Boatner Creek Tract is an Alabama property offering open pastures, pine plantations, a creek, a pond, and an existing home, all of which allow for multiple uses from income generation to recreation.
This tract is located in the piedmont region of mid-eastern Alabama, noted for its rolling hills. It is in a rural setting between the cities of Roanoke and Wadley, Alabama on State Road 22, about 10 minutes from town.
Boatner Creek Tract has 1,267 feet of frontage on Alabama Highway 22. A gravel driveway provides primary access into the interior of the property from the highway to a current home site. There is a system of trails and woods roads that provide access to the extremities of the tract.
The tract can accommodate several potential ownership objectives. It has about 52 acres of planted pine, 23 acres of pasture, a stocked half acre pond and two creeks that either serve as a boundary line or flow through the tract.
There is a 52-acre loblolly pine plantation that was thinned about 2 or 3 years ago. It is growing well and is making the transition from pulpwood to higher-class products. This plantation presents some very viable management options to benefit both timber production and wildlife habitat. Our timber cruise reveals a current stocking of 42.3 tons of merchantable timber per acre.
Boatner Creek (for which the property is named) flows through the northeastern section of the property. It is a wide creek that is perennial during normal weather patterns. There is also a half-acre pond that is stocked with bream and bass on the west side of the tract, and another small creek below the pond.
There is a 58’ x 14’ single-wide mobile home with two bedrooms and one bath which was built in 1988 according to tax records. We cannot account for its overall condition; however, it is still being used as a weekend retreat by the current owners and has a very clean appearance. There is also a tractor shed.
The mobile home is situated in the perfect spot for a potential permanent home site as it overlooks a meadow in the pasture and faces west for watching sunsets at night. The home is just far enough off the public road to give the feel of seclusion and privacy. The tract has not been hunted in several years and has become a bit of a sanctuary for local wildlife. It is in close proximity to other recreational opportunities, such as Lake Wedowee, West Point Lake, and the Tallapoosa River, all within easy driving distances.
