In residential real estate it is rare to find a property for sale that fronts a wild pond. To find one that fronts two, that is a new definition of scarcity. On Weir and Round Ponds in the woods of Lee, Maine, there is an off grid property like no other.
The two bedroom one bath cottage lives on a bridge of land that separates the two ponds. The owners designed it for year round use as a primary residence or a vacation home. This comfortable cabin has the quintessential wrap around porch with views of both ponds. A low maintenance exterior is finished with long lasting cedar shingle and roofed in metal to shed winter snows.
When you enter the home the first thing you notice is the beautiful wood interior finish. There is a pleasant contrast between the hardwood flooring and the matched pine walls. Custom windows bring in natural light that warms the wood cathedral ceiling above an open kitchen, dining, and living room space. Next you are amazed at the kitchen finish in an off grid setting. A quality gas range and refrigerator are connected by gorgeous granite counters with pink and blue highlights. The living area is completed with a first floor bedroom adjacent to the full bath and an upstairs master bedroom with its own half bath.
The mechanicals of this home are top notch. An efficient diesel power generator is muffled in its own building keeping sound to a minimum. Heating is done with an LP gas stove, which requires no electricity, and a modern heat pump for both heating and cooling. The home sets on a full concrete footer and has a drilled well and modern septic system.
20 +/- acres of mature red and white pine and ancient hemlocks growing in a near parklike setting surround the cabin and keep it hidden from view. The home sets on an elevated site with a natural slope to the frontage on each pond. Near the cabin is a gravel bottom swimming hole on the Weir Pond side and room for a dock on the Round Pond side.
Round Pond is spring fed 10 acre brook trout pond with depths up to 29 feet. Only one other cabin is on this pond. Weir Pond is a 45 acre pond with depths up to 25 feet. This is the headwaters of the Passadumkeag River and is an underutilized resource for wilderness paddling enthusiasts.
The property is located near the southeast corner of Lee. The abutting towns of Number 3 Township, Springfield and Lakeville share this corner. This is a semi-remote spot yet only 25 minutes by car to Lincoln, Maine. Call today to schedule a showing of this rare opportunity.
