Coastal building lot for sale in the unorganized township of Trescott. This 1.6 acre lot is sited on the estuary at Bailey’s Mistake.

Walk the sand beach of the public lands, enjoy the shorebirds and other animals that call coastal Maine their home. Great location for seasonal or year round living. Trescott is a rural seaside community of a little over 300 full time residents. It covers about 25 square miles near the most northeastern tip of the US. With such a small year-round population, Trescott has been a part of Maine’s 10 million acre unorganized territory and has no local government since the town de-organized in 1945. It is regulated by the State of Maine and the Division of LUPC (Land Use Planning Commission). Taxes are lower than otherwise typical in Maine and children living within an unorganized township attend school in nearby towns. Trescott is informally divided into north and south regions. The phrase “you can’t get there from here” somewhat applies when traveling from North Trescott to South Trescott and having to leave town in order to get to the other part of town! In the Southern part of Trescott is the typical Bold Coast of Downeast Maine with sheer cliffs dropping down to the crashing surf below with a few coves, brooks and estuaries at sea level. There are a number of preserved parcels along this rocky coastline open to the public for exploration and enjoyment. The Northern portion offers a number of bays and inner streams and brooks to be enjoyed. There are over 12,000 acres of preserved lands open to the public all within a 30 min drive from any part of Trescott. Enjoy the four seasons on the trails and waterfront access. Downeast Maine - a great place to live and play.
