This well-loved 2 bedroom cottage has been in the same family since 1973, and it’s easy to see why! With 135 feet of direct ocean front on the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait and within walking distance of Waterside Beach, this property is the dream getaway! Across the road there is public access to Caribou Bay which is a popular kayaking, canoeing and paddle-boarding spot and the ideal place to watch shorebirds and wildlife. At low tide, the beach in front of the cottage emerges and welcomes sun-seekers, beachcombers and swimmers, offering the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. The shoreline was fully armoured in 2014 to prevent erosion. At a current cost of $500+ per foot, this saves you over $65,000 in rock work! The cottage has great bones and has been kept clean and ready for its new owners. The roof is in great shape and several new vinyl windows have been installed. New siding and some cosmetic work is recommended. This 4-season home is well insulated, including the attic, has electric baseboard heat and a drilled well. Because of its location on the property, there is ample room to build on. The cottage is being sold fully furnished, so if you’re a handy person, you can move right in and do the work yourself! From the deck you can see the ferry crossings to PEI and Caribou Island and enjoy spectacular sunsets! The location is ideal, being close to all amenities and the town of historic Pictou. Take advantage of this great price and turn this reasonably priced cottage into your family’s new vacation destination!
