Located in the foothills of Western Maine in the town of Norway, this 341±-acre parcel of land is perfect for the buyer looking to get away from it all but still be in close proximity to modern services. The towns of Norway and South Paris are a short six-mile drive from the property, with Lewiston 20 miles to the east and Portland only 45 miles to the south. The land has approximately 1,050 feet of frontage on a paved public road, as well as over a mile of frontage along a historic discontinued road forming the eastern boundary of the property. Additional access to the property is from the northeastern corner. The land rises gradually to a small hilltop at the north end of the property (935-foot elevation), from which there is a sunny south/southwestern aspect; the perfect location to site a home. For the recreational enthusiast, regional access to Maine’s extensive Interconnected Trail System (ITS) is nearby via ITS 89. The property also offers nearly 3,000 feet of scenic, meandering frontage along the Crooked River, one of southern Maine’s premier trout and landlocked salmon rivers. The forest resource is well stocked with merchantable timber, primarily white pine and red oak. Total estimated stocking, based on a recent timber inventory (October 2020), is 1,738 MBF and 5,744 cords, or 27 total cords per acre. The property is not enrolled in Maine’s Tree Growth Taxation, with annual property taxes of $2,259 (2021).
