Turnkey cattle ranch in south Alabama ready for new owners to make it their own.  Montoya Ranch features a beautiful home, pastures, barns, apartment, woods, pond, and two creeks.   Located in west Coffee County, near the small town of Elba, the ranch is in a primarily agricultural area consisting of farms and large timber tracts. If you have been searching for a working cattle operation with the perfect country home, you really need to see this exceptional offering.  Montoya Ranch offers all the advantages of good country living with “move-in ready” convenience.  It features:

  • 2,833 sq ft Ranch-style farmhouse, built in 2000
  • Large Barn with stables, shop, storage, and two-bedroom apartment
  • 1,680 sq ft Pole barn for hay and equipment storage
  • 101 acres of fenced pasture
  • 65 acres of mixed hardwoods and pines
  • Two-acre, stocked pond and two creeks
  • Great deer and turkey hunting

You must see the ranch to really appreciate its beauty.  The terrain varies from level to gently rolling and the sandy-loam soil is great for growing hay and raising cows.  The pond is stocked with Bass and bream, is fed from natural springs, and remains full even during the dry months.  The pastures feature Tifton 9 Bahia grass, which greens early and continues to grow late into fall producing excellent forage and hay for your livestock.  All perimeter and most of the cross-fencing is sturdy and long-lasting field fence with a string of barbed wire across the top.  Catch pens, head chute, water and feed troughs are already in place.  The buyer has the option to purchase the 30 Beefmaster heifers and calves that are currently on the ranch.  Some of the equipment is also available for purchase.

The 2,833 sq ft well-built farmhouse was constructed in 2000.  The high ceilings, decorative wood beams, gorgeous wood floors, and flood of natural lighting perfectly accentuate the design.  It features three Bedrooms with three full baths all with separate, tiled showers, and two half-bathrooms.  You will really appreciate the large kitchen with butler’s pantry and the formal dining room.  Other features include an office with built-ins, French doors in the Master bedroom, and Living and Breakfast nooks.  The screened-in back porch extends the length of the home and provides an outstanding view of the back yard.  Both county water and well water are available.

The two-story barn includes a shop for maintaining equipment and large storage on a concrete foundation.  There are four stables on one side and an enclosed tack room, chicken coops, and more covered storage on the other.  The upstairs apartment features two bedrooms, one full bath, a complete kitchen and a large living area.    

This is also a great hunting tract!  There are approximately 65 acres of woods with a year-round, named creek flowing through the property.  The vegetation varies from open pine stands and oak hammocks to a thick understory, perfect for secure bedding areas and for keeping the big bucks close.  You can expect to flush quail along the fence rows and doves in the pastures, and the pond is a nice resting place for ducks.  In sum, this is excellent habitat for deer, turkey, and other native Alabama wildlife.  Bonus - there has been no hunting on this land for the past five years.

Located in the south Alabama countryside, Montoya Ranch is less than two hours from the Gulf coast beaches and less than four hours from Atlanta.  Don’t miss this opportunity to acquire a turnkey ranch – call and schedule your appointment to see it!
