Description


AUSTIN EAST TRACTS
Offered as a whole and by Parcels (see brochure)
At the base of the vibrant Appalachian Mountains, in Elmore County’s rolling hills, you’ll find the Austin Property – exquisite, versatile Southern real estate with rich history and unmatched opportunity offering the very best in class for hunting, fishing, timber, location, and also development potential for residential subdivision and industrial purposes.
This is the first time in decades that this beautiful legacy property has been on the market. For more than one hundred years the Austin Family have given meticulous attention to every detail including the intricate trail system, preservation of the mature natural timber, and conservation of the abundant wildlife populations.  Whether you are looking to build your family’s dream home, an avid outdoorsman seeking a recreational haven, or an investor wanting land to develop in the state’s third fastest growing county…the possibilities are endless.
The Austin Property is located within the Piedmont Upland region of east Central Alabama; an area known for picturesque landscape contours and mineral resources. It’s within a stone’s throw of the beautiful Coosa River, Lake Jordan, and Lake Martin, all known for their exceptional recreational water activities.   It features a nice fishing pond spring fed with an outstanding bream and bass population ready for the avid angler or family just looking to make memories.  The beautiful Corn Creek flows year round through parts of the land with gorgeous areas of crystal clear waters, small waterfalls, and rock formations with gentle rapids.  Its rich history goes back for countless generations as evident in the artifacts oftentimes found throughout the property, such as primitive tools and arrowheads dating back to the original Native American inhabitants.  After purchasing the land in the 1900’s, Mr. and Mrs. Austin – both sheriffs of Elmore County – originally utilized the property for agricultural purposes for growing cotton and then later for beef & dairy farming.  Their grandson and current owner, Dr. Max Austin, can share countless interesting tidbits regarding this legacy property such as fishing with his grandfather on the banks of the pond that was built by mule-drawn scoops or that his grandmother was the first female sheriff in the state of Alabama and the first warden for Julia Tutwiler prison.  Some of the earliest environmental conservation efforts can also be traced back to the Austin Property as it was one of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) campsites during the Great Depression.  These young men built the soil terraces that remain in part on the land today.
With more than nine hundred total acres, the Austin Property (East portion) is available en masse or portioned in eight individual tracts each having its own personality, topography, recreational and investment potential.
Individual Tracts & Highlights: 29-060A Cherokee Estate (194.6 +/- acres), 29-060B Highway 9 Development (28.5 +/- acres), 29-060C Corn Creek South (145.2 +/- acres), 29-060D Austin Pond (57.3 +/- acres), 29-060E Georgia Road (127.4 +/- acres), 29-060FW Central Plank Pasture (56.6 +/- acres), 29-060FE Central Plank Pasture & Timber (86.9 +/- acres), and 29-060G Hwy 170 Plantation (219.9 +/- acres).
There’s excellent hunting land available, with mature natural timber dominated by majestic pines, oaks, and other hardwoods. 29-060A Cherokee Estate, 29-060B Highway 9 Development, 29-060D Austin Pond, and 29-060FE Central Plank Pasture & Timber.
Two tracts have a mix of natural timber and young planted pines which offers great bedding areas for deer. 29-060C Corn Creek South and 29-060E Georgia Road.
29-060G Hwy 170 Plantation has older pre-merchantable pine that will soon generate timber income from a first thinning and also offers good hunting opportunities.
There are multiple sites for building your dream home with open fields and wooded homesites on all of the tracts.
Once you pass through the gate at the end of Graham Road and enter the Austin Pond tract, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to a quieter, more peaceful era. In fact, a quaint chimney remains from its earliest inhabitants. Imagine listening to the stories that were told sitting beside a fire in that fireplace!
With available access to city water and sewage, some tracts feature beautiful spaces perfect for residential development. The open land along Highway 9 offers a great opportunity for a residential subdivision near shopping, medical care, schools, and the nearby Wind Creek casino for entertainment.
Three tracts have extensive water frontage on the beautiful Corn Creek (29-060C Corn Creek South, 29-060D Austin Pond, and 29-060E Georgia Road).
Other tracts have prime space for commercial and industrial development. The growing region is prime for residential, commercial, and industrial development. The Wetumpka Industrial Park adjoins the south side of the Corn Creek South tract.
The Austin East Tracts are a short drive from the city of Wetumpka, the charming, recently revitalized town featured on HGTV’s Home Town Takeover this past May. The relaxed pace of a small town with the convenience of big city living can be attained in this beautiful tract of land.
