The Cookie Tree Farm is located on the beautiful North Shore of North Haven. Property is rarely available for sale on this stretch of road that is seen in so many sunset and wildflower photos and in windjammer seascapes.
This 16 acre property extends across fields and forest (plus a pond to dredge if you wish) reaching 220 feet of pristine and private beach on Penobscot Bay. The land is inviting for division, or for planning a family compound. Photos hardly capture the wider waterfront views nor the clarity of the water.
One building site (see photo above) near the water has already been soil-tested and another – above the pond – would provide beautiful views of the Camden Hills and Penobscot Bay. A third area is very close to the private beach if that is preferred for a new home.
The photo shows our side field with numerous apple trees. We’ve been told that the field was used for baseball by island men in years gone by.
Artists have always been at home on North Haven and the porch of the Cookie Tree Farm has been known to have some painting groups gather over the years. More advanced art is a highlight of the Summer Art Show, not to mention seasonal galleries and exhibits in the village and community center.
The property includes a large, classic New England barn suitable for conversion with the same stunning view of the water, fields, Camden Hills, and sunsets.
A one-mile walk, bike, or drive to Pulpit Harbor – a globally-renowned New England sailing destination – offers convenient kayaking, fishing, picnics, sailing, and purchase of local lobster dinners to enjoy on the Cookie Tree Farm lawn or enclosed porch.
A mooring is available for you in Pulpit Harbor for your boat, at less cost and worry than a private dock in New England waters. We have been told, however, that it is possible to have a summer dock or mooring down at our beach.
On the North Shore of North Haven, southwest and northeast of this property, are three substantial waterfront parcels protected from development, ensuring preservation of of the special beauty of the North Shore near the Cookie Tree Farm. Two of these parcels have been curated by North Haven Conservation Partners, a very active local environmental non-profit. The other is the result of work by a Maine-based organization.
Private waterfront access in Maine is now especially valuable. Larger waterfront properties of summer cottages have substantially higher taxes. One 16 acre home sold for four million dollars last summer, with extensive waterfront and a swimming pool. There’s lots of room on the Cookie Tree Farm property to build a pool and fill it with the good spring water that is always available.
