For the outdoor enthusiast, this package has a lot to offer. If not on site, certainly within close proximity. To go along with the structures on the property, the 26 GIS acres offer plenty of elbow room for all kinds of outdoor activities. The property is located in Washington County which is part of the Albemarle Peninsula region of eastern North Carolina. It's on Old Cherry Rd near the town of Creswell, North Carolina. It's just minutes off Hwy 64 which is the main artery between the Outer Banks and Raleigh, with the beaches of Nags Head being under an hour to the east and Raleigh barely 2 hours to the west. There are 3 structures on the property, each with its own character. First, is a 3 bed/1 bath old farmhouse. It is shown as being originally built in 1930 with an effective date of 1970 but is currently undergoing a renovation project. Now is the time to jump in and have some input on the finished product. It's a simple layout with a center hallway and 2 bedrooms, the bathroom and kitchen on the left side of the house and the living room, the 3rd bedroom and a dining room on the right side of the home. My favorite room has to be the addition to the back of the house. At some point the back porch was enclosed and created a room the full width of the rear of the house. I can envision sitting back there reading a book or working on the computer and watching the kids play on the tire swing in the giant pecan tree in the back yard or looking under its vast canopy across the field as the deer come out to browse on tender young soybeans. The renovation so far includes a new metal roof, new siding, new back deck, new interior paint, new windows and doors, new laminate flooring throughout and a new whole house HVAC system. Adjacent to the house is a spacious 25' x 25' ground level wood framed shelter/garage with stained barn doors, new metal roof and new siding. Adjacent to that is another building. It's raised off the ground, has wood floors and has ample room for storage or could make an awesome woodworking shop.  The land is a mix of 16 acres of income producing cultivated farmland with the remaining acreage being seasonally wet timber land. Perfect habitat for hunting ducks in flooded timber. This could be a great little hunting/recreational tract less than an hour from the Outer Banks. Plenty of room for a duck impoundment or sizable food plot for deer hunting or strips of sunflowers for some incredible dove shoots... or all of the above! And when it's not hunting season there is excellent freshwater and saltwater fishing in multiple directions. Quick and easy access to the Lower Roanoke River, the Albemarle Sound, the Scuppernong River, the Alligator River and Lake Phelps. There's well over 130,000 acres of public trust lands within a few minutes drive in multiple directions as well. Pocosin Lakes NWR, Pettigrew State Park, Lantern Acres Game Lands and more...

"National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge provides numerous recreation opportunities to visitors every year, whether driving, boating, biking, or hiking.... Head to the Pungo Unit to see black bear, winter waterfowl, and other wildlife. Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge offers excellent wildlife photography opportunities, especially in early mornings and late afternoons, when wildlife is most active and lighting can be spectacular. Visitors can enjoy wildlife viewing and photography, birding, hunting, fishing, hiking, and biking." "Pettigrew State Park is a North Carolina State Park in Tyrrell and Washington Counties, North Carolina in the United States. It covers 5,951 acres around the shore lines of Lake Phelps (16,600 acres) and the Scuppernong River. The park's developed facilities are south of U.S. Route 64 near Roper and Creswell, North Carolina. Pettigrew State Park is open for year-round recreation, including hiking, camping, fishing, boating and picnicking. Pettigrew State Park is named for Confederate General J. Johnston Pettigrew, who lived in a nearby home. It surrounds Somerset Place, a North Carolina state historic site that includes a restored 1830s plantation house and outbuildings that can be toured, including reconstructed slave quarters."

This is an excellent location with a lot of possibilities, both on site and off.
