This New Bern family homestead is now available for the first time in more than a century. If privacy and seclusion are top of your list, you don't want to miss this sprawling 51-acre mixed-use property, now available on the outskirts of New Bern. Tucked away almost half a mile off the road, this hidden gem promises the ultimate in privacy and seclusion for those who crave a tranquil retreat with boundless potential for expansion and recreation.

Miles of well-maintained trails transverse the property offering opportunities for ATV or horseback riding.

For decades, this land has been a haven for hunters, who meticulously maintained the property for just that; making it a true outdoorsman's paradise.

The property features a mix of hardwoods and pine, with well-defined transitions and is a literal stone throw from the Upper Broad Creek.

Approximately 21 acres of planted pines were previously enrolled in a Conservation Reserve Program, adding both ecological diversity and potential income opportunities. While the exact location of a historical homesite from the early 20th century remains a mystery, the potential for creating your own dream home is undeniable.

Many signs of deer, turkey, and bear were observed while walking the property. If you're considering building your dream home, rest assured that soil evaluation for well and septic systems is currently underway and expected to be completed in just two to three weeks.

Though the property is remote, it's just minutes away from historic downtown New Bern, as well as the towns of Bridgeton and Grantsboro. Even being very close to the creek, only a small portion of the property falls within a designated flood zone, ensuring peace of mind for your investment. Furthermore, minimal wetlands are found at the rear of the property, leaving ample room for your vision to take shape.

Call our office to schedule your showing.

*All showings must have agent accompaniment and must schedule.*
