Farm ID 2428

    Farm ID 2428
Property Description:

Own a piece of agricultural history. 192 acres of pristine farmland owned by the Estes family since the 1820's. Offers 2 silos, a restorable 150 ft cattle feed barn, and a 2000+ sq/ft farmhouse. So much value and opportunity in the vast land acreage.

Improvements to the house in 2004 include vinyl siding, shingles, septic tank, oil furnace and BSHW system and electric range. New heat pump water heater in July 2015. The Federal style house is three stories but only the current living quarters has blown insulation, ie: bath, kitchen, dining room, living room and Master and small bedroom. All 26 windows are double panes. House uses a dug well but has 500 ft drilled well that needs to be accessed.

The (new) dairy barn was built in 1962.

The Havestore silo is 65 feet tall and 25 feet in diameter but no longer has an auger.

Taxed as three lots, the farm is all one property. Zoned Res/Agri. The land is beautiful and ready for an energetic personality.

With the exception of the hay-fields, which have been rented out year by year for corn and hay crops, the land has been without any introduction of chemical fertilization for 20 yrs, and is immediately available for a variety of livestock, such as beef, swine, goats, poultry and waterfowl. It has several man-made ponds for bait-fish operations and/or small fish hatcheries. The farm history includes apples, pears, and cherry trees, and huge vegetable gardens, giving great potential of a thriving farm stand.

5 minutes to Interstate 95, within 25 minutes of Bangor, and less than 20 minutes to Waterville. Minutes to Newport, the HUB of Maine where I95, Rt 7, & Rt 2 intersect. Augusta is less than 45 minutes away. The farm sets half a mile off RT 2, the major east-west highway across the state. Route 1 & points on the coast are 2+ hours as well as Day trips to Moosehead Lake, and Mt Katahdin.

The farmland is set within a 50 mile radius of multiple major farm supply, equipment retailers, and veterinarians.

There is immediate access to the I85 ATV/snowmobile trail that links to greater New England and the Canadian boarder. Man-made ponds for swimming, woodland for horseback and hiking trails. Black Bass fishing on the Sebasticook and less than 5 miles to trout fishing and recreation on Great Moose Lake. Less than 15 minutes to sport fishing and recreation on Sebasticook Lake in Newport. Kayaking, boating and canoeing on the Sebasticook. Lots of wildlife watching.

Priced at $300,000
