This riverfront farm lies halfway between I-95 and the Atlantic Ocean, 65 miles or so east of Fayetteville. About 95 acres is pastureland, some of it fenced, making it ideal for horses and livestock. There are also three ponds, one that's stocked with fish. You can go duck hunting, and the opportunity even exists to create an organic farm. Plus, the property is move-in ready, offering a recently built, rustic cabin on top of a storage barn. The wood cabin is cozy — a nice way of saying it's the smallest home in our slide show — and includes all wood floors, a wood-burning fireplace and an open floor plan that makes it feel spacious.  Of course, one of the coolest things about this farm is that it includes a bluff overlooking a 90-degree bend on the Northeast Cape Fear River, providing a great view of the water.
