Want an off grid get away? This 72-acre lot in LaGrange fronts on the Sagerson road, which is a seasonal gravel road, that’s located about 1 mile off the town-maintained Medford Road. This parcel of land is in the Tree Growth program saving you property taxes, but it has a 1-acre building site excluded from the program.
The timber on the property consists of softwood and hardwood stands with patches of mixed growth. The land is gently rolling with elevations between 310 and 350 feet above sea level. An interesting aspect of the land is the shape of the lot, which is almost the perfect shape of a baseball diamond. There’s no field of dreams here, but if you’re looking for privacy, this could very well be your dream property. The soils are predominantly Chesuncook Telos and Chesuncook Elliottsville which are stony soils but may allow some pasture if you are looking for an off-grid homestead.
Enjoy some spring trout fishing at Cold Stream which is only a few minutes walk from the property. With ATV access close by it’s a great spot of land to build an off-grid camp, or even if you really want privacy, an off-grid home. If you’re not into ATVing, that same ATV access is also used for hiking, mountain biking, and snowmobiling. If you enjoy canoeing or kayaking, the Piscataquis river is just a few miles down the road.
Despite being remote and private, about 15 minutes away is the town of Milo. Milo has a Dunkin Donuts, Dollar store, grocery store, Walgreens and a House of Pizza. So, you’ll still be close to your essentials while being able to relax away from it all. But, if you do choose to get back into it, the city of Bangor is about 40 minutes away with shopping, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The town of LaGrange is about a 4-hour drive from Boston. The town was established in 1832 and today has a population of under 1,000 people. Overall if you’re looking for an off-grid property with access to recreation, groceries, and a close distance to some city life, this 72-acre lot is for you.
