557,900  175 acres  Call Debbie 


This PRIVATE, PRIVATE, PRIVATE, magnificent property is perfect for those looking for their own hunting club, private retreat or family estate. And did I mention that it is private?
It consists of 175 +/- acres with 360 acres of mineral rights and good timber. A complete survey was done when Owner purchased property.

This property has TWO gated entrances on a blacktop road. You cannot see the house places from the blacktop road. There is very little traffic on this blacktop road. There is approximately a mile +/- of road frontage on the county maintained blacktop road with county water line along the road for the length of the property.

The property was Stough Bow Hunting club when owner purchased property. Property has not been a hunting club for almost 14 years. Only family and a few friends have hunted for the 14 years. There are green fields already in place. There is an abundance of deer, turkey, squirrel and other wildlife.

All interior roads have crushed stone on them.

There is a small lake on the property that could easily be enlarged.

There are 3 springs producing the total of 27.5 gallons per minute, 24/7 year round. Any interested party is welcome to check the volume of water for themselves. This water has not slowed down while the owner has had it even during 2 droughts that we had during that time. Owner has been told by locals that these springs have run with no problems for around 200 years. One is in use now at one of the home sites on the property.
There is also a nice, steel waterwheel, and a micro hydro turbine to go with the property, that Purchaser can install on the property.

Alabama Power is already in place at 2 different home sites on the property.

One home site has a 16′ x 60′ ?, 2 bedroom 2 bath mobile home and a 12′ x 24′ storage building with metal sides and roof that is about 2 years old. It has a roll up door in the end and a walk door in the side and 2 windows. This site has county water, a septic tank and electricity from Alabama Power.

Another home site has septic tank already in place. It has electricity from Alabama Power already in place. Plus there is a diesel generator, batteries and inverters already in place to make your own 220 power. It has spring water with a pump.
At this site is a partially erected 50′ wide x 75′ long by 16′ high metal building on a concrete slab with plumbing in the concrete slab with a 25′ wide x 75′ long shed attached.

There are no easements across property other than Alabama Power Company easement and the easement to the mobile home for the water line.

What else could you ask for in your own paradise? There is water, electricity, hunting and a lake, plus privacy; your own private get-a-way. This property could easily be made into a self-supporting piece of property where families can raise their own food and have their own privacy for what appears to be hard times ahead. There is even timber on the property that can be used for building numerous houses if you so desire. Due to owner’s age he needs to be closer to his children and the area he was born in.
