Historic Farmland With Large Pond In Central North Carolina

Description

I love knowing the history of my own farm. Rarely do I come across a property with as much of a connection to local families as this one does. There’s something unique about places such as this that make you want to be its caretaker and steward of its boundaries. This age-old tobacco farm consists of gently rolling terrain that stretches east to west from NC Hwy 119 to Stanfield Road. It contains a scenic +/- 3.22-acre pond, creek bottoms, hard and soft wood timber stands, and approximately eight field areas that total approximately 21.17 acres of potentially tillable fields. Depending on your land goals, the timber stands and tillable acres have the potential to future for its owners. The main focal point of this old farm is its magnificent pond located in the heart of the property. You’ll not only be impressed with its beauty, but also for the wildlife that can be observed from its banks. Deer, waterfowl, birds of prey, fish, reptiles, and other creatures can all be seen here if you’re still and quiet. There are two power-line easements that run east to west thru the property that offer an additional +/- 3.8 acres of open, manageable land. The remainder of the property is predominantly mature hardwood forest with a couple areas of spruce pines. Along the field edges, there are many species of fruit trees, including persimmons, apples and wild plums. These old fields have become superb critter habitat, especially for deer and turkey. Any sportsman will appreciate the hunting & fishing opportunities this property has to offer. Two intermittent creeks are on the property, flowing from south to north, as well as a couple drainage areas. In addition to the land, there are several structures in various states of disrepair; however, a few may offer varied uses if renovated or repaired. Two log tobacco barns are in great shape, and there’s a field house that could easily be made into a bunkhouse, workshop or sportsman’s lodge! A cemetery that dates back into the 1800’s is also found on the property, its historical significance to the area adds to the mystique of this properties. Owner access to land is always an important attribute, and there are two primary entrances to the property: one-off Stanfield Road (ungated), and the other on Highway 119 (gated). In addition, there is approximately 182ft of road frontage on Highway 119, and 774ft of road frontage on Stanfield Road. If you’re looking for that larger tract of land for the country living, a micro-farm or ranch, this property is a “must see!” I invite you to explore the beauty and potential that this parcel has to offer.
