If you have been waiting for an affordable recreational tract with merchantable timber that is close to all the conveniences of Dothan this is your opportunity! The Malvern Place features planted Longleaf pines, a like-new metal building, a pond, and a tractor! Located in Geneva County, just south of the small town of Malvern and east of Slocomb, this is perfect land for a nice country home or weekend getaway. In a largely agricultural area surrounded by farms, row crops and other timber tracts, Malvern Place also offers some good hunting. If privacy is important to you, please note that the barn is set in the back of the tract with almost twenty acres of Longleaf pines in front and a creek to the rear.
Planted in 2001, the Longleaf pines look ready for a first thinning which will provide the new owner some additional income in the near future. As you may know, Longleaf pines are in high demand, both for their beauty and for the investment potential. These are the trees that produce the most sought-after pine straw in the Southeast. With a prescribed burn after the thinning, the pine straw could also provide some supplemental income.
There are approximately five acres of open field that could be used for any number of purposes. It would be a great spot to build a home and leave plenty of room for pasture and for raising some animals. You could plant a large garden, have a great food plot for the deer, or plant a variety of other trees. A nice, spring-fed pond (it stayed full during the worst drought in 50 years) provides a constant supply of fresh water for the wildlife and some bream and bass fishing. There is a creek that runs behind this tract that serves as a good buffer and provides great habitat for all kinds of wildlife.
The 30x60 all-metal building was professionally built in 2012. It features 864 sq ft of enclosed living/storage area and a large covered porch, both of which sit on a concrete foundation. There is an additional 720 feet of covered storage with three walls and an open front for your tractor, implements, and riding lawnmower (all are included in the sale price)! The John Deere 4105, 4wd tractor only has 220 hours of run time and comes with a front-end loader and a bushhog. Power is available at the gate to the property. While the property is closer to the town of Malvern, it has a Slocomb address. Only 15 minutes from the Ross Clark Circle in Dothan and 70 miles from Panama City, FL!
From Hwy 52 in Malvern, take Lafollette Road south for 1.9 miles. Gate to the tract will be on your right.
