82 Ac - Coffee and Covington Counties - Pond Creek Tract
82 acres in Coffee County, Alabama
Listing Status: Sold
The Pond Creek tract is an outstanding hunting property and future timber investment that features a two-acre pond, paved road frontage (with utilities at the road), and over a quarter-mile of beautiful Pond Creek! Located on the Coffee-Covington County line near Elba, AL, this 82-acre tract is perfect for someone who wants an accessible but secluded property to build a home or a camp and enjoy some excellent deer and turkey hunting while they manage their timber. The rolling terrain also features some natural springs and diverse vegetation creating excellent habitat for deer, turkey and other native Alabama wildlife.
Approximately sixty acres of timber were harvested in 2018. The current owner is applying for the USDA Longleaf program and anticipates the tract to be reforested in 2019/2020. This cost-share program covers a significant portion of the expenses to put the land back in production. Once the trees are planted, they are the property of the landowner (but must be left to grow for a minimum of 15 years before they can be cut). At harvest time, all the proceeds will be yours! While you wait for the planting prep to be done you can develop and shape the property as you desire. You pick the spots for your food plots, camp site and dove field. If you want to convert some of the land to farm or pasture, now is the time!
Pond Creek is a wide, flowing creek with a sandy bottom delivering plenty of fresh, cool water year-round. Large hardwoods line the creek in the Streamside Management Zone providing shade and perfect habitat. The two-acre pond, located near the center of the tract, was constructed many years ago and is also surrounded by larger hardwoods. Between the creek, the pond, and some natural springs, there is no shortage of water. Judging by the amount of sign around the pond and the creek, deer and turkey sure like it here!
The tract has over a quarter mile of frontage on County Road 377, a paved, all-weather road that provides easy access regardless of the weather conditions. There is both power and county water on CR 377 so utilities are not going to be cost-prohibitive if you want to build on the land. An internal road system allows for good access to the pond and down to the creek. The tract is surrounded by farmland and large tracts of timber creating a real sense of being in the country! A recent survey confirms the tract is 82.1 acres.
Pond Creek tract straddles the Coffee and Covington County lines and will have an Elba, AL address. Note to out-of-state hunters - Deer hunting in Alabama begins with archery season in mid-October and remains open through the 10th day of February. That is almost four months! Turkey season opens March 16th and lasts until the 30th of April. As a bonus, this tract is a short 90 miles from the Florida beaches! Priced at $1,706 per acre, you need to take a look at the Pond Creek tract!
