About L R01-001 Route 1

Cherryfield, this 7.7 open rolling field offers around 306' on Rt 1 and 485 on the river. This field was part of a long time family farm, first with dairy cattle and most recently a working horse farm. The area is rich in history and this lot offers a great variety of very nice building spots with the river as a focal point. Open fields for your use, animals, lawn, or very generous garden spots. What would you build here? Rich in local history, the town of Cherryfield was settled in 1757 by Ichabod Willey and Samuel Colson, incorporated in 1816 and named for the mass amounts of wild cherries that once covered the riverbanks of the Narraguagus River. (Narraguagus is Abenaki Indian for ''Above the boggy place.'') Now known as the Blueberry capital of the world due to the wild blueberry barrens and the processing of the berries by both Wymans and Cherryfield Foods. The current population is around 1100 people. If you tour along near the river in town you will notice many fine larger historic homes that are on the Nation Register of Historic places, most coming from the area lumber barons when the river was heavily used for marketing lumber. This Rt 1 lot is approximately 7.7 acres of open gently rolling field, once part of a working dairy farm and most recently pasture for a horse farm. This lot offers about 300 feet of frontage on Rt 1 and 950 on the river. The lot would be fantastic for your dream home and would be suitable for most building styles. Cherryfield is about a half hours drive from Machias, the county seat of the area... close to many area public parks and hiking trails along with the sunrise trail for ATV and snowmobile use. Just over a half hours drive will take you to Ellsworth and Bar Harbor beyond that, about an hour to Bangor.
