Property Description

Here is an opportunity to purchase a Maine kingdom property. The land consists of 1,100 +/- acres of investment grade timberland, nearly two miles of water frontage on Lower Middle Branch Pond, two cabins, plus thousands of feet of river frontage on the Middle Branch of the Union River.

Land - Forest - Water

The terrain of Middle Branch Forest is extremely varied with elevations from 330 to over 700 feet. The 710-foot southwestern spur of Middle Branch Ridge is in the northeast corner of the property. It forms an impressive backdrop to the views from the pond. The frontage along the pond also varies from steep shorelines, level cottage areas, and scenic marshy shores often frequented by moose. The forestland is a nice mix of hardwoods along the tops and sides of the ridges with softwoods such as white pine and spruce in the transition and lower lying areas. The land has been managed over the past 20+ years by professional foresters. It is well stocked with both merchantable and growing stock sized trees. The property is accessed over several interior private roads including Long Pond Road which meanders through the western side of the parcel.

Recreational Opportunities

If outdoor recreation is in your blood, this is the place for you. The pond is remote and undeveloped with the exception of the two cabins on the property and a another on the land to the north. The fishing here is reported as perch with occasional brook trout that migrate down from Upper Middle Branch Pond and up from the Union River. Paddling here is pure solitude. Hunting in the area is known to be excellent for Maine black bear, large whitetail deer, upland birds and waterfowl. The land can provide access to local snowmobile and ATV trail systems maintained by local clubs.
