We’re showcasing a rare opportunity to own significant acreage on Mount Desert Island near Acadia National Park. “It is the largest privately-owned undeveloped parcel in Bar Harbor,” says Laura Farr, the Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty agent representing the sellers. “It is attractive to many types of buyers, from developers looking for a prime location for a hospitality venture to someone interested in conservation.”

The 207-acre parcel is in an ideal mid-island location on Crooked Road in Bar Harbor, less than 2 miles from the Peggy Rockefeller Farms and 5 miles from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center, the main entrance to Acadia National Park and the start of the famed Park Loop Road. Portions of the parcel border Acadia National Park itself, and other nearby destinations include the Town Hill Market, Atlantic Brewing Company, and Terramor Outdoor Resort. Downtown Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor are only a 10 to 15-minute drive away.

The preliminary survey has been completed, and the back acreage offers 250 feet of elevation with potential distant water views of Frenchman Bay.

“The deed references back to 1895,” says Farr of the historic property. “This land has been in the same family for over 50 years, which is part of the reason why it is still undeveloped.”

Lot 001 on Crooked Road in Bar Harbor, Maine, is offered at $4,900,000. Learn more about this rare piece of land abutting Acadia National Park here.
