Text description provided by the architects. Nestled along the dramatic shoreline of Cape Breton, The Golf Villas at Cabot Links are an invitation to a course, a land and a journey like no other. With its unique brand of pure links play and panoramic vistas, Cabot represents a dramatic departure from the typical golf excursion.
Like the course itself, the Golf Villas at Cabot offer the absolute best of both worlds: An upscale living environment with modern influences and high-end amenities, set against a picturesque backdrop that hearkens back to the game’s very origins. Whether passion for the game or the appreciation of life’s less traveled roads first brought guests to Cabot, the team at the Links hope guests will consider extending their tee time indefinitely.
An escape from the ordinary, elegance has never been more inviting. Overlooking the lush greens and majestic ocean views of Cabot Links, the 2- and 4-bedroom Golf Villas of Cabot Links provide a level of accommodation that is rare to find, yet decidedly easy to appreciate. Because entertaining is an art unto itself, each villa features a fully custom kitchen with oversized stone countertops, premium appliances and a modern, open design. Throughout each living space, accents like detailed wide plank wood floors and unique wood feature walls reveal that even the smallest details have been given the utmost attention. Lounge in the serenity of a private deck with an outdoor fireplace. Take a soak in a freestanding bath. Or relax indoors while enjoying the quiet, refined ambiance of a sanctuary like no other.
From the outset, the team at Omar Gandhi Architect and Jill Greaves Design challenged themselves to create a distinctive aesthetic that’s as captivating as it is welcoming. The result is a serpentine arrangement of wood-clad villas that creates a threshold between the town of Inverness and the now famed Cabot Links golf course. Designed to reflect a simple elegance, each villa’s exterior is clad in finely crafted wooden slats, with a fully glazed façade that looks out toward the sea. To establish a natural sense of balance with its surroundings, each building follows the direction of the gently sloping landscape. The effect is subtle yet profound, creating an attractive and idyllic retreat from the everyday world.
The 2-bedroom, semi-detached villa occupies 1332 square feet, offering a comfortable escape designed entirely by Jill Greaves Design and adorned by endless panoramas. Inside, a master bedroom with en suite (large tub and walk-in shower), an additional bedroom with detached bathroom, an open-concept living space and kitchen with uninterrupted sunset views and expansive private deck.
Each spacious 4-bedroom villa occupies 2297 square feet, offering the ultimate in comfort and design. A master suite and accompanying three additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The free-flowing kitchen and living space features unsurpassed ocean and golf views, opening onto a large private deck. Each villa features a gas fireplace, contemporary décor and multiple seating areas.
