Fred Bear once wrote, "Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person." What better way to cleanse your soul than catching your breath under the shade of a North Carolina pine or losing it to the sight of a late August sunset from your own private clubhouse deck. If you want to own a stretch of North Carolina that is vastly untouched and see the inner banks the way our settlers did, then welcome to Lukens Island. For the first time in over 15 years, National Land Realty is now offering this stunning 7,500+/- acre tract where the waters of the Neuse River, South River, and the Pamlico Sound meet.
Lukens Island is a large privately held peninsula with over 20 miles of pristine waterfront with vast expanses of marsh and high bluffs for those afternoon sunsets. On Lukens, you have the privacy of living an island life with the comfort and convenience of owning a deeded access and 47 miles of well-drained internal roads. Once you reach the first gate, you drive through 45,000 acres of gorgeous farmland and tall timber leading you to the 16 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 5,400 square foot custom built lodge overlooking the mouth of South River. Some of the amenities include: commercial grade kitchen, large entertainment area concrete boat ramp, hog slat dock, and a boat lift for easy water access.
Enjoy your morning cup of coffee taking in the sunrise and your favorite beverage waving away the sunsets that make eastern NC famous. The facility is powered by two large diesel 65kw from the lodge. There are several large steel buildings on the property to allow for guests or members to store ATVs, tractors, hunting equipment, and many other tools.
There are a multitude food plots spread throughout over the tract, each with its own deer stand and bear proof feeder. Lukens is nestled inside over 50,000 acres of protected land that is not and will not be hunted. Only a handful of individuals have had the opportunity to enjoy this property. There are monstrous deer, trophy bears, diver and puddle ducks, a great wild turkey population, and more small game than a person could ever desire. With world class fishing at your doorstep (tarpon, drum, trout, flounder, striper) and the Atlantic Ocean less than an hour by boat, this property truly offers it all.
One other unique aspect of Lukens is the development potential. With 20 miles of shoreline and high bluffs, this property has been designed to develop 146 10 acre WATERFRONT lots, each capable of supporting waterfront homes and private docks with no zoning, restrictions, or covenants. There is a development plan in place; for more information on this, please contact us directly. Beaufort airport is only 35 minutes from Lukens and can support large private aircraft.
This is the ideal property for the discerning sportsman, corporation looking for a venue for a corporate retreat, a developer looking to create a waterfront community unlike any that has ever been built, or a family looking for the premier hunting property in all of North Carolina with the developable potential for their children in the years to come.
There is no other property in North Carolina like Lukens Island. Lukens Island is in a league of its own and for the first time in 15 years, it can be yours.
