BranMar Farm- 490 acres in Chilton County, AL
ranMar Farm is a beautiful cattle farm and timberland property for sale in Chilton County, Alabama. This is one of those unique opportunities to purchase a property that has truly been loved and well-cared for through the years. When you drive through the gate, you can take a deep breath and settle into the peaceful atmosphere. This is a place where the stresses can melt away. The land was used by the previous owner as a functioning cattle farm, with good fencing and cross-fencing. There are well-built cattle working facilities, with covered catch chutes, and load-out facility. There are approximately 190 acres of open, fenced acreage for running livestock. The soils are very conducive to running cows- with fertile sandy land that drains well and the ground stands up well for grazing, and grows grass well for hay production.
Water resources- There are 3 bodies of water on the property that provide year round water for livestock and recreation. The crown jewel of this farm is a large lake that is approximately 28 acres. The large lake is fed by springs and a creek, and was previously stocked for fishing.This would be a fantastic place to paddle a canoe or kayak. A smaller lake of approximately 2.5 acres lies southwest of the large lake. On the north side of County Road 205 is about a 1/2 acre stock pond. This provides water for any livestock that might be grazing in that paddock. Other creeks and streams flow through the property.
Houses- One of the great things about this farm is that the houses are well-built, but modest enough as not to be over-improved for the acreage. There is a cozy, rustic cabin along the shore of the large lake. The cabin has a large, open floor plan with a tall stone fireplace in the great room. There is a sleeping area in the loft above the kitchen. The porch view of the lake is serene and peaceful. The owners home has several bedrooms, with a fireplace in the living room. It is comfortable, but not over-built. There is a caretaker's home on the property, but would likely need a significant remodel before placing someone there permanently.
Improvements- Storage, sheds, and workshops are plentiful on the property. There is a large, 5 bay open storage shed for equipment or tractors. Directly across from the 5 bay shop is a large, workshop with 3 roll-up doors on north and west sides. You can tell this shop was meticulously maintained. There is an office in the large workshop area. There is an additional small office building that stands beside the large workshop. Just up from that is a covered feed storage shed. Across from the feed shed is the cattle catch facility. There are also some hay barns in some of the pastures.
Timber and hunting land- The timber on this property is beautiful, and has significant timber value. There are approximately 290 acres of forest land, that consists of mature mixed hardwoods and pines. This timber could be harvested, or could continue to be maintained for sustaining wildlife and recreation. There are several food plots throughout the property.
