Gorgeous Mount Katahdin Views with a Trout Stream

Enjoy incredible sunset views framed by Mount Katahdin from this property located in Silver Ridge Township in southern Aroostook County. If you are looking for the perfect parcel for recreation, a vacation home or self-sufficient living, this is the property that will fulfill all those needs and more. The 164 +/- acres of tillable fields and forest fronts a state maintained paved road with electric and phone at the street. As a waterfront bonus the entire western boundary of the property is one of the region's best live water trout streams.

The land consists of approximately 10 acres of road front fields with about 2,000 feet along a paved road. NRCS data indicates these fields are composed of quality farming soil. An access driveway is in place near the southern bounds of the road front. Organic growers can take advantage of the opportunity to work the land as no commercial farming has occurred here in many years. The balance of the acreage is composed of a mixed growth forest that transitions from mostly hardwood trees behind the fields to conifers as the land descends towards the stream. The quantity of trees will provide more than enough firewood for a lifetime of home heating plus growing stock for future timber sales. There is an opportunity to promote the growth of maple for a sugar bush operation. The current owner does not have the land enrolled in the tree growth tax program. You may choose to enroll but with taxes in this Maine UT township at $510 per year, it is not necessary.

The property has 2,500 +/- feet frontage along Molunkus Stream. A cold running tributary of the Mattawamkeag River, this little known live water has a quality wild brook trout fishery. Most fishing pressure on the Molunkus is near maintained road crossings. The remote location of this property's water frontage will provide the fishermen maximum privacy. This is a great stream for wilderness canoeing.

The area around this property is home to some of Maine's most impressive whitetail deer. The deep dense forest, ample winter snowfalls, nearby agricultural properties and available water all have combined to produce a local deer population with impressive antler growth and large body size. Moose, black bear, ruffed grouse, wild turkey and other game are sure to keep the avid hunter busy for most of the year. This quality parcel is located on the southern boundary of Silver Ridge Township, a rural town with a population less than 100. The region is made up of small villages and family farms along the maintained roads. Vast undeveloped forestlands, numerous lakes, ponds, rivers and streams make up the majority of the landscape. The property is located about 33 miles north of Lincoln and 50 miles south of Houlton. Both of these service centers have shopping, hospitals and all the necessities of life. Bangor International Airport is 85 miles away or an hour twenty minute drive time from the property.
