All backed up by a propane generator..2.6-acres of land with no restrictions on its use, make for a large house lot. Surrounded by 86.1 acres restricted from development by two conservation easements (CE), both held by Orono Land Trust. The two CEs include an old growth forest of about 36 acres that has not been cut for about 150 years featuring a beaver flowage with two beaver ponds. The CE land abuts hundreds of acres held by the OLT with its many recreational trails used by outdoors enthusiasts. That land abuts thousands of acres of protected land. The easement restricts all building development and doesn't allow commercial forestry. CE land has recorded Moose, Black Bear, White-tailed Deer, Fisher, Bobcat, Coyote, Red Fox and many other animals. In the beaver ponds there are many species of birds as well as Otter, Mink, and of course, beaver. The forest north of the house has been used for a breeding bird study for 10 successive years. Two vernal pools on the property have been intensely studied by researchers from the University of Maine.This home is the essence of the Maine woods with all that Orono has to offer. Don't miss your chance.
