This property is one of the most scenic available in Estill County, KY. It boasts a beautiful combination of bottom land and forested hillsides adjacent to Station Camp Creek. For the family looking for a secluded rural homestead in Estill County, you still have quick access to Richmond, KY for employment or shopping purposes. There are potential homesites in the cleared portion as well as in the forested part of the property. The southern-most forested section has numerous wide benches that would make excellent cabin sites.
Recreational opportunities are abundant with significant deer population, fishing and boating on Station Camp Creek, and trails for ATV exploration. The forested portion of the property was select harvested over 20 years ago, leaving many healthy large trees behind. As a result, there is a fair amount of marketable timber on site. Tree species include White Oak, Red Oak, multiple types of Hickory, Beech, Black Walnut, Hemlock and White Pine.
Limestone cliffs border the top of each hillside, offering hours of exploration by young people and recreational climbing for Red River Gorge enthusiasts. In fact, Red River Gorge is an easy 30 minute drive.
Lots of history on this property as this was the center of Alumbaugh, Kentucky and still contains the old Alumbaugh store that once served local families for miles around. Available for the first time in well over a hundred years, parcels like this are a rarity. A portion of the bottom land is declared by FEMA to be in the 100 year flood plain, due to proximity to Station Camp Creek. This bottom land is still useable for hay or crop production.
