54 Carver Road, Milo, Maine, 04463
Looking for that perfect get-away? Tired of paying utility bills? Want your closest neighbor to be only reachable by phone? This is the place for you! This completely off-grid post and beam home is accessible year-round by an abandoned town road. What does that mean??? It means you own to the middle of the road and that you ARE the end of the road. The road once continued beyond this home, but that portion has been discontinued.
The home sits on a 72-acre parcel of land that has everything you’re looking for and more. There is some forested land, some bog, some field, and some great views. The home sits on the highest part of the lot and has an interior road/path that gains access to a good portion of the 72 acres. The majority of the lot is HRB (Howland Monarda) which has a 0 to 8 percent slope and is very stony. This is soil that lends itself best to range or pasture, woodlands, and wildlife habitat. So, if you are a hunter, nature lover or conservationist, - this is your kind of lot. The wood that is standing can easily sustain a myriad of wildlife and the thinning of the forest will supply you with firewood for a lifetime.
The home itself is set up with a full solar system that can power the entire home including the well pump. There is also an alternative propane generator for when the solar is not fully charged or for additional power when needed.
Built in 2006, this home has 3 bedrooms, full bath, kitchen/dining room combination and a living room with a woodstove. The home is mostly finished but does need some trim work for it to be complete. The storage shed, garden shed, and woodshed round out the property with plenty of outdoor storage to match the interior storage of the full concrete basement. There is even a place to put an in-line propane water heater in the basement. With a drilled well and full septic you will soon forget that you are off-grid and living utility bill free!!

There are ATV and snowmobile trails throughout the area and some great hiking trails nearby in KI (Katahdin Ironworks Twp) and the Jo-Mary Regions. Both Mt.
