Remarkable lakeside property with excellent access and power at the street. This ±325-acre tract with over 3,000’ of frontage on Round Pond and reaching elevations of around 1,900’ is an extraordinary property. Round Pond is a ±166 acre, ±50’ deep, cold-water fishery containing native and stocked Brook Trout as its main fishery. An occasional salmon can be landed. There are two small inlets along the north shore, and the outlet at the south shore flows into nearby Dodge Pond. The shorefront is very attractive and has four shorefront lots that were previously approved as part of a larger subdivision. No development has taken place on the property other than an improved internal access road that includes an underground conduit for power and phone.
The remaining unowned shorefront is very lightly developed with just a few camps, all but unnoticeable from this tract. The views of ±3,000’ foot Spotted Mountain to the north are incredible. The remaining land has been well managed with limited harvesting in the recent past. Mature northern hardwoods, along with mixed wood stands, dominate this tract. Regeneration is adequate throughout the parcel. The area within the shoreland zone that protects the water quality on Round Pond appears to have not been harvested for many years. On the way up to the height of land known as Round Top, at an elevation of around 1,900’, are commanding views of Ephraim Ridge to the Northwest and spectacular distant views of Saddleback Mountain to the Southeast and beyond. The property has an established trail network making it easy to explore this kingdom lot. The historic town of Rangeley has approximately 1,200-year-round residents and is minutes away with some great restaurants, shops, small movie theater, and a small municipal airport. The Rangeley Lakes region in the western mountains is truly a four-season playground. Winter activities include world-class snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing at Saddleback ski area.
It should be noted that Saddleback has been dormant for a few years and recently purchased with major plans of upgrading the whole complex in the summer of 2020. Wildlife viewing in the area is second to none with Moose, Black Bear, and White Tail deer very plentiful. Loons can be seen, and sometimes more impressively heard on most of the lakes and ponds in the area. Summertime brings boating, fishing, biking, golfing and hiking. The ±6,000-acre Rangeley Lake and even bigger ±16,300-acre Mooselookmeguntic Lake are just minutes away. The ±2,181 mile Appalachian Trail is nearby along with miles and miles of other hiking trails. The property is only ±125 miles from Portland, Maine, and 40 miles, the small, vibrant small town of Farmington. This property is worth a look!
