704 Ac – Henry Co – Abbeville Tract

By September 18, 2015 No Comments

The Abbeville tract is 704 acres in northwest Henry County that features 240 acres of improved pasture and hayfield, 50 acres of planted, two-year old Longleaf pine, and the balance in the Choctawhatchee river bottom.  It has over 3,200 feet of paved road frontage on County Road 81 and is located about six miles northwest of Abbeville, AL. Highlights include:

  • 240 acres in good pasture/hayfield
  • 160 acres in 13 yo old cutover
  • 285 acres in 2 yo cutover (50 acres have been replanted in longleaf)
  • Extensive frontage on paved, County Road 81
  • 2.5 acre pond

This is a great opportunity to acquire 240 acres of good south Alabama pasture along with over 460 acres of recreational land and timber investment potential. The pasture and hayfields run generally north-south along the road on the high ground and are completely accessible. There is a 2.5 acre pond on the tract and plenty of water in the feeder creeks and along the river. The longleaf pine stand is approximately two years old and there is more acreage between the pasture and the bottom that could be planted. The bottom land is wet-natured but has produced good stands of mixed hardwoods in the past and, in time, should do so again. Most of the bottomland hardwoods were harvested two years ago. The 160-acre stand in the northwest was harvested approximately 13 years ago and is in various stages of natural regeneration. Logging roads were built to provide access to the hardwoods providing access to some of the bottomland. The river bottom provides outstanding habitat for wildlife and could be developed to make this an outstanding hunting tract.

Priced at less than $1,300 per acre, this property provides several options for the new owner. The pasture is currently leased for raising cows and growing hay. The transition area between the pasture and the bottom could be growing more pine trees. The bottoms are regenerating hardwoods and already provide excellent deer and turkey hunting habitat. The road frontage allows for the property to be divided and sold in smaller parcels.
