This gorgeous home on 50 acres of ocean-front property has been featured in numerous international publications for its interior design and spectacular location. A modern version of classic Cape Breton architecture, the open-plan and informal home features wall-to-wall windows and a wrap-around deck to take in the 360 degree views of ocean, rugged coastline, Margaree island, and tree-covered rolling hills. Experience all of the natural beauty and incredible wildlife Cape Breton has to offer — sunsets over the water, sunrises over the hills, whales swimming off the coast, eagles and hawks flying overhead, moonlit evenings, and fields strewn with wildflowers and berries. Complement your experience with modern amenities such as Wifi, Sonos system with interior and exterior speakers, washer and dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, as well bikes and kayaks to explore the area and a telescope to take everything in. The house sleeps up to 8 in 3 bedrooms: a king bedroom, a queen bedroom and a bedroom with 4 twins. There are two bathrooms with views of the water (a breath-taking bathing experience!) plus an exterior shower with views of the coastline and hills.
