Nolin Lake and Farm features a 26-acre lake, mature hardwoods, open fields, fishponds, pristine Cypress Brakes, and naturally regenerating timber.  The diversity of the tract offers something for everyone, you can farm, raise livestock, fish, hunt, plant trees, or any combination thereof.  Build your home on the banks of the lake and enjoy a birds-eye view of waterfowl and other wildlife from your porch.  Or you might choose to build under one of the century-old oaks near the ponds and really enjoy the peace and quiet of the south Alabama countryside.  This tract was part of a much larger homestead and has been in the same family for well over a hundred years.  Located 10 miles from the Boll Weevil Circle (Hwy 84 Bypass) in Enterprise, Nolin Lake and Farm is surrounded by timber tracts and farmland.  It has over 1,400 feet of paved road frontage on Hwy 167 with multiple access points.  Power and water are already on site and internal trails provide easy access throughout the tract.     

Nolin Lake and Farm is a blank slate ready for you to make your vision a reality.  The terrain is level to gently rolling with some steeper terrain in the east and is primarily comprised of Sandy Loam soil which is perfect for growing crops, Loblolly or Longleaf pines, or premium grasses for your livestock.  Over 40 acres of naturally regenerating timber could be left as is, replanted in Longleaf or Loblolly pines, or converted to pasture or farmland.  There are over 40 acres of mixed hardwoods and pines on the east providing exceptional habitat for the deer and turkey.  Deer were bedding in the open field next to the hardwoods when we were taking photos!

The lake has been home to a wide variety of waterfowl for many decades.  Shallow by original design, it is fed from a natural spring beginning a half-mile north of the tract.  The north side of the lake is bordered by dense stands of native cypress trees and mature hardwoods providing excellent cover and ideal nesting sites for both resident and transitory geese and ducks.   A well-established dam on the south side, and a levee around the east side, provide easy access to the lake and the remainder of the property.  Many years ago, before the east levee was built, the lake encompassed an additional 20 +/- acres on the east.  Those acres are now a mix of shallow ponds, open fields, and scattered hardwoods, adding diversity to the landscape while providing ample room for rutting bucks to chase, and spring toms to strut.

In addition to the lake, several well-established ponds provide eight acres of surface water.  The ponds were originally used to grow catfish and the locals remember the days when you could “pay by the pound” for the catfish you could catch.  Those days are now past, and the ponds have been exclusively private for well over a decade allowing healthy populations of Bass and Bream to be established.  There is a pole barn near the ponds and another barn on the east side of the lake for equipment storage with power on site. 

There are three separate sections of road frontage that allow easy access to the tract.  With open fields and numerous build sites, you will find plenty of room to create your vision for the property.  You have ample space to grow some crops, graze your livestock, have a large garden, raising animals, or whatever your heart desires.  Mature, fruit-bearing persimmon and pear trees along with a producing muscadine trellis are already waiting for you.  There is an RV pad, with power and septic on site, that could be used while you build, and beyond.

Nolin Lake and Farm offers unlimited opportunities to create a special place that will produce memories for generations.  As a bonus, the beautiful Florida Gulf Coast beaches are less than two hours away.  Schedule your appointment today!

Notes:  Nolin Lake and Nolin Farm are also listed for sale as separate tracts.  And, if you are looking for more acreage there are 104 adjoining acres to the north, very similar in features (with two more fishponds), that are also available for purchase.
