Property Description

Located in Danforth, Maine is a 36± acre country homesite. The property has over 1600 feet of frontage along Route 169 in Danforth.  The lot was commercially logged in 2011 leaving a well-spaced property with a mixed age growth stand of mixed wood.  There are tall oak, pine, maple and spruce growing above the understory of young regen.  Poking out throughout the property are apple trees of unknown cultivar, but many had fruit set on them, with some planning a readymade orchard could be reestablished for the property.  The property has power available at the street and would be a great location for a country homesite, recreational cabin site or perhaps a place to park an RV during the warmer months of the year.

A newly constructed 10 by 16-foot building is situated in one of two clearings on the property.  The building could be a storage shed, small cabin, or perhaps a tiny house.  The property is located directly across from Hot Brook Lake and its public boat launch, making access to the over 900-acre lake, very convenient.  Hot Brook Lake is managed as trophy bass water and also is home to a very good white perch population as well.  Nearby ATV and ITS trails make recreational vehicle riding from the property a breeze.

Whether you are looking for a place to build a sustainable homestead, hunting camp, or just a getaway spot in the country, this property deserves a look.  This is a great parcel of land that has many potential building sites.  It has a gently sloping topography that makes building very easy.  The last logging operation opened up two nice clearings as well as road ways through the forest providing access to areas deeper into the heart of the property.  Call today to schedule a viewing of the acreage in the heart of Washington County’s recreational center, Danforth, Maine.
