Lot 3S Eagles Cove Road, T3R9 NWP, Maine, 04417
This contemporary home at Eagle Cove on West Lake is a special opportunity to own an off grid solar powered home on a protected cold-water Maine lake.
Living off the grid does not have to be roughing it. This 3-bedroom 2 bath contemporary home enjoys all modern conveniences in an unspoiled wilderness area. The home takes advantage of the lake views with large windows from floor to the cathedral ceiling in the living room and dining area. Living space is well appointed with attractive wood flooring and exposed beams. Two first floor bedrooms and two baths plus a loft that can sleep four comfortably provide plenty of space for family and friends.
The sunroom is the perfect spot to enjoy the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, while the low maintenance composite lakeside deck makes the perfect summer BBQ spot. A full concrete walkout basement could be finished for additional space if needed. A concrete patio is shaded by the deck above.
Off Grid Utilities
The home is powered by a combination of solar panels and LP gas generator. The battery bank, inverter and other controls are housed in the basement. Heating is done with LP gas and battery power. A gas stove in the living area is a nice touch, along with gas heaters in the bedrooms and electric toe heaters in each bath. A direct vent gas heater is more than enough to keep the basement comfortable. Water is from a drilled well and waste management by a full septic system. The generator is housed in its own building that has plenty of room for lawn and garden tool storage.
Best Lakefront Lot
The 1.1 +/- acre West Lake lot has 200 +/- feet of frontage. What makes this land stand out from any other is the curve of the shoreline enabling near panoramic views of the water and the undeveloped and forever protected southern shoreline. Access to the water is excellent with a groomed path to the water and a dock system.
West Lake has excellent water quality and clarity. 1,344 surface acres is good for swimming, boating and fishing. With depths to 70 feet and an inflow of cold water, the lake’s incredible smelt population keeps the landlocked salmon and brook trout fishery going strong.
The West Lake region is surrounded by public lands and additional conservation land totaling approximately 50,000 acres. This includes the 30,600 acre Duck Lake Unit of Maine Public Reserve Lands and the 21,000 acre Maine For Lands Future Easement around Nicatous Lake which is administered by the Forest Society of Maine. These two combined areas preserve and conserve dozens of miles of shoreline and thousands of acres of forestland, most of which is open to public recreational use.
Eagle Cove was developed within the conservation area with a limited number of permitted lots. A few cottages and homes are built here with gated access for privacy. A purchase here will ensure your value and the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that what you see here now is what you will have.
