Over the covered bridge and through the woods, to a magical home we go.

Situated on almost 150 tree-covered acres in Alabaster, this immaculate custom home known as Thacker Ranch with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms makes the perfect family headquarters. In addition to the main house, there is a 37-acre lake stocked with bass, catfish, crappie, and bream; a dog-trot-style cabin; a caretaker’s cabin; a chicken house; a pool and pool house with kitchen, bathroom, and storage; two attached garages; and numerous other high-end features.

Made for entertaining, the main house welcomes guests with a soaring two-story foyer featuring marble floors, an oversized crystal chandelier, and open stairwell. The main floor’s spacious formal living room, dining room, family room, gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, study, garden room, sunroom, and guest bedroom with en suite bathroom, tall ceilings, marble and hardwood floors, custom millwork, and outdoor terraces that overlook the immaculately landscaped grounds, resort-style pool, and lake. The main floor also has a powder room and laundry room.


The gourmet kitchen is a home chef’s dream with exquisite marble countertops, high-end stainless appliances, walk-in pantry, and cozy breakfast room.

Upstairs, the large master suite and luxurious master marble bathroom feature a custom walk-in closet, a sitting room/office, den with wet bar and fireplace, and covered porch for enjoying morning coffee. Two more bedrooms and another bathroom complete the upstairs’ layout.

The property boasts a gated entrance for privacy, a charming covered bridge, and a second service entrance. The rustic caretaker’s cabin has front and rear covered porches complete with porch swing, a combination living room/bedroom, a bathroom with shower, and a space-saving kitchen. The charming guest cabin also has front and rear covered porches overlooking the lake with a built-in charcoal grill. One bedroom with a fireplace and a loft bunkroom make plenty of comfortable space for visitors. An open-concept kitchen/living room/dining room with fireplace and a bathroom round out the space.

This much-loved family home has been the center of family memories for almost 30 years. In addition to countless cookouts, birthday parties, family celebrations, and holidays, the home has even hosted weddings and wedding receptions.

 “It’s hard to believe that a property like this exists so conveniently located in Alabaster,” says listing agent Stephanie Robinson of RealtySouth. “It’s such a special place—the owners have loved the property and taken special care of it.”

Homeowner Jamie Thacker is thrilled for a new family to start making memories in this special place. “When we first drove over the covered bridge, it literally took my breath away,” Thacker says. “We have loved every day here—it’s truly a magical place. We enjoyed the beauty of each season and all that the property has to offer. I am excited for another family to love it as much as we have.”
