11 acres with apple trees! Circa 1950 in Maine. $145,000

December 29, 2022

The property has apple trees, blueberries and blackberries! This home was built in 1950. It is located on 11 acres in Phillips, Maine. The house looks cute. Would make a great summer vacation spot. Great porch to soak in the views! This described as a camp. It is off grid, but the home is wired with a breaker panel and a generator. The kitchen and bathroom are plumbed, but no water source. There is a spring fed well near the house where you “could gather water to flush toilet”. I would like to take my 16 year old daughter there for a weekend. No wi-fi, no power, no flushable toilet. One bedroom, one bathroom and 532 square feet. $145,000

From the Zillow listing:


Come enjoy this multigenerational family camp at the top of a beautiful grassy clearing dotted with 100 year old apple trees, blueberries and blackberries.. Sit on the porch swing and soak in the serenity of the mountain views and wildlife or enjoy some downtime with friends and family on the huge porch. Stay comfortable with a cozy plumbed kitchen and living room downstairs with an amply sized bunk room upstairs. This camp is off grid, but is wired with a breaker panel and generator hookup. There is a natural spring fed well at the bottom of the hill that could be utilized for the flush toilets or you can collect sparkling fresh spring water at the roadside just a few miles away. Located in beautiful Western Maine, this camp offers views of the Bigelow mountain range, and Saddleback mountain.. It is only 15 minutes to stunning Smalls Falls, 20 minutes to Rangeley, and 34 minutes to Saddleback mountain ski area. The outdoor recreation in this area is endless. Enjoy extensive dirt roads to explore, atv trails galore and snowmobile trails that stretch across the state. Easy access to the Sandy river which is famous for gold panning and also offers some great brookie fishing! Of course, you don’t have to be out playing all the time. You can always sit quietly on the porch or at the table in front of the large picture window and just take in the serenity of the place as you sip your morning coffee and just unwind. Finally, don’t miss the awesome Ashley wood stove. This wood stove will vastly extend your camp season, keeping you comfortable on those chilly mountain nights. We’ve included some fresh paper birch firewood for the new owners to enjoy.
