Description

Ever dreamed of living on ‘island time’ in Maine? If so, there is shorefront property for sale on Great Wass Island that has the feel of a place out of time! As you leave the mainland of Jonesport and start to make your way over the 1/4 mile long Beals Island Bridge and then over the causeway that takes you to Great Wass Island, you feel the change in dimension of time and space almost immediately. This could be, in large part, because once you are on Great Wass Island, you find yourself farther out to sea than any other land mass in Downeast Maine! Located on Black Duck Cove Road, this 9.46 +/- acre parcel has 200 +/- feet of ocean frontage and 1,500 +/- acres of conservation lands as its neighbor! Dotted with stately conifers and sweeping southwest views, this lot features a beautiful, elevated building site among this quiet, coastal forestland. Here the waters of the Gulf of Maine and the Bay of Fundy mix to produce an oceanic climate that is ideal for marine animals and rare plants. It would not be uncommon for you to see seals haul themselves out of the water to warm in the sun or bird’s-eye primrose growing on exposed headlands in your own front yard. It would also not be uncommon — in fact, it’s guaranteed! — for you to see colorful lobster boats and buoys bobbing in the waters off this property, and to feel the air of authenticity that the ungentrified lobstering villages in the surrounding area exude! If the thought of owning a piece of property that sits on a wild and rugged coastline, amongst primeval spruce forest, with a high concentration of rare subarctic plant and animal species appeals to you, come check this piece out! It contains all the quintessential ecological and cultural characteristics that you would expect of island property in Downeast Maine…and it is hard to imagine it getting any better than that!
