Foundation Ranch, Including Hunting Land, Homes, Stables, and Log Cabins, to Sell in Oct. 21 Auction

ANNISTON, AL--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  A 100-acre Alabama retreat with two homes, stables, four log cabins and a private lake will sell at auction Thursday, Oct. 21, with Albert Burney Auction Company managing the sale.

"This will sell in six parcels, ranging from 4.92 acres to 28.72 acres. Bidders may bid on any combination of parcels or on the property as an entirety," said Warren Ward, president of Albert Burney.

Centrally located between Birmingham, Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Montgomery, the property is suitable for a private residence, a corporate or church retreat, or a hunting property. The two land parcels and the parcel with the cabins all border the Choccolocco Wildlife Management Area, providing access to 46,550 acres of deer, dove and turkey hunting.

"Because of the way the parcels are arranged, with the land parcels and cabins bordering the WMA, it's quite possible that someone might purchase one of the two homes along with the land parcels for use as a personal retreat and hunting property," said Ward.

Another possibility is to purchase one of the homes along with the cabins for use as an outfitter business, corporate retreat or church campground, he said. "Even the stables could be integrated into a retreat by an organization that might want to offer horseback riding to guests," he said.

The 10,000-square-foot main house, on 22.63 acres, has four full baths, two half baths, an exercise room, and an in-ground game room. The second home, on 7.68 acres, has three full baths and a sun room and borders the parcel with the cabins. The equestrian facility, located between the two homes, has six large stalls, an office and a living area.

The auction will take place on Thursday, Oct. 21, and auction representatives will be available for property inspections beginning Oct. 8 and continuing through the auction date. Individuals seeking more information may call the auction company at 800-434-1654 or visit
