Large Tract of Land Being Offered Adjacent to Widely Acclaimed Great Brook Preserve's Conservation Land

NEWRY, ME--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Governor Baldacci had recognized this conservation land donation by Great Brook Preserve at a speech he gave at Sunday River's Grand Summit Hotel. Governor Baldacci acknowledged the original large land donation by the owners of Great Brook Preserve to Western Mountains Foundation, a charitable organization.

Governor Baldacci, during that same visit, went on to add, "This is exactly the type of land development that the state of Maine needs" and "it is great to see that hundreds of acres of land have been donated for preservation in perpetuity." These quotes were in reference to Great Brook Preserve's developers donating nearly one square mile of land to a charitable foundation.

David Herring, the Executive Director representing the foundation, indicates, "This several-hundred acre donation of land is a critical link for Western Mountains Foundation into Newry from the north/east and links our corridor to the Outward Bound L.L. Bean Mountain Center." Mr. Herring adds, "It is a very important piece of land for us and moves us one step closer to achieving our objective of conserving a 180-mile corridor from Rockwood to the Newry area and building and operating a hut and trail system."

Adjacent to this donated conservation easement, Great Brook Preserve is offering a 567 acre tract of land for 1.5 million dollars. This land is on top of the community and overlooks the entire Sunday River Valley. Because of its size, the large acreage property gives a buyer plenty of freedom to use the land in a myriad of ways. Part of the property could be donated to a conservation group, offering a buyer huge tax advantages and adding to the conservation land already a part of the Great Brook Preserve development.

Dave Verani of LandSource, LLC says, "This is about delivering on a project that we can be proud of for many generations. In the land development world you can leave your mark in many different ways. We feel that Great Brook Preserve is an example of the right way. We are very proud of what this represents for the state of Maine, our customers and for our legacy as a company." Mr. Verani adds, "We are talking about a premium land donation with land that could have been very marketable with incredible views of the Mahoosuc Mountain Range, Sunday River Ski Resort, streams and waterfalls that will be accessible as great hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobile and fishing venues."

Jeff Bailey also of LandSource, LLC mentioned, "Great Brook Preserve in Sunday River, Maine area is a project that is attracting an evolving group of customers that are strong environmental advocates and also are seeking premium quality for primary, secondary or retirement homes."

LandSource, LLC is limited partnership company based in Bedford, New Hampshire that focuses on offering premium quality, private setting lots with close proximity to recreational venues and environmental advocacy.

Great Brook Preserve at Sunday River offers not only great proximity and views of Sunday River Ski Resort but also very close access to the award-winning Sunday River Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Grafton Notch State Park as well as Historic Bethel Village. Additionally each of the home sites borders the preserved conservation land with incredible features like waterfalls, hiking and groomed cross country ski trails, trout brook and beautiful views.
