Dunavant Valley Oaks

I have spent my entire career walking the forest of the southeastern USA. 

Rarely have I come across a large property like this with such enormous potential leading in so many different directions.


The details . . . .

  • This 1,633-acre property is located in NW Shelby County, Alabama, about 30 minutes to downtown Birmingham
  • Potential uses include residential development, corporate or church campus, conservation investment or family retreat
  • Situated about 3 minutes from Shoal Creek golf community, home to 2 PGA Championship tournaments.  It is within 8 miles of five of Birmingham’s weathliest residential neighborhoods
  • 80% to 85% of the acres are gently rolling hills, unlike the steepness of many other large properties in this area
  • 3,200 feet of paved road frontage + 5,000 feet of gravel county road frontage
  • Water and power at the propety.  A potential sewer hookup is 3.1 miles to the west
  • The property has 5 points of access on 4 separate public roads, yet all internal roads are exclusively used by the owners
  • Includes a 5-acre lake and a cabin
  • Conservation investors will note the mature hardwood forest, montane longleaf pine stands & the unique plants identified by a field survey conducted by a certified arborist (report available on request)
