Why live in the city when you can work from home in the country? This 170± acre lot is extremely private for you to build on yet is only 15 minutes to the historic city of Bangor Maine. So, you can live away from people but still be close enough to culture when you so desire.
The current owner has invested into the access road and power. The road runs into the lot for about 3,600 feet and brings you to building sites with vista views of the valley to the south. If you have friends or family looking, this would be a great lot to subdivide with multiple choice building sites. The power has been run in from route 46 for about 700 feet to a 5-acre lot which has already been surveyed out of the parent parcel, ready to be sold or gifted to a family member.
The elevations range from 200 to 360 feet above sea level and this topography offers excellent views of Fitz and Chase Mountains in the neighboring town of Dedham. If you are considering solar or wind to power your home, you will find an ideal orientation with the hillside of this property facing southerly.
For a home office, all you need is to order Starlink and you will be up and running with high-speed internet. Sit on your front deck, taking in the panoramic views while working on your laptop, if you want to call that working.
In the valley of the property is a small brook that flows through a five-acre meadow that looks like a wildlife sanctuary. The timber in this east section of the land is mostly softwood fir trees that Maine is famous for. As you increase in elevation, the trees transition to a beautiful mixture of hardwood that will paint an amazing scene with the fall foliage.
The cities of Bangor and Brewer Maine are fifteen minutes to the northwest via route 1A. You will find some fantastic restaurants alongside the scenic waterfront of the Penobscot River. Bangor’s downtown area is vibrant with café’s, shops and restaurants. Enjoy a night out in downtown Bangor at the Penobscot Theatre Company located in the historic Bangor Opera House.
Head about 20 minutes southeast to Maine’s favorite small city of Ellsworth with a population of around 8,500 people. Here you will find a classic downtown area with gift shops and amazing restaurants. Launch your boat at the Ellsworth Park and Marina, boat down Union River Bay, and spend a day out of the ocean overlooking Mount Desert Island or the Blue Hill Peninsula.
