If you have been searching for a place to build your new home, vacation cottage or cabin in the Ellsworth and Blue Hill Region of Maine, check out this 10.27 +/- acre wooded parcel on the corner of Blue Hill Road and Granite Rock Circle in Surry, Maine.
The 10.27 +/- acres of timbered land has a survey recorded in the Hancock County Registry of Deeds. With over 1,400 feet of frontage on two roads, your privacy is insured. Electric is on both roads. The land is heavy with softwoods such as white pine, balsam fir and spruce with a scattering of maple trees throughout. The land is restricted to single family homes with covenants to protect your investment value.
The location is at the north end of the Blue Hill Peninsula. This is a part of the mid-coast that doesn’t get the tourist traffic like Bar Harbor to the north and Camden to the south. This is a place of small fishing villages, quiet summer cottages, thousands of acres of conserved lands, hiking and biking trails and more. Check out the beach just a few miles from the property at Newbury Neck and while you are over there get a “lobstah” dinner at Perry’s Lobster Shack!
Blue Hill with a population of 2,600, is just 6 miles south of the land and has a hospital, grocery store, coastal shops and markets, quality restaurants. Fun things in Blue Hill include the reversing falls at the confluence of a large salt pond and the Atlantic Ocean, a hike up to the top of Blue Hill Mountain to gain an ocean view, a trip to the historic downtown area and paddling kayaks in the sheltered waters of Blue Hill Bay.
Eight miles north of Surry is Ellsworth, the county seat of Hancock County. Ellsworth has been one of the fastest growing small cities in Maine over the past 20 years. This is the gateway to Bar Harbor and the major service center for most of northern mid-coast Maine. Not as well-known as Portland and Bangor, this cozy town has some quality restaurants who have access to some of the best seafood supply in the state. There are many boutique shops along with bigger box stores.
