The Scott's Bluff tract is an old family farm with unique features that aren't common to many properties in this area of Alabama. A one-hundred-foot elevation change from the high ground on the northern section of the property overlooks pastures and Abbie Creek to the south. This makes for beautiful views and several outstanding places to build a home or cabin that takes in the incredible scenery. Over a mile of Abbie Creek spans the property. On this end of Abbie Creek, it averages 25 yards wide with cool flowing water year-round. It's a 30-minute kayak or canoe trip to the Chattahoochee River from the private launch built into the creek.
There are 40 acres of cultivatable crop land that can leased, farmed, or planted to pine. This area contains priority Gopher Tortoise soils that would likely be a strong candidate for cost-share establishment of longleaf pine. There are 51 acres of woodlands with approximately 20 acres in loblolly pine regeneration. The margins of the tract along the creek are primarily hardwood with a good component of oak and hickory. The remainder is pasture that contains scattered pine and hardwood; in its current condition, portions of the pastures are excellent wildlife habitat. Deer and turkey are abundant on this property.
Located just east of the desirable Haleburg Community, power, water, and friendly neighbors are in place. There are 3,200 feet of paved road frontage along Henry County Road 71. The tract has two ponds primarily used for livestock. Water is run to several locations in the pastures that serve as watering troughs. The property is fenced and cross fenced. Cows have been excluded from the creek with fencing. For an owner with an interest in starting a small cattle operation, this property is turn-key.
The Scott's Bluff tract is a spectacular property with unrivaled natural beauty, great hunting, high recreational value, and significant acreage in crop/pasture lands. While there is much in place to enjoy as is, there is almost unlimited potential to further improve this tract through good land stewardship practices.
