Description

Facing due south, this off-grid salt water farm occupies 207.6 acres at the tip of the Point of Main peninsula with 3,798feet of deep water frontage. This is one of the few remaining untouched coastal gems of Downeast Maine. Crowned by extensive cobblestone and sandbeaches, the land is comprised of open pastures, wild blueberries, forest and heaths. Spruce and Fir trees adorn dramatic cliff tops and give way towoodland paths where one may walk guided always by the sound of ocean surf beyond the trees and mosses. This pristine acreage is held in easement bythe Maine Farmland Trust to prevent development and subdivision (with the exception of the construction of one more primary residence). This salt waterfarm has been used for many years to pasture cattle and later sheep. This farmland could be certified organic should one choose to do so as no chemicalapplication has been carried out on the property for more than a decade. The generations-old family home remains as the original builders intended; atall, striking farmhouse, timbers unbowed, lines straight and true, a place of real peace, warmth and respite. The windows frame each sunrise and capturethe colors of every sunset. Starlight is unimpeded here. On the Southeast horizon, the Libby Island Lighthouse illuminates her Atlantic seaways. The beautyand tranquility of this property is unsurpassed, and the history is rich. Preservation of this unique prize was, however, hard fought. A moving synopsisdetailing this struggle is provided by the sellers within the property’s informational package. Imagine the continuance of this stewardship as a generationalfamily retreat or a corporate retreat, a thriving agri-forestry operation, a working livestock farm, or a simple respite for the soul. The current farmhouse isperfect for your retreat, your temporary abode while building your dream home, or your property manager’s quarters.
