Just 1 mile from the Washburn city limits, accessible from East or West and close to Lake Superior, you'll be happy to find a 20-acre parcel ready your home, or for small-scale agriculture. Level terrain, easy to work with. Build your home at the South meadow or closer to the town road for easy access. 2-track farm road along the West boundary, with a large 20-ft. culvert at the town road & a "rock crossing" over a small drainage. Recent improvements include some land "shaping" for improved drainage, lime & fertilizer applications to produce an excellent hay crop, beautiful corn and some oats. Organic matter has been worked into this soil, resulting in a nice top layer of ~4" silty clay loam with transitory clay below. Electricity across the road. Perfect place for a "market garden", selling from this site or wholesale. Walk or bike to Washburn or to Houghton Falls Natural Area & Lake Superior. Ideal for horses, cows, hay, fruit, corn & more! Enjoy the benefit of the lake effect micro-climate thanks to Lake Superior, bringing 2 weeks extra growing season & milder winters! Very low taxes per Ag-Use classification. Look for the two sandhill cranes that have made this home for the past few years.
