Property description
Sheep Island is a pristine, uninhabited island in West Penobscot Bay with spectacular views in all directions. The islands name and its rich soil are a testament to its agricultural heritage; it was used for farming in the 1800s (at one point there was a house and a barn although no evidence of these historic structures remains) and there is evidence of pre-Colonial activity. Today the undeveloped island is a refuge for a variety of wildlife and the landscape is mostly forest with dramatic bluffs, interesting ledge, idyllic coves and pocket beaches.59 acres with 11,000 feet of shorefrontConveniently located about one mile from the mainland and Owls Head HarborClose to two conserved islands with Monroe Island just to the north and Ash Island to the southSeveral pocket beaches including a protected 1,200 foot beach on the north side of the islandPotential for conservation opportunitiesSuitable for residential development - full engineering report and land use analysis availableLocation for a deep-water wharf with a pier in a cove towards the middle of the west side of the islandLocated in the northern most portion of the Muscle Ridge Channel in West Penobscot Bay, this area is well known to boaters who appreciate the archipelagos summer anchorages and unspoiled beauty
