Property DescriptionLand for sale
The South of Fish Stream Homesite tract of land is a 25+- acre unimproved timber parcel. Located off of the Cow Team Road, this tract of land is part of a larger lot that is part of the South of Fish Stream division of land that was created in 1996. The timber tract has frontage on both the Cow Team Road and the Webber Road. Having over 1360 feet of road frontage makes all of this property easily accessible. The property has a heavy stocking of mixed wood, with a large portion being fir trees. This parcel is an excellent small timber tract for having an affordable piece of Maine as an investment diversification.
The property is accessed from the Cow Team Road, which is plowed to just before the property in the winter. The parcel is only 1600 +- feet from Fish Stream, which is a tributary to the Mattawamkeag River. Fish Stream is navigable and is excellent for canoeing and fishing with a good population of native brook trout. The forested area surrounding the property has only 3 nearby neighbors, two of which are seasonal camps and one, off-grid property being occupied year-round. If you are looking for a possible off-grid homesite or cabin site, this property is worth a serious look.
The woods around the property are home to ruffed grouse, snow shoe hare, white tailed deer and moose. Speaking of white tail deer, this area has some serious whitetail bucks that roam the forests surrounding this property. One of Maine’s largest bucks was taken very close to this property. The fabled Potato Pile Buck. The following comes from North American Whitetail’s September 22, 2010 issue written by Dick Idol: “It is indeed impressive, and not just for a potato farm. Decades later, the rack alone still weighs over 10 pounds! The gross typical score of the basic 5×5 frame is a whopping 209 2/8 inches, among the highest ever. Unfortunately, there are 16 inches of deductions, but even with them figured in, the net Boone and Crockett score comes to 192 2/8: easily Maine’s state record then, and still the top mark today.”
The South of Fish Stream Homesite would fit the bill as a small timber investment. A superior hunting and fishing recreational cabin location. It would also fit the bill as an off-grid homesite. The property is surrounded by conservation ground owned by the Nature Conservancy as well as large tracts of working forests. If you are looking for property that abuts large tracts of conservation ground, then this property is one of a very few properties that ever come to market. Call today!
