Forest City Township

No place in Maine inspires tails of wilderness adventure more than Forest City Township, home of past and current fishing outfitters such as Wheatons Lodge. What a great place for a seasonal home with some of the lowest property tax rates in the state.

If you are looking to leave the world's troubles and stress behind, Forest City Township is the place you are looking for. Here, there is little traffic, few people, sounds of bird songs, wind, and river - mostly peace and quiet and the occasional exchange of yarns with the local fishing guides.

 

The Home

The Forest City contemporary home was constructed in 2004 and was a collaboration of the dreams of the home owner and the talents of a professional architect. The home blends into the landscape with pleasing roof lines and natural cedar shake siding. The stone and log covered front entrance are your first clue to the refined rustic interior.

Inside the home the beautiful hardwood floors lead you room to room. The star of the show is the impressive living room. This large room has a stone fireplace from floor to ceiling accented by the strength and good looks of engineered wood composite beams. The kitchen and dining room have an open floor plan both with views of water and garden. The kitchen's engineered quartz counter tops are both beautiful and functional as are the natural hickory wood cabinets. The dining room is the access point onto a covered porch with multiple skylights. The porch enters directly onto the riverside deck.

Two first floor bedrooms share common access to a large bath via wood pocket doors. The first floor also has a half bath, formal entry and laundry room. From the laundry there is direct access to the two car attached garage.

The second floor of the home is reached via a rugged wooden staircase. The first room is a large open loft perfect for reading a good book or watching birds in the flower gardens below. From one end of the loft you access a private bedroom suite with ample walk in closet space and a private bath with a shower and whirlpool tub. The other side of the loft enters into a private den/office. A large semi-finished bonus room is beyond the office.

The lower level of the home takes advantage of an open front basement. Here is a huge family room perfect for home entertainment or exercise.

Great Gardens

The grounds of the Forest City home aid in preserving the natural feel of the property. The vegetable garden and trees nearly obscure the home from the street. A crushed rock driveway leads you into the property. Stone gardens are a perfect blend of wildflowers, blueberries, raspberries, trees and perennials that give you the feeling of being in a nature park.

The owners have preserved much of the natural landscape on the river side of the home yet have cleared and maintained enough for nice views of the water. About midway to the river from the home is a large stone and gravel fire pit. There is plenty of space for a gathering of friends to enjoy fire side tales of large fish lost.

 

Essay by David Snow

The dock rumbles noisily as I walk out onto it and out to the edge, but I have no fear for I know it will not fall. The air is warm and still, silhouetting the low wooded hills far away. There is no movement at all: not a stirring of the flag behind me nor the faint whine of a fishing boat's motor. A ripple breaks out in the middle of the glassy lake, sending undulations in all directions across the reflection of the sky; a fish has his dinner. The eerie cries of the loons begins back and forth across the lake and an owl calls out from the forested shores of the cove. Dragon flies hum to their resting places as bats come out to reap the bounty of oblivious flies. There is a clinking of silverware hitting the floor back up the hill and laughter. Lights across the lake twinkle out from the Canadian town. Forest City Maine - I love you.
