Property Description

Only two hours from Boston awaits a one of a kind lakefront escape. Your opportunity to own the 1.65 acre peninsula at the point of Shepard's Island (road accessed). 1,650' of waterfront wraps around natural sandbars offering some of the best sandy bottomed swimming in the region while providing a complete sense of privacy. This unique lakefront has the feel of your very own summer camp with winding foot paths, picnic areas, fire pits, native blueberry bushes and a large dock for kayaking and boating. Balch Lake is one of the largest and most desirable lakes in Southern Maine and offers every form of recreation. Swim, boat, relax, escape, play, camp, cook, explore, dance, entertain, and make a lifetime of memories. The Ward cedar log home feels warm and inviting as soon as you enter. This beloved and well maintained home is deceptively large with enough space to sleep everyone with 3 bedrooms and a full basement with a bunk room. The large screened porch is a lovely place to relax or dine and provides a wonderful shelter on rainy afternoons. Each summer will feel like magic but don't forget the fall! The lake comes alive with color as the leaves turn, local orchards open, and the fair season begins. Make annual traditions of Maine's best fireworks show at Old Home Days and the late summer Acton Fair. Located within 30 minutes of golf and only 1-hour to the White Mountains.
