County: Aroostook
0 Blackwater Road, Masardis ME 04732

Property Description

237 +/- acres of land with frontage on a year round accessible paved road in the northern Maine forest. Come take a closer look at this well rounded land investment.

The property has about 498 +/- feet of paved road frontage on Blackwater Road in Masardis, Maine. There is phone and electricity along this road for easy hookup to the grid. If you want to be on the grid look for a building site near the road, or choose the off grid lifestyle and build high on the hill near the center of the land and be rewarded with the quiet, privacy and nice views from that location. The land is high in elevation with the topography varying from +/- 600 to 735 FASL.

This mixed wood forest has had a recent timber harvest done which has improved the existing interior road system, added a new one and thinned the overstocked forest. NRCS soil survey shows about 52% of this site to be of high quality gravel/silt loams ideal for farming. Or course, tree and stump removal will need to happen before you plant the veggies! The quality soils of this site are already regenerating new growth which is attracting wildlife to the property. Areas left untouched by the harvest provide good cover for game.

Masardis is an area of Maine with a tradition of outdoor recreation from hunting, fishing, canoeing and hiking. The nearby Aroostook River is a beautiful river for paddling and fishing. A public access point is just over a mile from the land. ATV riding can be done from the property and an incredible interstate snowmobile trail system runs through Masardis. Access to both the Oxbow and Ashland gates of the North Maine Woods are less than 20 minutes from the property, opening the door to millions of acres to explore your outdoor dreams.

Shopping for provisions can be done in Ashland, about 10 miles north of the land, or in the city of Presque Isle just 32 +/- miles from the property.
