The main house was originally constructed on this peninsula in 1850. Imagine if you had your choice of property in 1850, this is the property you would have chosen. You have your own peninsula for privacy and view. You are looking at a panorama from East to South to West for the beautiful sunsets. Snuggled inside the mouth of Smith Creek, with the NE gales to your back, and protected from the rolling surge that can come down the Neuse River from Pamlico Sound, you can enjoy the fantastic mild weather of coastal North Carolina while largely escaping the wrath of bad weather. This is truly one of the treasured properties in Oriental and the Inner Banks of NC. You have protected and immediate water access to the ICW, the beaches of Beaufort; just drop your lift and fish the Sound or venture out to the Gulf Stream. This peninsula property is 1.34 acres and includes a 3 bedroom, 2 bath main house as well as a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage attached by a covered breezeway. Spectacular views from every room. The property includes a 3 bay garage/workshop/storage building, a boat ramp, dock and boatlift. Core of main house built in 1850, cottage in the 1990s. Sailboat accessible under 45' bridge. When you combine the spectacular location with the charm, history and potential, you'll realize this is a unique, must see property.
