This home sits on a two-acre peninsula surrounded by a horseshoe shaped twenty-five-acre private lake.

Large red-brick working fireplace with easy access woodbox adjacent to the fireplace provides all night comfort. The screened in front porch is the hotspot of the farm.

Underside of the house has been weatherized, and brand new three-ton Carrier HVAC for downstairs and two-ton Carrier HVAC for upstairs along with all new ductile work has been installed. Eighty gallon AO-Smith hot water heater assures you will never run out of hot water. A one-hundred and eighty-two foot deep well was recently installed which yields eighty gallons a minute to supply the homestead. Outside amenities include a new roof, a two-car garage with insulated hurricane rated garage door along with front and back decks. All decks are handicap accessible and allow easy access on either side of house. Two stone patios at either end of the back deck supply ample room for entertainment and beautiful views of the lake from either side. The front decks and porch offer a wide panoramic view and unimpeded front view spanning for miles.
The access road that circles the lake is one mile long and great for unwinding with a scenic walk while observing the immense wildlife. Along this walk you may stop and grab a sip of water from the handpump well that’s been there since the early seventies. All native NC wildlife are present both on the land and in the water. This is a private lake that houses bass, brim, crappie along with perch and several breeds of catfish. Many deer, turkey, geese and tons of wild ducks often visit, along with the occasional winter swans noted in pictures. Also, documented visits from our bald eagle most recently observed on video trying to snack on a wild duck for supper. He is not alone, as there are osprey that frequent and dine on small fish also. Any given day you can see Cattle Egrets, Great Blue Heron or Great Egrets wading in the shallows. Approximately eighty-acres of woods offer great opportunity for all local wildlife to make themselves at home for your own private refuge or for a hunting tract. Other farm amenities include a (100’x50’) concrete slab that houses a (75’ x 50’) covered metal Mitchell Building. Also included within dimensions is a (25’x50’) insulated shop with a nine-foot garage door and a metal personnel door. Electrical grid supplies standard 110-current and 220-current access for heavy welding. Within the shop there is a (15’ x 25’) loft that supplies storage for just about anything. This amazingly scenic farm offers over fifty acres of fenced Coastal Bermuda hay to raise cattle or to cut and sell hay, along with another additional eleven acres adjacent to barn that also has a (40’ x 40’) pole barn. There are a total of five additional small irrigation ponds on each plot of open land for additional water supply for cattle, horses or separate fish farms.
