Looking to escape from the world in a remote and safe location surrounded by conservation and native tribal lands? Here is your opportunity to own 367 +/- forested acres in the northern unorganized township of Williamsburg. No town roads, no noisy neighbors! This land is located nearly 2 miles off the town road on a private gravel and slate access road. Yes, you can throw up a gate at the start of this property. When you get to this land you notice a nice mix of both hardwood and softwood timber, including some impressive white pines. The rolling landscape is at 500 to 700 feet of elevation. There are already some nice views from the land, and with some tree clearing the views could be spectacular. The property has over a mile of interior roads and trails. The land is surrounded by landowners who conserve both land and wildlife. For an avid hunter this is a dream spot with little pressure from others. Recreation on this property includes hunting, fishing, snowmobiling with a trail through a portion of the property. The investment opportunity here is owning a diverse uneven aged forest with potential for timber harvesting now and into the future. Three water features on this property provide habitat for fish, birds, large and small game animals. Two branches of Whetstone Stream come together on this land and are teaming with wild Maine brook trout. This stream flows through Williamsburg and in Brownville it joins the Pleasant River. In the north west corner of the land a 1 1/12 acre beaver pond is attracting a number of moose and whitetail deer to its shores. Williamsburg is an unorganized township with a low tax rate and a population less than 100. The taxes for 2020 are only $402! This region of Piscataquis County is where you will find Katahdin Ironworks, Appalachian Trail, the Pleasant River drainage, Gulf Hagas and the Jo-Mary forest. If an off grid location in a recreational rich region with a timber investment opportunity you should call today to come see this property.
