Ask Tim James, Jr.
Artemis Farms is the ultimate in luxury recreation and offers best-in-class hunting, fishing, and amenities. It's conveniently located in Macon County, Alabama, just 40 minutes to Auburn University, 30 minutes to Montgomery, and 2 hours to Atlanta. The land consist of 1,015 +/- acres of beautifully manicured grounds with park-like hardwoods, mature pine stands, fenced pastureland for cattle, lush greenfields, and incredible water resources. Entering the gate at Artemis Farms, you immediately notice the vision and attention to detail the owner had for the property. Artemis Lake is the 38+/- acre focal water feature designed to allow for a peninsula for future construction offering 270-degree breathtaking views and with underground power and water already in place and a beautiful boat house already constructed. With over 7,500 ft of shoreline, additional cottages could easily be accommodated around the lake with equally incredible views. Professionally built & managed by Southeastern Pond and currently at full pool, the lake is stocked with tiger bass, bream, shad, and other baitfish. It is expected that the average fish will weigh at or exceeding 5 lbs or more by this fall. Every detail in the design & construction of Artemis Lake was deliberate from the overbuilt dam complete with erosion control structures and concrete spillway. Further to the south of the property, constructed in 2019 and overlooking the 4-acre pond is the 2500 SF Cabin with 4 bedrooms 2.5 baths, covered carport with a large storage area above, and an outdoor pavilion with a fireplace and cooking space. The cabin has GE monogram appliances, a mud room with a FEMA certified safe room for valuables and can withstand a category 4/5 tornado, and a whole house Generac generator. The outdoor space and manicured pine plantations surrounding the cabin are an ideal setting for fall weekends with a ready to plant 10-acre dove field just off the back porch. Family dove shoots in years past have been excellent! The deer and turkey hunting in this area is excellent and almost a brand unto itself. The diversity of habitat and very low hunting pressure has kept the game moving during daylight hours and on the property year around. Artemis Farms is currently managed for trophy bucks and turkey but has exceptional habitat for quail and is well suited for a gentlemen's quail course around the lake. The old growth hardwood forest throughout the property is simply breathtaking with gentle rolling topography that transitions from upland pines to hardwood bottomland. There are very nice shooting houses on most greenfields and numerous ladder stands and deer feeders throughout the property. A well kept road system allows for year round easy navigation all over the property.Artemis has four attractive entrances protected by electronically controlled brick columned gates making coming and going very convenient. The southern portion of the property is used as a small cattle operation with approximately 100 acres in fenced pasture and divided by Dicks creek. A pole barn sits on top of the hill overlooking the pasture that houses a functional catch-pen, nursing pen, and head chute area as well as an apartment with a full bath. There is also a 40x100 enclosed shop with electric roll up doors used for equipment storage. An extensive list of equipment is included in the sale including tractors, implements, and more. Although many of the plantations and high quality properties in the Union Springs Plantation Belt are already protected by a conservation easement, one has not yet been placed on Artemis. With utilities already on site, over 7,500 ft of shoreline and additional home sites around the lake make this a particularly valuable candidate.
