sandy-creek-ponds-3-_-4Located on 42 acres, this home and location is so unique you must SEE it to BELIEVE it. The home features and up and downstairs living area, each with a fireplace and heart-warming views of the ponds and sunsets. Four stocked ponds feature the perfect promenade to showcase different fish: pond 1, bass & Crappie; pond 2, shellcracker and bluegill; Pond 3, catfish and Pond 4, bass and a few Crappie. The spring fed creek, Sandy Creek, borders the entire length of the northern side of the property.

An established orchard features: blueberries, peaches, apples, pears and figs. Two Almond trees and grape vines where planted two years ago and should mature this spring. Mature blackberries line both sides of one trail.

A hunting house is located on the western side of the property, facing Sandy Creek where deer pass frequently. The hunting house seats 2 or 3 people and has railing and steps on the backside of the house. The front side faces 20 acres. Another location of approximately ½ acre is currently being used for dove shooting but could be fenced for goats or used for hunting turkey. The property is level and would also make a perfect garden spot.

A fireplace full kitchen, open concept living area, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms are located upstairs. One bedroom/den, man-cave, newly renovated bath and office/kitchenette area are located downstairs.

A barn or work-shed with a loft and covered outside working or equipment parking area are located between ponds two and three. The strip of land between ponds two and three provide the perfect shooting range into the banked hill behind. A composter is located on the property and a outdoor, stone fireplace and smoker.

Neighbors near us own a range of 20 to 100+ acres and all the nice homes are gated. Our closest neighbor just built a very impressive home underground. This property is less than one of the largest land-grant colleges in the south, Auburn University. The counties and small towns surrounding the college are rural. There are a lot of beautiful farms in the outlying areas.
