What separates this property from most others is the stunning 52.4+/- acres of land. The cabin sets on the western corner of the land surrounded by maple, beech and other hardwoods. From here the land slopes gently downward to the east. If you want to live off the land you will never worry about heating fuel, with enough hardwood timber on this property to sustain the cabins heating needs indefinitely.
A number of unique features make this a great parcel, one of which is an unusually large boulder located near center of the property, no doubt left there by a retreating glacier. This rock is about 10 feet tall and has been used as a natural deer hunting stand. Another feature is a spring brook that runs through the property. This brook is surrounded by large maples and ash trees and is a natural corridor for game animals.
The location of this property is excellent, located smack in the middle of ridgelines between Beech Hill Pond, Mountainy Pond, Floods Pond and Burnt Pond. The pristine environment of the area is partly due to the semi-remote location and its being surrounded by conservation lands of the Bangor Water District. All this privacy is here yet the cabin is just a 30 minute drive to Bangor International Airport and less than that to the service city of Ellsworth, Maine.
