127 Ac – Conecuh County – Brownville Lake House
127 acres in Conecuh County, Alabama
Listing Status: Sold
This is a genuine south Alabama treasure! Brownville Lake House features an exact replica of a traditional 1800’s Alabama home overlooking a gorgeous, seven-acre lake tucked away nicely in 127 acres of mature forest. Located in Conecuh County about four miles east of Evergreen, AL, the property is in an area known for great deer and turkey hunting. You can hunt, fish, escape, and just relax in privacy and comfort.
The property is loaded with a diverse mix of hardwoods and pine trees providing plenty of cover and food for the wildlife. Giant white oaks, red oaks, magnolias, and beech trees provide a spectacular background. There are three creeks on the property, all fed by natural springs and all with flowing water. It is home to deer, turkey, ducks, geese and plenty of small game. Several food plots are scattered throughout the tract, ranging in size from a half-acre to over four acres. The larger food plots could easily support a nice dove field. A good internal trail system provides easy access throughout the tract.
The lake is professionally managed and stocked with largemouth bass, bream, threadfin shad and a few grass carp. It is well-groomed, limed, fertilized, and in great overall shape. The largemouth bass are plentiful – and big! The owner recently caught a nice 10-pounder. The bream, shad and fish feeders provide plenty of food for sustained growth. The peninsulas were designed to provide space for bank fishing and are open enough to allow fly fishing as well. The southern cove is secluded and shallow providing a nice retreat for the wood ducks. Several pairs of Canadian Geese call Brownville Lake House their winter home and nesting place. The lake is fed by one of the larger natural springs and maintains a constant water level throughout the year – even during the Fall 2016 drought!
Nestled at the end of the winding, private drive sits a charming, cozy Dog-Trot Cabin, a replica of times long ago. Custom built in 2006, the home’s great attention to detail includes a tin roof, deep front & back screened-in porches, natural stone outdoor fireplace, and the dog-trot between the two living areas. In the practical design of the times, the tall ceilings make this 1600 sq ft home feel spacious, welcoming and warm. The house faces the lake and the front porch has an incredible view of the woods and water.
As you enter the house through the screen door, you are met with an airy screened porch the width of the home. Beyond the extra-large porch is the breeze-way that is commonly referred to as a dog -trot. Heart pine flooring spans the length of the outdoor space, as well as the entrances to both living areas and a stairway to an upstairs bedroom/office. Passing through the dog-trot, spectacular views of the lake greet you from the other porch. This porch features a traditional stone fireplace and sits under a canopy of mature white oak and beech trees.
On one side of the dog-trot is the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and bathroom. The wood burning fireplace is framed by an antique mantle. All walls and ceilings throughout the home are bead board in natural wood stain. There is crown molding, wide baseboards and door trim throughout that is in keeping with the style of the cabin. Flooring is a wood laminate. The master bedroom is spacious and three extra-large windows provide plenty of natural light. The home’s two bathrooms are situated on either side of the dog-trot and are identical. Each has an authentic claw foot tub and antique crystal chandelier.
Across to the other side of the dog-trot are two more large bedrooms, the above-mentioned bathroom, and a laundry room equipped with storage shelves. Upstairs is currently a fourth bedroom with multiple beds but would make a great get-away for office space. This one-of-a-kind home offers one more feature; a shower room. Fitted with a large shower, sink and changing area, and equipped with air conditioning and a heater, this stand-alone space is just off the main house. For your equipment, there is a 1,152 sq ft metal barn with steel posts, poured concrete floor, both rolling door and entry door, and elevated storage at the back. The barn provides plenty of secure storage room for your tractor, side-by-side, ATVs and other equipment.
Located on Brownville Road (County Rd 22), you can enjoy the beautiful south Alabama countryside with the conveniences of city water, power and natural gas. There is also an operational deep well on site. Groceries and supplies are less than ten minutes away in Evergreen.
