Beautiful home on 9-acre lake

  • Located in north-central Coosa County, AL, near Sylacauga (15 minutes to downtown) and 60 minutes to Birmingham at I-459 and Hwy 280
  • It’s about 20 minutes to the Talladega National Forest or shopping at Alexander City (population 15,000), and about 25 minutes to Lake Martin (a 44,000-acre impoundment)
  • A beautiful 1,850 square foot house built in 2014 overlooks a 9-acre lake (address: 1114 Co Rd 75, Sylacauga AL 35136). The house has a poured concrete foundation, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, exposed wood-beam ceilings throughout the house, heart pine floors, custom walnut kitchen counter tops, electric appliances and a full unfinished day-light basement of which half is heated and cooled with plumbing stubbed in for a bathroom.  Large windows in all the rooms give ample daylight and fantastic views of the lake
  • A 20’ x 48’ pole barn with a 23’ x 11’ wing and a metal roof is located north of the house. The lake has a 24’ x 26’ pier of which 16’ x 26’ is covered including a 12’ x 22’ boat slip – perfect for fishing, swimming and canoeing in the lake
  • Paved road frontage, city water & underground sprinkler system. Heating and cooling are geothermal using lake water
  • The lake was built sometime between 1960 and 1967 before government permitting for lake construction was required. There are no known problems with the dam or its hardware.  The lake is stocked and actively managed by the owner. The property fronts for ¼ mile on Mill Creek
  • The timber consist of 28 acres of mature pine and hardwood mostly around the house, lake and creek. About 107 acres of mature pine plantation were clear-cut in 2020 and is being replanted in longleaf pine winter 2021/2022.   Significant portions of the clearcut could easily be cleared for pasture (see topo map to help with this assessment).
