Over 2000 ft. of sound front – Preliminary approval from KOA – Excellent hunting and fishing
This exceptional property is comprised of farmland, woodland, and a pecan orchard on the sound front. With over 2000 ft of sound front and 3000 ft of creek-front this tract of land offers incredible opportunity. With approximately 139 acres of uplands, the site could be suitable for a unique & private development, and amazing corporate retreat site. I imagine a Lodge nestled in the grove of pecan trees over-looking the Albemarle Sound. The property has had basic design for a campground, with preliminary approval from KOA. For the sportsman the property offers deer, bear, turkey, ducks, geese, and small game, plus excellent fishing in the Albemarle sound and Roanoke River. Seasonally the stripers are abundant immediately offshore.
“The Albemarle Sound region is the spawning grounds for bass, herring, shad and several other fish that live in the ocean but spawn in freshwaters. Striped bass is a popular fish to catch here, and the population is quite abundant with older fish as an indicator of a healthy, growing population. Largemouth bass, catfish and white perch also are sometimes found in the Albemarle Sound. You may also be able to catch crappie and flounder, depending on the conditions. Of these fish, some are always available in the region, while others are season. Striped bass never leave the Albemarle Sound region, but their specific locations will vary depending on the season. Largemouth bass and crappie are commonly found in the backwaters areas, with wintertime runs being a popular time to fish for the largemouth bass. Flounder, red drum and weakfish are found in the main basin of the Sound. See more at: http://scotchhallpreserve.com/2014/12/23/fishing-albemarle-sound/#sthash.zRyd2Ipi.dpuf”
“Washington sits next to the country’s second largest estuary, a place where the tide meets the stream. An eastern North Carolina town transforms alongside its water.” To learn more about the Washington area read the following article from the August 2016 issue of Our State at https://www.ourstate.com/like-a-local-washington/?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2016-09%20Travel%20and%20Events%20(1)&utm_content=&spMailingID=26257236&spUserID=ODc1Mzc0MTQ5OTAS1&spJobID=862705894&spReportId=ODYyNzA1ODk0S0
The Albemarle Sound is one of the most unique sounds on the Outer Banks as it gradually transitions from a fun saltwater playground bordering the beaches to a series of mainland estuaries and streams that wind deep into the heart of North Carolina and even Virginia. Originally serving as an essential transportation route for the first colonists, the Albemarle Sound today is a mixture of fun and function. (http://www.outerbanks.com/albemarle-sound.html)
