Welcome to the North Chester Orchard, a working apple orchard, Christmas Tree farm, and acres of pumpkin patch, owned and operated by the same owners since its inception in 1989.  This setting on 70+- groomed acres, with a meticulously maintained historic New England Farmhouse, is something you would see in a Hallmark movie.  The agricultural land and woodlands of this property are the perfect example of good stewardship and its obvious the labor of love that has gone into the property over the last 33 years.  Once you see this property, you will understand why people travel from all over this part of Maine to pick their own apples, pick a pumpkin and return weeks later for a beautiful Christmas Tree. The farmhouse comes with its own history book written by Mable Whitney Jordan who grew up at the farm in the 1930’s with such fond memories of her experiences, she wrote a book about it.  The home has three bedrooms, one- and one-half baths and about 1650 square feet of finished living space.  When you enter the home, you come into the kitchen area that is a bright open space with original tin ceilings, a pantry, heat pump and views of the south orchard.  The hardwood maple floors provide a warmth to this part of the home and nice contrast to the color of the kitchen cabinetry.  Off the kitchen, at the north end of the house is a family room with small wood stove and half bath.  The wood stove is perfect for warming up to after working in the orchard or after the family has enjoyed a day of sliding down one of the hills in the orchard.  Off the other side of the kitchen is a formal dining room with hardwood flooring.  From here you have access to the home office and living room with seasonal views of the Penobscot River. Continuing upstairs you will find a nice sized storage closet in the hallway.  Two bedrooms are on this south end of the house and they both have closets.  The front bedroom here has views of the Penobscot River.  A full bathroom off the hallway separates the front bedrooms on the south end of the house from the master bedroom on the north end of the house.  The master has great views of the orchard.  A large walk-in attic could easily be finished into a walk in closet. The home has a full basement, modern hot water baseboard heating system, updated electrical system with generator hook up, thermal windows, modern septic system and drilled well. Outside this home is a covered porch that faces southwest to enjoy the afternoon sun and the perennial flower gardens with an assortment of hydrangea, daffodils, lilies, and azalea.   There is a large vegetable garden with raspberry bushes and blueberry bushes that finish the landscape around the yard. The 36 x 40 apple house has a retail sales area, apple washing and packing area and 725+- square foot walk in cooler with 10-foot ceilings.  A detached three car garage with heated workshop and walk up attic for storage space holds all of the included equipment needed to operate the farm.  Both outbuildings have car ports for additional space to store equipment out of the weather. The orchard consists of approximately 1,250 trees with over 12 varieties of apples.  The varieties have been carefully selected for their hardiness to Maine and to provide a harvest throughout different times of the fall season.  Approximately 22 acres are fenced in to protect the orchard and pumpkin patch.  There is a 40 x 80 irrigation pond that provides water as needed to the trees.  The pond is fed by a natural wetland of about 6 acres and has never run dry.  The pond is a perfect place for that winter bonfire and ice skating. The Christmas trees are balsam fir with about 3,300 trees in inventory ranging from one to twelve years of age.  Customers get to choose and cut their own tree which provides a great family outing.  There is a small cabin with porch and woodstove used to greet customers, provide them a hand saw and get them checked out to take home the family tree. Part of the agricultural land is used to grow pumpkins.  When people come to the farm to pick their own apples, they usually leave with a pumpkin as well.  The owners sell around 2,000 pumpkins each season but there is plenty of room to carve out more business. The remainder of the land is a 36+- acre woodlot that has been carefully managed to provide a sustainable supply of firewood for the farm and a home to wildlife.  You will frequently see deer, grouse, wild turkey, and many species of birds as well as ducks in the wetland area.  If you have a portable sawmill, you will find ample timber to build some rental cabins for additional income.  Trails leading throughout the forest provide opportunity for hiking throughout the year and cross-country skiing in the winter. Chester Maine has a population of around 550 people and is bounded by the Penobscot River.  The service town is Lincoln, located about 15 minutes to the south has a hospital, restaurants, Wal-Mart, grocery stores and most services.  The city of Bangor and the international airport is just under an hour to the south.  Traveling from Boston will take you about four and a half hours. If you are looking to leave a legacy for your family, look no further, you have found it here at the North Chester Orchard.  A beautiful place to live, a farm to grow food for you and the community, and a well-established supplemental income opportunity.

