This is an affordable opportunity to buy year-round accessible waterfront land in Maine. Come to Maxfield and see this 2.38± acre lot with nearly 400 feet of frontage on the Piscataquis River.
RIVER LOT – The lot is 2.38± acres that has been recently surveyed. A septic design plan has also been done. The survey shows 200± feet of frontage along the paved and year-round maintained River Road. The land is near level off of the road making it easy to put a driveway in. Grid tied electricity is roadside along with underground communication lines.
Tall white pines dominate the road side of the parcel with little under brush creating a near park like setting. The land then descends towards the river and the forest quickly transitions to hardwoods with beautiful red oaks lining the river bank.
There are 394± feet of pin-to-pin frontage along the river. At the river edge, two ledge outcrops extend into the channel about 1/3 of the river width. These create good wading and fishing as they provide current deflection and create fish holding back eddies. The river current is medium to fast moving in the main channel with quieter waters for swimming between the ledges.
PISCATAQUIS RIVER – Translated from the Wabanaki language as “at the river branch” or “branch of the river”, the Piscataquis is a 65 mile long tributary to the Penobscot River. The main branch of the Piscataquis forms up in Blanchard and then flows through the towns of Abbot, Guilford, Dover-Foxcroft, Milo and Medford before crossing the county line at Maxfield. The Piscataquis is a beautiful river for paddling with a few areas of class 2-3 whitewater but the majority is not technical. This is the perfect river to teach children to fish, paddle and enjoy the great Maine outdoors.
LOCATION - Maxfield is located in east-central Penobscot County 36 miles north of Bangor. Having a population of 89, or less than 5 people per square mile, you will find a lot of peace, quiet and privacy in Maxfield. The majority of the town is undeveloped forest, with most of the residences found along both shores of the river and along Bunker Hill Road.
