Why You'll Love It

This year-round Pleasant Lake cottage sits about 30' from your 157 feet of shoreline on this spring fed lake. The cottage has had a complete makeover in the past year to make it a year-round home including a new well and septic system. The 1-acre lot offers a nice amount of privacy and some incredible sunsets out over the lake! 

Pleasant Lake, Alexander ME... This 800 sq ft cottage was totally redone over the past year to make it a year-round home. The cottage is fully insulated, with new windows and a metal roof. It is sitting on cement pads and has extra's to make sure it is fully supported, underneath was fully insulated and has automatic opening/closing ventilation installed. Electrical updates were done, 200 amp service installed, but 100 amp to cottage and the addition of a generator hook up. The new well produces 18 gallons a minute so water should never be an issue! The road is a private road for the owners on it, with it being a private ROW, there is no formal association, care and maintenance have always been mutually shared by the owners on the road. The floorplan is pretty open and "user friendly", offering great natural light and beautiful water views from the kitchen, dining, and the bedroom. There is a small loft over the bedroom to be used as a sleeping loft or for storage. On the back side you will find the utility closets with your mechanicals, a large new bathroom and laundry. 

When the new septic and pump up leach field were installed, the sellers also had the drainage issue taken care of around the cottage adding French drains and diverting most of the water away from the cottage. 

The cottage has not been added onto and 30% is allowed by the town. The sellers do have in place permits to add a 10 x 12 bedroom and an 8 x 10 mud room. Outside you also have a nice new storage shed by the side of the driveway. 

Pleasant Lake: 339 acres, 36' maximum depth. Fishing normally produces landlock salmon, white perch, and small mouth bass. 

Alexander was an unorganized township until immediately after statehood. For election purposes, Alexander was made Plantation #16 by the Legislature in 1820. Several years later the residents petitioned for Plantation #16 to become an incorporated town. The name Alexander was chosen, after Alexander Baring. Alexander was Maine's 258th town incorporated on January 19, 1825. 

The industries for the area were logging, farming, dairy, pigs, and cattle, then pastures became blueberry fields, and that industry still is popular for the area.
