Albemarle Sound, NC

Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by the Outer Banks, Albemarle real estate is an outdoor lover’s paradise. With over 500 miles of shoreline, the Albemarle Sound is connected to the Chesapeake Bay by Dismal Swamp Canal and is a vital part of the Intracoastal Waterway. Several rivers flow into the Sound, a large and tide-less estuary. These include the Pasquotank and the Perquimans.

Situated on the banks of the Pasquotank River is Elizabeth City, with a modest—but growing—population of 37,000. Alternately known as the “Harbor of Hospitality” and the “Gateway to the Outer Banks,” Elizabeth City was recently ranked by Coastal Living as one of the best places to live on the coast and is a great place to buy Albemarle property. A large part of the city’s appeal is its location, just 45 miles from Hampton Roads, VA and 110 miles from I-95.

Elizabeth City’s recently revitalized waterfront is home to the Museum of the Albemarle, which offers Hands on History presentations of over 400 years of the region’s past. Warm weather brings the city’s annual Tar Wheel Century bike ride, a Wild West rodeo, and a number of outdoor music festivals. Historians will enjoy Elizabeth City’s Historic District walking tours, while wine lovers can take a short trip to the area’s local vineyards for tastings and tours.

Albemarle real estate and Albemarle property is also available across the Pasquotank River in Camden County. Named for Sir Charles Pratt, the Earl of Camden, Camden County is most widely recognized as the southern terminus of the Dismal Swamp Canal. In 1862, Confederate forces successfully thwarted Union efforts to destroy the canal’s locks in the Battle of South Mills. The canal remains active today, offering boaters a unique view of the Great Dismal Swamp’s natural scenery.

Hertford, which lies on the Perquimans River, is another town with a rich local history. As one of the earliest permanent settlements in North Carolina, Hertford is home to several National Register Historic Districts which feature superb Albemarle real estate. The town’s annual Indian Summer Festival, which has drawn visitors to Hertford for the past 35 years, is held every September and has grown to a two-day event featuring a street dance, entertainment, arts & crafts, and plenty of great food. Hertford is also home to the Jimmy “Catfish” Hunter Museum, a popular attraction filled with memorabilia from the National Baseball Hall Of Fame player’s career. The historic S-Bridge, believed to be the last remaining operational swing s-bridge in the nation. For residents interested in the performing arts, Hertford is home to the Carolina Moon Theater, a homespun dinner theater where actors perform locally-written plays based on the history of Perquimans County to a routinely packed house.

Albemarle real estate offers all the charm of small-town living in a coastal setting. If you’re interested in finding Albemarle real estate or Albemarle homes for sale, then contact any of Long & Foster’s real estate offices in northern North Carolina.
