If you are searching for LAND that will provide a homestead or recreational cabin location that has lots of acres but is not too difficult to access then you should be looking at this 40.3 +/- acre forested site in Houlton, Maine. The land consists of 40.3 +/- acres of mixed wood forest with western facing slopes from 400 to 550 +/- feet of elevation. Flooding will be no problem on this property. If you're thinking that this is steep slopes you would be correct, however the land has numerous plateaus that offer many level areas for building a home or cabin. With some clearing these spots will have incredible views of the sun setting over distant mountains to the west. NRCS soil mapping indicates that 70% of the site could be good for crops. The slopes create potential erosion problems which are the limiting factor. To grow here, terraced farming techniques could be rewarded with success. The trees are growing very well here. For the hunter small food plots are a no brainer, and this location is a pinch point of thick forest and a travel corridor between significant agricultural fields. A spring located flowing from the hillside on the southern end of the property could be dug out to create a small pond for a water source. Timber on the property is a mix of species with maple,birch, beech, spruce, fir, pine, hemlock and white cedar all present. This land could be timber harvested now for a quick ROI.
