127 Ac - Conecuh County - Brownville Lake House
127 acres in Conecuh County, Alabama
Listing Status: Under Contract
This is a genuine south Alabama treasure! Brownville Lake House features an exact replica of a traditional 1800’s Alabama home overlooking a gorgeous, six-acre, stocked 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 with healthy deer and turkey populations and this turnkey property is set up for you to start hunting immediately. Once you shut the gate behind you on the way in, you enter your own private refuge. The lake has been professionally managed for many years and the results are impressive. The dogtrot cabin is warm and inviting and is the perfect complement to the property. Whether this is your weekend getaway or permanent destination, 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. Mature white oaks, red oaks, magnolias, and beech trees provide a spectacular background. There are stands of Loblolly pines that were select thinned for the purpose of producing pole logs and several acres of newly planted Longleaf pine. The three creeks on the property are 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 lake has produced several trophy bass over ten pounds which is not surprising since the bream, shad and multiple fish feeders provide plenty of food for sustained growth. The peninsulas were designed to provide extra 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 drought of 2019!
Nestled at the end of the winding, private drive sits a charming, cozy, dogtrot cabin, a replica of times long ago. Custom built in 2006, the home’s great attention to detail includes a tin roof, deep front and back screened-in porches, natural stone outdoor fireplace, and the dogtrot space 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 a welcoming porch extending the width of the home. Beyond the extra-large porch is the breezeway that is commonly referred to as a dogtrot. 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 dogtrot, 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 dogtrot 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 dogtrot and are identical.
Across to the other side of the dogtrot are two more large bedrooms, full bath, and a laundry room equipped with storage shelves. Upstairs is currently a bunkroom with multiple beds but would make a great secluded 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, rolling door and regular entry door, and elevated storage at the back. The barn provides plenty of secure storage room for your vehicles, side-by-side, ATVs, and other equipment. A large pole barn was built for your tractor and other implements.
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 for irrigation. Groceries and supplies are ten minutes away in Evergreen.
The Brownville Lake House provides peaceful country living, deer & turkey hunting, trophy bass fishing – and a whole lot of relaxation……
