The Portland Lake parcel is a unique mix of farmland, timberland and waterfrontage for sale in Maine. Nowhere else will you find this diverse mixture of property types at this price per acre.
THE LAND and BUILDINGS
The 272 +/- acres includes approximately 60 acres of open land and tillable fields. The NRCS soil survey indicates these areas are gravelly, silty and shaly loams. The farmland can produce a yearly return from a farm lease or could provide your own agricultural needs. For the hunter the small fields in the forest are ideal food plot locations. The timberland making up the balance of the property is a mixture of hardwood and softwood trees of various species. The property fronts a public paved road for approximately 1,650 feet with electric on site and phone at the street.
Situated near the center of the road frontage is a large insulated Quonset hut building. The building was used at one time for potato storage and now is rented to a local farmer for equipment and vehicle storage. This is not a written lease and can be terminated prior to closing should you need the immediate use of the building. Next to the Quonset hut is a small chicken coup and a drilled well.
Portland Lake is a naturally occurring Maine great pond with depths in excess of 50 feet. The pond is home to native eastern brook trout and the owners report some large fish being caught. The property surrounds about 4,700 feet of the 41 acre pond. This is a spring fed clear and deep pond. The sale includes a small cabin in need of much repair. If you are interested in building a new camp there are options for that as well. The lake is large enough to support a float plane for the pilots out there looking for a retreat property. The outlet stream of the pond flows through the timberland and provides great habitat for moose and whitetail deer.
