Are you familiar with real estate near Baxter State Park, Mount Katahdin and southern Aroostook County? If you are, you know that this is one of the most scenic places in Maine with mountains, expansive forest and open land with quality agricultural soil. This 221 +/- acres of land for sale, located in Benedicta and T2 R6 WELS, is the perfect place to homestead, recreate and enjoy the lifestyle of Maine.

LAND  Improvements-Views-Timber-Soils

This land consists of 221 +/- acres of mixed timberland with old fields mixed throughout the acreage. This unique parcel has some amazing views of Mount Katahdin and the connected Appalachian Mountain Range. From your new home or cabin built on the west facing hillside, you will enjoy evenings watching the sun recede behind these prominent mountains.

An already improved site along the road has a well, septic, driveway and gravel pad. The current owner is leasing this spot as a mobile home site and it is located in the southeast corner of the land. About 3 ½ acres is cleared to lawn, field and access road at this location.

From the property’s frontage on Benedicta Road, the elevation is about 580 FASL and the topography is level for about 250 feet. From here the elevation changes quickly and opens up the mountain views. An interior road follows the southern boundary next to the home site then turns into the interior of the land. A small farm pond is located 900 feet from the current home site and could be a water source for farm animals or stocked for fishing.

Per NRCS soil mapping, the soils on the property vary in capability from limited, moderate and intensive agricultural use to soil types best used for forestry and wildlife. The forest on the land ranges from a mix of hardwood on the higher elevations to mixed and softwood along the slopes and lower elevations.

 LOCATION Big Woods-Conservation Lands-Farms

Southern Aroostook County and Northern Penobscot County are very rural areas of Maine. The topography is dominated by a seemingly endless forest leading off to the horizon. Carved out of these woods are some beautiful farms growing potatoes, broccoli, corn and more. You need to take a drive though the area when the potato blossoms are peaking in the rolling fields contrasted by the Appalachian Mountains rising up in the background. Beautiful!

Wildlife in the area is highlighted by the majestic Maine moose, large whitetail deer, black bears, ruffed grouse and wild turkeys. A hunter or photographer can make a good living here. The region is blessed with hundreds of rivers, lakes, and wild brook trout ponds. Baxter State Park is nearby and has hundreds of miles of trails and many mountain peaks to explore. Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument and the International Appalachian Trail are also located in this part of Maine.

Getting to the property is easy, with it being located just 2.5 miles from the Benedicta exit of I95. Necessity shopping is located 4.5 miles away in the small town of Sherman. More stores and services will be found in Houlton, 42 miles north, and Lincoln, 40 miles south. Bangor International Airport is located just 79 miles away, most of which is over I95.
