LOCATION The land is located at 1186 US Route 1 in Whiting. This rural Washington County town has a population of just 482. Yes, it is rural and quiet, but conveniently, Whiting is less than 20 minutes from the bustling coastal town of Machias, Maine. Whiting is steeped in history dating back to its settlement in 1785. Its rich heritage is complemented by its natural beauty.

LAND FEATURES The property is surrounded by conservation lands, including the 12,000-acre Cutler Coast Ecological Reserve to the south and west. This public reserve land extends from Route 1 in Whiting to the bold coast in Cutler. Known for its miles of coastal trails along the dramatic cliffs bordering the Atlantic Ocean, the land is also open to hunting, fishing, and other outdoor pursuits.

More than 300 acres of The Maine Coast Heritage Trust lands border the property to the east and south. Directly across Route 1 from the land the MCHT Rocky Lake Preserve has over 3,000 acres with nearly 6 miles of protected lake frontage on Rocky and Orange Lake. This preserve offers hunting, fishing, paddling, hiking trails, and camping sites. All this surrounding land makes the property feel much larger than its 94± acres.

The land boasts approximately 450 feet of frontage along Route 1, complete with access to electricity and communication infrastructure roadside. A driveway entrance has been started.

A highlight of the land is a scenic beaver pond and the brook flowing out of it, adding to its natural appeal. This small brook can be bridged to access a beautiful south sloping ridge near the center of the acreage.

 The NRCS mapping indicates soils suitable for farming, timber production and wildlife habitats. The pleasantly rolling land has elevations ranging from 100 to 180 feet above sea level. Here you will find a diverse array of tree species, including spruce, fir, pine, and cedar along with a variety of hardwood trees.

POINTS OF INTEREST Along with the surrounding conservation lands, this area has even more to offer. Nearby lakes such as Indian, Orange, Rocky, Roaring, and Gardner Lake provide ample opportunities for water recreation just minutes from the property.

Trail riders can enjoy the adjoining trail system and access the nearby Down East Sunrise trail with nearly 90 miles of multi-use trail extending from Calais in the north to the city of Ellsworth in Hancock County.

The city of Machias has cultural events, the University of Maine at Machias, and boat access to Machias Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
