Property Description

Searching for a forested lot in Maine with no recent timber harvesting? Come see this 42.6± improved parcel in the homesteading and outdoor recreational paradise of Brownville, Maine.

Land Features & Improvements – Once a cabin site, the property has a drilled well and private septic system located at the end of a 200-foot-long driveway. An 8X10± storage shed with a poured concrete floor can store your equipment while you build your new cabin or set up an RV site for your camper.

There is commercial timber on this property should you be interested in selling some or use it for your own building and firewood use. The property is mostly hardwood with some softwoods located along the edge of Alder Brook and the outlet of Abbee Pond. These two brooks bisect the land providing riparian habitat that borders the hardwood ridges of the property. Check these brooks out for native wild brook trout and waterfowl hunting.

This is rolling land that starts level along Smith Road then descends to Alder Brook, rises again then descends to Abbee Pond Outlet and then rises again to the highest point of the property. The elevations on this rolling land vary from 515 to 600 FASL. Soils on the property vary from well drained along the ridges to hydric soils under and adjacent to the streams. The soil is growing trees well and could be cleared for garden spots near the building site or food plots in more strategic hunting locations.

Location – The property is located off grid on a private gravel road just south of Schoodic Lake in the small town of Brownville. This road is currently not plowed in the winter and is by permission a local snowmobile trail. Brownville has a population of approximately 1,100. The nearest service town is Milo, about 8 miles away. Dover Foxcroft is about 20 miles away and is the nearest hospital location. Bangor International Airport is 45± miles away.

Uses, Recreation and Points of Interest – This land lends itself well for hunting with the two waterways making pinch points and wildlife funnels. It is not enrolled in the tree growth tax program, so building sites are free from removal penalty. Commercial timber management and harvesting is permitted here. Homesteading in this off grid location would provide lots of privacy yet is nearby other services and trade markets. Trails riders can enjoy the direct access to snowmobile and ATV trails. If you like fishing, the two onsite streams will give up some wild trout and the boat launch on Schoodic Lake is just3 ½ miles drive in Lakeview Village.

Nearby attractions include Schoodic and Sebec Lakes, Moosehead Lake, the Appalachian Trail, Gulf Hagas, Pleasant, Piscataquis and Sebec Rivers, plus more wild trout ponds and lakes than you can count.
