Property Description:

FARMERS wanted, needed, desired and required per Agricultural Conservation Easement on this one of a kind farming property. There are 160.9 total acres with 113 forested and 48 acres of tillable fields. Farmland soils of statewide importance make up 36% of the land. Of that, 24% consists of Howland Gravelly loam on 0-15% slopes. Formerly a dairy farm, this property has a long standing 175 year history that will be continued “forever” with an Agricultural Conservation Easement held by Maine Farmland Trust. In addition to the Agricultural Conservation easement there is a recreational easement on approximately 4.3 miles of trails open to the public. There is a Farmstead Area (FSA) totaling 4.6 acres that currently contains a circa. 1850’s colonial farm house and a dairy barn. The Agricultural Easement allows for buildings to be constructed in the FSA for agricultural or housing needs as permitted by the easement. The spacious 30’x30’ with 16’x30’ ell historic farm home has 4 bedrooms and 1 bath, tin ceilings, wood floors, grand foyer, back staircase to full second floor, porch and full basement. It is in need of major repairs but appears to be salvageable. The 46’x38’ timber framed dairy barn has a massive second story with high ceilings. This property abuts other conserved lands and has views of Bangor to the west, Mt, Katahdin to the north and as far as the eye can see. Located just minutes from Bangor and on a paved town road, this a truly a one of a kind property in so many ways.
