The Cahaba River property is 101 acres with 1500’ on the Cahaba River and uniquely located just 15 minutes from downtown Birmingham. An additional 78+/- contiguous acres is also available with 1800' on both sides of the Cahaba River. If purchased together, one would own 179+/- acres with over ½ mile of frontage along the Cahaba River. Situated adjacent to the intersection of 1-459 and I-20, accessibility doesn’t get much better and its location makes this opportunity extremely attractive for both recreational buyers and developers. While extremely convenient and close to town, the property is very private, and gives one the feeling they are far away from it all. With 1500’ on the scenic Cahaba River, this property is pure recreation that will keep the outdoor enthusiast busy year around. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, hiking, & hunting can all be done here and the wildlife is plentiful. A beautiful bluff overlooks the Cahaba River that would be an ideal home site. This property has beautiful rolling topography with nearly every acre in timber which gives the property a much larger private feel. Large surrounding landowners provide security to the property and largely contributes to its privacy. The timber is primarily open stands of natural pine and hardwood with pockets of thick cover that create great habitat for the wildlife. A nice internal road system is in place and provides access to most of the property.

While the recreational components are outstanding, the properties close proximity to Birmingham creates unique opportunities for development or the protection from development through a conservation easement. One can easily envision a private gated community with large 2-5 acre lots with private access to the Cahaba River. Alternatively, a conservation easement here could provide substantial tax benefits while protecting the land and Cahaba River from future development. Often times, a home site will be held out of the conservation easement and the balance of the land is placed into a conservation easement. This scenario would allow someone to build a home, own and use the land for recreation, and offset the cost of the land by the tax savings received from the conservation easement.

Approximately 80 acres of the property is located in Irondale with the remaining 20 acres in Birmingham. Both tracts (101 & 79 acre) are in an area that has been designated as an opportunity zone by the governor’s office and offers tax benefits to those investing in these areas.

Additional 78+/- contiguous acres available for $1,733,000. This would be 179 total acres offered for $4,233,000
