Cape Breton style, renovated a few years ago by the previous owner. Besides the house there is also an equipment shed and a garage.    


The farmhouse has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths.  It has been comprehensively renovated throughout, with much use of pine boards and trim.

The main floor has a foyer, kitchen, dining room, living room, den/study (presently used as a bedroom) and full bath with whirlpool tub.  Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, including the spacious master bedroom with a huge arched window, and the second bathroom. Views from all the windows are impressive, given the commanding height of the house above the surrounding country.

A concrete block foundation with a gravel floor houses the furnace, 3 oil tanks, and water system. 

Outbuildings include a large equipment barn and a garage.   

And also.......  A previous owner took advantage of the rolling high meadows with their wonderful views to create his own 6 hole, 1200 yard par 24 golf course. It has been been lovingly maintained by the current owner. Equipment for this - several types of mowing machines of various design - is stored in the large purpose-built barn.  

A great place to practice and hone your skills before taking on the new Cabot courses at Inverness! Or do like previous owners and host a tournament for your friends.  


The property is offered with all furniture and equipment in the house, and contents of the garage and barn, including for instance all the mowing gear, fishing gear, tools and much more. 

Lake frontage

If water frontage on the Lake is desired, a buyer of this property is being offered a 3 acre lake-front parcel across the West Lake road for $10,000. (Asking price for these lots is $45,000: please see the listing elsewhere on this website.) For boating, fishing, swimming, building a dock... or just general exploration.   


To sum up, this property is a wonderful estate: could accommodate several houses, a commercial venture, or a year-round or seasonal home base.
