Country Living At Its Best! A five bedroom home on 120 acres of land over a mile off the highway 45 minutes from Raleigh and…a 100 year old cabin on the pond. Oh Yeah!
Oh Yeah! Country living at its best. This 120 acres of land for sale in Nash County NC is loaded with features. I get asked periodically to try find a tract around 100 acres with a home, water features, a good mix of farm and timber land, some old barns and maybe a cabin on a pond. Good luck on that one, right? Well, here it is. Setting at the end of Simmons Road, which is like a mile long gravel driveway, is a 2700 sqft Cape Cod style home with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Downstairs it has 3 bedrooms, with walk in closets in each, 2 baths, kitchen, dining room, living room and laundry room. Two more bedrooms upstairs, 1 of which is the master suite which includes a soaker tub, shower and double vanity. There’s also a large den upstairs with 9 ft ceilings and crown molding. The flooring is carpet and vinyl down and laminate up. The home was built is 2007.
Looking for a horse farm or equestrian estate? This is it! The tract has been in the owner’s family since the early 1900’s and his grandfather was born and raised there. The farm has 32 acres of income producing cropland which are shown as prime farm land (see attached pdf in Property Documents section). The fields have been in no-till production for over 20 years and the crops have been beans and cotton. The fields are well suited for tobacco which was grown on the tract for many years, sweet potatoes, beans and cotton. The fields are currently being converted to hay production. The remaining 87 acres is forested. The tract was cut over in the 90’s and left to naturally regenerate. The forest stand is composed of mixed pine and hardwoods. Species consist of white oak, red oak, sweetgum, yellow popular, and loblolly pine. The tract is well stocked and growing at a good rate. The oaks are of age that they have begun to produce mast. The soils have a site index of 89 which is very good for the piedmont (see attached pdf in the Property Documents section). The tract has linear wildlife openings/fire lines installed around the perimeter and bisecting the timber stands. These provide great access into and around the property. They make excellent shooting lanes and can be driven on in most any conditions by truck or atv. The deer hunting on the tract is very good with the annual harvest for the family around 10 deer per season. The tract has a very good turkey population with 1-2 gobblers harvested per year with the average weight near 20 pounds. This fabulous property has been extensively managed as to not allow over harvest of either species. The tract has a ¾ acre pond with a good population of bass, blue gill, crappie and catfish. There are additional sites on the tract other ponds could be constructed just by working with the natural drainage and topography. Oh yeah, the cabin overlooking the pond is over 100 years old. It’s got power, a stone fireplace and chimney and a screened porch. This incredibly cool tract really has it all and it’s only 45 minutes from Raleigh! The house is occupied and showings are by appointment only.
