492± acres of quality off-grid land for sale in Ludlow, Maine, in the southern third of Aroostook County. Not just another lot in the woods this property has a lot of features. Recent roads constructed on the property for nearly 2.5 miles make it possible to drive a car to a large portion of the acreage. A new bridge crossing one of the two trout streams on the property was built with steel, wood, and concrete. The rolling hills on this property offer views in nearly every direction. The acreage is predominately hardwood composing about 65% of the acreage. The balance of the forest is mixed wood stands. The property has had a thinning harvest setting up the new owner with a well distributed and spaced crop of trees. NRCS soil mapping indicates the majority of the acreage to be fertile silt and gravel loams. Trees are growing well on this property. Clearing the land for future crop use could be done in some areas of lesser slopes. Overall the land is rolling with terrain changes from 600 to 800± feet of elevation.
Two water features are on the land, Mill and Lamb Brooks. Mill Brook is the larger of the two and runs west to east across the property for about 4,300± feet. Along its course are riffles and pools sure to hold wild brook trout. Lamb Brook flows out of the private waters of Lamb Brook Pond and also runs easterly across the land for about 1,400± feet before exiting the property. The brooks form the headwaters of the much larger Meduxnekeag River. (Try saying that 3 times fast!) This northern area of Maine has a long history of hunting and fishing with whitetail deer and ruffed grouse being well represented in the region. Most of the local streams and ponds have a wild trout population. Trail riding snowmobiles and ATVs is also popular here with hundreds of miles of groomed trails. If you are looking for alternative entertainment, many of the nearby towns have traditional festivals and fairs celebrating the rural Maine lifestyle.
