This recreational land for sale is a great combination of bottom land, ridges and hollows, and everything in between. The topography varies quite a bit over this large property. A great internal network of dirt roads and trails leads throughout the property, providing access to all of the different areas. The timber is a combination of large bottom land and upland hardwoods, planted long leaf pines, loblolly, and Virginia pines. The existing timber provides great natural habitat for the deer, turkey, quail, and other wildlife that live on this property. The tract lays well and feels immense when you are riding through it. There are over 300 acres of game plots for the wildlife on the property.
The combination of luxury amenities, trophy sporting opportunities, proximity to Birmingham, conservation easement potential, and income producing activities makes this one of the most unique legacy properties available for purchase in the Southeastern U.S. at present. This property has multiple potential streams of income that could be enhanced and maximized for even more revenue generation. It would be hard to find a better location for a corporate retreat or full-time paid hunt and fishing outfitter.
World Class Deer Hunting
Almost the entirety of this property is in an 8′ high enclosure; 14.5 miles of fencing span the perimeter and comprise the internal enclosures. The owners have introduced genetics from the best Texas whitetail lines to produce healthy, vigorous, large typical bucks. At over 2,600 acres, the enclosure is so large that it is like fair chase hunting. The owners sell trophy hunting opportunities to paying clients annually, and this is a good ongoing revenue generator for the property.
Deer Breeding Facility
There is a nice deer breeding facility with all of pens and Priefert panels and catch equipment needed for AI operations on the herd. There is a soft release pen and several smaller pens that can be used for isolation if needed.
Trophy Bass Fishing and Water Resources
Blue Buck Lake – From its inception, Blue Buck Lake was constructed to be one of the finest sport fishing lakes in the Southeast. Comprised of over 55 surface acres of water, the owners constructed rock piles, logs, brush piles, humps, and other habitat and then marked the 57 different locations in the lake with GPS coordinates so locating the lunkers would be easier. The lake is intensively managed to prevent overcrowding and to continue producing the trophy bass that keeps guests coming back. Guests line up to book their chance at catching the fish of a lifetime, and this is another way the property generates income. The lake is currently managed by Lake and Land Aquatic Solutions.
East Lake – Having one lake on a property that produces 10 pound bass is a rare treat, but having two is angling nirvana. East Lake is approximately 10 acres, with its own boat launch.
Barn Lake – The barn lake is in one of the pastures near the horse barn. It has been stocked with rainbow trout for fishing in the cooler months and winter.
Trout Lake – There is a 1 acre cold water lake lying above Blue Buck Lake that offers trout fishing opportunities in cold weather.
Large creeks – There are 3 named creeks on the property that offer year-round water to the wildlife. Watson Creek, Third Creek, and Cobb Creek all flow through, providing water in different locations.
Lodging and Improvements
Main Lodge – There are two custom, Jim Barna design lodges on the property that offer luxury accommodations to the guests. The main lodge is perched atop a high hill overlooking spectacular Blue Buck Lake. This lodge is approximately 7,500 sq. ft. divided among 3 levels. This lodge has 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, and an internal elevator that reaches all 3 levels.
Second Lodge – The second lodge is also a Jim Barna design, and is situated on a hill overlooking Blue Buck Lake. This lodge is approximately 4,500 sq. ft. spread over 3 levels.
Barn/Lodge – At the entrance to the property is a building that doubles as a barn and lodge. It is approximately 2,400 sq. ft. that has a living area, kitchen, office, and bathroom. This would be a good place for guides or large groups to room together.
Horse stalls – A four stall horse barn is situated near the entrance to the property. There are two pastures, totaling almost 8 acres adjacent to the horse barn. The property has almost 100 miles of internal roads and trails that offer countless opportunities for trail riding on the plantation.
Access to the property is limited via an electronic gate at the entrance with a key pad or remote entry devices. The main lodge is approximately 3 miles from the entrance gate. Privacy is the ultimate luxury while you are on the plantation.
Boat House and Docks
Your fishing excursions can depart from the boat house and docks on Blue Buck Lake. The dock provides several covered slips for launching or mooring your fishing boat. There is a tackle locker, refrigerator, and bathroom at the boat house. The docks offer even more space to tie up boats, and there is a boat ramp for unloading or trailering your boat.
Conservation Easement Potential
White Oak Valley Plantation has significant appeal because of the conservation easement possibilities associated with the property. The plantation was originally developed to be an equity share property with 29, five acre parcels surrounding Blue Buck Lake to be sold for $550,000 each. The owners went to great effort and expense to have preliminary studies done on the wildlife and native flora and fauna on the property. There is potential for a conservation easement that allows you to protect this legacy property in perpetuity, while realizing some of the significant tax benefit now. With almost 3 miles of frontage on Interstate 65 and a sporting development next door, there is a good case to be made for the feasibility of donating an easement on this property. For more information about conservation easements, please consult your attorney or tax professional.
