National Land Realty Announces Famous Ray Scott Property is Sold

GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

National Land Realty (NLR), a full-service real estate brokerage company, announced that Jerry Joe Ingram, NLR partner, represented outdoor icon, Ray Scott, in the sale of his legendary 200-acre estate in Pintlala, Ala. Scott is the founder of Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) and the Whitetail Institute of North America.

The property created by Scott, known as Legacy Lakes, has three lakes and a high-fence enclosure to Canadian-stock whitetail. The property’s centerpiece, a 55-acre lake, has been featured in several fishing shows and was named the best private bass lake in America by “Outdoor Life Magazine” in 2010.

The property’s main lake, dubbed the Presidents Lake by the press, has had many famous visitors come to fish it including presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Many of the country’s top angling pros, various celebrities, Nashville entertainers and business CEOs have a wet line at the lake. Rick Clunn, bass fishing legend and winner of four Bassmaster Classic Tournaments, also caught his personal best, a 13 to 15-pound fish, on the lake.

Scott bought the land many years before recognizing the lake potential of the rolling acreage about 15 miles south of Montgomery in Pintlala. He finished developing the property in 1986 when he and his wife, Susan, moved into their recently finished house.

“It didn’t take me long to recognize what he had put into the estate,” Ingram said. “As an outdoorsman, I really appreciated Mr. Scott’s philosophy about the land and its resources. He believes the land is only on loan to us, and in being good stewards now we can ensure our resources not only for ourselves but for future generations as well.”

“It’s tough to leave, but I won’t be far away,” Scott said. “I’ll be across the hill, on a secluded side of the property, in a small cottage on an old 16-acre lake. It’s perfect for me and my wife and our two dogs. Plus, I think I’ve gained an outstanding neighbor, and if he wants, I’ll show him a few honey holes.”

“Recreational properties of this size and magnitude can be tough to move at times,” said Aaron Graham, NLR president. “But through our exceptional marketing methods, we were able to locate a buyer for Scott and make a deal where both parties were extremely satisfied.”
