Located about 15 minutes south of Enterprise, Beargrass Creek is secluded but accessible. It has 3,300 feet of paved road frontage and over 3,800 feet of dirt road frontage. The area is neat and well-kept and once you turn off the paved road onto the tract, you will immediately sense the peace and solitude of rural Alabama. Several miles of well-maintained roads meander through the beautiful hardwoods and pine stands providing access to all parts of the tract. The 10+ acre lake was constructed about 15 years ago and, fed by year-round springs on the property, maintains its level with a fresh supply of clean, cool water. It is stocked with Largemouth bass and bream. With proper management, this lake has the potential to produce some trophy-class bass!
It is difficult to find large hardwood tracts like Beargrass Creek. These hardwoods are mature and have significant market value. White and red oaks are everywhere, along with a nice mix of other species. White oaks are in particular demand because they are used to produce whiskey barrels (and the deer and turkey love their acorns). Rest assured there will be no shortages of food, cover, or shade for the wildlife. The professionally managed, planted pines cover about 270 acres of the tract. The age classes range from mature and merchantable down to three-year old trees. Some stands are ready to be thinned right now (near-term income) and the mature pines can be clear-cut and replanted at any time. The diverse ages of the plantations will enable you to really manage your timber income stream.
With a beautiful view of the lake, the 3 BR/2 BA double-wide is older but serviceable. With all utilities in place, it is well suited for immediate use as a weekend getaway or hunting camp. It has a screened in back porch with attached carport and storage area. There are other outbuildings and a shed that provide plenty of covered storage for your tractors, implements, deer stands, and other equipment.
The recreational opportunities of Beargrass Creek are unparalleled. Just as it is, you can enjoy some of the finest deer and turkey hunting in south Alabama. The combination of the lake and creeks will attract some ducks and wild quail are already thriving on the tract. Note - the thinned pines could easily be used for a quail course with some additional prescribed burning. You have any number of options for planting a large dove field and then converting that to winter food plots in late fall. You have miles of trails to hike, ride ATVs or horses, and spend quality time in the outdoors. If you have been waiting for an exceptional property priced right, this is it!
