It is hard to put into words the change that happens when you step off of the mainland and onto one of Maine's islands. Time seems to stall as you remove yourself from the traffic and chaos of everyday life. This new sense of relaxation and lifestyle is often referred to as 'Island Time'. Imagine yourself going to one of Maine's sandy beaches, quiet harbors or dining at some of the best waterfront restaurants without ever getting into a car. Wood Island offers property owners all of these opportunities, a 1 acre house site and a 1/6 interest in 33 acres of common conservation land on a 39 acre island all just a short boat ride from the mainland. Enjoy the privacy of the island's 3,000 feet of waterfront with pocket beaches, an emerald forest of spruce trees, bold cliffs and ledges offering expansive views of the Maine coast without ever leaving the island. Grab a seat and watch the eagles, osprey, great blue heron, porpoise and seals as they fish and play. If you prefer, a short boat ride to Phippsburg, Harpswell, Freeport or Portland will provide you with an experience few people will ever get to enjoy. From old military forts, towers and bunkers, to museums and historic sites to explore, to excellent kayaking, fishing, and gunk holing on the uninhabited islands off the coast. The challenges of living on an island are rewarded with privacy, relaxation, and incredible water views at a fraction of the cost of comparable space on the mainland. The building site for lot 3 provides expansive views east towards mainland Phippsburg with its beach covered shoreline, to the south east views of Small Point and beyond to open ocean where you can watch to local fisherman return with their days catch into the harbors just north of Wood Island. This building site will also provide westerly views looking back to the mouth of the New Meadows River.
