Accessed by a 1.5 mile deeded easement off of a paved county road this beautiful property is both secluded and quiet. You will not hear the sounds of traffic here. This unique tract has over a mile of frontage on Jack’s Creek, one of the most picturesque creeks in Alabama. This beautiful, pristine, water feature has numerous waterfalls and unique rock formations. This property was once home to a grist mill that was in operation until it burned down just prior to World War 1. The property also had a thriving cotton gin on it that ceased operations sometime after the grist mill burned. The vestiges of these 19th-century structures, as well as the stone dam and 1/4 mile flume providing water and power for these operations are still visible on the property today.
A couple of years ago approximately 532 acres was clear-cut. In January 2018 this acreage was replanted in third generation genetically improved loblolly pine. The seedlings look extremely healthy and the survival rate appears to be excellent. The remaining 256 acres is comprised of 170 acres of uncut mature hardwood and pine. The owner has conservatively estimated the remaining timber value at $1,500/acre. There is also 86 acres of SMZ’s that are loaded with mature hardwoods. The cover provided by the up and coming pine plantation combined with the food produced by the hardwoods in the SMZ’s makes for the perfect hunting spot. Another benefit to having some of the timber cut is that now the views have been opened up and in places, you can see for miles. While there are some game plots on the property you now have a blank canvas and you can easily add to and/or enlarge the existing plots. There are also numerous lake sites scattered throughout this tract.
When you take into consideration the excellent hunting, spectacular creek, rich history, and income potential from this property, the results are a property that you must see. To schedule a tour please call me, Eric Leisy, 1-334-657-6707.
