From a well-rounded aspect, this 280 acre offering is truly special and wildly unique in the marketplace. It's located in the River Neck section of Tyrrell county with 1800 feet of frontage at the western end of Soundside Road. The gated entrance to the property is 4.1 miles north of Highway 64 in Columbia North Carolina. Columbia is a small coastal river town on the Albemarle Peninsula and Highway 64 is the main transportation artery between Raleigh, 2.5 hours to the west, and the Outer Banks, 45 minutes to the east. Some other common destinations from this property would be the quaint coastal town of Edenton North Carolina at under 40 minutes and both Chesapeake Virginia and Greenville North Carolina are an hour and a 1/2. At the end of the 750 foot long driveway are 3 structures highlighted by the 1901 farmhouse that was restored by the previous owners. The configuration this cool country abode is 2 bedrooms and one full bathroom upstairs (the septic permit allows for the construction of a third bedroom). Downstairs, you'll find another full bathroom, laundry room, a boot room and a flowing living/dining/kitchen area. The current owners converted a screened-in back porch into a fully enclosed sunroom, which overlooks the 3 duck impoundments. This classic country farmhouse wouldn't be complete without a metal roof and covered front and side porches. The owners are in the process of moving and pictures of the home will be posted once they have finished. At 2048 Sq ft, it's plenty adequate for a full-time residence in the country for a small family, or for an incredibly cool hunting camp or weekend get away. Also on the homesite is an older restored livestock barn and a newer 2 story garage/barn. Both are complete with matching barn doors and provide ample room for tractor/equipment, vehicle, boat, hunting gear and implement storage. This place is a wildlife manager's dream property. With 59 acres of farmland, multiple food plots, bottomland hardwood swamps and mature pine timberland. 33 acres of the farmland have been converted into diked waterfowl impoundments, all 3 of which are serviced by one centrally located well and electric pump. The pines are certainly merchantable but there has been no cruise performed or value established. Although there are ongoing wildlife management practices in place, the full wildlife potential here is far from realized. The current owner and his family have made countless irreplaceable memories on this property since purchasing in 2010. Since that time, the owner has experienced the joy of seeing his sons each harvest their first deer, first duck, first turkey and first bear. There are plenty more of each and it's time for the next owner and the next generation to experience this coastal North Carolina gem. This incredible property is shown by appointment only to qualified buyers.

over 1.7 acres of Sound Front property on a majestic point where the Albemarle Sound meets the mouth of the Scuppernong River! Only 5 miles from the heart of Columbia, and LESS THAN 45 MILES FROM THE OBX! The lot was approved for a 3BR septic system; the permit expired last year, but should be easy to re-permit... also, the inspector alluded to the possibility of increasing the permit to 4BR, albeit a case-by-case basis situation. This sound-front lot has +/- 150 feet of sound frontage; there are some low points and some mature trees between the ideal building spots and the shoreline, so it will likely take a boardwalk from some point on the interior of the lot to the waters edge - this is why the owner has the waterfront property at such a low price for water frontage compared to other recent sales nearby, to offset the potential cost of clearing and permitting for a boardwalk/pier on the front-end. Also, there are 12 more lots - 9 in Phase 2 and 3 in Phase 1 - that are also for sale, and can be combined in numerous ways for a multiple-lot deal. These properties are listed individually & in a few different groupings, however the Owner prefers to sell them together, hence the discounted price for the package as opposed to the sum of the two individual listings. Paved Cul-De-Sac road, sound front common area with pier - all in a quiet community with a likely maximum capacity of around 16 to 18 total homes!

