22 Ac - Pike County - Norman Wilson Road Tract
22 acres in Pike County, AlabamaListing Status: Sold
What a great location for your country home! The Norman Wilson Road tract is 22 acres (surveyed) with 868 feet of paved road frontage in a very nice part of Pike County between the towns of Brundidge and Banks. Most of this property is in planted Longleaf pines, with about two acres in older Loblolly pines. If you can envision this place in a few years’ time, you will see a beautiful stand of pines on an amazing piece of ground. The terrain is level to gently sloping, providing any number of locations to build your home. You can live close to the road for convenience or tuck it in the back for more privacy. Norman Wilson Road is a pleasant country road, 2.5 miles long with minimal traffic, and features gorgeous views of farm land, pasture, and timber tracts. Your neighbors are comfortably distant - there are only six homes scattered along the road and none are visible from this property. Power is available at the road.
The Longleaf pines were planted in January 2017 and the survivability rate appears to be very good. They were planted through the NRCS cost-share program. The new owner will receive all the benefits and proceeds from the thinning and eventual harvest of the trees but must agree to allow them to continue to grow until they are at least 15-years of age. These trees, which remain in the “grass” stage for a few years, appear to have had a strong start and look very healthy. Longleaf pine, the predominant native pine tree in the southeast when the country was settled, is a hearty, drought-and-fire resistant species that flourishes in this area of the state. Properly managed, the Longleaf pine straw is in high demand and could potentially be used as an additional source of income in the future. From the aerial map, you will see that the older pines almost look like a large turkey track.
This is an area known for good deer and turkey hunting and the adjoining property to the east is full of large hardwoods. The young pines provide excellent bedding and cover for deer and, with a well-positioned food plot, you should expect to see plenty of them on this property. If you have been looking for a nice country getaway, you need to see this property! The property has a Troy address but the nearest town is Brundidge.
