This is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Our big old house is a hundred years old. It is on two lovely acres with gardens, next to a brook and near some woods, but is just a pleasant walk to the heart of North Sydney. Itis a great base from which to explore beautiful Cape Breton Island.

Very hospitable, wake up to fresh bread baking in morning! Ray Charles was a great canine host to Venus, our Lab! Thank you Nancy, Chris and Ray Charles for showing us Cape Breton hospitality! We are glad we decided to move here ourselves!
