Leavellwood has been developed to provide the finest trophy whitetail deer hunting and exciting bass fishing experiences. It is our pleasure to present you with an exclusive opportunity to purchase one of the finest sporting properties in the Southeast. Leavellwood is 490 acres +/- of land in Greene County, in Alabama’s renowned Black Belt region that is known for producing the biggest bucks and growing the biggest fish. “Excellence” and “Perfection” are the words that come to mind when you drive through the front gate.
This property could be used as a personal recreational estate, a corporate retreat, or as a hunting and fishing outfitter. The current owners have a successful hunting operation, trophy bass fishing destination, and it is a highly desirable wedding and event venue. There is potential to own this nice place, and also sell some deer and dove hunts and fishing trips to generate revenue.
Land– The 490 acre +/- property at Leavellwood is entirely in a wildlife enclosure. The high fence was designed for holding and growing mature, trophy whitetails. The soils are primarily the prairie soils associated with the Black Belt, the soils known for producing the highest quality hunting experiences. The acreage has several types of habitat for the wildlife including, some pine plantation, cedar thickets, large open fields, and ample water resources. There are large fields for dove hunts and there are opportunities to hunt turkeys as well.
Lakes- There are approximately 100 acres of lakes that were designed, constructed, and managed to produce the best recreational bass fishing experiences. You have probably seen your favorite anglers fishing on the lakes here on television. More than 30 fishing shows have been produced on these lakes. Each of the 3 large lakes is stocked with Florida Hybrids and F1 Tiger bass. The 3 lakes are: Leavellwood Lake (~35 acres), Sleepy Hollow (~42 acres), and Sawgrass Lake (~30 acres). Sawgrass Lake also has a small island golf green similar to the one on the famed 17th hole at the TPC at Sawgrass. Sleepy Hollow recently produced one monster bass that weighed in at over 15 lbs! The lakes are intensively managed, stocked with bream and forage fish, and are on a regimen of fertilizer to maintain the healthiest water quality. Each of the lakes have boat ramps for unloading and boat houses for docking and recharging your boat.
Leavellwood Lodge- The main lodge at Leavellwood is just the right mix of rustic and luxurious. The walls in the large great room are covered with trophy mounts, pictures, and memorabilia that help you connect with the property. The lodge has 5 bedrooms, each with a private bath. There is a well-supplied commercial kitchen and large pantry area. There is a second, large seating area that has more of an outdoor feel for a relaxing afternoon watching your favorite sports team. The large stone fireplace invites you to sit in the comfortable great room and recount the stories of your recent hunting adventures. The long dining table has a unique light fixture, a beautiful canoe, lighting the setting for your exquisite meals. Beside the lodge is a large 2,000 square foot Outdoor Pavillion. The pavillion is screened, and is well-lit, perfect for outdoor entertaining. Many weddings, receptions, parties, and other events have been held at the lodge and pavillion.
Owner’s Lodge- The owners have recently constructed their private residence, which is a beautiful 2 bedroom home with a large great room and open concept. There is a glassed seating area that can be opened to allow for enjoying good food and fellowship in pleasant temperatures. The two bedrooms each have their own suite for privacy.
Other Improvements- In addition to the main lodge and owner’s residence, there is also a caretaker’s home. This nice home can be used for your property manager. There are two large equipment buildings and shops, able to house all of the equipment needed to maintain this fine property. There is a horse stable, with multiples stalls for those equestrian lovers. The stable also has an apartment with bathroom. There is a deer breeding pen and facility on the property. The deer in the breeding pens have already been sold, and are not included in the sale of the property.
