M8L7 South Twin Island, Old Town, Maine, 04468
This is the most unique island property for sale in Maine. It is located in the center of one of central Maine’s largest lakes. The island has grid power, a drilled well, and comes with two mainland lots for dock access and a garage. All of this is less than 20 minutes from Bangor International Airport.
ISLAND & CABIN – Over 10 acres of old-growth forest covers South Twin Island in Pushaw Lake. The tree canopy is nearly 100 percent closed with little to no undergrowth on the forest floor. Hiking around the island in the shade of huge hemlocks, pines and oaks is an absolute pleasure. The island will provide more than enough fire wood should you choose to heat with a wood stove.
The cabin is situated on a high point of land in the northeast corner of the island. There are views up and down the lake from this location. The orientation of the island at the cabin location, with two dock locations, has protected docking from southern, northern and/or westerly winds. The island is less than a five-minute boat ride from the mainland lots.
The 1950’s cabin has been remodeled with many improvements in the past 2 years including: a new metal roof, completely rebuilt 1/3 of the cabin, several doors and windows replaced, a freeze preventing heat strip from the well to the cabin was added, new interior knotty pine finished walls and ceiling, both with new insulation, new kitchen cabinets and sink, new shower enclosure and bathroom sink, new sill posts and more. The floor plan for the living area is an L shaped open space, plus 2 bedrooms and a bath partitioned inside the 800+ square foot cabin. The island has grid power via underwater cable from the mainland to an industrial transformer located on the island. The electrical wiring, installed by a previous owner, is up to date with circuit breakers.
MAINLAND – Two lots on the mainland make this the most convenient island property to use and enjoy that we have ever seen. An easy drive over a town maintained paved road brings you to your own lakefront lot. Add a boat lift for worry-free boat storage and access point to the island. Directly across Woodland Avenue from the lake lot, is another lot with a garage for vehicle storage, included in sale.
LAKE – Pushaw Lake was surveyed by the State of Maine at over 5,000 surface acres, 28 feet deep and nearly 7 ½ miles long. It is a warmwater fishery with smallmouth bass and northern pike being the target sport fish. Bring your bass boat and explore the many islands, coves, points and shoals for large bass and pike. Pushaw is also a great place to take your party boat for a long evening cruise around the lake. No matter what you love to do on the water, this is a large and accessible lake to do it on.
LOCATION – Twin Island is located in Old Town and Glenburn, Maine. If you need accessibility, culture and convenience with your new waterfront property, this is the place for you. The cabin is located about 10 miles from the downtown center of the Old Town. This small town of less than 8,000 people offers conveniences from grocery stores, boutique shops to major hardware stores. Even closer to the cabin is the University of Maine flagship campus at Orono. Catch a Black Bear football or hockey game less than 15 minutes from the cabin or enroll in that class you have been thinking about.
Northern Maine’s largest city of Bangor is only 16 miles from the property with many opportunities for shopping, health care, fine dining restaurants, casino, Cross Insurance Event Center, Waterfront Concert Series on the banks of the Penobscot River and many more annual cultural events. This is one of the friendliest, safest and cleanest cities in the northeast to visit.
