Somerset Farm is a multi-use property inside the city limits of Geneva that features planted pine plantations, hay fields, mixed hardwoods, and a natural spring on site!  With paved road frontage on Hwy 27 and on South Ward Street, this 50-acre tract has multiple points of access with power and city water available.  If you are looking to build a nice home with that “in the country” feel, raise some livestock, grow some crops, watch deer and turkey, ride horses or ATVs, all while enjoying the conveniences of living in town, you need to see Somerset Farm. 

The terrain is level to gently rolling providing any number of options to build your home, barn, and other outbuildings.  The sandy loam soil, typical for the area, is excellent for growing hay, cotton, peanuts, and corn.  Approximately 16 acres of the tract are in merchantable Loblolly pines.  These trees have been thinned and are continuing to grow toward maturity.  There are about seven acres currently in hay production that could be fenced for livestock, converted to farmland, or planted in more trees.  The remainder of the tract features a wide variety of naturally regenerating timber and brush creating the ideal habitat for deer, turkey, and other native wildlife.  One very special feature is a natural spring in a small depression that creates a shallow pond.  It is certainly possible that you could use this natural feature to create a nice pond near the center of the tract.  Currently, it provides a continuous supply of water for the local wildlife. 

Geneva, AL is a small, quaint southern city with a population below 5,000 and the farm is less than two miles from the Florida state line.  Note: you are only 60 miles from Panama City Beach.  Enjoy the peace and quiet (and low taxes) of south Alabama while you build your special place.  Annual property taxes are less than three dollars per acre.  Schedule a showing and come take a look!
