924 Cutler Road, Machiasport, Maine, 04655
Located in the coastal community of Machiasport, this New England Farm style home is surrounded with 70+/- acres. The home sits high up off the road and offers a large addition in the front overlooking beautiful Holmes Bay. The great room features a large field stone fireplace with large windows on each side frame views of the star-studded night skies twinkling over the bay. An eat-in kitchen, master bedroom, laundry room, mud room and bath complete the first floor. The second floor has two bedrooms, each with built in draws. Recent updates include a new roof on the back of the home to correct inefficient flashing from the previous job, a new boiler in 12/2018, and some updated appliances.
An old woods road on the South East side of the property will take you up the hill to the top where one can imagine the view below once trees are cleared – you can see for miles over the bay. Create a mini-farm or clear the fields again for planting. Many options with wood to cut, fields to mow and gardens to grow.
Located in the “East Side of the Port”, this home is just a short 5 miles or so to Machias, which is the county seat and the place to go for groceries, banking, doctors and more. The old saying “you can’t get there from here is almost true - to get to the rest of Machiasport you need to travel thru East Machias, around and across the bridge to the rest of the town. The trip to the other end of town follows the E. Machias and Machias Rivers and is very scenic.
Machias is also home to the University of Maine at Machias, the Downeast Community Hospital, Maine Wild Blueberries processing and distribution center, Washington County Sherriff’s office, Washington County District Court, Registry of Deeds and other companies and services both large and small.
If you enjoy the out of doors, a connection to the Sunrise Trails is just 4 miles down the road to East Machias. The 87.9-mile Down East Sunrise Trail passes through the woods, marshlands, and coastal villages of southern Washington County Maine. The rail-trail follows a section of a 19th-century railroad that ran between Calais and Bangor. The branch closed after Maine Central was sold in the 1980s, and the Maine Department of Transportation acquired the rail bed in 1987. The first section of trail opened in 2009, and crews completed the 2-mile-long final section in Ellsworth in 2016. The trail is open to hiking, biking, ATV’s, horseback riding and more in the summer and to snowmobiles and cross-country skiing in the winter.
If you prefer to stay near the waterfront there are over 20,000 acres of preserved lands leading to such remote beaches as Hamilton Cove in Lubec, Holmes Cove and the bold ocean in Cutler and of course Quoddy Head State Park in Lubec and Cobscook Bay Campground in Edmunds – all within a 30 minute drive. Downeast Maine – a great place to live, work and play.
