Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - The Steven Chicoine Team

Balch Lake


Acton, Maine is but a blip on the radar of Maine. Comprised of only around 1500 residents, it is a favorite of visitors to Maine due to the wealth of water around the town. Between Acton, Newfield, Shapleigh there are 22 lakes/ponds of varying sizes. One of those larger bodies is Balch Lake.  


According to www.lakesofmaine.org ,Balch Lake encompasses about 577 acres, and shares shores with both Maine and New Hampshire. With a mean depth of 12 feet and 44 feet at it's deepest, Balch  is home to some great fishing! Looking for Small or Largemouth Bass - this is the place to be!


So just how do you gain access to such great fishing and water that ranks high in water quality? Well, there is no private access, so you have to live there. Your deed will have a couple of deeded rights of way, as well as a boat launch. You just need to find the right house or parcel of land! 



Which do you prefer? Granted, if a house is already built, you can move right in and fish, kayak, or motorboat right away - but at what cost? However, if you purchase a reasonably priced parcel of land, imagine the possibilities! You can choose the layout, price point, and size of your new home, and be in it in just a few months. Case in point: MLS land listing 1117395, located in the Ridge in Acton. 5.16 acres for $39,900. The Right of Way to Balch is just a quick bike ride down to the next road. Lovely treed lot, especially perfect for a home with a daylight basement.  



If you don't have a builder in mind, take note of MLS residential listing 1123998. Patco, a popular construction company in souther Maine, has priced out this wonderful 1440 square foot cape with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and an lovely flexible floor plan for $219,900. Other floor plans and prices are available, just ask!  

Either way, be in your home in Acton in no time, and be there in time to boat, fish and swim - or at least ice-fish, snowmobile and snowshoe! A wonderful peaceful "place in Maine".




Call today for directions on getting to the lot - be in to a house in time to enjoy the beautiful fall colors that surround Balch Lake!
