This 205+/- acre property is one of the nicest available in Alabama. This Blackbelt property, which is located on Co Rd 42 in Akron, AL , enjoys 1 mile of Black Warrior-fed Five Mile Creek frontage. It is also really convenient to Tuscaloosa (20 minutes) as well as Birmingham (a little over an hour). In addition to a superb hunting and timber property, it could also be used as a gameday retreat for Alabama home games due to its proximity to Tuscaloosa.
The property has approximately 45 acres of pine plantation that is 25+ years old that is ready to be harvested, which would provide immediate income for a prospective buyer. 100-110 acres consists of natural, mature hardwood. The balance of the timber is younger pine plantation that ranges from 5 to 15 years old.
There is a 1.5-acre pond that has been managed by Southeastern Ponds. The pond is currently fed by the water table, so it varies depending on the time of year; it has more water in the spring than it does in the fall. However, the owner recently had an artesian well dug on the property, and that well's water pressure is strong enough to stabilize the water level of the pond.
There is an elite 3 bed/ 2 bath custom-built house that was constructed 8 years ago. It has a clever layout, beginning with a second living room on ground level flanked on either side by screened patios and equipped with a fireplace. A flight of stairs lead from there to the main floor where the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and den are located. Satellite TV and internet are already connected. The house is really, really nice, as evidenced by the photos.
Also, there is a storage shed, a pole barn which houses equipment like a large tractor and implements. Additionally, there is a new RR car which can be used to house additional items like seed, a UTV, etc.
There is a remote-controlled gate at the entrance and a really nice road system throughout. The soil on the property is a sandy loam which is typical of the black belt.

-1 mile of Black Warrior/ Five Mile Creek frontage
- 6 food plots outfitted with shooting houses
