SOLD! Welcome to an exceptional turnkey property that offers a multitude of recreational opportunities! Marshall Farm is located in the Bluff community of northwestern Fayette County in an area that is known to produce some of the largest whitetail deer in the state each year.

Marshall Farm is also well-located in proximity to both Birmingham and Tuscaloosa with a drive time of roughly just over an hour to either city. The ease of access and turnkey nature of the tract make it possible to slip off for an afternoon hunt and stay as long as you want with all the conveniences of home!
For its size, Marshall Farm is one of the most diverse and well laid out properties on the market. The property is well suited for a family retreat with several improvements tucked back off of the highway. The main house is a scenic farm house design and features a formal dining room, bonus room, open living area with a full kitchen, two bedrooms with one full bathroom, mud room with an additional full bathroom, laundry room and a screened porch.

Located behind the main house is the bunkhouse and storage building. The bunkhouse is nicely setup to accommodate additional guests and also serve as a game room or family area. Wireless internet, satellite tv and a security system give you the comforts for a weekend retreat or a full-time residence. Additional improvements on the property include a large barn with lots of storage, skinning shed and a fenced area for livestock and a garden.
Marshall Farm has been intensively managed for wildlife since 2003. One look at the mounts, shed antlers and extensive trail camera inventory over the years and you will see that the proof is really in the pudding with this property! The tract has been developed and designed to promote wildlife habitat that is conducive to not only whitetail deer but turkey, dove and other small game as well. Flat to very gently rolling topography makes access a breeze throughout the tract with several miles of internal roads and trails. There is roughly 50+/- acres of open land that is utilized as a mixture of hay fields, fruit and nut orchards, food plots and 10-15 acres in row crop. Twelve annual food plots are planted each year throughout the property to provide a lush forage of peas, clover, turnips and rape. Multiple stands of mature white oaks, red oaks, sawtooth oaks and other fruit and nut trees accompany many of the food plots offering a variety of mast that starts producing in the early season and carries into the fall to help draw and hold deer and other game on this wildlife sanctuary. There are eight enclosed shooting houses that are strategically located overlooking the food plots as well as other pinch points and natural funnels. The remainder of the land is a mixture of pine plantation, natural hardwood bottoms and transitional zones between the food and cover. 75+/- acres of the property consists of pine plantation that has been thinned twice and is in the CRP program generating $3,000 of annual income. The abundance of cover in the pine plantation creates good bedding and travel corridors along the edges of transitional habitat zones. Multiple springs, creeks and ponds supply ample water across the tract giving the wildlife a year-round water source. By combining food, water and cover, everything about this farm has been designed to enhance the wildlife habitat and herd while keeping the odds of success in your favor!
For the angler in the bunch, Marshall Farm offers two private ponds as well as shared access and ownership of the eastern shoreline of Bluff Lakes. Bluff Lakes is a private fishing club that provides access to two 3-5 acre lakes that are stocked and managed. There is good fishing for largemouth bass, shell-cracker and crappie in the multiple lakes and ponds. The wind whistling through the pines, sun gleaming across the water and serene views of the surrounding landscape make Marshall Farm the total package when it comes to turnkey recreational property! The property is gated and locked and is shown strictly by appointment only. Please call Lee Gantt or John Morris for more information or to arrange a private showing.
