156 acres +/- in Perry County
156 acres +/- of pasture land for sale near Marion in Perry County, Alabama. The "Plummer Place" as many locals affectionately know this property, is a great farm in the Black Belt of Alabama. It has been in the same family for almost 8 decades, and this is the first time the property has been offered for sale since the 1940's. The land has been rented to a local farmer for hay production for almost 30 years, and it is a prime hay producing farm. The topography is gently rolling, and is very pleasant to the eye.
Farm-The soils here are excellent for pasture, with much of it comprised of well-drained loam and sandy loams. There is a small pond on the northeast corner, and a feeder creek for Bogue Chitto Creek runs through the south part of the property which provide year-round water. Approximately 100 acres of the farm are in open fields. There is very good deer hunting in the area, particularly since there are many row crop farmers that are near to this place. One of the best bass fishing clubs in the region, Donavan Lakes, is just a few miles to the east. The farming lease terminates at the end of 2020.
Improvements-The home was built ~1950 by the father of the current owner, and has 3 bedrooms and two baths. It has received some updates with portions of the home having hardwood floors and some laminate, and the kitchen has a tile floor. The kitchen was updated with new bottom cabinets, and the original upper cabinets were retained. The living room is very inviting, and would be a great place to spend time with family and friends. Window units provide air conditioning in the summer, and there are propane heaters to keep you warm in the winter. There is a hook up for washing machine, but currently not a hook up for the drier. The house is served by county water and an old well is on site, but not currently in use. The house also has a garage area on the east end. Many of the windows in the house have been replaced, and the two remaining windows are on site, but have not been installed. There is a magnolia tree in the front yard that is perfect for the kids and grandchildren to climb. The house would make a great getaway spot, or with some improvements could be a primary residence. There are 3 barns for equipment and hay storage on the property.
The Plummer Place is located a few miles south of Marion on Preacher Bell Road (Leo Plummer Road). The land is an easy drive from bigger cities: 60 miles to Tuscaloosa, 87 miles to Birmingham, 25 miles to Selma, 38 miles to Demopolis, and 158 miles to Mobile.
