1.3 Miles of River Frontage! Old growth hardwoods! Mature Pines! A private pond! 25 acres of pasture land! This incredible property has it all! Call Andrew Walters at 252-904-3184 to schedule a showing today!

167 acres of Riverfront Timber Land and Pasture Land for Sale in Franklin County, NC! This property is located on Julie McKnight Road, which is a rural dead-end road with minimal traffic. The property features a sliver of land that touches Julie McKnight Road and encompasses a shared driveway. The pasture land has gone fallow over the past couple of years but is in the process of being mowed and cleaned up. There's a total of 25 acres of pasture land. There is also a homesite on the property. The older mobile home is in disrepair but there is a septic system in place as well as a private well. This would be a great place for a camper or hunting cabin. 

Located on the Southeastern end of the property is a private 2.5 acre pond. A few wood ducks were seen in the water, and a number of deer and turkey tracks were spotted along the muddy banks. The topography varies throughout the property, creating a gentle roll. On the ridges and tops of the hills there are mature pine trees. Some of these pine trees were planted, others are naturally established. The hardwood trees are along the river. There's also a section of beech and oak trees in the northern section of the property. There's a variety of different hardwood tree species on the property. Most notably are chestnut oak, white oak, water oak, northern red oak and southern red oak. 

There's 1.3 miles of Tar River frontage and it borders the entire western boundary. The northern boundary of the property is bordered by Kings Creek. At the time the photos were taken the water levels were relatively low and you could nearly walk across the majority of the river. Some of the hardwood timber along the banks of the tar river is in the FEMA floodplain, but none of the pasture land is encompassed in the wetland designated area or the FEMA floodplain. 

The hardwood trees near the river is where the majority of the wild turkey sign was spotted such as turkey scratches and roosting trees. There were also plenty of rubs and scrapes from Whitetail deer. There is a trail that takes you to the banks of the river providing easy access to the water. The hardwoods feature an open understory and are easy to walk though. In the northern section of the property there's no need for trails through the hardwoods. An ATV or Side-by-side can easily be driven through the woods down to the river due to the open understory. 

Franklin county land is in high demand. Coupling the fact this property consists of old growth Hardwood bottoms, river frontage, pasture land, and mature pines, there's a strong likelihood this property won't last long. Act now to see this property before it's gone. There aren't many properties available featuring all of the attributes this property possesses. 

From the property you are 15 minutes from Louisburg, 30 minutes from Creedmoor, and 30 minutes from Wake Forest. 

This property is shown by appointment only. The property is closely monitored so no trespassing is allowed. Inquiries are only for serious buyers. Proof of funds or a loan pre-qualification letter is required to be submitted prior to scheduling any showings.
