110 Ac - Houston County - Oakley Place
110 acres in Houston County, Alabama
Listing Status: Sold
Outstanding hunting and timber tract less than 20 minutes from Dothan, AL! The 110-acre Oakley Place features merchantable planted pines, mixed hardwoods, two seasonal creeks, some recent clear cut and paved road frontage. Located in Northeast Houston County, just south of the small town of Columbia, it would be a perfect location to build a nice country home or a weekend getaway. Power is immediately available at the road. As a bonus, the Chattahoochee River is about one mile to the east, so you are less than ten minutes away from a boat ramp and some of the best bass fishing in the Southeastern United States!
The timber includes two different stands of planted Loblolly pines. There are about 38 acres that have been thinned twice and are now growing saw timber. Another 16-acre stand in the south was planted in 2003 and has been thinned once. Approximately 30 acres of pines were harvested in 2018. The balance of the tract is in a very nice mixture of large creek bottom hardwoods and some older pines. There is some residual storm damage on the tract, but most of the standing timber is strong and healthy.
The terrain varies from level to gently sloping and the soil is sandy loam, typical for the area. The main creek (both creeks are seasonal), flows right down the middle of the tract from North to South. A smaller creek flows from the east before joining the main creek in the center of the property. There are any number of options if you plan to build a home or a hunting camp. You can build close to one of the roads for convenience or tuck it away in the woods for privacy. And, with about 30 acres in the recent clear cut, now would be a great time to convert some of the property to pasture or farmland if you want to raise some livestock or grow some crops. Or, you could replant the clear cut area in more trees.
With a great mix of planted pines and hardwoods, the Oakley Place has everything necessary to attract and hold the wildlife. There are areas of thick brush scattered throughout the tract providing plenty of places for the deer to bed down in safety. The numerous large oak trees provide food and shade and there are three established food plots with several options for more. The clear-cut areas create plenty of “edge” where deer love to hang out. Turkeys can roost in some of the huge creek bottom hardwoods and strut in the open areas.
Surrounded by farmland and large timber tracts, you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Here is your opportunity to create your own special place! Priced at $2,090 per acre, you need to see this tract!
