Tips and "How-to's" A collection of practical thoughts on buying rural land.


Recreation Land At It’s Best

  • 202 acres of rolling, level land – extremely private – with a beautiful six acre lake and a boat house.
  • Boat house has a swing, screened in porch, floating dock and a platform boat for fishing or just plain floating.
  • The lake is fed by a large watershed. There’s a large, wide, and deep dam that makes for a very clear and rich lake.
  • With a few modifications the boat house and dock can be made wheel chair accessible.
  • A steep hillside dives straight into the lake and it’s covered in huge mountain laurel.
  • There is a large diversity of trees, shrubs, grasses and wild flowers – I noticed few if any invasive species on the property.
  • That big bird flying over the lake turned out to be an eagle!
  • The lake is chock full of big bass and at least one giant turkey. Last spring we heard a turkey walking through the woods that sounded a big as a bear.
  • The property has very good roads and a few small green fields with an abundance of native grasses.
  • The southern part of the tract has some large pine plantation that look to be about 25 to 30 years old. These trees can be thinned again and burned to encourage native grasses that attract quail or harvested for immediate income.
  • The Coosa River is 2.5 miles down Hwy 22. There’s a boat launch on Lake Jordan and another ramp nearby for Lake Mitchell.
  • It is the best of everything – hunting, fishing, wildflowers, wildlife, birds and convenient to Jordan/ Mitchell lakes.
  • Additional land on the east side of the property could be purchased for more road frontage and better access.
  • Power and public water service available at the road.
