This historical plantation consists of 3,000 acres (400 acres fee simple and 2,600 acres on a long-term irrevocable hunting lease). Formerly operated as one of Alabama's premier commercial hunting facilities since 1995, this beautiful land has abundant deer, turkey, dove and quail populations and excellent wildlife habitat. It is easily accessible being 45 miles from Montgomery, 38 miles from Auburn and 48 miles from Columbus, GA.
This land is part of a large 1841 plantation owned by Braxton Bragg Comer who was Governor of Alabama from 1907 to 1911. Before becoming Governor of Alabama, B.B. Comer was a leading industrialist, establishing a large cotton manufacturing company known as Avondale Mills of Birmingham in 1897.
The antebellum mansion, built in 1841, rests in a pecan orchard and features 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, modern kitchen, fireplaces, 16 ft. ceilings and beautiful heart pine floors. A new roof was installed in 2009. Adding to the ambience of stepping back in time, there are 3 restored tenant houses, 5 barns, the first cotton gin in Alabama, a century old baptismal, and a slave cemetery on the property.
There are too many amenities to name but some important ones are as follows:
Four lakes 6 acres, 12 acres, 15 acres and 85 acres. All but one have covered pavilions and trophy bass and bream are plentiful.
A 16 year old fully furnished 8000 square foot lodge. It includes a large gathering room with fireplace, meeting room, 7 bedrooms with private baths, commercial kitchen, large dining room, an office and a pro shop.
A 30 KW diesel generator goes with the lodge.
3 bedrooms, 2 bath home for manager and small house for employee.
750 square foot kitchen and meat processing room with walk-in cooler.
Large BBQ pit with adjoining covered picnic facility.
Kennels for up to 30 bird dogs.
Miles of excellent internal roads.
50 foot tower for continental pheasant shoots.
Horse barn with 3 large fenced pastures (one has electric fences).
Vehicles, tractors, boats, ATVs, farm implements and tools valued in excess of $100,000.
This trophy property is a turn-key operation. The new owner can continue operating it as a commercial facility and use it at his convenience for personal enjoyment. This would allow the owner to reduce his annual operating costs. The current manager and his wife are willing to stay and manage the property.
The hunting lease payments are only $7.50 per acre, which is well below the going rate of $12 to $15 per acre. Therefore, the lease has a great deal of value for the new owner.
It is easily accessible being 45 miles from Montgomery, 38 miles from Auburn and 48 miles from Columbus, GA.
