Fee lands for Sale

*Hampden: A 27-acre parcel zoned Residential B located on Mayo Road, Hampden, Maine. It has road frontage in 2 locations on Mayo Road, the northerly frontage is approximately 30 feet and the southerly frontage is approximately 130 feet. Conforming residential lots must have at least 200 feet along a public road, so to develop the lot will require a variance from the Town.

*Lakeville: This is comprised of 4 separate lots.

  1. The largest lot is 13.4 acres located on Bottle Lake and is enrolled in the Maine Tree Growth Tax program. About half of the lots consists of non-forested wetlands.
  2. 8.1-acre lot along Horseshoe Stream that runs between Junior Lake and Horseshoe Lake.
  3. Blueberry Island is 1.11 acres and located within Sysladobsis Lake and contains an old building. Inquiry should be made with the Town to see if the existing building has grandfathered status for building a new camp because it does not otherwise meet set back requirements for a building permit.
