Two large, year-round creeks and two ponds help to create ideal habitat and ensure there is an unlimited supply of freshwater for wildlife while Fort Rucker Military Reservation provides a great buffer along the entire southern border. Big whitetail bucks and Eastern wild turkeys are plentiful on the farm and Alabama’s 2½-month deer season and six-week spring turkey season allow plenty of opportunities to hunt them! The timber is a mix of hardwoods and pines of varying ages and the terrain ranges from level to gently rolling. The fishing pond lies a few hundred yards behind the home. Nicely tucked away and surrounded by woods, it is secluded and peaceful. The smaller pond is at the north end of the pasture and serves as a water source for the livestock.
The spacious, 4 BR/3½ BA home is warm and inviting with ample room for large gatherings. While the home is solidly built and fundamentally sound, and could be occupied as-is, the interior has not been updated since its original construction and needs upgrades. Built in 1979, this Tudor style home features a formal living and dining area in the front, complete with a woodburning fireplace. A large, cozy den next to the kitchen in the back takes advantage of the beautiful view of the wood line. The den includes a second woodburning fireplace and a screened-in porch, perfect to catch those summer breezes. Three of the bedrooms are on the south side of the home, with a fourth upstairs. Beyond the kitchen and laundry room is a large game room that could be used for any number of purposes. The barn provides plenty of room for all the equipment and vehicles you will need to maintain and enjoy the property and has two horse stables.
While the farm’s location provides privacy and seclusion, a great escape from the daily grind, it is very accessible and an easy drive from Montgomery or Dothan. Lake Eufaula, world-known for trophy largemouth bass tournaments, is a short 45-mile drive and Florida’s beautiful gulf coast beaches are less than 100 miles away.
Century Heritage Farm is a legacy tract ready for its new owners to start making memories for generations. If you have been searching for a large, beautiful farm in south Alabama, with unlimited potential for personal use or investment, you really need to see this property.
