This is a rare opportunity in this solid 150-Acre investment/family tract of land in the heart of one of the south's preferred counties for deer, ducks, and turkey hunting. This very desirable farm in Barbour County Alabama claims many strong attributes. There is plenty of frontage on a large creek with access from an excellent road system on the property. There are three openings for planting wildlife food plots with plenty of room for more. To add to the diversity there are also 49 acres of 9-year-old longleaf pines. These pines were burned earlier this year and seem to be healthy overall. There is plenty of great creek frontage without much flood zone. Actually, an unbelievable amount of only 10% of the property resides in a flood zone. There are about 92 acres of mixed hardwoods some of which are mature big oaks. In the NE hardwood bottom, there is a great running stream with rolling topography. There is an old pond that is approximately 2-3 acres in size. The dam of this old pond is massive and still acts as a good road to cross the hardwood bottom that once was a fishing pond. This pond could be rehabilitated for a fraction of what building a new fishing pond or a floodable duck pond would cost. There is more than one access to the 1,600 feet of creek frontage on Lindsey Creek. This year-round running creek seems to average about 20-30 feet in width. It is just small enough that no one should be floating down from upstream past your property. It runs into the larger West Fork Choctawhatchee River which is about one-half of a mile downstream. The remaining 9 acres are food plots, internal roads, and the old pond.
This property has several other things going for it such as the overall topography lends itself to farmable ground. The pines have been planted in old fields that could be inexpensively converted into back into pastures or row-crop land. Electricity can come up from the 131 road frontage which lies to the south through a utility easement granted by the current owners. The pines are not in a program of any kind to hinder your future plans. Lake Eufaula is only 23 miles to the boat ramp.
Barbour County has always been known for its deer hunting and this property is a good example of just that. There is a large hardwood swamp between the northern agriculture and this property making it even more dynamic from a deer hunting perspective. Additional acreage is available.
There are good roads that travel through the property with a new gated entrance. There is a good internal road system. Along County Road 41 there are 1800 feet of paved road frontage.
Location: This property is 5 miles north of Blue Springs, 19 miles north of Ariton, 19.5 miles west of Abbeville, and 23 miles west of a Lake Eufaula boat ramp.
