Consider this 20.23 acre parcel with 1484’ of shorefront as your gateway to the mighty, Maine Bold Coast! With lots of acreage and vast views of Little Machias Bay, this property is ideal for homesteaders, naturalists, new home construction or a commercial venture. Located only 1.0 miles from the quintessential fishing village of Cutler where you can purchase lobster fresh off the boat during the lobster fishing season, this land has it all.
Originally envisioned and known as “The Little Machias Bay Subdivision,” there are 3 waterfront lots totaling 5.8 acres. These lots abut the shoreline with elevated views of the bay that gently slope to the shore. When the tide is out, the shore scape turns into an accessible sandy beach where you can meander or dig clams. As you watch the tide come and go to meet the Gulf of Maine, you develop an appreciation for this “intertidal zone.” In the summertime, Lupines of all colors share space with low bush blueberries that you can scoop up by the hand full. Across the road (Rt. 191) are 6 lots, totaling 14.46 acres, which consists of rolling fields, and a mix of mature trees and alders, allowing plenty of space for children and animals to roam and gardens to grow.
The NE border of the property runs 700’ along the Eastern Creek which flows out into the bay. This corner of the property is private and surrounded by the natural beauty of rural Maine. Mature spruce trees provide a protective backdrop to the northern boundary. History buffs will appreciate the view of the “Cutler towers” or the “antenna array,” located to the SW of the bay. The VLF Transmitter is the United States Navy’s very low frequency (VLF) shore radio station that provides one way communication to both submerged and on the surface submarines of the Navy’s Atlantic fleet.
Nature lovers will appreciate Little Machias Bay’s proximity to the popular Cutler Reserved Public Lands, located only 8.1 miles away. This conservation area comprises 12,334 acres overlooking the Bay of Fundy and includes 10 miles of hiking trails traversing peatlands, woodlands, and blueberry barrens. Your reward for hiking the moderately difficult trails are the stunning views of the dramatic, steep, jagged cliffs of the bold coast. This preserve has become a very popular hiking adventure. If you want to trek closer to home, the Western Head Preserve is located by Cutler Harbor. This 250 acre preserve has 3 miles of hiking trails through mossy forests and cobble stone beaches with dramatic views from bluffs along the trail.
Machias, Maine is only 30 minutes away which has all of the amenities you need such as grocery and pharmacy stores, restaurants, a hospital, medical and dental services, and an extension of the University of Maine. A community college and Veterans’ services are located only an hour away, and the Bangor International Airport approximately 2.5 hours. According to the town, Little Machias Bay is still an active subdivision so you can choose the lot you desire and sell the rest!
