2139 East Margaree Rd - Fordview Margaree, NS SIGN # 36157


With a view of the Cabot Trail and the lower Margaree River Valley, this 4 acre property is just seven miles from the western coast of Cape Breton with its superb scenery and outstanding recreational opportunities. A 25-minute drive north takes you through Acadian French fishing villages to the mountains of Cape Breton Highlands National Park, a paradise for hikers, photographers, and outdoor adventurers.

Our Western coast offers sensational sandy beaches and Canada's warmest sea waters. Margaree Harbour Beach is a ten minute drive which takes you through a picturesque village with its general store, church, and post office. Whale Cove Beach is just over 2 miles away from Margaree Harbour, the often secluded Chimney Corner beach is about 5 miles away and the Cheticamp Island Beach is about 12 miles away.

The Margaree River is famous for salmon fishing but you can also try it for trout. Enjoy fine dining, whale watching, visiting local craft shops or museums or listening to Cape Breton heritage music.

The property is on the East Margaree Road which runs parallel to the Cabot Trail which lies on the opposite side of the Margaree River. The East side has the advantages of being quieter and more scenic than the Cabot Trail side.

A house or cottage could be constructed with a south-facing view set into the hillside offering both economic and environmental advantages. For those interested in developing properties with friends or family or in leaving a legacy to the next generation, an option exists to buy an additional 4 acres just above the roadside lot. There are also options to buy larger acreages nearby on the East side.

This lot includes riverfront lands which formed part of the Golden Grove Farm, the premier agricultural property in the area since 1791. The Golden Grove has ten of the Margaree's River's salmon pools including two of the best- the famous Dollar Pool and the Forks Pool.
