The Christmas Tree Farm Country Home Site in Cyr Plantation, Maine has the potential to be a very private, yet accessible location for a residential home or recreational cabin. The 80 +- acres of well drained farm soils were planted with fir trees as a crop about 20 years ago, and the trees that remain are going to be a harvestable crop for stud wood or pulp in another 20 +- years. The long rows of evenly planted trees would provide privacy should you chose to locate your home away from the road nestled amongst tall fir trees.
The property is readily accessible from Route 1, yet private. The road onto the property, is a town-maintained road during the summer months. This is an ideal off-grid, private home site. From the height of the property the ability to obtain panoramic views of the St. John Valley can be had as well as perfect solar orientation for that off-grid home. The farm roads through the fir plantation would provide hiking, biking and walking opportunities where sightings of grouse, deer and moose will be common place. This is an excellent opportunity to obtain an accessible, private, well wooded parcel with farm class soils that has scenic views, privacy and abundant wildlife at a great price. Call today to request a personal viewing of the Christmas Tree Farm Home Site.
There is a small unnamed tributary to the St. John River that runs through a portion of the property. The St. John River, Long Lake, numerous trout streams can all be accessed from the property just minutes away. There is a small portion of the acreage that has wet soils, and the spring water in that area may allow construction of your own farm pond.
The 80+- acres of Christmas Tree Farm Country Home Site have farm class soils that grow everything well, including the softwood timber that is well stocked throughout the acreage. With work, the old farm fields could be reclaimed by harvesting the fir trees and removing the stumps. The gently rolling terrain of the parcel has opportunities for home sites, food plots and hiking trails. There may be enough cleared area to have a pasture for a horse or two, and the trails through the fir forest would provide pleasant riding for you and your horse.
