The home has been updated over the years with windows, doors, flooring, wiring and other improvements. It still needs some cosmetic improvements but the structure of the home appears sound. It sets on a granite block foundation. An attached 1 car garage provides vehicle storage.
The two barns are located on Old County Road about 2000 feet from the home. One barn is good for animal shelter with the second steel building perfect for tractor and equipment storage.
The land has over 4,000 of road frontage combined on Kennebec Road and the Old County Road providing excellent access to the entire parcel. This parcel is approximately 60 acres of field and pasture with the balance of the tract in timberland. Elevations of the site range from 500 to 780 feet above sea level. Most of the soils here are suitable for grazing lands with some limited areas good for farming. The property could be utilized for a small to midsized organic farm.
The land is currently being used for pasturing cattle with a lot of fence already in place. A couple of farm ponds provide a source of water along with a second well located near the two barns.
There can be more land available up to 800 +/- acres of additional fields and timber.
Located in the rural central Maine farm community of Dixmont, the property is a reasonable distance from many amenities and services. Bangor is just 20 miles, Belfast on Maine's coast is 22 miles, Portland is just over 100 miles and Boston, Ma is 215 miles.
Dixmont had a population reported to be just under 1,200. The area is very scenic with rolling hardwood hills that virtually glow in the fall.
