This could be an amazing opportunity for the right individual or even a group of individuals. I have for sale or even possible trade an amazing 11 acre Island nestled in a calm protected corner of the Bogue Sound. It a small slice of paradise protected by the pristine beaches of Emerald Isle, NC.
What's an island going to cost me?
We are asking for $149,000 or we would consider a possible real estate deed swap ( we can also bring "cash to the table" if your property is worth more - will consider properties worth up to $250,000 ) We are looking for a few acres preferably in or towards the NC or VA mountains. No HOA. Foothill or Country land is also OK. Would really like a source of water on the property, ( Island life really gets in your blood :) can be a stream creek river pond or lake - we would consider digging one for the perfect property but would need no regulations. We would like some sort of dwelling / structure / house / cabin to already be existing on the property. Preference is also given to unrestricted land & to land with existing income / business potential.
About the Island.
This Island is a fairly "safe" island as far as islands go. The Island is tucked in a well protected corner of the Bogue Sound. Its Less than a 5 minute / 1 mile boat ride from the town ramp across prime saltwater trophy fishing waters. Nothing fancy is needed to reach the shores of the island, a bass or john boat will do. Even kayak or canoe & enjoy the dolphins jumping & the amazing views.
If needed I can provide a Jon boat to go with the Island.
The title and deed are for 11 acres however only about 6 acres above sea level. ( You would actually be one of the only people in the county to own private submerged land deeded by King George the 3rd, potential aquafarming business?) The island is a natural island & has not changed in shape or size as far back as we can date the deed ( 1776) The island is surrounded by shallows, abundant with several acres of natural oysters, clams & scallops. We catch Drum, Flounder, Sea Trout, Skate, Blue Crap & Shrimp right from the shore. Dolphins and a vast array of Egrets, Pelicans and waterfowl are the most frequent visitors. Bald Eagles nest every year in a tree directly across from our shores.
We have an easy shell path throughout the island.
A clearing is raised in the grove of old live oak trees where we keep an enormous 24ft yurt tent set up.
Taxes are a wonderful $5.00 a year! ( aprox as this can vary a slight bit. Mine last year was $4.81 )
Intercoastal Waterway less than a quarter mile away from the Island.
Island is unzoned & unrestricted.
There is a houseboat "beached" on the Island that we use for a cabin. This would be included. Houseboat does need a bit of work but is solid.
Night and Evenings are beyond amazing! The stars shine with a brilliance that's hard to find on Land.
The island is next to the bouge auxillary airfield. The do fly directly over one corner of the island. Since it is an auxillary airfield they rarely fly. These aren't your normal planes, it bomber & jets & some awkward looking thing. When they do Its actually really awesome & to watch! ( I thought I would hate it when I bought the property but once I saw them fly I was hooked & now I pull up a chair)
Yes hunting is allowed. People have offered me several hundreds of dollars just to hunt waterfowl. Apparently its prime duck hunting grounds.
Stores are nearby, just 3 blocks from the boat ramp you have gas stations, restaurants, grocery, doctors & more.
Island also comes with its own "baby" island. hardware boat storage & more.
It is an absolutely amazing property, and a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Island would make a perfect vacation rental property when your not using it. Or even a wedding , fishing kayaking or camping destination!
Yes this is real.
Yes it is a real island. Yes you own the whole island.
Yes a boat / kayak or canoe is needed to get there - we usually just use flat bottom Jon boat I have the paperwork and documentation if needed.
If your interested in possibly trading, We will also consider trading for a mountain or foothill property with a home or cabin towards the NC or VA mountains. We would want at least a few acres of land, with some sort of water on it ( creek, stream, pond, river ) For the right property we would also be willing to pay the difference in price if applicable. We are open to ideas, please feel free to send all offers. The worst that could happen is we say no.
