***SOLD***

This beautiful tract is located in the Western Mountains of Maine half way between Jackman and West Forks. The area is known for its remote wilderness setting and its many recreational opportunities.

At 1910 feet above sea level, this Fly Fishing only Trout Pond is truly a High Country gem. There is 1605 feet of water frontage and 18.6 Acres of unencumbered land. In 1996 a Forester's Cabin was built to replace a bunkhouse that had been hauled over the ice in 1932. The new structure is self contained and can be used on a year-round basis. It has electricity and modern plumbing. The original name "MOOSE RUN CAMP" is still used today.

The land is accessed by a gravel road which is a deeded right of way from Rt. 201, only 5 miles away. The current owner has managed the land for Timber production over the past 23 years. Much of the land is well wooded and can provide, at the pleasure of the new owner, immediate income. These Fifty six Timberland acres have been placed in permanent conservation which specifically allows Forest Land management and timber harvesting under current Maine law.

This idyllic setting offers privacy, crisp mountain air and the banter of Loons at daybreak. There are only a few tracts available for private ownership in the Appalachian Range that exhibit such a unique wilderness backdrop.

Devil’s Bog Pond Timberland Investment

SOLD

TIMBERLAND

Here is a unique opportunity to own a timberland investment AND MORE! The stand is composed primarily of northern hardwoods and aspen with a lesser mixture of spruce, fir and pine. The timber on this property has been managed for both the near and long-term. Much of the land can be harvested immediately but would be a more valuable asset if left to grow for future income. There are some areas that have not been harvested for some time and can provide immediate cash income.

A well-built infrastructure is in place for a future harvest. An access road from the Old Hilton Road has been constructed and maintained for the past few years. This summer road is ½ mile long and has a fine gravel surface. About 1 mile of elevated trail has also been constructed to facilitate access to the property. There are two main landing areas that are currently serving as field/wildlife food plots.

THE AREA

The Town of Cornville is a small farming community just north of the City of Skowhegan; the shiretown for Somerset County. The property is located a scant 1.5 miles from the city line. Nearby there is a hospital, golf course, major retail stores, restaurants, etc. The main access to the area is Route 150. I95 is approximately a 30 minute drive.

THE PROPERTY

The property is accessed by the Old Hilton Hill Road with power and phone. There is a small stream that winds its way through the parcel. Nearly 5 acres of field have been reclaimed or constructed and more can be worked to provide quality wildlife habitat or farmland. The northern portion of the property contains Devil's Bog Pond; a classic peat bog and companion pond. A boggy bridge has been constructed to water's edge for ease of access.

WILDLIFE

Access to the property is controlled and there are no easements on the land; this allows for exclusive use of the property. The land supports thriving populations of whitetail deer, wild turkey and ruffed grouse which all can be managed for the long term. In Fall, geese and ducks use Devil's Bog Pond as a staging area. It is not unusual to see hundreds of waterfowl resting after gorging themselves in the nearby grain fields.

HOMESTEAD

The relatively flat terrain and evidence of old stone walls hint at the potential for this property to grow crops. Choice areas can be cleared for agriculture and the remaining sections can be managed for timber and/or wildlife habitat. The access road is gated for privacy. Power and phone can be brought to a prime building site on a knoll at the edge of the field overlooking Devil's Bog Pond in the distance. This would truly be a secretive retreat for the executive homesteader.

SEEING IS BELIEVING!

This gorgeous log-sided cabin is located in Lakeville home of Maine's fabled Downeast Lakes Region. The 11 acre parcel boasts over 1100' of deepwater frontage on Upper Sysladobsis Lake; known for its excellent Salmon and Brook Trout fishery. The Town of Lakeville has one of the lowest tax rates in the State.

THE COTTAGE

This 26' X 40' marvel of workmanship by the owner is tastefully situated on a high knoll on a prominent point with sunset views. There are two bedrooms, loft, full bathroom and plenty of closet space. The focal point of this "cottage by the lake" is a beautiful granite fireplace with a stone moose centerpiece. A generous kitchen/dining/living room area completes the layout.

The interior is finished off in a traditional post and beam style and knotty pine. A unique feature of this style is the rope molding and a timber framed loft made with home grown cedar from the property itself. There are wood floors throughout.

The cottage is self contained. A gasoline generator powers the lights and water pressure. Propane runs the refrigerator, back-up heating system and hot water system. Coupled with the fireplace is a wood stove. The building is fully insulated including the floors and can be used year round.

The open porch affords western views of the lake and the verdant shoreline. The exterior is log-sided and the lakeside entrance is in a timber frame style made from on-site trees. Two sheds complete the picture.

THE SITE

The unique feature of the land is its rugged, rocky beauty. The buildings have been carefully situated to compliment the landscape. Rock cribbing has been used to stabilize the site and provide a distinctive visual effect. One trail has been constructed to make for easy access to the water’s edge. Another takes advantage of a natural walkway from the cottage to the dock with a deep water drop-off.

THE AREA

This well-known chain of lakes straddles three counties in Maine; Hancock, Penobscot and Washington. Upper Sysladobsis Lake is part of this giant lake system of over 40,000 acres all connected by streams and thoroughfares including such noteworthy lakes as West Grand, Sysladobsis, Big, Scraggly and Junior. These waters harbor a world-renown Land-Locked Salmon fishery. Brook Trout, Small-Mouth Bass and regional favorite Whitefish can also be caught in this lake system.

Not to be out done by the fabulous boating and fishing, the Lincoln-Lee-Springfield-Lakeville area is snowmobile and ATV friendly. You can literally strike out from the cottage and ride for hundreds of miles on groomed and marked trails.
