164 acres in Dale County, Alabama
Listing Status: Sold
Exceptional hunting, timber, and residential offering in southeast Alabama! White Oak Lodge tract features 164 acres of mature hardwoods and pines, a 4,292 sq ft Lodge, a year-round creek, two ponds, paved road frontage and some of the finest deer and turkey habitat in the entire area. Move-in ready, the property is in Dale County, midway between Dothan and Troy, and minutes from Fort Rucker and Ozark. Montgomery is an hour to the north and the Gulf Coast beaches are less than two hours away. Lake Eufaula, world-famous for trophy Bass fishing and host to many professional tournaments each year, is just 50 miles to the east. White Oak Lodge would be an ideal retirement destination. It would serve equally well as a corporate retreat, a multi-family partnership, or as a hunting outfitter.
Private and secluded, the tract is easily accessible with over 1,254 feet of paved road frontage on County Road 5. Nestled at the end of the winding, private drive, the spacious, two-story lodge is perfect for large gatherings. Built in 1980, the lodge is in outstanding condition, and ready for new owners to make it their special place. With a 4 BR/3 BA, split-level design, there is ample room for living and entertaining. The lodge features large bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas. Both floors have extra-large back porches extending the length of the home and overlooking the pond. The fireplace upstairs and wood burning stove downstairs are sure to be favorite places during the fall and winter months. The open floor plan offers many options for configuring the living space to meet your specific needs. A large metal barn with roll up door provides secure storage for your tractor, ATVs and other equipment.
This tract has been managed exclusively for hunting for over two decades. The timber has not been cut for many years and the results are impressive. No recent cruise is available, but the tract is completely covered with merchantable hardwood and pine timber. Large, mature white oak trees are prevalent throughout the tract. Well known for their high-quality timber, and in demand for making whiskey barrels, white oaks also produce some of the largest and sweetest acorns that deer and turkey prefer. There are food plots in all the right places and extensive internal trails provide access to most of the tract. The owner also planted dozens of Chestnut trees, saw tooth oaks, muscadines, and a wide assortment of fruit trees around the lodge and the food plots.
The topography varies from level to gently rolling to sloping down to the creek. Caney Creek runs for well over a half-mile through the tract. It is a flowing, sandy-bottomed creek that provides a dependable, year-round supply of fresh water and creates excellent habitat for the wildlife. Smaller “feeder” creeks empty into Caney Creek as it meanders through the tract. The pond was stocked with bass and bream and you are likely to see deer and turkey stopping by for an early morning or late afternoon drink. In sum, the tract has everything necessary to attract and hold healthy populations of deer, turkey, and other south Alabama wildlife.
White Oak Lodge offers peaceful and comfortable country living, excellent hunting, substantial volumes of merchantable timber, and unlimited opportunities to make special memories for generations to come.
