My Tumberland homestead is for sale.

57 acres with cabin & brook running through. $89,000

The cabin was built in 2006/2007 using natural building methods, using hand tools and no power. The garden is a pioneer project in the same natural way, clearing land with pickaxe and spade to grow a bounty of food 100% organically.

Video Walkthrough part 1 of 3:

  • Location: Middle River, Victoria County, Cape Breton, NS
  • 10'x20' cabin plus loft, with wood stove and built-in shelves/table
  • 16'x20' tool shed / wood shed
  • cords and cords of split seasoned firewood (covered and dry)
  • 5'x16' sheltered (roofed) tent pad which is attached to wood shed
  • foundation holes for a new, 2nd cabin (meaning a cleared area in a great location with holes dug, but no building yet, the holes are set for a 16' x 24' cabin)
  • outhouse (dry toilet)
  • 10'x10' kitchen shelter right next to the brook (I used it to do dishes a lot)
  • ca. 10'x16' deck as tent pad in the forest (can hold a MEC basecamp tent to sleep a whole family) - no roof on this one
  • ca. 16x16 fenced area with gate that could be used as a pen.
  • 2'x16' cold frame in garden
  • organic garden consisting mostly of perennials ready to harvest each year: sage, thyme, chives, lovage, lemon balm, oregano, strawberries, highbush blueberry, black currants, rhubarb, tulips (don't eat), crocuses (yum yum), etc. and a few cultivated beds for annual veggies.
  • 7 very rough compost bins, 4 of them filled with decaying goodies in it.
  • some maintained trails, and forest sections with lower branches pruned
  • a long narrow natural meadow that runs parallel to brook, in the center of the property, ready for grazing animals. I thinned out many trees on the meadow to maintain it and make it larger.

If you are looking for land for sale on Cape Breton Island, and Tumberland doesn't suit your needs, I suggest you look at the MLS listings on mls.ca, and also browse through Rare Earth Venuture's land listings. I can only recommend the owners Bernice and Athol Grant as very honest and reliable people to buy land from. To see all of their land listings, go to their Cape Breton Land website.
