The Blue Run Tract offers an attractive array of possible uses - farming, hunting or growing timber. The property features 36 acres of cultivated field, and in the center, a 14-acre lake. The tract is in the Upper Coastal Plain region of southwest Georgia and is bordered by agricultural land on nearly all sides. There is 3,500 feet of paved frontage along Georgia Highway 37, and 2,100 feet of dirt frontage along Timmons Lane on the eastern boundary. Internal access is provided by trails on the edges of the fields and a woods road in the timbered area. One of the trails leads right to the lake where there appears to have been an old boat ramp.
The combination of agricultural fields, pockets of forest and the lake create a serene, rural and beautiful environment on the Blue Run Tract. With existing and active cultivated fields, this tract is ideally suited to continue as an agricultural property. The forested areas contain mature timber and could be harvested and replanted in pine to increase production. Currently, the woods provide a sanctuary for local wildlife since so many neighboring tracts are mostly open fields. The 14-acre lake is a good opportunity for water fowl hunting as well as an interesting spot for kayaking and canoeing. There is an old house and barn which have been uninhabited and out of use for many years.
The tract has about 40 acres of timberland, of which approximately 20 acres are lowland. The other 20 or so acres are “fully operable” with mature timber and could be harvested at any time. After harvest, these areas could be replanted with genetically improved pine to make them more productive and produce timber income in the future.
