The investment potential here is really two different opportunities. 2,000 acres of this property have been re-zoned to Mixed-Use allowing up to 2,050 residential units and various densities of development while 1,500 acres already have a conservation easement in place. The property adjoins Big Shoals State Park in the Suwannee Valley Corridor and is a high profile candidate for further conservation and tax deductions. A thoughtfully designed development along its miles of shorelines and natural, well-managed uplands is also a possibility or a combination of both conservation and development. The property is 45% uplands, 37% wetlands and other non-timber producing acres and 18% lakes. The lakes on the property range in size from 24 – 330 acres.
The hunting opportunity should not be underestimated, this property boasts significant populations of migrating waterfowl due to the incredible water on and surrounding the property along with excellent turkey and dove hunting and even some wild quail. The deer hunting is also very good. The old farm site contains numerous old southern live oaks and pecan trees and would be a great site to build your lodge, it does contain an enclosed pole barn at present time with utilities and overlooks one of the lakes.
