Perdido Bluff

Perdido Bluff is a 3,636 acre plantation, a beautiful maritime forest located between Pensacola, Florida and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Boasting almost 3.5 miles of bay waterfront, it has 2.5 miles of both sides of the Blackwater River and 3/4 mile on the Perdido River/upper Bay. The property also features a one of a kind 70+/- acre coastal lake connected to the bay and three additional lakes. Significant pre-development work has been complete; preliminary approval for 900 private lots and a sales center and roads are in place. The uplands are exceptional with fire-managed wiregrass and mature longleaf pine, live oaks, magnolias scattered throughout, and great stands of planted pine. The wildlife is plentiful. The property contains one of the largest stands of wiregrass/longleaf in the region. With less than a 40 minute boat ride to Perdido Pass, the water amenities are unbelievable. This is one of the best large investment opportunities in the Southeast.

Perdido Buff

"At one time there were 93 million acres of longleaf and wiregrass. Today, there is less than 3 million. Perdido Bluff has some of the best examples of riverfront and coastal longleaf left in Coastal Alabama. The amount of native ground cover here is remarkable not only for this region but anywhere!”

Perdido Bluff
The last best, large undeveloped property on the Gulf Coast; this plantation was meticulously groomed and pre-developed by one of the largest developers in the South to be not only a recreational showplace but the next great coastal conservation community. Untimely circumstances have placed this gem of a planation on the market and made it the real estate opportunity of a generation. Personally overseen by the late Alex Baker, formerly of the famed AIG/Baker and later Blackwater Resources, this 3,636+/- acres was called “Blackwater” and slated to be a signature community. Significant planning & major pre-development work is complete; a sales center and roads are in place and preliminary approval for 900 private lots, a subdivision on upper Perdido Bay; all located in what is now the fastest growing coastal county in America.

"This is arguably the last great large undeveloped intercostal property along the entire Gulf coast of Florida or Alabama and it’s in one of the fastest growing counties in the Southeast. Strategically located on the Alabama side of Perdido Bay in Baldwin County which boasts majority of all of the growth in the entire State of Alabama and region. This property could be a beautiful conservation subdivision or left as a plantation and one of the most valuable conservation easement opportunities in the entire Southeast. This plantation is one of the best large acreage investment opportunities in the Southeast."

Perdido Bluff Plantation is located in Baldwin County which is the fastest growing county in Alabama by population total population growth, is tied for the 8th fastest growing MSA in the nation, and has had a 43% population growth since 2000,. Located just north of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama, it is less than a 25-minute drive to white sand beaches, Pensacola Florida hospitals and shopping, and only 40 minutes from Fairhope, named one of the most notable small towns in America. This is an irreplaceable opportunity for owning one of the, if not THE, last best, undeveloped plantation on the Gulf Coast. Priced at only $15,000,000, similar per acre to what Thomasville, Albany, or Lowcountry quail plantations are trading for, this plantation can be used for recreation, conservation, or developed, or a combination thereof. We have extensive plans, studies, and mapping, including mapping of every large undeveloped tract on the Florida or Alabama Gulf Coast (there are only three and one with a lesser location can be currently bought for $50,000,000).

With an abundance of wildlife in an incredible natural setting, this property could be the next beautiful coastal conservation community or left as a plantation and one of the most valuable conservation easement opportunities in the entire Southeast. This plantation is one of the best large acreage investment opportunities in the Southeast.

“The plantation investment opportunity of a generation! Priced per acre for only what the typical Thomasville, Albany or SC plantations command one can buy not only a great waterfront plantation but one of the top three last best undeveloped intercostal properties on the Gulf of Mexico! Whether its conservation, recreation or investment this is an unmatchable opportunity for $4,126 per acre.”
