Located on a paved county road in Covington County near the small town of Opp, this is a near turnkey property that must be seen to appreciate. If you have been looking for a homestead or just a nice getaway, you need to see the Poley Creek tract!


Key property features: 


  • 1,672 sq ft farmhouse 
  • Poley creek
  • Multi-use open fields
  • Over 1,000’ of paved road frontage 


Acreage breakdown:


  • 6 +/- acres of hay field (excellent condition)
  • 7 +/- acres farmland (freshly mowed open field)
  • 2 +/- acre homesite 
  • 29 +/- acre mature hardwood and pine timberland


The Home:  Built in 1973, this 1,672 sq ft, 3B/3BA home has not been renovated but is very much in livable condition. You can move in immediately then update and upgrade as your budget allows.  The home tucked back over 500 ft off the road, secluded, but in a perfect location to enjoy all the beautiful scenery the yard and the farm offer. A wide variety of Azaleas (including a rare yellow Azalea), several huge oak trees, a majestic sycamore, and a well-manicured lawn make this homesite unique.  The home’s features include a large front porch, two-car carport, back deck, fireplace, and a full basement. The 1,672 sq ft is utilized well and has a nice flow throughout. Entering through the front you will see a large living room that adjoins the dining area.  The kitchen and laundry area are modest in the style of the times, but functional.  The three bedrooms and bathrooms are accessed down the long hallway. The unfinished basement provides ample space for storage and includes an old wood-burning fireplace that was used in years past. 


Open Fields:  The two fields are separated by thick woods and provide any number of opportunities for future use. The seven-acre field in the front has been used for hay production for many years. You can continue to grow hay, convert it to farmland, have a large garden, fence it for livestock, or plant it in trees for even more privacy.  You might choose that location to build your forever home. The topography is level to gently rolling with most of the elevation changes occurring around the creek and hardwood drains. The southern field is surrounded by big woods and offers the same opportunities as the other field.  It can be accessed from the homesite by a walking trail through the woods or by vehicle near the west boundary line.  


The Creek and the Woods:  Poley Creek is a beautiful, year-round creek that flows through the southeast corner of the property for over 450 feet! The creek is easily accessed from behind the home or from the corner of the south field. On my walk down to Poley Creek, I saw several native Azalea flowers that were in full bloom. The hardwoods that run along Poley Creek are as good as it gets. Mature white oaks and other mast bearing trees can be found all throughout this area of the farm. There are several areas where the hardwoods open up, letting sunlight reach the understory. This feature provides great habitat allowing native forage to grow abundantly and offering an excellent food source and bedding areas for all species of wildlife. There is plenty of signs (and sightings) of whitetail deer and wild turkeys on the Poley Creek Tract. 


Poley Creek tract is a must-see tract. The recreational possibilities include ATV riding, hunting, horseback riding, and searching for native American artifacts. Don’t wait to see this farm - affordable properties with these features don’t last long in this market.
