Where else can you find a private waterfront cottage with 20 acres of land and over 1,000 feet on a secluded Maine pond? This is the property you have been dreaming about. There is not a better place to spend your spring, summer and fall in Maine than at your own private waterfront retreat.
The gambrel style cottage is designed for a 2 car garage on the ground floor and living space on the second floor. The current owners are utilizing the garage space for an open kitchen and living room area with screens over the garage doors. With this seclusion, all you will hear are the squirrels, song birds and loons calling from the pond. A gray water system was just installed and a composting toilet is utilized on the main floor. Upstairs has a balcony overlooking the water.
The twenty plus acres are heavily wooded with mature pines and spruce. Scattered all over the property are wild Maine blueberries and other edible berries. The elevations on the land run from 380 to 550 feet above sea level. Located on Southwest Pond in Beddington Maine, access is over a very well-maintained gravel road. The shore frontage has a sandy gravel bottom and is excellent for swimming. The pond is 138 acres in size and the maximum depth is 34 feet, making this a great body of water for canoeing or kayaking. The fish species are mostly white perch with brook trout found in the tributaries.
Southwest Pond is located about 1 hour and 15 minutes east of Bangor Maine and the international airport, via Route 9, which is a well-maintained State highway. Boston is just under 5 hours to the south.
Beddington is the third smallest organized town in Maine and has a population of less than 100 people. Known for its wild blueberries and outdoor recreation, this is the place to disappear from the crowds. The Schoodic Peninsula is about an hour away, making a daytrip to this part of Acadia National Park an easy drive. Machias, the county seat is under an hour away and has some of the best seafood restaurants in Maine. There is a small store and restaurant in Beddington so you don’t have to drive far if you don’t want to. This is a rare find in Maine.
