55 acres in Geneva County, Alabama
Listing Status: Under Contract
Country life at its finest! Underwood Mill Farm is a multi-use property featuring active cropland, pine plantation, and a gorgeous stand of mixed hardwoods with plenty of great locations to build your dream home. Less than 10 minutes from Dothan, it lies in east Geneva County just west of the small town of Rehobeth. With power available, and a quarter mile of frontage on Underwood Mill Road, the Farm provides many options for the new owners. You can live, hunt, farm, and manage timber on your own place. It is outside the city limits, so this is an ideal property for someone looking to create a self-sustaining homestead to grow your own food and raise some livestock. Some of the cropland could easily be converted to pasture providing a nice balance of garden and grass. It is ready to be shaped to fit your vision!
Approximately 16 acres of the Farm are currently under cultivation. The terrain is well drained, level to gently sloping, and provides several great locations to build your home, cabin, or Barndominium. The sandy loam soil is perfect for growing cotton, peanuts, or hay (cotton was grown in 2020). If you aren’t inclined to farm it yourself, you have the option to continue leasing the cropland to a local farmer for some supplemental income.
There are approximately 18 acres of Longleaf pines that were planted in 1998 which are currently under a pine straw lease. These pines will need to be thinned in the near future which will also generate some income. The balance of the tract includes a stand of mature hardwoods with a grassy forest floor and a wet-weather creek that flows from north to south through the middle of the tract. This combination of fields and woods creates the perfect habitat for deer, turkey, and other native wildlife.
Underwood Mill Farm is a great find. It offers a quiet country setting minutes away from hospitals, shopping, groceries, and entertainment. Although the farm is in Geneva County, you have the option to send children to Houston County schools if you are willing to pay some tuition. As a bonus, the Florida Gulf Coast beaches are less than 75 miles from the Farm! If you need more room, there is additional acreage adjoining for sale. Deed restrictions include no poultry houses and no mobile homes. Taxes are less than $120 annually.
Deed restrictions include no poultry houses and limit of one mobile home on the property for personal use for no more than five years.
