The Meadows Mill 849 acres is located in a vibrant area of Lee County in east, central Alabama. It is in the heart of one of the fastest growing areas of the southeast. Nearby Columbus, Georgia has enjoyed positive growth from the recent expansion of the adjacent Ft. Benning Army Base. The Auburn and Opelika metro area is experiencing record growth due to the family friendly reputation of the area along with the numerous activities and job opportunities that are bolstered by the influence of Auburn University.
The Meadows Mill tract has over 3 ½ miles of frontage on the beautiful Halawakee Creek. In the northeastern portion of the property Halawakee Creek settles into the backwaters of Lake Harding on the Chattahoochee River. Remnants of Meadows Mill Covered Bridge and the old grist mill just downstream are still visible in the last whitewater section of the creek before it spills into Lake Harding.
Two Lee County roads run through the tract and several roads and trails provide access deeper into the woods. Several small branches and one larger creek meander across the property. There is a well balanced mix of managed Loblolly Pine Plantations of various ages and Natural Timber stands that contain mature Hardwood and Pine. The variety of timber stands make it possible to manage these assets on a rotation that is beneficial for cash flow as well as hunting and recreational activities.
For the investor, the property could be managed for timber, hunting and recreational improvement while the regional growth makes the possibility for residential development more likely in the foreseeable future. Because of the plentiful county road and Halawakee Creek frontage, smart divisions of the property could find great interest with residential customers.
This is a rare offering with unlimited options and potential. Whether your desire is to purchase a property to enjoy the great outdoors or make a smart investment, this property would allow you to do both without making any compromises.
