    Description

    An acre and a half inside the city surrounded by water and marsh on three sides is a very rare offering indeed. Sunrises, sunsets, water birds, butterflies and shade trees are daily fare when you live here in this ecosystem of your own. Explore the North City neighborhood by water in a Carolina Skiff, kayak or canoe and follow the tides from Robinson Creek out to Tolomato River. The stilt home was built to capture all the views and it's reminiscent of a lodge you'd find nestled in the woods. There's ample covered parking under the house so former detached garage is now a studio with 3/4 bath and there are a couple of small outbuildings and play areas for kids. Consider the possibilities with a property this size: subdividing into 2 lots, both with water/marsh frontage; creating a family compound on the 2 lots; selling 1 and keeping the other; enjoying it just as it is; or holding onto the entire piece in order to create a new residence for this singular piece of land. For those interested in subdividing, there's a team working on site design and we're happy to share the information. If you desire to occupy the full 1.5 acre and create your own oasis, turn loose your imagination, see where it leads and use the tree-house as your base while you oversee the project. Acreage in the city is hard enough to find but when it comes with expansive vistas, marsh views and access to usable water for small boats, kayaks and fishing, rare is the proper word to describe this magical place. A highly desirable neighborhood on the north end of the city with a flourishing coffee and wine bar offering live music, a food truck that beats most fine dining and a dessert lover's paradise - all within walking distance. Major roadways for access out of town are close by and you can make a joyful noise downtown and then retire to the porch and listen to the crickets sing.