Perched on a knoll above the shores of the Pleasant Bay in Addison is a bed and breakfast that speaks the language of Downeast Maine. It offers up an unhurried pace, simple unfettered charm, and a friendly relaxed ambience that has kept travelers coming back to this beautiful property at 386 West Side Road for over 20 years! Spread out over 110+/- acres with 10,000+/- feet of waterfront, this coastal escape is extraordinary from top to bottom. From the outside, the home’s dove-grey shingles show their familiarity with salt and time, the perennial, herb, and vegetable gardens smile with billowy charm, and the manicured lawns paint a ‘pastoral landscape meets coastal splendor’ that you’d expect an Andrew Wyeth or Edward Hopper to paint. Inside the house, you’ll find the kinds of elements you might expect from a coastal farmhouse bed and breakfast: face-nailed wide pine floorboards, shiplap on walls, brick fireplace hearths, and a monochromatic color palette with the occasional blue and green accents. As it operates now, this established bed and breakfast features four sunny guestrooms that each have either a shared or private bath. From each room, there are spectacular views of the water. The common areas include a grand room for gathering and dining, a library with a cozy reading nook, and a large deck and screen porch where guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast surrounded by the beauty of nature. There is an owner’s master bedroom that sits back from all the guest quarters and creates a convenient split bedroom house plan. Over the last quarter-century, the B&B has drawn guests from across the world looking for that “true Maine experience”. While many guests travel overland by car to get to the B&B, the property’s deep-water yacht mooring makes it possible for others to make their way to the property overwater by boat! Here, you wake up when the sun rises (and that is early since Washington County is the first in the country to see the sunrise!) and you go to sleep when the sun sets. You almost feel controlled by the rhythms of nature as you walk along the 3½ miles of well-maintained trails on the property, huddle over jigsaw puzzles on the sun-soaked deck and dawdle down by the water’s edge. When you travel off the property, you’ll feel that 3 same draws to Maine’s unique and rugged coastline as you find yourself centered between two coastal splendors - Acadia National Park and Campobello Island. Outside of the B&B, this property offers up multiple other income opportunities. The area surrounding the B&B is known for destination weddings and events. While the B&B is set up to support this type of business, current owners have primarily focused their efforts on the lodging business which leaves clear opportunity for the incoming owners. A nominal increase in marketing would grow the wedding and events business quickly. This property also currently serves as a working llama/horse farm, so it is zoned for livestock, has plenty of fenced in pasture, two good-sized freshwater ponds, and substantial shelters and barns that provide adequate protection making it a viable agriculture investment. The brawny post and beam barn on the property even used to house one of the largest red deer/elk farming operations in Maine! Additionally, there are two double garages on the property, one of which is free-standing and has an in-law suite above it, that could be used as a long-term residential rental or a short-term vacation rental. Whether this home’s buyers continue to run it as a B&B, live in it as a private residence, or explore one of its many other viable income opportunities, the property will retain the quality that makes it so special: an unmatched union of coastline and inland wonder. To blend in with the local vernacular, in color and form, is to live here.

Land for Sale

MLS Number 1517692

  • Land
  • Property SubType Land
  • Acreage 72

Want an off grid get away? This 72-acre lot in LaGrange fronts on the Sagerson road, which is a seasonal gravel road, that’s located about 1 mile off the town-maintained Medford Road.  This parcel of land is in the Tree Growth program saving you property taxes, but it has a 1-acre building site excluded from the program. The timber on the property consists of softwood and hardwood stands with patches of mixed growth. The land is gently rolling with elevations between 310 and 350 feet above sea level. An interesting aspect of the land is the shape of the lot, which is almost the perfect shape of a baseball diamond. There’s no field of dreams here, but if you’re looking for privacy, this could very well be your dream property. The soils are predominantly Chesuncook Telos and Chesuncook Elliottsville which are stony soils but may allow some pasture if you are looking for an off-grid homestead. Enjoy some spring trout fishing at Cold Stream which is only a few minutes walk from the property. With ATV access close by it’s a great spot of land to build an off-grid camp, or even if you really want privacy, an off-grid home. If you’re not into ATVing, that same ATV access is also used for hiking, mountain biking, and snowmobiling. If you enjoy canoeing or kayaking, the Piscataquis river is just a few miles down the road. Despite being remote and private, about 15 minutes away is the town of Milo. Milo has a Dunkin Donuts, Dollar store, grocery store, Walgreens and a House of Pizza. So, you’ll still be close to your essentials while being able to relax away from it all. But, if you do choose to get back into it, the city of Bangor is about 40 minutes away with shopping, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The town of LaGrange is about a 4-hour drive from Boston. The town was established in 1832 and today has a population of under 1,000 people. Overall if you’re looking for an off-grid property with access to recreation, groceries, and a close distance to some city life, this 72-acre lot is for you.
