Property Description

Where the average home on Merrymeeting Bay sells for over $1m, this is an unparalleled opportunity to create your dream home on a grandfathered lot with 500 feet of direct frontage on Merrymeeting Bay. You'd never be able to build this close to the water today! The main house consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and the attached in-law apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Keep the additional unit to rent out (short or long term would certainly be lucrative with this view!), use for your family, or combine it all into one unit for a spacious single family. With 3 acres of very private land, you have plenty of space to spread out, and your closest neighbors are a family of bald eagles who have a nest on one of the nearby trees. Merrymeeting Bay is one of the most magical bodies of water in Maine as it is where freshwater and saltwater collide, creating the most diverse, plentiful wildlife and nature. Who needs TV when you have this view! Home has deferred maintenance, value is in the grandfathered footprint and lot. Will not take certain types of financing. An excellent opportunity for a builder, investor, or someone with savings to do a big renovation. To view a full video walk through tour, head over to YouTube and search for the property address. Thanks for looking!
