The opportunity to buy more than 200 acres of undeveloped land doesn’t often arise on Mount Desert Island.

Lot 001 on Crooked Road in Bar Harbor — what's being billed as “the largest privately-owned undeveloped parcel in Bar Harbor" — is on the market for $4.9 million, according to Laura Farr of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, which is representing the seller.

Portions of the mid-island parcel abut Acadia National Park. It’s 5 miles from Acadia’s main entrance, the Hulls Cove Visitor Center. Maine Coast Heritage Trust owns similarly undeveloped land around some of the parcel, Farr said. The property has 1,493 feet of road frontage and an elevation of 250 feet on the back acreage. 

The listing went live March 16, officially hit the multiple listing service on April 1, and has received several inquiries so far.

“It is attractive to many types of buyers, from developers looking for a prime location for a hospitality venture to someone interested in conservation,” Farr said.

The land has been in the same family since the 1950s, “which is part of the reason why it is still undeveloped," she said, adding the seller prefers to remain anonymous.

It’s a rare opportunity to buy 207 acres on Mount Desert Island, where most acreage has been subdivided over the years, said the broker.
