$90,000 down. 2.5 acre oceanfront property on island w/year-round bridge to US (Campobello Island)

23 Owens Court

(google map)

no laundry on site
no parking

Imagine this as being your view. This is by far, the most beautiful Bold Oceanfront Property available on the enchanting Island of Campobello. Campobello Island is just off the coast of Downeast Maine within what's known as "The Quoddy Loop" on the Bay of Fundy. It lies directly across from Lubec, Maine and Eastport, Maine.

The property is "Bold Oceanfront" and not "Tidal Oceanfront." With Bold Oceanfront, you do not see mud at low tide. You always see water!!! With Tidal Oceanfront, when the tide is low, you see mud flats for your view. This is why Bold Oceanfront property is more expensive. It's all about the view!

This magical island is where many Americans build their summer homes and this spot is within walking/hiking distance to the legendary FDR Cottage - exactly 2 miles as the eagle flies. Campobello Island and the FDR Cottage was recently featured on the PBS documentary, "The Roosevelts" and is where Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his family spent their summers. He routinely and affectionately referred to Campobello as "my beloved island." Today, the Roosevelt International Bridge connects Campobello Island to Maine in his honor.

All of the images that you see here were all taken from this very property except for two (2) ... the lighthouse shot, which was taken from Lubec and the marina shot, which is on Campobello but a few miles away. Also, one of the pictures shows what the property might look like once you build on it but the house is only a rendering (real lot / spec home). We have actually had several architectural plans drafted for the perfect home and will include the designs along with the purchase. This particular design is a rendering only but honestly, any small dwelling on a magnificent oceanfront property like this equals an excellent investment.

This property has been soil-tested and the island has plenty of fresh water. Electricity & telephone service is already at the road with access to the Internet. Local services include police & fire protection, schools, a library, grocery stores, restaurants, shops, a clinic, a golf course, a marina, a pebble beach, campgrounds, motels and miles of nature trails.

This area is famous for its Right Whale migration that takes place during the summer months but that's not where it ends. In addition to whale-watching, you will enjoy world-class fishing, hiking, cycling, bird-watching, sailing, seal-watching and more. You will also find four (4) well-known lighthouses here - all within a few miles of each other. They are Head Harbour Light, Mulholland Point Light, Lubec Channel Light and West Quoddy Head Light.

A short 25 miles from the bridge is the town of Machias, Maine - the County Seat for neighboring Washington County, Maine. Machias has a large, modern hospital, a fire department, a police department, a sheriff’s department, an ambulance service, several banks, a major grocery store, filling stations, multiple home improvement centers and more. There is so much to see and do here. Below is a list of U.S. cities and towns to explore within 100 miles of Campobello Island:
