'Wait 'til you see the Blount's Mulberry Hill...so begins an entry in nationally known, best-selling author's, Inglis Fletcher's Lusty Winds for Carolina. This spot, patented as a plantation in 1669, is now eliciting similar accolades from those who stroll its expansive confines three centuries later. Mulberry Hill is situated majestically on the Albemarle Sound and is surrounded by an 18 hole golf course. The National Registry manor house has four levels with an elegant dining room and living room entered into by a grand hall, all with 12' ceilings. A common area, with a fireplace, kitchen, laundry room and office are on the first level and is perfect for dining, as well and relaxation. A terrace is just off this common area and is ideal for dining, as is the porch just above----from both vistas, guests can view the spectacular sunset meeting the Albemarle Sound. An FAA approved airport (Northeastern Regional Airport) is located within a mile and a half from the property. Also nearby are the Outer Banks and Norfolk, just an hour and fifteen minutes. The owners are willing to line up tours, sail boating cruises, flight lessons, fishing trips and golfing packages, if requested. They are both known for their Southern hospitality!