Lot 16 on Legion Court, in Phase 2 of Legion Woods! Only 250 yards +/- from the sound-front common area and pier! A Level Interior Building Lot in Sound Front Community, situated on a scenic point where the Mouth of the Scuppernong River meets the Albemarle Sound! Legion Woods is only 5 miles from the heart of Columbia, and LESS THAN 45 MILES from the OBX with a fast & easy commute to and from! One quiet paved road with cul-de-sac! Partly-wooded, with a clearing that was done a few years ago, for a potential building site; 0.4-acre and level. Approved permit for a 3BR septic system (permit expired in 2023). County water & underground electric available! *Lots 14, 15 & 17 (the lots on either side of this one, as well as the lot on the other side of 15) are also for sale, and total over an acre and a half together; these 4 lots could be bought together as a package deal for only $99k! **Nine more lots are also for sale-2 of which are sound-front... 3 of them are on the next road over (Legion Beach Road), in Phase 1 of Legion Woods, and the remaining lots are on Legion Court; they are different sizes, different prices... these lots are all listed individually - however, there are multi-lot groupings listed together at discounted prices compared to the sum of the individual lots' listed prices... or you can purchase all 13 (or however many are still available) at a considerable discount!**

Fantastic opportunity for a developer! 12 lots total (although lots 20 & 21 are being sold together, and Lot 26 is currently attached to lot 28 for its septic easement, and therefore are also being sold together) which have been approved for 10 septic systems (permits expired last year, but county has been very cooperative about re-permitting) and 10 build sites! These lots are also listed and available for sale individually, but can be bought at OVER $100k BELOW the total of each lot's individual list price! Over 10 total acres in phases I and II of Legion Woods, with nearly 5 acres of sound frontage! Community piers and waterfront common areas in each phase! Paved roads, county water, and electric! Soundfront Lots 25 & 26 (2 total, 3.2 acres and 1.73 acres each) are both in Phase Two, and are contiguous! Lot 26 currently has lot 28 as a septic easement lot, but if 25 & 26 were to be sold or built upon as one large tract, lot 28 could then be freed up for its own build site, so there are options! Flood Zones X, shaded X, and AE. Lots are mostly wooded, but level - and the build sites were cleared approximately 3 to 4 years ago, so they are closer to "builder-ready" than raw wooded land. Phase I has 2 lots (lots 2 & 4) with minimal restrictions. Phase II has the remaining 10 lots. Covenants & Restrictions are recorded, and specify 1200sf minimum, underground utilities, no trailers; however to my knowledge there is no active governing association, yet the covenants are recorded.

over 3.5 acres of Sound Front property on a majestic point where the Albemarle Sound meets the mouth of the Scuppernong River! Only 5 miles from the heart of Columbia, and LESS THAN 45 MILES FROM THE OBX! This property comprises of one large sound-front parcel (lot 26, which is 3.2 acres) and Lot 28-which is two down from lot 26 (separated by lot 27)-is combined by deed with lot 26 as a septic easement lot. If one were to purchase the combination of lots 25 & 26 together, they could then separate lot 28 from lot 26 and either keep & build on it, or sell it as an independent building lot. The two lots (26/28) were approved together for a 3BR septic system; the permit expired last year, but should be easy to re-permit... also, the inspector alluded to the possibility of increasing the permit to 4BR, albeit a case-by-case basis situation. The sound-front lot has over 100 feet of sound frontage; there are some low points and some mature trees between the ideal building spots and the shoreline, so it will likely take a boardwalk from some point on the interior of the lot to the waters edge - this is why the owner has the waterfront property at such a low price for water frontage compared to other recent sales nearby, to offset the potential cost of clearing and permitting for a boardwalk/pier on the front-end. Also, there are 10 more lots, 7 in Phase 2 and 3 in Phase 1, that are for sale, and can be combined in any way for a package lot deal. The properties are also listed individually, however the Owner prefers to sell them together, hence the discounted price for the package as opposed to the sum of the two individual listings. Paved Cul-De-Sac road, sound front common area with pier - all in a quiet commubnity with a liikely maximum capacity of around 18 total homes!

