This incredibly appointed three-bedroom, three-bath modern home was extensively renovated in 2020. It features floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook 200 feet of coastline on the Bras d’Or Lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The home’s wide range of amenities include a chef's kitchen, two indoor fireplaces (one wood-burning and one propane), screen room and multiple outdoor entertaining areas. The property's breathtaking views and clean-lined style offer an exceptional guest experience.

Le logement
The great room offers ample relaxed seating to take in the view of the Bras d’Or, an inland sea, and the uninhabited hills of the opposite shore. The dining table, which seats eight, is dressed in Artiga linen and perched under a modern fixture by Montreal’s Lambert & Fils design studio.

In cooler months, a wood-burning fireplace warms both the main living area and the chef’s kitchen that spans the back wall of the great room. Expansive and well-equipped, it’s a home chef’s dream space, featuring a 36” 6-burner Blue Star propane range, Wolf exhaust hood and commercial-style refrigeration from True including a 48” glass-front fridge/freezer and three additional undercounter refrigeration units: a 24” glass-front beverage fridge, a 24” dual zone wine fridge and a 15” ice-maker (yes, you can make 70 pounds of ice per day). The 12-foot kitchen island, which houses deep, professional-grade stainless-steel sinks, a Bosch dishwasher and microwave, can seat six. Commercial kitchen open shelving and a wide galley ensures that everyone can pitch in at mealtime — here, there are never too many cooks (although some amateur chefs will prefer to have the space to themselves).

The main floor of the house is complemented by an office/den with pullout double sofa bed as well as a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The three-season room offers a cozy screened porch with wicker chairs to curl up in to enjoy the outdoors in bug-free comfort; once the fall sets in, the porch’s windows can be easily closed for extra warmth in the cooler months. Regardless of the season, the porch offers unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views of the property and the Bras d’Or.

There are multiple outdoor entertaining spaces as well — the main level of the house features a spacious, glass-railed west-facing deck while a second expansive deck at ground level is home to a rustic dining table that seats 10. The third deck, perched above the stairs to the water, is complemented by a clean-lined steel-cable railing and a pergola lit with Edison bulbs. The fire pit, ringed with colourful Muskoka chairs, offers both warmth on cool evenings and yet another glorious view of the water.

The home’s three bedrooms are on the lower level — however, thanks to the home’s split entry design, there are eye-level windows in the master bedroom and third bedroom. The spacious master bedroom, which offers another stellar view of the property through a trio of windows overlooking the lawn, features a gas fireplace and an ensuite with a walk-in closet, heated floor, custom tile work and an oversized steam shower. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom with a tub/shower enclosure and heated floor.

The house allows two people to work from home, with a large desk in the den and a (very) small desk in the master bedroom. The house offers high-speed internet — however, in the interests of full disclosure, “high-speed” internet in rural Cape Breton will at times be far less than urban dwellers are accustomed to. That being said, the homeowners made it through a pandemic summer of duelling Zoom conference calls without too many glitches or threats of divorce.

Guests can fill the main floor and master bedroom with rich audio streamed from their smartphone to Sonos speakers; there’s a 40-inch flat-screen TV, DVD player and selection of DVDs in the den.

For outdoor fun, guests enjoy the use of two kayaks (one double and one single), one stand-up paddle board and lawn games (bocce, croquet and washer toss, a Cape Breton favourite).

Accès des voyageurs
Guests have exclusive access to the home and grounds (the garage, garden shed and chicken coop aren't accessible to guests). The mechanical room and owners' storage closet are locked.

The dock and deep-water mooring are seasonal and might not be available depending on the time of your stay; however, the Ross Ferry public boat launch is less than two kilometres away.

Ross Ferry, Nova Scotia, Canada

The community of Ross Ferry is, as the name suggests, centred around an old ferry wharf. While the ferry itself is long gone, the Ross Ferry Marine Park is the hub of the community; it features walking trails, fitness equipment, a boat launch and a fabulous farmers market that runs from early July until the end of September.

The property location makes it easy to take in Cape Breton's leading attractions including the Cabot Trail, Fortress Louisbourg, Ingonish Beach and world-class golf at Highland Links, Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs.
