Coastal Living Magazine calls Orr's and Bailey Islands ''The jewels of mid-coast Maine.'' This beautiful Orr's island property tucked a few hundred yards from the cooling breezes of the Atlantic Ocean is over five acres of improved, level, permitted land with a cleared building site, a capped off, completed full-cement foundation with a connected two-car garage cement slab. There is extensive underground drainage in place and radon protection pipes. This is a rare opportunity to own Orr's Island property with low Harpswell taxes. The property is located on private road in an ocean-front community with beautiful homes and gardens. It is quiet and cool in summer with some ocean views on the second floor and a ROW walk to the ocean where you can picnic, read a book, or watch the open ocean. The building site has electricity, as well as a brand new 3 bedroom underground septic system installed. The completed foundation is for a 3000 s.f. two story home with a screened-in porch. Also planned was a separate two-story 1,700-plus ft. barn,/boat storage/hobby outbuilding behind the house. The previously permitted design is included, but you have design choices as the property is spacious. Note Buyer/s will need to re-apply for building permits. Bailey Island is accessed from Orr's Island by the world famous Cribstone bridge, the only one in the world. The property also has an improved driveway with gravel and ledge and full foundation capped off. The Orr's and Bailey Islands Yacht Club is a possibility for boaters, as well as fine dining and culture in nearby Brunswick with Bowdoin College, theater, live music and shopping. Live the dream with this rare property on mid-coast Maine.