Nearly 5 acres of Sound Front property on a majestic point where the Albemarle Sound meets the mouth of the Scuppernong River! Only 5 miles from the heart of Columbia, and LESS THAN 45 MILES FROM THE OBX! This property comprises of two large sound-front parcels (lot 25, 1.73a cres and lot 26, 3.2 acres) which are side-by-side. If one were to purchase both tracts, they would combine to total almost 5 acres with a generous amount of high ground for both a build site and a septic system/drainfield, wooded privacy on both sides, and a scenic natural habitat between the back yard and the water's edge, laden with majestic pine trees and aromatic cypress knees, which also doubles as a protective buffer from the occasional high winds and high waters from offshore storms... a raised boardwalk through this, transitioning to a pier & dock as it extends beyond the shoreline, would complete a veritable natural nirvana, bordered by over 200 feet of waterfront shoreline on the Albemarle Sound! Lot 25 was approved for a 3BR septic system (expired last year); the inspector was receptive to the possibility of increasing the permit to 4BRs (though it remains a case-by-case situation until it is requested and can be formally reassessed), however the additional 3-plus acres on Lot 26 should further accommodate re-permitting and/or increasing the permit to accommodate additional bedrooms. Each of the two sound-front lots has over 100 feet of sound frontage; there are some low points and some mature trees between the ideal building spots and the shoreline, so it will likely take a boardwalk from some point on the interior of the lot to the waters edge - which is why the owner priced this waterfront acreage below the recent sales prices & active asking prices of other nearby waterfront properties - to help absorb some of the potential cost for permitting & building a boardwalk/pier. These two properties are also listed individually @ $80k each, however the Owner would prefer selling them together, hence the discounted price for the package deal. There are 10 more lots - 7 in Phase 2 and 3 in Phase 1 - for sale, which can be combined in any way for a multi-lot deal. Paved Cul-De-Sac road, sound front common area with pier - all in a quiet community with 15 to 18 total homes, once development is complete.

Lot 15 on Legion Court, in Phase 2 of Legion Woods! Only 300 yards +/- from the sound-front common area and pier!

Legion Woods is only 5 miles from the heart of Columbia, and LESS THAN 45 MILES from the OBX with a fast & easy commute to and from! One quiet paved road with cul-de-sac!

Quaint Sound Front Residential Neighborhood! Less than 45 Miles to the OBX! Less than 5 miles from downtown Columbia, on a spectacular point where the Albemarle Sound meets the Scuppernong River! One Road (paved w/ Cul De Sac), 19 total houses maximum, only 2 built as of 1/2024. 1200sf minimum. Waterfront Common area w/ Pier! 2 of the 10 lots are "double lots" as they were both permitted for septic as two lots together ( lots 20 & 21 and lots 26 & 28). The other 6 lots were each permitted individually for septic. 8 approved septic permits, each for a 3BR house; permits expired last year, but the County Health Inspector has been cooperative about re-permitting, and is open to increasing permits to 4BRs (will be a case-by-case decision, but he seemed to think that most of the lots would accommodate a 4BR septic permit). The lots all have frontage on Legion Court, are all level, and all have access to county water & underground electric. Lots 25 and 26 are sound-front, each with approximately 100 feet-plus on the ALBEMARLE SOUND! Lots 14 to 17 are all contiguous, .4 to .45 acres each, and were all permitted for septic systems. Lots 20 & 21 were permitted together for a 3BR septic system (likely able to re-permit for a larger system if desired), and road frontage stretches around most of the right half of the cul de sac! This double lot totals 1.54 acres, and is directly across the cul de sac from the Sound, and the common area & pier! This one is a gem, and should offer nice sound views! Lot 25 is Sound Front, 1.73 acres, and fronts Legion Court on the bottom left of the Cul De Sac. Lot 26 is also Sound Front, 3.2 acres, and is adjacent to Lot 25... together these two lots could offer almost 5 acres of sound front living, and over 200 feet of water frontage! Lot 28 is two lots down from 26, but is currently deeded to convey with Lot 26, with a septic easement through lot 27... BUT if 25 and 26 were to convey together, that would leave Lot 28 to potentially be disconnected from Lot 26, to be a .41 acre building lot, which backs up to beautiful farmland. Lot 29 is .44 acres, lightly wooded, and backs up to the farmland. These lots are also for sale individually, as well as together with three more lots in the adjacent Phase 1 of Legion Woods (on Legion Beach Rd - 3 interior lots approximately .4 acre each); the Seller prefers to sell these lots together, and therefore is listing the grouping of lots at a deeply-discounted total price compared to the sum of each individual lot price. Call the Listing Broker for more details, interest in specific groupings of lots, and for answers to any questions!
