On a recent hike through the snow-covered property, stands of fir, cedar, tamarack, and some aspen were traversed.  The property was last logged in 2021 and is in a state of regrowth.  The properties surrounding this one are all timber properties and homesteads.  A bit further out you find farm fields and more timber.  This is an area filled with wildlife habitat.  Deer, bear, moose and more are all found on and around this property.  Nearby the Little Madawaska River and other brooks and streams can be accessed for a pleasant paddle on a spring day in pursuit of a hungry brook trout.  There is a small feeder stream that flows into the Little Madawaska River after crossing through the property.  There is approximately 2700 feet of brook frontage on the property.  Evidence of beaver making ponds on these brooks from time to time is very evident. If you are looking for your own 4-season property to have as a hunting tract, homestead, or a long-term timber holding, the Madawaska Road property may be the one for you.  It is located in the quiet community of New Sweden with a population of about 570 people.  Just 9 miles away you have access to the city of Caribou with its population of about 7500 people.  Caribou is your service center community where you have shopping, dining and healthcare providers.  A bit further south you will find the city of Presque Isle which is 28 miles away.  Here you have access to the University of Maine at Presque Isle as well as Northern Maine Community College.  Presque Isle is also the location of the Northern Maine Regional Airport with daily jet service to the rest of the world.  The Madawaska Road Homestead property is a great opportunity to purchase a tract of land in Aroostook County.

Sixty acres of recently harvested woodland for sale in the town of Madawaska, Maine.  The parcel is located on a town maintained paved road, in a rural part of the town.  The land around the property is largely farmland and timberland.  This property has everything that a recreational land buyer is looking for.  Great access, very good soils, privacy, a babbling brook, utility power available and access to ATV and ITS trail system.  This is a great long term land parcel to buy and hold.  The recent wood harvest was exceptionally well done.  I walked the property recently and found it to be one of the best-looking harvested lots I have seen in recent memory. The property has a roughly 5 and ½ acre spruce plantation that was expertly thinned during the most recent harvest.  This will allow the remaining trees to develop into saw logs for a future harvest.  The remaining acreage is primarily a mixed wood stand that has a few cleared patch cuts and the rest was thinned very well which will again allow the remaining young wood to fully develop for a future harvest. The soils map indicate that the majority of the property has class 2 and 3 farm soils which would allow you to grow about any crop you desire once the land is cleared.  The topography of the lot has several flat areas and some sloping portions.  It is a very attractive property.  If you are looking for a larger parcel to build a home or recreational cabin in the Saint John Valley, this is a property you will want to consider.   It has great access off of the paved public road with over 800 feet of frontage on the road.  It has an interior road that bisects the property of nearly 1300 feet that provides access to the interior of the property.  A driveway to either side of this road would yield access to several potential building sites. As a hunting property you will find deer, moose, ruffed grouse and more on and near this property.  Moose and grouse sign was found throughout the property on a recent walk.  There is a small seasonal brook that bisects the parcel.  Nearby there are larger trout streams as well as Long Lake which would provide the trout and salmon angler many opportunities to fish for both brook trout and landlocked salmon.  If you are a fan of golf, the Long Lake Country Club is just down the street.  ATV and snowmobile riders will be thrilled to learn that the trail system is easily accessed from the property.  This sixty-acre property in Madawaska has it all.  Call today to view it, before it is gone.

Hunters Hideaway Sold

Hunters Hideaway

Ashland, ME
Aroostook
Hunters Hideaway is a large tract of recreational timberland for sale in Ashland, Maine.  The ninety plus or minus acre parcel of harvested timberland was last cut around 2012.  The most recent harvest provided a nice gravel interior road to the center of the lot, and a really nice-looking stand of young aspen and birch amongst the taller softwood trees remaining from the prior harvest.  The property is located in an area with a healthy deer population.  This section of the town of Ashland has a large deer wintering area.  Knowledgeable deer hunters look to the Ashland area, especially late season, as deer are migrating from their summer areas to this area to “yard up” for the winter. The topography of the lot is fairly flat through the majority of the parcel, but drops off to the west.  Opening up a majestic view looking over the valley to the west is easily obtained by clearing a few acres of timber along the hillside.  Building a cabin in that area would provide great sunsets as well as nice summer breezes from the prevailing winds from the west.  Along with a flat topography the land has very good soils with 70% of the acreage having class 2 soils.  Class 2 soils can handle intense farming.  They also grow healthy stands of trees. Throughout the acreage there is sign of moose, deer and small game.   Several rubs, and lots of droppings and sign of browsing by whitetail on the fresh hardwood shoots show the presence of whitetail deer on the property.  This is an outstanding parcel that is surrounded by farmland, rivers and streams as well as timberland of various age class.  This is a location that with some advance preparation, some patience and time should yield opportunities to harvest a mature whitetail buck.  On a recent visit to the property, I encountered a shed hunter who showed me a nice 10-point rack he had found that morning as he was headed into the woods to look for a couple more drops from larger bucks he had seen on the property.  At the very back of the property the local ITS trail crosses by.  So, you do have direct trail access from the property with just a small amount of clearing. This is a great opportunity to purchase a tract of recreational timberland that you can utilize to hunt, camp and recreate on while each and every year the young forest grows larger with time.  The property has good access off the Frenchville Road and is just 20 miles from Presque Isle, and about 5 miles from the center of Ashland where you will find a small grocery store, furniture store, auto repair facilities and a few other small businesses.  Ashland is the gateway to the North Maine Woods which is an area of roughly 3.5 million acres of working forest.  Here you will find numerous trout filled waters, grouse filled patches of early successional forestland, large numbers of moose, and very few people.  If this sounds appealing to you, then give me a call so we can take a walk and view the potential of Hunters Hideaway, in Ashland, Maine.
