Great Brook Preserve (GBP) with 69 large acreage tracts of land is a gated village located just minutes from Sunday River Ski Resort and the award-winning Sunday River Golf Club. This truly is a rare opportunity to own over several hundred acres of pristine estate sized Maine land in one of Newry’s most stunning private villages. Watch the skiers descend Sunday River from your front-row vista overlooking the slopes of one of the Northeast’s premier ski resorts.
What makes GBP a truly unique and nature friendly property is that each tract of land directly borders hundreds of acres of unspoiled conservation land. This gives owners direct access to miles of hiking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing right out their back door. Trails meander through the woods to the nearby Grafton Loop trail which connects directly to the Appalachian Trail.
GBP made the rare move to put conservation and the environment before development. In fact, only 6% of the original 8,700 acres of unique and nature friendly property will be utilized for development purposes. The overwhelming majority of the land has been preserved for both private and public use. GBP took its dedication to conservation even one step further. To ensure permanent preservation, several hundred acres of land was donated to the Conservation Land Trust and deeded to the Western Maine Charitable Foundation. GBP played a very important role in a large scale conservation effort in the state of Maine. Governor Baldacci affirmed during the community launch that “This is exactly the type of land development that the state of Maine needs. It is great to see that hundreds of acres of land have been donated for preservation in perpetuity.”
Named Great Brook Preserve because of its roaring brooks and cascading waterfalls that can be found within its boundaries, it is a true gem in Southwestern Maine. GBP is surrounded by hundreds of miles of some of Maine’s most dramatic and spectacular views. These newly released huge tracts of land have views that capture both the Mahoosuc Mountain Range and the White Mountains. Yet, they are only minutes from the historic village of Bethel, Maine.
