1. 2 Acre Riverfront Homesite
This 1.2 acre large riverfront homesite is 3 miles from historic Washington. This lot is over twice the size of most riverfront sites on the Whichards Beach Road peninsula. A septic improvement permit is in place. The lot is partially cleared and ready to be groomed for a new home. A temporary PLAT along with the septic permit is in the attached documents section. Over 160′ of river front will give spectacular views. Head upriver 10 minutes and you are skiing on the slickest water found in eastern North Carolina or head 30 minutes down river and you are accessing the Intercoastal Waterway. Morehead City and the Outer Banks are both day trips by water with the right kind of boat. The lot PLAT is temporary and may be adjusted to suit.
Today, Washington maintains an important position in Eastern North Carolina. As a City of approximately 10,000 people and a greater community of approximately 26,000 residents, Washington remains the economic, cultural, recreational, and medical center of Beaufort County and of several other counties as well. The rivers, although no longer vital to the shipping trade, supply a valuable recreational, ecological, and aesthetic resource. With the renewed interest in historic preservation and downtown revitalization, Washington is a city that truly lives up to its motto: “Pride in the past, faith in the future.”
Public pre-kindergarten through high school education is offered through the Beaufort County Schools. A charter school and parochial and non-parachocial private schools also are available. The area also is served by Beaufort County Community College and East Carolina University.
Washington is served by a diverse and thriving medical community revolving around Vidant Beaufort Hospital. Specialized medical care also is available 20 miles west in Greenville, through Vidant Health Systems.
