Why You'll Love It

If you are searching for a large rural parcel of land that is private but still easy to get to, let’s put this 50± acres of forested land with a babbling brook on your list to visit. Paved road frontage, access to the grid power, a brook, a driveway and more. This is ready for you to build your new home or cabin on.

LAND DETAILS The land consists of 50± acres of mostly forested land. One area has been cleared for a potential building site and there are many other possible sites to build on. A 750± foot driveway is gated and accesses the cleared building site. Grid electricity runs along the road frontage eliminating the need for high-cost energy solutions. Communication lines are buried roadside.

Trees on the property include some nice examples of red oak and other hardwoods along with white pine, spruce, cedar, larch, and balsam fir. NRCS soil mapping shows a lot of Plaisted and Colton loam and gravel at this location. This is fantastic soil for tree production and, on the more level areas of the property, would be good for agricultural uses when cleared of trees.

The one water feature on the property is a small unnamed brook that flows through a portion of the northwest side of the land, before flowing into the Piscataquis River which is directly across the road from the land. This is a babbling brook that appears to flow most, if not all year round.

Elevations on site range from 160 FASL along the road frontage and rise steadily to just over 300 FASL near the back of the property. This elevation gain accomplishes two things. First it gets you up and out of the potential flood plain of the nearby river and second, with some clearing there will be some nice views of the distance hills, mountains, and forest.

Wildlife likely to be seen on this property include whitetail deer, moose, black bear, snowshoe hare, wild turkey and ruffed grouse, not to mention squirrel, racoons, otters,…. We think you get the idea!

LOCATION DETAILS We said it is a rural area and we are not kidding. The population of this small town is less than 100 people. Most of Maxfield is forested land with a few small fields and private farms scattered around the municipality. The remote feel is complimented by easy access to good roads. There is an onramp and exit to Interstate 95 just 5 miles east of the land. The City of Bangor is just a 35-minute drive from the property. Nearby service towns of Howland and Lincoln are just 5 miles and 15 miles respectively. 

Nearby points of interest include an area hospital located in Lincoln. The Penobscot and Piscataquis Rivers and public boat landings on each are only minutes away. The large central Maine lakes of Cold Stream Pond and Schoodic Lake are about ½ hour drive. Baxter State Park, The Appalachian Trail and Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument are about an hour. The University of Maine at Orono, the largest college in Maine, is about 20 minutes from the property. This is the ideal base camp for many cultural and outdoor activities in the northern half of Maine.
