Maine is a remote state, and I’m not sure anyone cares. Heck, even the most outgoing person can appreciate the fact that peace and serenity are only a short drive away. It is one of the best qualities of Maine. How could it be better than that? Easily. Go to an even more remote location, like an island. Everyone knows we’ve had enough.
In fact, Maine has surprisingly more than 3,000 off its rocky shores. Obviously, not all of them are large or assessable enough to be habitable. However, those that are can be nothing short of impressive. This includes an island that just hit the market.
Located in the heart of East Penobscot Bay is the beautiful Fling Island. The 17-acre island is near Deer Isle and North Haven. It is also just a few miles from the coast of Maine, allowing for multiple accessibility options. Fling Island also offers panoramic views of sunrises over the horizon and sunsets behind the Camden Hills. It’s a pretty epic place.
Fling Island already has an access area for kayaks and small watercraft. This same area is also open enough that a pier was built for better access. The island features both wooded and grassy areas, giving it great versatility and character. The sales agency, LandVest, points out that conservation opportunities for the island would be available.
However, the agency notes that there are plenty of residential options as well. They may only be for seasonal use, but that would be a few months. Can you imagine building what you design on land that you own entirely? Where can I make an offer?
The asking price for Fling Island is $1.275 million. You can find more information about this unique property on the sales agency, the LandVest website.
