The Bigwater Farm is a truly unique and impossible to duplicate turnkey recreational property with vast water frontage on the Pamlico Sound and only 2 neighbors for miles and miles either direction. Just South of Lake Mattamuskeet in Hyde County, 359.87 acres calculated by GIS with a 20 acre planted impoundment, several marsh blinds that are walkable from the cabin, 30 acres of high woods with shooting lanes and deer stands and the remainder is marsh and potholes. Pandemic proof cabin on pilings on the water permitted as a “net house” that is 16’X32′ 512 sq ft with a loft and 8′ porches on 2 sides giving it a 960 sq ft footprint. Cabin runs on solar and/or generator, propane, and has a well with a water treatment system. Nice recently built 24’X32′ 768 sq ft raised barn on pilings with a loft located at the entrance to the property. The barn houses the john deere tractor with mower, kawasaki diesel 4 seater mule, trailer, and a kayak that all convey with the purchase. Sellers do not drive full size vehicles on the roads, UTV’s and tractors only. Unprecedented Pamlico Sound views with rip rap at the cabin site. Broker is related to Sellers and this property has been in my family since the 1960’s when my grandfather would come stay in his old airstream camper to get away from the hustle and bustle of Ponzer. In the 1800’s this area was known as the Middletown Anchorage and the charts still reference that. Large wooden sailing ships would moor at the pilings that are still visible from the cabin and they would offload goods onto barges that lead from the cabin all the way to the town of middletown. Mules walking along the bank would tow these barges to and from Middletown. Today the canals could serve as a protected boat basin although dredging may be required in spots. Excellent nature enjoyment location, abundant waterfowl, and GREAT trout and drum fishing right out the front door. Two oyster beds totaling around 10 acres also convey with the property but I have no idea where they are haha!!
