National Land Realty Announces Largest Property Sold: Roper Island

January 3, 2023

National Land Realty is excited to announce that Aaron Sutton, Managing Broker of the North Carolina Office, recently closed a sale on the largest property in National Land Realty history, the 8,263-acre Roper Island! 

Located in Hyde County, NC, roughly 30 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, sits the breathtaking Roper Island. Spanning an unbelievable 8,263 acres, Roper Island is one of the few remaining hunting properties of this size that has been largely untouched by development or human intervention. Accessible only by boat, the term “remote” barely begins to describe the feeling of standing in the middle of what many refer to as the “Amazon of the East Coast.”

Surrounded by nearly 25 miles of water frontage, Roper Island offers unparalleled seclusion and hunting opportunities. This is a true outdoorsman’s tract, home to ravenous 700-pound black bears, wild hogs, deer, turkeys, and a variety of other wildlife. It’s the kind of place an avid hunter goes when looking to test their mettle against the untamed forces of nature. There are many animals on the island that have never even seen or encountered humans before; it’s truly a raw and remarkable place, unlike any other property in the country.

When asked what makes Roper Island so special, Aaron Sutton stated, “It’s 8,000 acres of raw, natural forest. I’ve never worked with any property quite like Roper Island, it is true wilderness. It’s not the right property for everyone, but for the genuine outdoorsman, it is paradise.” Aaron went on to describe the sale of Roper Island; stating, “This was a big achievement, it’s something that I had worked on for a very long time. Finding the right person to purchase a tract of this size was no easy feat, but National Land Realty’s nationwide marketing presence helped me to find a buyer who signed the closing documents without ever setting foot on the island. I’ve sold small tracts and I’ve sold big tracts, but none have been as special to me as Roper Island.”
