Escape to your off-grid retreat in the Maine woods with this picturesque 25-acre timberland property at 95 Branch Road in Winn. Nestled in a heavily wooded area of well-drained soils, this land is the perfect location for building your new cabin. LOCATION Winn is a small town in northeastern Penobscot County with a population of about 400. The land is located just 2 ½ miles from a town-maintained road, this property offers a balance of seclusion and accessibility. Lincoln is only 18 miles or 25 minutes away, while Bangor is 66 miles or 1 hour 15 minutes, convenient for getting supplies or a day trip. Portland is just under 3 hours away, and Boston is a 4-hour 55 minutes’ drive, making for a quick escape from the city to the peace and quiet of the woods. OFF GRID LAND The land features 25.2 acres with registered survey. The NRCS reports a mix of 80% Plaisted loam and 20% Howland loam soils which are terrific for growing trees and when cleared of trees and rocks could be planted to crops. The elevations range from 370 to 430 FASL, providing stunning forest views and many potential building sites. With over 1,500 feet of road frontage, this corner lot would be easy to divide and sell a portion to fund your cabin construction. What makes this land stand out from most on the market today is the heavy tree canopy. No harvesting has been done for decades on this property. You can walk through the well-spaced hardwood forest without a lot of underbrush. The land is about 80 percent hardwoods and is covered with yellow and white birches, maple, American beech, and poplar with a scattering of spruce, fir, and hemlock around the edges of the lot. RECREATION Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity to the Dwinal Pond Wildlife Management area, Penobscot River, and Mattawamkeag River, offering ample opportunities for trail riding, hunting, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. The Mt Jefferson Ski Area is only 8 miles away, making it convenient for winter sports enthusiasts. ATV and snowmobile trails are easily accessible for year-round enjoyment of the great outdoors.
