Less than a 30-minute drive to the Maine seaboard, the quaint 24.3-acre family community of Togus Pond offers an outdoor lifestyle close to the city. Located on the outskirts of Maine’s capital city of Augusta, the 21-site Togus Pond land leased community features oversized lots, and has recently been renovated with upgraded home sites and new pavement. Residents enjoy a slice of off-the-grid living, thanks to the community’s own water source. A stone’s throw from Togus Pond, afternoons can be spent with the family canoeing along islands and coves through acres of fragrant water lilies.
One of the top five fastest growing states in the nation, Maine’s burgeoning capital of Augusta (population 18,500) serves 70,000 people statewide and boasts first rate schools, safe neighborhoods and progressive medical facilities. Togus Pond is located within miles of a new, under-construction 600,000 square-foot, $380 million regional hospital, the recently-completed, state-of-the-art 59,000 square-foot Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care and the US Veterans Hospital.
There’s no shortage of culture in Augusta, either! The shopping mecca of Augusta Marketplace (servicing a population of 250,000) is minutes away, as is the Turnpike Mall. It’s a pleasant drive on recently renovated roadways to Maine’s two largest seaside towns – Portland one hour to the south and Bangor one hour to the north – and only 3 1/2 hours to Boston. Augusta is within a 20-minute drive to 5 major colleges and universities. Unique festivals, award-winning restaurants and nationally-renowned antique shopping offer interesting cultural attractions.
The gateway to outdoor adventure, Augusta is within striking distance of the ocean, mountains, forests and thousands of lakes, and offers outdoor activities like kayaking, golf, fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and hiking to keep residents and their visitors entertained year-round. Augusta sits on the banks of the rejuvenated Kennebec River, a modern-day ecological success story, with wildlife population numbers rivaling one hundred years ago.
