LOCATION: Teel Farm is located at 1641 Embry Bend Road in Lincoln, Alabama. It’s about 35 miles east of Birmingham on roughly 200 unrestricted acres along Logan Martin Lake. Embry Bend Road runs through the Farm and the Farm also has access to Macon Road. The Honda plant in Lincoln and the Talladega International Speedway are close by. From Atlanta, its a two hour ride on I-20 to Lincoln and about 3 miles from there.
FACILITIES: Three houses are located on the Farm; a 3 br 2ba lake house, a 1br 1ba cabin and a 3br 2ba farm house. There’s also three barns, a hobby/repair shop, a shop adjacent to the farm house, a concrete boat launch and a boat house with a gazebo. Most of the 60 roughly sixty acres of pasture are fenced and crossed fenced and there’s also a small year-round pond. An island is included with the property: one of the very few privately owned islands anywhere along the Coosa river.
UTILITIES: A great well is very important for country living and Teel Farm is blessed to have a well that provides crystal clear water to the houses and other locations on the property. Over 300 feet deep, the well’s water is filtered naturally through limestone so its always clear and cold. The well has always had plenty of water too; even during the worst droughts. Should more water be needed for future development, the city of Lincoln is planning to install an 8 inch water line along Embry Bend Road. The Farm is served by Coosa Valley Electric and has high speed internet from Centurylink. ATT and Verizon cell service are also available.
FARMING: Teel Farm has been in the Teel family since 1951 and has been farmed continuously since that time. Most of the pasture land is devoted to free range cattle or for hay. Teel Farm also has a small herd of goats, free range chickens and Talladega County’s only buffalo. Approximately 120 acres is timberland and plots for hunting deer and turkey.
INVESTMENT: Logan Martin Dam was constructed on the Coosa River in 1965 and created an approximately 46 mile long lake. Teel Farm has roughly 2 miles of shoreline along this Lake. Prior to 1965, the property on Teel Farm that was to be on the Lake shore was built up into potential lake lots above the flood level. The Farm shoreline is protected by an 800 foot poured concrete wall, a 180 foot timber wall and roughly 2000 tons of rip rap.
