39 ACRES FOR SALE: Wild Goose Chase, 39.12 Acres of Great Waterways and Hunting Land!! Franklin County NC. Owner-financing possible.

Two actual tracts for sale: one of which has a homesite cleared, overlooking the huge, gorgeous waterway. That one is 27 acres. The other is 12 acres and extends further up the hill. Both have perk sites and both have access to the waterway. The first is $89,990 and the second is $49,990. Owner financing is an option.

These tracts are perfect for a couple of "outdoor" friends looking to live in proximity to each other, yet have privacy and their own unique land. The tracts are served by a private, gated right of way that the owners share with each other. The parcels could easily be fenced for horses and other animals. Plenty of water... that's for sure!!

The first thing you see when you turn off the highway is a secure red gate with a quaint path leading through the trees behind it. About 600 feet into the land, you’ll come to a meadow with a lovely cabin on the hill to your left, and a cute little dock on the right.

The cabin sold recently to a very nice, quiet couple who take immaculate care of the place. (The original tract was about 43 acres.) Continuing down the graveled, forest lane you will go up and down a few small hills as you pass through the two tracts being offered.

The first home site is already cleared and overlooks the magnificent waterway. It has grown up some along the water's edge but it is still a stunning sight for folks who like water, ducks and nature.

I always envisioned a home on stilts, high up and overlooking the vast waterway. Then you could park cars, boats, and four-wheelers under it and make that the storage area.

The second house site is further up the big hill that forms the backbone of the property. A dry-weather road is in place in this location and makes for a lovely walk through nature. All the woods on the property are mature or close to mature. There is no short, scrubby cut-over.

Everyday you can enjoy the sun as it passes across the waterway. You’ll be spying eagles, hawks, loons, ducks, geese, beavers, foxes, turkeys, deer and plenty of fish. (Check out the picture of the bass we caught on our first fishing trip out there! And guess what; no alligators or armadillos.)

The land was surveyed few years ago with a small road built through it. You can find your way around very easily. The 2 tracts could be re-formatted so that the acreages would be more equal, but 2 tracts are all you’ll be able to end up with in the end, due to county and state regulations. There are no covenants on the land, but the owners will need to maintain the driveway (just as they would if there were only one tract out there).

Close to town. Only 15 minutes from Louisburg, 40 minutes from Raleigh, and just barely an hour from RDU International Airport. Private, fenced, off the road, quiet, water all the way down one side and along the back. Already divided into 3 tracts, approved by the county. (The first tract is the one with the home that sold.)

This is truly an unbelievable place. It might be your last chance at a Wild Goose Chase……!
