28.84 Acres of Timber and Hunting Land For Sale in Hertford County NC!

Timber, Deer, and Development. You have all 3 at your fingertips on the outskirts of the small southern town of Murfreesboro NC!

28.84 Acres of Hunting and Timberland for Sale in Hertford County NC! Unique investment and recreation opportunity just outside of the bustling town of Murfreesboro NC. This 28-acre property was once part of an extensive farm that was cut into smaller pieces by the county roads and highways that were becoming a necessity as the small town continued to thrive. This property offers nice potential as a small timber investment tract with around 10.4+/- acres enrolled in the CREP program that looks to protect and preserve wildlife and tree habitat. This offers some great hunting opportunities for White-tailed Deer and small game. The property is broken up into 3 separate parts. Each piece has unique potential. From possible residential development to Timber Investment and Hunting, you can use all 3 sections for its own use. The North East section is around 9.5 acres that offers some great wildlife habitat and has some great deer sign to get the blood pumping as deer season is right around the corner here in NC! This 9.5-acre piece as well as the 13.5-acre southern section have the majority of the CREP timber management area, and the remaining acreage can potentially be converted to residential and home site locations. All of the timber on this parcel are nearing maturity for another timber harvest in the upcoming years.

Hertford County is home to Murfreesboro and the bustling Chowan University! This small college town was once just a farming community, but now it is a thriving little town that partners with the university to help students and the community seek to achieve greater things and serve the common good of all. As the Fall rolls around get ready to go watch some Chowan Football as the Hawks seek to have a winning season against their NCAA rivals!

From hunting to land investments, Hertford and Northampton Counties offer great opportunities for wise investors and outdoor enthusiasts. Land is everywhere out here and that means that the wildlife and the timber and cropland are all around you! Time to let that money go to work for you and bring your next trophy or timber income right to your door (or tree stand)!

With the State Game lands all around, the Chowan river, Maherrin River, and the mighty Roanoke River all less than a half hour away, you have easy access to some of the state’s best fishing and hunting! Every spring the large Hickory and American Shad come up stream in these rivers to spawn. This “poor man’s Tarpon” are a ton of fun to catch as they come in anywhere from 1-4lbs! These fish are quickly followed by the highly prized Stripped Bass (Rock Fish). These striped bass are also coming upstream to spawn in the fresh clear water flowing down from the foothills of Virginia.
