A coastal parcel offering residential, agricultural and forestland opportunities, with panoramic views of Cobscook Bay in scenic Downeast Maine. The property is nearly adjacent to our other Seaside View parcel - Lincoln Cove, which has nearly a mile of oceanfront.
Cannon Hill is located in Perry, Maine, a small coastal town in the Downeast Region. The border of New Brunswick, Canada is minutes away. US Route 1 serves as the major thoroughfare, threading between small villages where forestry, blueberry cultivation, and shellfishing remain major employers in the area.
The property is about five miles north of the small city of Eastport (population 1,331), the easternmost city in the United States. Machias, a small but busy harbor town located on Route 1, is about 30 miles away. Portland is about three hours to the southwest. Bangor is roughly two hours west on Route 9. Both Portland and Bangor have international airports. Boston, Massachusetts is about a four-hour drive beyond Portland via I-95.
Cannon Hill Forest has approximately 800' of frontage on Cannon Hill Road, a paved town road with power that runs south from coastal Route 1.
Cannon Hill Forest is named for the small knoll on which it rests. The height of the hill, at 229’ above sea level, offers views of the bay through openings in the tree cover. With minimal clearing, new owners could expand the water views.
The property has well-drained soils with forests comprised of a mix of red spruce, balsam fir and white pine, some of which has been unmanaged for over 25 years.
