    Farm ID 1206
Property Description:

This farmland dates back to the early 1800s while the house is dated to the 1830s - 1840s. The current farm consists of two separate, surveyed parcels. The total acreage in the two parcels is just under 24.

The lower parcel containing the house, barn, a small garage, a spring, three “heritage” apple trees (in serious need of pruning), and a sloping meadow facing south totals about 9.5 acres. This lower parcel was purchased in 1990 from a retired, part-time farmer who'd had a few head of dairy cattle and a small scale, wood harvesting operation. There has been no agricultural activity on either parcel since 1990, but until this year (2019), the lower meadow had been mowed every year. The only water source for the house is a hand dug well/spring. The farm is located 3 miles north of Dexter just off route 7 and 1 mile from the Dover Foxcroft town line). The house, though quite sound, is currently not habitable. A detailed description of the condition of the house is available from the current owner.

The upper parcel contains a little over 14 acres, just under half of which is pasture and the remainder a professionally managed woodlot.

There have been two managed wood harvests with a third due within the next 2 years. The portion once used as pasture had been mowed every year until the summer of 2016.

Asking Price - $90,000
Asking Price for only the lower parcel is $60,000.

The upper parcel is not for sale separately.
