327 acres in Conecuh County, AlabamaListing Status: Under Contract
Exceptional offering in south Alabama! PKD Timberlands is 326 acres of woods and water featuring a beautiful Dog Trot cabin, a nine-acre lake, and outstanding deer and turkey hunting. Located in north Conecuh County, near the small town of Georgiana, this is a high-end recreational tract and timber investment that offers something for everyone. The 2,800 sq ft Dog Trot cabin has six bedrooms and five full bathrooms and is ideal for large family gatherings or corporate retreats. Remote and secluded, it has all the conveniences of home while providing that special, “in the woods” feel. The stocked lake and a smaller pond are loaded with large bass, bream, and crappie. The mix of hardwoods and planted pine plantation, along with open fields and creeks, create outstanding habitat for the wildlife. There are several well-established food plots ready for you to hunt during those crisp, fall days. Whether this is your retreat or permanent residence, you can relax, hunt, fish and enjoy the peace and quiet in privacy and comfort.
Entering from the paved county road through the gate, you will wind down a wooded drive for over 1,800 feet before arriving at the cabin. Built to last with a metal roof and cedar siding, the Dog Trot was constructed in two phases. The original dwelling was built in 2009 and features three bedrooms, two full baths, a kitchen and dining area, a living area with a wood-burning fireplace, and a large utility room. You will appreciate the pine floors, pine and poplar walls, tongue in groove ceilings, and the natural lighting that perfectly accentuates the look.
The owners added the wide breezeway and another 1,300 feet of living space in 2016, all constructed using the same materials as the original. The addition has three more bedrooms, three full baths, and another utility room. Its spacious master bedroom has its own private entrance off the back porch and another wood-burning fireplace. The breezeway, which creates the Dog Trot, is a very special feature and will likely be the main gathering point for your family. With a gorgeous view of the lake, you will often see deer and turkey strolling around in the mornings and the evenings. Enjoy the view while staying warm with yet another wood-burning fireplace. Deep, covered porches extend the length of the home in back front and most of the front. This is a well-appointed home with too many great features to list.
A sturdy 60x24 pole barn with concrete floor, metal roof, and metal siding provides ample storage room for your equipment and gear. The barn includes a 24x24 enclosed shop with roll-up door, power, and water. A cleaning station is already in place at the barn for dressing your game and fish - and the cabin has an outdoor shower!
PKD Timberlands has a great mix of planted pines and hardwoods that create the perfect habitat for wildlife. There are approximately 100 acres of 22+ year old planted pine plantation, most of which have been thinned once. All the pines could be thinned again resulting in some near-term income for the new owners. The balance of the tract is a mix of older hardwoods, including mast-producing white oak, red oak, and Hickory trees, among many others, and more pines of all ages and size. The diversity means the deer and turkey have plenty to eat, great bedding areas, and limbs to roost on. Nine established food plots, in all the right places, range from a half-acre to over five acres in size and provide the opportunity to have a nice dove field. Miles of internal trails allow access to all parts of the property. The tract is also host to coveys of native quail and a variety of ducks.
The nine-acre lake has been stocked and professionally managed to grow lots of bream and crappie, and some big largemouth bass. Fed by a creek and natural springs, it maintains its water levels throughout the year. The lake was designed with several peninsulas scattered along the shore allowing easy access for bank fishing and providing lots of space to work your fly rods. Three creeks, several smaller seasonal creeks, and the natural springs ensure the lake and pond remain full and there are plenty of water sources for the animals.
PKD Timberlands is a very special place that you must see to appreciate. The property is in a great location approximately one hour from Montgomery, 1½ hours from Mobile, and less than two hours from Pensacola and the renowned Gulf-Coast beaches. Atlanta is just over three hours away. The tract has a recent survey and there are no easements or encumbrances. If you have been searching for the perfect getaway, you may have just found it.
