FAYETTE – Here on high ground looking out over Parker Pond, to which it has deeded access, is a very affordable year-round property, offered for sale at $165,900.

Built in 1995, the one-owner, classic “camp” has seen significant upgrades recently, including a new, 12-foot-by-18-foot composite deck facing out to the water; new windows; very nice horizontal pine paneling essentially throughout the 768-square-foot interior; and a big garden shed that’s perfect for storing the kayaks or canoes you can put in at the boat launch that’s close by.

The square footage may sound unimpressive, but there are three levels of living here, or near. There’s a ladder up to a sleeping loft that’s great for kids. The lower level, in addition to a utility space that also holds laundry and  workshop with bench, has a good-sized, paneled bedroom; a newer, full both with shower enclosure; and an unfinished bonus room with walkout beneath the deck. A new owner who’s handy will particularly appreciate the opportunity to create more finished space. Heat is forced hot air, and the oil tank is new.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is big and paneled (no pokey “camp” bedrooms here) and has a double, step-in closet. Across the hall is the updated full bath with oval sink and soaking tub. The main living space is open-plan, with the kitchen (gas range) and dining and sitting areas (note the wood stove) flowing together. There’s a back deck, too, screened by pretty woodland.

“A relatively undeveloped, picturesque body of water about 20 miles east of Augusta,” the state of Maine describes the pond, which is sizable at 1,610 acres and has a maximum depth of 76 feet. The fishery includes both salmon and bass. The buyer here will have the option of joining the local association, whose priority is conservation and which has been instrumental in creating the 142-acre Parker Pond Headland Preserve, into which this home is nestled.

The home at 44 North Fellows Farm Road, Fayette, is listed for sale by David Stephen Paul of The Maine Real Estate Network (Auburn office) and is being shown by appointment. Annual taxes are $1,685.
