Wow, what a view! This waterfront home on over 11 acres of property for sale on the Little Alligator River in Tyrrell County NC is truly one-of-a-kind. It's located just north of US Hwy 64 only about 30 minutes from the beaches and amenities of the Outer Banks. The home, the outbuildings and the landscaping are unbelievably well maintained.
Sitting 800 feet down a private gravel drive off of Old Highway 64 is this cedar-shake home overlooking the river. Once you pass through the split rail fencing at the entrance you'll drive by the pond where you'll spend countless evenings relaxing with fly rod in hand catching bream and largemouth bass. The exterior of the house features 10ft wide decks all the way around with two covered screened porches perfect for weekend BBQs or for just curling up in a comfortable chair with your favorite book enjoying the afternoon breeze. Inside, the custom home builder's attention to detail is quite evident.
There are three bedrooms, one of which is being used as an office/study and two full baths, one with a walk-in glass block shower. If you like spending time in the kitchen you will greatly appreciate its roominess, functionality and cabinet space. The large island in the center of the kitchen has plenty of storage space and seating for four. There's also a separate mirrored wet bar area with its own sink.
When it's time to bring the groceries up you'll have the option of utilizing the covered exterior lift(elevator). The flooring consists of ceramic tile, hardwood and carpet. You will be in awe of the view available through the 28 windows in the dining/family room. Whether it is witnessing stunning sun rises in the East or the power of approaching storms from the northwest this is sure to be your favorite room in the house, especially in the winter with the wood burning fireplace.
There are 550 shoreline feet of frontage on the water and you can see all of it from the dining room table. There are two fully functional outbuildings on the property. The first is a guest house attached to a garage/workshop. The guest house has a water view and features a deck, heat and air and a full bath.
The barn is two stories, it's cypress sided and provides plenty of storage. From blueberries to asparagus and from native shrubs and wildflowers to established heirloom plants there seems to be something either edible or blooming for most of the year here. From the base of the house there's a 165ft raised walkway and pier leading to a 12ft by 24ft covered boat house with electric lift and a 16ft by 17ft dock with a fish cleaning table and power and water. The Little Alligator River is one of those interesting eastern North Carolina fisheries that can produce 6 - 10 species of fish on any given day.
You may have guys chasing freshwater species like bream or bass or yellow perch fishing in sight of others chasing saltwater species like speckled trout and redfish. The good thing is you'll have plenty of options.
