Located in the small town of Saint Francis, Maine is a well-maintained ranch style, log home on 13.3 acres of riverfront land. The 2-bedroom 2 ½ bath home of nearly 3300 square feet, has a two-car attached and heated garage as well as two covered porches. The home was originally built in 1996 and is in good condition. There is a full, partially finished daylight basement that opens out to the spring fed, private ponds in the back of the home. The log home offers one level living and has a metal roof as well as a solarium that is accessed from the primary bedroom. The walkout basement has a billiard room, utilities room, a half bath and over 1500 square feet of possibilities. A long-paved driveway leads down from the public access road to the private, river front property. The log home has a drilled well, a private septic system and is heated by a multi zone hot water baseboard system.
The home is situated on an expansive river front lot of over 13.3 acres and has over 1100 feet of frontage on the Saint John River. In addition to the river views from the front of the home, there are beautiful views of the tree lined private trout ponds from the back of the home. There are two connected, spring fed private ponds. The riverfront oasis offers a tremendous amount of value for the log home buyer, because in addition to the main home built in 1996, there are two other log cabins located on the large, private river front property.
There is a guest log home of approximately 1100 square feet that has 1 bedroom on the first floor and a sleeping loft. There is an attached 2 car garage with direct entry into the home. A kitchen, laundry room, full bath and family room with a field stone fireplace round out the other features of the guest house. It also has its own well and septic system, and has a brand new forced hot air furnace as well as an oil fired hot water tank that have never been used. This home will need quite a bit of work to restore it, as it was built prior to 1970 and is showing its age. Situated right on the bank overlooking the river, the views from the guest log home are incredible.
Finally, tucked away from the main house and guest house is a rustic log cabin of approximately 250 square feet. This log cabin has a wood stove, direct vent propane heater and is wired for electricity. It does not have plumbing or a kitchen but would make a great bunkhouse for overflow guests to your river front home. This private, hideaway cabin is tucked away in a grove of evergreens along the river’s edge.
The property is located in the Saint John Valley region, in the town of Saint Francis and very near to the neighboring community of Allagash. The town of Saint Francis has a population of approximately 480 residents and Allagash has about 250 residents. Both communities have access to lots of recreational water. Nearby there is access to the Saint Francis River, the Allagash River, as well as the Little and Big Black Rivers. Approximately 3 miles from the home are the Pelletier Lakes. These lakes are filled with brook trout and are just a few minutes from the property. This area is visited by hundreds if not thousands of anglers each year in pursuit of hungry brook trout.
Access to Maine’s North Maine Woods area is also just minutes from the property. The Saint Francis check point is within a mile of the home. The North Maine Woods is a managed area of 3.2 million acres of privately held timberland that is managed for recreation. Visitors to this area can hunt, fish, hike, boat and explore the great outdoors in this vast region. In this area there are way more moose than people.
The local ATV and ITS trails can also be directly accessed from the property. If you enjoy 4-seasons and love outdoor recreation, then this is an opportunity for you to purchase a great home in a rural area of unparalleled beauty. Come see the Saint John Valley.
