Just a short drive west of Wilmington, between I-40 to the north and US Hwy 117 to the south in the community of Rocky Point, this tract offers a perfect recreational getaway for the outdoorsman with the opportunity for income from mature timber. With access from Strawberry Lane on the southern end and a deeded easement from Lecy Padgett Road on the north, this tract is both secluded and very accessible.
The tract has an abundance of wildlife. Flooded timber to the south, which can be managed, provides an excellent opportunity for waterfowl hunting. Almost 70 acres of mature, open, bottomland hardwoods with an abundance of red and white oaks, are the perfect spot to ambush a mature buck or that wary tom. And if you prefer hunting pine stands, there are 25+ acres of vigorously growing loblolly pines that have been thinned, offering perfect shooting lanes. There are also some small food plots already established in the pine stand and a beautiful creek running the length of the property. Overall, the property is bordered by a recently thinned pine plantation, a fresh clearcut, an interstate, and has agriculture fields in close proximity, making this a prime spot for wildlife.
The pines are ready for a second thinning which could generate some instant income. And the mature hardwoods could be clearcut or selectively harvested at any time to generate income and promote early succession habitat. There are paths around and through the property and with a little work to the main access points, this property will make a fine place for a quick hunt before or after work.
This property has an abundance of recreational opportunities and timber production and is only minutes away from Wilmington. Call our office today to schedule a time to take a look.
