Rare Opportunity To Own Your Own Millpond-Pleasant Hill, NC

4633 Big John Store Rd, Pleasant Hill, NC 27866


This 86 + acre income producing property has great potential for many uses.  Currently it serves as a residence with a beautiful log cabin overlooking the historical Conwell Millpond that was established in 1857.  During the civil war, many skirmishes were fought near this Millpond and in nearby areas.  Earth works are still visible in one area of the property. 

There are two rental units on the property.  One is a home built on the original foundation of the old grist mill.  The other is a home at the other edge of the pond.

Fishing has always been a part of the Millpond.  The old store is still on site where bait and tackle was once sold and a bedroom was rented out to adventurous fishermen that wanted to stay the night!  Fishing memberships are now purchased by a few locals who enjoy catching the brim, speckled perch and bass that are plentiful in the pond. 

Wildlife thrives around the pond also with bear, turkey, geese, deer and ducks routinely beingspotted.  Speaking of ducks, this pond has been known for decades as a great duck hunting location.  Many ducks have been harvested over the years on the back side of the tract.  For a time, waterfowl enthusiasts leased the hunting rights for ducks.

The 86.66 +/- acre property is a combination of four tracts being sold as one: Tract 1 is 14.89 +/- acres and has the 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom log home on it.  The home faces the pond.  You can sit on the large deck and watch the geese fly over and land on the water.  The current owner has named the property “Landing Zone” for just this reason!

Tract 2 is 6.64 +/- acre field adjacent to the residence.

Tract 3 is a 10.94 +/- acre timber tract with a portion of the trees in the CREP program.

Tract 4 is the 54.19 +/- acre tract with the millpond on it.  On this parcel are the two rental homes.  The home built atop the original grist mill foundation is a 1 1/2 story, 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath that has wonderful views of the pond from the living room and a small balcony hanging over the water!  When the gate is opened under the home, you can enjoy the sounds of the rushing water beneath you.  Also under the home is a small area where you can dock a boat.  I’ve been told that on moon lit nights, the view from the balcony is spectacular.  Near the boathouse is a picnic shelter, a nice bridge over the water flowing from under the house and the old bait shop mentioned above.

A short distance away is another rental that offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.  It has a 22 x 27 metalgarage.  The yard for this home also goes right up to the water’s edge.

This amazing and unique property is conveniently located about 3 miles off Hwy 301 and only about 14 miles from I-95.  It could be used for many different purposes. 

For the nature lover that is looking for peace and quiet, solitude and beautiful water views you might not want to change a thing.  From anywhere on the property you can enjoy the sounds of nature and what this pond has to offer!

The property could also be commercially developed.  Some of the ideas mentioned have been a hunting lodge, a wedding venue, a family or company retreat, a small campground, a housing development etc.
