The riverfront lot for sale in Soldiertown twp, Maine is located along the east branch of the Penobscot River. The year-round accessible waterfront property is located along Route 11 in the unorganized township of T2 R7 WELS, also known as Soldiertown Twp. The parcel is heavily wooded and slopes gently down from the road to the river. There is approximately 20-25 feet of elevation change from the road side to the river bank. The parcel has mixed wood on it with some very large pine saw logs spaced throughout the parcel. The parcel has 300+- feet of frontage on the east branch of the Penobscot and 268+- feet along the road. Utility power is roadside, making this parcel an ideal location to build your riverfront home.
The area around the property is very sparsely populated. The majority of the homes in Soldiertown Twp are in an area called Hay Brook Village. This is one of northern Penobscot’s unorganized towns. There is no local municipal government so the property taxes in the area are very low in comparison to the neighboring communities of Medway and East Millinocket, Maine. The east branch of the Penobscot River is the most significant natural feature of the area. The river flows 48 miles from Grand Lake Mattagamon to Medway, Maine where it joins the west branch and forms the Penobscot River. The area is comprised of largely undeveloped tracts of industrial timberland. The only improved section of road is the short section of Route 11 which crosses the township near Hay Brook. The property is near Baxter State Park and Katahdin Woods & Waters National monument.
Outdoor recreational pursuits of all kinds can be had from the property. With direct access to the east branch of the Penobscot River boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing for bass, trout and salmon are all enjoyed. The woods around the property are large tracts of commercial timberlands that are open to the public for recreational pursuits, including large game hunting, deer hunting and duck hunting.
Just recently a philanthropist purchased a few thousand acres of land a short distance from the property and opened Penobscot River Trails.
