Easy one story living in this 28 x 48’ Ranch surrounded by 7± acres and abutting state land.

Outside the home has cedar shingles and a metal roof for easy maintenance. A 38 x 38 garage offers plenty of space to house a commercial fishing vessel, RV or any number of recreational “toys”. The 7± acre lot has frontage on Schooner Brook and is one of the boundaries for this property. The other side of Schooner Brook is part of the State of Maine Cutler Trail.
Cutler Harbor, a deep-water harbor and home to Cutler’s commercial fishing fleet, is located just a short 3 miles from here. You can moor your commercial or pleasure boat and take advantage of the deep water and protected harbor. If boating is not for you, you are just a ½ mile from the parking lot for the Cutler Coast Public Reserve Land and Trails. This 12,334-acre preserve covers an expanse if blueberry barrens, peat bogs and woodlands with a 4.5 mile of headlands (interspersed by pocket coves and cobble beaches) overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Hikers can enjoy 10 miles of trails, three remote tent sites and spectacular views from the property's steep cliffs-part of the dramatic "Bold Coast" that extends from Cutler to Lubec.
Washington County is sometimes referred to as the "Sunrise County" because it includes the eastern most point in the United States, and where many believe the sun first rises on the forty-eight contiguous states. Blueberries play a major role; nearly 85% of the world's supply of wild blueberries comes from Washington County. Lobsters accounted for over $45 million dollars of economic activity in 2014.
Washington County was established June 25, 1789 in conjunction with Hancock County. Originally Washington County stretched along the eastern border of New Brunswick all the way to the disputed northern boundary with Canada. Machias was established as the shiretown and is just a half hour drive from this home.
The county covers 3,258 square miles with 695 square miles of water, or 21% of the land mass. The population is located, for the most part, along the coast. The county is so large that it takes four hours to drive from one end to the other. During that drive you will enjoy the ever-changing topography. From the great rock formations, lakes and streams and wide-open expanses - some with large blueberry barrens.
Washington County is a lot of things. It is the most gorgeous, has the deepest cargo port, the longest coastline including the Bold Coast, the highest tides, and produces the most lobster and clam landings. What Washington County does not have is lots of traffic lights (only three in the whole county), an interstate, a Red Lobster Restaurant, or poisonous snakes. Enjoy all that Downeast Maine has to offer for a season or a lifetime!
