The Bluffs 

The Bluffs is a 1200 acre gated residential development located in Cedar Bluff, Alabama, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain Range. Our development is actually on a mountain peninsula which extends into the 30,000 acre, 52 mile-long Weiss Lake. This unusual location allows us to develop each of our home sites such that all have a water view, with most also having a view of the surrounding mountains.

Weiss Lake Real Estate at The Bluffs of WeissThe Bluffs has been labeled a Sustainable Living development due to its emphasis on community gardens, orchards, and other sources of locally grown food. The orchards and gardens for The Bluffs originated many years ago, when the then-owners used the rich flat-land soil and adjacent spring fed creek to nurture the gardens and orchard which surrounded their house. The surviving pecan, pear and apple trees from that orchard have been rehabilitated and supplemented with 28 compatible varieties of apple, peach, plum, pear, and fig trees. Additionally, blueberry bushes and grape and muscadine vines have been planted.

The garden spot has been restored and an irrigation system put in place utilizing the clean clear waters of the nearby creek.
