A one of a kind opportunity to own 3.4 acres of true waterfront property, and a gorgeous historic home, fully restored and renovated in 2008. Now equipped with all of the modern-day conveniences to satisfy any luxury home seeking buyer, the original home is The Joseph Swindel House, one of the few Hyde county plantation houses located on Lake Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge. The original structure, estimated to be constructed in 1820 has a craftsman style addition with an open floor plan providing stunning views of the waterfront and surrounding property. Outfitted with reclaimed tobacco-barn heart pine boards and cypress bead board ceilings, the addition is seamless and is finished off with a wide screened in porch overlooking the lake, plus 4 working wood burning fireplaces!
The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a custom island made from the original heart pine floor joists, reclaimed wood countertops, and custom cabinets.
Large Laundry/Mudroom with full bath located off kitchen on first floor. Master Bedroom suite and 2 additional guest bedrooms with 2 full baths located on 2nd level. All bathrooms have custom-made vanities with antique furniture pieces.
The grounds are full of mature landscaping, garden spaces, a fruit orchard, and a picturesque brick walkway, made from the reclaimed bricks of the original chimneys. Two renovated outbuildings include an outdoor studio/office and a barn outfitted with decoy shelves and covered bays to accommodate boats, UTVs, and other equipment.
Just a little over an hour to the beautiful Outer Banks, Historic Edenton and Washington, NC. Only a 15 minute drive to catch the ferry to Ocracoke at Swan Quarter.
The possibilities here are endless for either a primary residence, hunting lodge, B&B, corporate retreat, or 2nd/investment home. Escape from the noise of the big city and crowded beaches! Enjoy the waterfowl, surrounding nature and all of the tranquility that this property has to offer.
With a rare inholding of 1 acre of lake bottom, this waterfront retreat allows for spectacular hunting, fishing, and water recreational activities.
