Have you sold or have pending a real estate investment and need a quality 1031 exchange replacement property? Are you dreaming about a kingdom sized parcel to create a hunting and recreational retreat? Is it time to develop that homestead with room to grow? Let’s explore 514± forested acres of land in Sebec, Maine.
LAND TIMBER WATER – This land is rolling topography with elevations from 480 to 840 FASL. Stony silt loams make up most of the soil types on this parcel and are suitable for growing a multitude of timber species as well as non-timber vegetation preferred by wildlife.
The forest on this land has had timber stand improvement harvesting done within the past 10 years. The current mixed wood stand is diverse, uneven aged, well-spaced and growing well. Future timber management is enhanced with nearly 9,000 feet of frontage on Colonels Road and an additional 8,000+ feet of well-built roads accessing the interior of the land.
Smith Brook is the water feature within this timber tract that begins from a spring fed pond off the property and runs from south to north through the eastern half of the land before exiting the property and entering Sebec Lake. The brook has both live water sections and ponded areas within the 514 acres creating a very diverse riparian habitat.
WILDLIFE & RECREATION – The diverse areas of forest on the property from its hardwood ridges to the ponded wetlands along Smith Brook are home to much of Maine flora and fauna. Because the land has plenty of food, cover and water, it is prime habitat for large game animals such as whitetail deer, moose & black bear. Areas of early successional forest are favored by our favorite upland birds; ruffed grouse and woodcock. Wading birds, ducks and geese all love the beaver pond near the northern boundary. The cold brook is potential rearing waters for wild brook trout.
This property and the surrounding area are blessed with an abundance of outdoor recreational possibilities. The land itself is rich with game animals for all types of hunting. The brook has fishing opportunities as do the nearby glacial formed lakes like Sebec and Schoodic. Both have cold water fisheries and size and depth necessary to satisfy all types of boaters. The property has direct access to both an ATV trail system and local snowmobile trails that access the Maine ITS trail system.
