Location is Everything Medford, Maine is an unknown town located in eastern Piscataquis County. It has a rural and remote feeling because of the sparse population and no major highways running through it, yet I-95 is less than 10 miles away. Getting here, no matter where you are coming from, is easy. Bangor International Airport is 40 miles away. Forget the bread and milk? The service towns of Milo and Lincoln Maine are not too far away.
A Quality Home The 1,600 +/- square foot home was built on an insulated concrete slab. Low maintenance was the seller’s priority when constructing this property. The exterior is maintenance free metal clad siding and roofing. No painting needs to be done here! The interior is laminate and tile flooring with walls and ceilings pine v-match eliminating nail pops and any need for painting. A floor plan that works for a weekend or year-round living includes an open concept kitchen, dining and living room areas divided by the wood cooking and heating stove with hearth. An enclosed porch, full bath plus 2 bedrooms round out the first floor. Upstairs 2 large bedrooms a utility room and full bath provide additional space for family and friends or storage.
Recreational Hunting & Fishing If you like to hunt and fish, this is a property located and built for it. Fishing the Piscataquis River is simply a pleasure. What will you catch? You never know. Maybe a smallmouth bass, a brook trout, landlocked salmon. The river has a small Atlantic salmon run and alewives are now ascending the river system from the Gulf of Maine. The river frontage along the property includes a large pool between two rapid sections. If you like to hunt like the seller of the property does, you will really enjoy the fruits of his labor. Several food plots have been established seeded with a whitetail institute perennial mix and apple trees have been planted, maintained are now producing fruit. On two of the plots comfortable elevated blinds are strategically placed for whitetail hunting.
Off-Grid Land and Site The property is about a mile off grid. Currently the home is powered by generator with some gas appliances and lighting. Our seller had future plans for solar and has cleared around the home location to allow for plenty of exposure to maximize that potential. Most of the property is a mixed wood forest and the owner has a forestry management plan in place which will be given to the new owners. Soils on site are a mixture of types suitable for crops, timber production and wildlife habitat. The property has a first-class driveway with materials that should last. Trails along the river and interconnecting the food plots aide in the enjoyment of the land.
Privacy is Insured The rural setting and the border of a large river would be enough to make this private. In addition, the private access road, plus an agreement with a neighbor to add gated access, insure you and your guests will unlikely see many people. Before considering building your vacation home or off grid year round property in Maine you owe it to yourself to see this property. You could not recreate this property for the price.
