The house faces north and has a beautiful view of the lake. Imagine having your morning coffee from the front porch watching the ducks and other birds on the water. The lake is spring fed, maintains its water level, and drains through a canal to the south where it joins the large creek. A long dock and covered boat shed provide easy access. Several 10+ pound bass have been taken from this lake and there are plenty more waiting to be caught.
There are 195 acres of Loblolly pine plantation in the USDA Conservation Reserve Program producing over $10,000 in annual rental payments. The CRP pines have been thinned once. In addition to the CRP pines, there are other merchantable pine stands and over 100 acres of mixed hardwoods. The mature, mast-producing hardwoods are located along the creeks, around the lake, and scattered throughout the tract. The old-growth red oaks are amazing!
The great diversity of trees and vegetation, along with an abundance of year-round water, provide excellent habitat for deer, turkey, ducks, and other south Alabama wildlife. It has several established food plots with deer stands in all the right places and has been intensively managed to produce some of the best quality bucks in the entire area. Pine Log Branch is a nice, all-weather creek that flows through the southwest corner of the Farm. There are miles of internal roads providing easy access throughout the tract and some great trail riding for horses or ATVs. Some isolated wetlands add more habitat for the wood ducks.
The farm land is well drained, has predominantly sandy to sandy-loam soil and produces $3,500 in annual lease payments. It has grown a variety of crops in recent years including cotton, peanuts, and corn and provides plenty of room for additional food plots during the winter months. The crop land could be easily converted to pasture or hay field if you want to raise animals. Two farm tractors are included in the sale. About 160 acres of the tract (including 40 acres of the crop land), lie on the north side of County Road 16. The balance of the tract is south of the road.
Surrounded by other agricultural tracts, Country Air Farm is conveniently located and easy to access yet provides that secluded, “in the country” feel. If you have been searching for a farm with excellent recreational value and significant income potential, you will want to see this one!
The North 160 can be purchased separately at $2,400 per acre.
