Have you ever imagined living on your own private secluded island? What would it be like to really do it? Perhaps your dream home would be on the banks of a scenic river surrounded by the peaceful lull of flowing water, undisturbed woodlands and pristine beauty. Well, here's your chance to finally experience your dream. Pace's Mill! 

Perhaps the most exciting opportunity now available at Pace's Mill is the unique, exclusive privacy offered by the 45 acre island which can be subdivided if desired. One of the most enticing sites available, this property contains the potential for two home sites, each with different topography and dramatic panoramic views of the sparkling river and woodlands.

In 1786, Pace's Mill was an early pioneering gristmill built along the scenic Haw River in the heartland of North Carolina and remained in operation until 1924. This was a major trading area in historic times, serving colonists traveling north and south to the county seats of Pittsboro in Chatham County and Hillsborough in Orange County. Today, the quiet charm of the old gristmill's stone foundation as well as the stone dam and old covered bridge footings just below the mill site are still evident. Two hundred year old cart ways can be traced through the forests, and the ruins of the original saw mill and blacksmith's shop are also nearby on the property.

Driving down the completed driveway, meandering along the Haw River you will be greeted with an impressive mixture of mature hardwood trees, abundant native wildflowers, rare wild azaleas, and mountain laurel. Many species of hawks, eagles, ducks, geese, and song birds call the river corridor home. For the fisherman or whitewater enthusiast simply step outside your door to your ready made playground.

Choose your exclusive riverfront property from 95 spectacular acres bordering a one mile stretch of the Haw River. Only four exceptional home sites have been subdivided in Pace's Mill. One lot has been sold and the purchaser's guest house is completed. The three remaining sites consist of a 21+ acre mainland tract with 2/3 mile frontage along the river and includes a truly amazing home site which sits perched high above the riverbank within a stone's throw of the water, offering sweeping views of the 500' wide river as well as a 2+ acre meadow.

This remarkable property is only 15 minutes from downtown Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina campus, and the UNC hospital. All lots have been pre-approved for conventional septic systems allowing for 4 or 5 bedroom homes.
