Our future home view in Cape Breton
Time to move on!
Gundi and I have now been living in these lovely Northumberland Hills for nineteen years. This has been a very happy and fulfilling period in our lives. Gundi has continued and elaborated her glass art sculptures and also returned to work (and play) with textiles in endless inspired forms. And I have put my heart into being an organic market farmer, growing specialty salad greens, herbs, and vegetables and taking them to twice-weekly markets, mostly in Toronto.
We are now up for a fresh challenge and the next chapter in our lives. We are embracing the prospect of living right on the ocean. A little cove in Cape Breton is calling us as our new home.
First, there is the little matter of selling our home, farm and land here. We are keen to pass on this special property (which has never seen chemicals) to conscientious buyers who will continue to steward it organically with a low-energy footprint. Lots of organic prospects responded to our posting on ecoproperty.ca and we had several viewings but we were unable to agree sales terms. And so, we are now on the open market, listed through Kim Hadwen of Century 21. Kim is a farmer turned real estate agent who specializes in farm properties in Hastings and Northumberland counties.
So, if you know of anyone who would love to own a secluded, very private farm property with an open concept artsy home and 55 acres of mixed hilltop with panoramic views, pastured fields, market garden, greenhouses, woodland, and wetland...
UPDATE: THE FARM IN NORTHUMBERLAND IS SOLD, THE HOME IN CAPE BRETON IS PURCHASED!
After our winter break on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, ocean here we come!
