Wilderness Estate for Sale in Orland, Maine

Sitting on 483 acres with 7,700 feet of private lake frontage, this woodland sanctuary is as close as you can get to owning your own private island while still being attached to the mainland.

Once home to the former oil exec Kenneth Irving, the $7.9 million home is now up for grabs.

Back in September, the woodsy retreat located at 135 Hartview Circle in Orland was listed for $10 million. It is now listed on Realtor.com for $7.9 million, brokered by Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty and presented by Elizabeth Banwell.

In an article with the Wall Street Journal, Irving shared that the property was designed so whether you were indoors or out, you always felt immersed within Maine’s wilderness. It’s truly the best of all worlds - privacy, forest, mountains, lake, the list goes on.

Whether you're soaking in the hot tub designed to naturally fit right into the rocky setting or you're lounging by the stone fireplace indoors, the magnificent home is ideal for all seasons. The private access to the lake, the giant rocks and boulders surrounding the property, and the careful attention to detail indoors create a beautiful private sanctuary that would turn me into a hermit. I love everything about this home and I think you will, too.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, and in this case, $7.9 million. So, I’ll let these speak for themselves.
