The definition of seclusion is "the state of being private and away from other people" BUT in outdoor properties, this would be defined as the remote tract of land known as "Roper Island" in Hyde County, NC. With this property combining a 8,210 acre island with 53 acres of mainland to make up 8,263 acres of remote wilderness. This property is a hunters paradise, but its not for the faint of heart!! This one takes a real man to hunt it, but more than that it takes a true outdoorsman to appreciate how rare a place this truly is. With the capability to hunt hogs, bears, ducks, deer, turkeys, and other species, Roper Island is the Amazon rainforest of the eastern seaboard. Many of the animals that call this property home have never seen humans before and are as wild as WILD can get to be.
Roper Island is surrounded by over 6 miles of water frontage on the Intercoastal waterway on one side and over 17 miles of river frontage on the Alligator River on the other two sides. That is over 23 miles of water frontage to some of the best fishing in the Eastern seaboard at your fingertips.
There is a 53 acre tract of land on the mainland side of the property that would be suitable for a home site and potentially a boat dock to help easily navigate you across the ICW to a boat landing on the island that has a bulkhead to help make loading and unloading easy.
Come see Roper Island, one of the last remaining large acreage and raw hunting tracts in the U.S.
