Round houses come with many benefits, but this one is in a class by itself. "Fine Homebuilding Magazine" thought so when they featured it in their monthly issue. This striking home is the shape of choice for strength, energy efficiency, good ventilation and air circulation and is less vulnerable in strong winds. "Circular living provides a balance of looking inward and outward: looking out at the natural environment and surroundings but then coming in again to the self and the hearth." (David Raitt, noted builder). Looking outward provides a variety of vistas on this 7.3 acre (5 cleared) property - rolling wooded grounds, tended fields, fenced vegetable gardens, northern mountain chain, ocean bay and visiting moose. Looking inward is equally pleasing - 3 levels, 3 bedrooms, 3 wood stoves, open plan kitchen/dining/living room, screened porch, decks and 2 spectacular bespoke staircases. The home is both spacious and cozy with interesting architectural features. The part of the house you don't see, inside the walls, the roof and the foundation, was built to a very high standard. Detailed specs are available. Custom furnishings stay with the house as do all contents including tools in the workshop and canoe on the dock. The attractive 2 storey garage/workshop with upper level north-light studio is perfect for the artist or wood worker. This turnkey property is very privately situated in an area renowned for its natural beauty - Aspy Bay (one of Cape Breton's finest sand beaches) and the Highlands National Park.
