The Haney Road homesite is a 134.5+- acre parcel of hay fields and timberland. It is located in the low taxed, unorganized township of Connor, Maine. The location is a mix of timberland and farmland properties in Aroostook County. It is a rural area where outdoor recreation is enjoyed by resident and visitor alike. Located just a few miles from Caribou Maine, you get the benefit of country living without a real burden of being too remote. Access to the property is along a sparsely populated public road, that passes through thousands of acres of farm fields and rolling stands of timber.
There are access points near the property to get on the vast interconnected atv and snowmobile trail network. The property and the surrounding woodlands are filled with white tail deer, moose and other game animals. Tracks of both species were clearly seen on the property in the damp earth along the interior road that leads from the paved road to the back of the property nearly 1 mile away. The select harvest of timber that was completed 14 years ago, left a healthy forest ecosystem, with food and cover for ruffed grouse, whitetail deer, moose and other northern Maine game animals. Nearby you can find the Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge which was formed from land formerly owned by Loring Air Force Base. The refuge provides opportunities to view birds, and animals native to the area.
The 134.5+- acre tract of land has power at the road, so you can conveniently build a home near grid power. If you would prefer to live off-grid, well you could do that as well. Multiple options for homesites can be found on the property. The property was harvested about 14 years ago and there is still a very good stocking of mixed wood, hardwood as well as soft wood. The road that was cleared to access the timber, winds thru the property. Along its course are several potential off-grid homesites that could be used. There are two cleared fields of approximately 20 acres of rich farm soils located near the road side of the property. The first field is convenient to power and at one time was the site of a home that has long since burned down. Parts of the fireplace hearth can be seen amongst the rose bushes and nearby lilac tree that were planted by the old home. The old barn still remains, and could possibly be saved or removed and some of the materials reclaimed for building a new home. The second field is screened from the road by a strip of mature timber. This too could make a nice home site convenient to utility power, or off-grid if you prefer cutting the chord from the utilities. If you want even more privacy and wish to utilize all the cleared acreage for growing crops, then building further into the interior of the property would be a nice option. The land lends itself to fairly easy construction as it is relatively flat with some small elevation changes throughout the acreage. This is a very nice parcel of farm and timber land with excellent recreational possibilities.
The soil maps of the property indicate that the predominant soil is quite rich providing a good environment for timber and crop growth. The neighboring properties that are used for growing potatoes, oats, hay and more highlight the quality soils of the area. The USDA soil maps indicate that nearly 100% of the parcel has soil that can handle intense farming. The soils are described as gravely loams with 2-8% slopes. Clearing more of the acreage over time would yield very good crop land to add to the nearly 20 acres of currently cleared acreage. Having wooded land with good soils produces healthy stands of timber. This is a great parcel of land, located in a beautiful part of the state. Call today to make it yours!
