Located in one of the best deer and turkey hunting areas in eastern North Carolina, this is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful large tract of land located on the Roanoke River. With 6,400± feet of frontage on the Roanoke River, you can enjoy fishing for stripers and hunting waterfowl. The two manmade ponds and flooded “swamp ponds” are also great for duck hunting. The 251± acres of fields are made up of highly productive sandy loam soils and generate $16,000 in yearly rental income. The fields are leased for the 2005 season. For those wanting more forestland, both hardwoods and pines could be planted in the fields for a reasonable cost. The fields are surrounded by wooded land, providing excellent wildlife cover and plenty of hunting opportunities for deer and turkeys. Located near the end of a gravel State Road, it is common to see deer, ducks and turkeys when entering the property. Since there are only a few permanent residence along Weeping Mary Road, there is very little traffic. If you enjoy privacy, it’s hard to beat this property - the nearest house is miles away! The timber is a mixture of mature bottomland and upland hardwoods and mature loblolly pine. There are many large oaks as well as soft-hardwood species.
