1521 Flying Hawk Road

Access to the American Tobacco Trail

Home on two and a half acres

Normally I don’t post a North Carolina horse property if the farm is not immediately ready for your horse to move right in, however this home has a double garage with large doors and a carport/shed that might be converted to stalls.    The grassy yard could be fenced so there is immediate forage.  You would need to supplement with hay with this little two- acre pasture.  The home itself is three bedrooms with an upstairs bonus room, and it has an office as well.  It is priced under $490,000.

Future Run-in or Stall??

So why am I discussing a property that is not quite ready for your horse?  This  property has access to the American Tobacco Trail. The trail was originally an abandoned railroad, and stretches for 13.5 miles.  The North Carolina Horse Council worked for years with the park system to make this a horse-friendly place to ride.  To get enough help and interest they enlisted the help of biking associations.  Now the established trail has excellent footing for horses and is used by equestrians, bikers, joggers, strollers, and walkers.    If you are up for an early morning, weekday ride, you may go for miles without seeing anyone.  The scenery goes in and out of wooded areas, past houses, across bridges, and past beaver ponds.  It is a lovely place for a leisurely ride.


About A Cain

I am originally from New York State and moved to Pennsylvania for college and graduate school. My husband and I later lived in California and West Virginia, and then we were transferred to North Carolina. I learned to ride as an adult, in North Carolina. I have two horses now: one wild-and-wooly teenager who is learning from me, and one former race horse that has turned into a school master for me. They are both pretty sensible and great on trails, so we go everywhere. They live with me on my own North Carolina mini farm. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch them graze.
