Property in Linneus. $34.5k. Twenty-six acres of mature, mixed, hardwood and softwood with a nice stream (South Branch Meduxnekaeg River) cutting across the lot. The water is ice-cold and delicious! The fishing is good, the hunting is very good. Moose, deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, etc., abound. Five hundred feet of road frontage (Town Line Road South). Lot #42. Metal stakes in ground (at corners). Power pole about five hundred feet down the road. Ideal for an off-grid cabin/cottage- there is plenty of mature cedar with which to build your dream home with your own timber. If you harvest the timber here, at today's prices, you will likely recoup your purchase price. And if you bring some Katahdin sheep, they will graze and browse the lush forest. Or, set down your RV. Secluded and private, with packed gravel/dirt road. Plowed by town up to about five hundred feet from the property, then plowed by others living down the road. Cellular/GPS service is fine. /// Owner financing available and there is a possibility for bartering partial payment. (E.g., I need a heavy-duty dual axle 32'/40'/48' trailer, steel I-beams/C-channel). Taxes $300/year. If you are a vet, please mention that verifiable fact to me if you need owner financing. Note: I cannot offer owner financing to a buyer who intends on cutting the property as a timber harvest. Also, if you have children, there is a school not too far away, and I have seen a school bus in the area. But please check for that information on your own. Note: there is a very good grocery store about ten minutes away that also has the best pizza in the county! In the summer, there is an ice-cream place, also about ten minutes away, where you can get great ice-cream at silly low prices. You have a gas station about fifteen minutes away. And it is about thirty minutes to the town of Houlton, where you should be able to obtain all of your shopping needs, including building supplies. I was going to build my retirementcabin on this property, but my sheep farm is keeping me too busy, and the years sort of got by me. By the way, do you think you cannot raise sheep in a forest? Think again. Katahdin sheep are hair sheep -no wool to shear- and they were bred for browsing Maine's forests. Feel free to ask me about providing you a seed flock of pure-bred Katahdins. Katahdin meat is arguably the tastiest, most succulent lamb you can find on the market. Finally, you can find this property on Google Earth. Enter 'Lot 42, Linneus, Maine' and look for the river meandering like a backward '3'. It is easily spotted. The lot is immediately above it. The river cuts across the property about 2/3 of the way in from the road.
