Duck Cove is a 322+/- Acre waterfront property with 2+ miles of shoreline along Waxahatchee Creek, a large navigable waterway off of Lay Lake (Coosa River). Duck Cove is one of the last remaining large waterfront properties in Shelby County. This unique property is only 45 minutes to Birmingham and 20 minutes to Interstate 65 at Calera, making this opportunity extremely attractive for both developers and recreational buyers. While you’re only a short drive to the amenities available in Calera or Birmingham, the property is very private, surrounded by large landowners, and gives one the feeling they are far away from it all.

With over 2 miles of shoreline, it's the ideal year-around family getaway, offering excellent fishing, swimming, boating in the summer and great hunting, trail riding, and hiking in the fall and winter. Build a lodge with incredible views to watch the sunset from atop the bluff looking west across Waxahatchee Creek. The timber is mature throughout most of property with a great road system for navigating the property. This is one of those once in a lifetime opportunities that pleases the entire family, an easy drive to big city amenities, great outdoor recreation year around, and a clean slate to design your dream property your way!

While the recreational components are simply unmatched, the proximity to Birmingham, and a Shelby County address creates unique opportunities for development. One can easily envision estate-sized lots with year-round activities on Lay Lake. Alternatively, an equity membership structure would be attractive, offering lots for sale with a common interest in the remaining land for recreational purposes.

Shelby County remains one of Alabama’s fastest growing counties with a 44% population growth from 2000 – 2020 and is expected to continue it’s growth into the future with a projected 11,280 homes built by 2027. A conservation easement does not exist here for a reason, and it’s because the development opportunities are real. This is one of Shelby County’s last remaining large waterfront recreational and development properties. For more information, contact Tim James, Jr. at 334-652-4517.
