Property Description

Have you have ever dreamed of owning a large tract of land on a Maine pond or lake but the price tag always had five zeros or more? Check out these 13 acres of heavily forested land directly across from a public park with a boat landing and swimming area just a 1-minute walk away.

This is one nice parcel of land covered with old growth trees and little to no under story make walking this wood lot a pleasure. The land is surrounded by conservation land insuring that you will never have a close neighbor. Sewall Park is directly across the street from the land and has a boat landing and swimming area on Perch Pond, about 400 feet from the property.

The land is lightly sloping up from the road. Grid electric and communication lines are roadside at this location. There is some impressive timber on the land, more than enough to build a home with. Bring your portable saw mill and let’s get busy! The land has an elevated spot near its center which would make a very private home or cabin site.

Perch Pond Forest, which is part of the Caribou Bog this conservation area includes about 2,500 acres with water, trails for hiking and biking, areas open to hunting and fishing and more recreation. All this protected land makes these 13 acres feel much more private than an average 100 acres. You need to see this location.
