Lot 8 Johnson Flat Road, Pittsfield, Maine, 04457
595 +/- acres of forested land for hunting and recreation plus timber management for a solid return on investment.
The forest is a mixture of tree species with spruce, fir, pine, cedar, maples, birch, poplar and others. A recent timber harvest thinned about ⅔ of the land leaving the remaining lands untouched insuring a desirable uneven aged forest into the future. A series of roads have been constructed through the land helping to gain access to its more remote regions.
Topography on the site is a very gentle slope with elevations from 205 to 300 +/- feet above sea level rising from Johnson Flat Road for nearly a mile to the northern bounds of the land. NRCS soil mapping suggests the land is a mixture of silt loams and stony silt loams that are good for growing timber and some could be used for grazing land and limited farming. Food plots could be created here.
The property is divided into two lots by a utility line. The division creates a couple of advantages. Divided into two lots already there is an opportunity to immediately divide a portion of the land for resale or sharing the purchase with a friend or family member without subdivision approval. Secondly the utility clearing provides edge cover that whitetail deer appreciate.
The property has several water features including about 3,400 +/- feet of frontage on Johnson Brook. 2 private ponds totaling about 2 acres of surface area have about 1,500 +/- waterfront. An unnamed brook runs through the property for an additional 2,500 +/- feet. There are a number of places along more than a mile of brooks and pond frontage that would be a great place to build a remote woods cabin getaway.
Location of this property is excellent for those living and working in and around Boston, Massachusetts or Portland, Augusta and Waterville, Maine. Just 3 hours 15-minute drive from Boston, it is easy to get to with mostly I-95 driving. After a day of hunting and recreating, you can be at restaurants, entertainment and shops within 30-minute drive of the property.
