ONLINE AUCTION - .49 acre Waterfront Land for Sale on Roanoke Rapids Lake, NC!


Auction Begins Closing 5:00 PM 7/25/24

Located just northwest of Roanoke Rapids, NC in the Gaston Township in northwestern Northampton County, NC, you'll find this secluded +/- .49-acre one of a kind building lot!

 This property is identified as Lot-A (the combination of lots 9-14 on the survey plat) in the Vultare Lakeside subdivision, and as depicted on the county tax card. Altogether, the property being offered is +/- .49-acres in size and consists of an open area for your new lake home. What makes this property special is its location at the end of the state-maintained road and the amount of frontage along the Roanoke Rapids Lake!

 The property has approximately 182ft of frontage along the Dominion Energy shoreline of the Roanoke Rapids Lake. From the property, you'll witness some of the most gorgeous sunsets you could imagine and observe the abundance of wildlife while enjoying this little piece of heaven. Various species of birds, waterfowl, reptiles, and fish call the river area home, including the occasional bald eagle! The water frontage is not on the main channel of the river, providing a cove-like atmosphere free of wake concerns from passing boats.

As a bonus, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commissions, Vultare Access Area is less than a half-mile from the property (773 Old Gaston Rd, Gaston, NC).  It has a small dock, a boat ramp and parking for vehicles and boats trailers.  Although this property doesn't have a dock permit, this public ramp allows you to get your boat into the water for a day of fishing, wildlife viewing and duck hunting when in season!  The water depth is shallow and looks perfect for jon boats, rowboats, kayaks or canoes.  Larger boats may need to access this portion of the river from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commissions, Fifth Street Landing Access Area (1919 W 5th St, Roanoke Rapids, NC) that is approximately 21-minutes from the property; or the Thelma-Roanoke Rapids Lake Access Area (1011 Van Warren Rd, Roanoke Rapids, NC) which is approximately 29-minutes from this property.  Both have larger parking areas and more docks/piers

Public access to Lake Gaston is available at the large Summit Access Area (432 Bluebird Rd, Littleton, NC) and is 34-minutes for this property.  This provides more boating activities for the entire family!
