Hobby Farm Property - Low Property Taxes (Approx 540.00 Annually)

Approximately 40 acres with house, barn, muscadine vineyard, Bee Hives and large hobby farm chicken house (accommodates 30 35 birds). Beautifully landscaped property with stocked pond, producing muscadine vineyard and is surrounded by mature trees on country dirt road. Very private rural setting with quiet neighbors. Located between Greenville and Luverne Alabama. There is an unfinished 1160 sf daylight basement ready to build out for wine production and wine cellaring. Includes a finished business office/ storm cellar with a large covered porch.

The house is a country get-a-way with wrap around screened porches and a dog trot separating the 2 bays of this unique home. Each bay has 20-foot-high cathedral ceiling disguising its tiny house size. It is a one bedroom 2 full bath that sleeps 6 comfortably in the centrally heated and cooled areas. The climate here allows for outdoor entertaining 7 months out of the year. It has outdoor sleeping porches with built in bunks and an outdoor shower. There is an open front porch with an outdoor sink for processing farm vegetables or fish. There are shady decks on the pond and sheep side of the home with outdoor grills. The 1 bedroom 2 full baths also have an unfinished 260 sf bunk house style sleeping loft over the dog trot. This home easily accommodates large gatherings with its spacious outdoor living venues. There is a beautiful jasmine draped detached wooden carport for parking or used as an additional covered patio for entertaining.

Landscaping includes, a small garden plot with established blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. There are 260 of feet of established Red and White muscadine vines and 140 trellised Kiowa Blackberry vines. There are established blueberry plants, and all this is irrigated with a drip system. The landscaping also includes banana trees, herbs, hydrangea, Rose of Sharon, a fragrant spring blooming rose hedge, confederate rose trees, tea olive trees and azaleas. We have an assortment of mature fruit bearing trees including pomegranate, plum, apple, fig, peach and, pear all zoned for our area. The fish stocked pond has 2 seating areas one with a wisteria trellis and the other beneath established oaks. There are bird houses for the purple martins that come every spring. There is a fresh stream fed by 600 neighboring acres of run off that trails on the north and west borders of the tract dividing the property.

Our barn (24 x 36) currently has one enclosed section that houses our hair sheep herd. The other 2/3 of the barn is open for storing equipment and tools. The sheep are penned in by an electric fence.

Cleared area of about 12 acres of pasture and pond and the rest in wooded areas that could be developed or left for hunting. There is deer, turkey and quail on the property. There is the potential to build about a 7 acre lake nestled in the woods. This is excellent if there is the desire to build a tiny house village and community.

We currently have sheep, geese, ducks, chickens, turkey and a peacock that can come with the farm. We run an internet farm gift basket business that can be included in the sale.

We have excellent cell phone/ internet service.
