The ChattaValley Farm is approximately 370 beautiful acres on the Chattahoochee River, uniquely located inside the city limits of Valley, Alabama and less than 2 miles from Interstate 85. Geographically, its location is directly between Montgomery, AL and Atlanta, GA, just 30 minutes from Auburn University.As a recreational property, it does not get much better or convenient than this! The more than 1 mile of Chattahoochee River frontage enables year-round activities from fishing to kayaking and offers breathtaking views for a homesite. One can easily envision a homesite or two overlooking the river with the privacy of 370 acres to recreate and enjoy year around. The property has gentle rolling topography with diverse stands of intensively managed timber varying in age from recently planted seedlings to mature sawtimber. This diversity creates an ideal habitat for wildlife, evidenced by the number of deer seen on the property. Food plots are already in place with a well maintained internal road system to easily navigate the entire property.Hunting is exceptional as evidenced by the monster bucks on camera. Deer, ducks, turkey, dove, and small game hunting can all be enjoyed here. While the property is very convenient and close to amenities, its end-of-the-road access is extremely private and gives one the feeling of being far away from it all.While the recreational attributes are outstanding, the property's proximity to I-85 and abundant access to the Chattahoochee River create unique opportunities for development. One could develop a private gated community with large 2 - 5 acre lots with private access to the river. The property is also a prime candidate for a conservation easement that could provide substantial tax benefits while protecting the land and the Chattahoochee River forever. Often, a few homesites will be held out of the conservation easement and the balance of land is placed into the easement. This scenario allows someone to build a home, own and use the land, and offset the cost of the land from tax savings received from the conservation easement.Over a decade ago, Jon Kohler & Associates developed our Social Storm Program to help investors buy and sell properties that exemplify the self-sufficient, independent living that is the basis for freedoms that made our Country great. Fast forward to today, and we've been reminded how quickly bad things can in fact happen. The outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe was a stark reminder of just how imperative a safe place to retreat and/or social distance, or simply a peaceful place to relax, can be. ChattaValley encompasses everything "the way it used to be". The timeless attributes that make it a special place are driven by location, privacy, and water.There are few properties left that offer the convenience, privacy, and fun of ChattaValley.
