Map 001, Book 007, Lot 001. Located in Princeton, Maine, nestled along the Canadian border and fabled Route 1, is an untouched, unrestricted 121.5-acre piece of property that is looking for a new owner! This land has many possible uses for a hunter/fisher, or a homesteader.
The town of Princeton, despite being a small rural community, is linked to a vast interconnected system of pristine streams and lakes, the St. Croix River, and, ultimately, to the Atlantic Ocean. Princeton offers regionally, if not nationally, renowned fishing and hunting, earning it the name of “A Sportsman’s Paradise”. And this acreage is no stranger to that moniker. With over 3,000’ of frontage on Lewy’s Brook (a gorgeous brook trout piscary that flows into Pocomoonshine Lake which is one of Maine’s finest fisheries for both smallmouth and large bass), this piece of property is home to a slice of Maine’s storied wild brook trout stronghold. If you are an angler, it does not get much better than having access to brookies right in your own backyard!
Outside of fishing, this piece of land is also a hunting mecca for everything from big game animals such as moose, deer, bear, and bobcat, to small game birds and animals such as grouse, woodcock, and rabbit. This property’s inland wetlands provide plenty of water for wildlife, the low, flat lay of this land makes for good food plot construction, and the tall trees and thick brush are exactly right for providing shelter for animals. With entry to the property off a road on its southern corner, no easements, and lots of possibilities for ATV/UTV/equestrian trails, access to the land is plentiful and convenient.
The most common forest-type groups on this property are conifers and pines. This land has not been logged in recent years, so there is potential for timber harvesting now and well into the future. While this land is not currently enrolled in any of Maine’s current use tax programs (so there is no limitation to what you can do with it), these programs could certainly be explored if a reduction in property tax is appealing.
Situated in an off-the-grid location, this plot offers up supreme privacy, quietude, and all the necessities that any homesteader would long for. With a dependable year-round water source, an abundance of food options, plenty of natural building materials, low taxes, and no zoning/building/tree growth program restrictions, this land is more than sustainable for an off-grid, rural homestead.
Even though Princeton is a small, rural town, there are several retail and community services available to fulfill the daily needs of residents. Just north of this property is the Princeton Municipal Airport, a town-owned public-use airport, and the Indian Township Reservation, home to the Passamaquoddy Tribe (the easternmost indigenous Native American tribe in the United States!). You can’t beat this property’s location, makeup, or potential.
