Recreation and Timber
The property is 951 acres (MOL) located southeast of Tallahassee and bordered by Ted Turner’s Avalon Plantation and the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area (State of Florida). The property has multiple ponds, including the 4-acre fish pond by the living area. Bailey Mill Creek runs through the property as well, providing a constant water source for wildlife. The wetlands on the property are primarily in mature, heavily stocked hardwood timber. There are some upland hardwoods as well, good for mast production for wildlife. Several food plots are already established and the deer and turkey on the property have been under management with supplemental feeding and light hunting pressure for years.
The upland pine has been harvested, however full upland reforestation has already been contracted and paid for and is scheduled for the end of 2021. This will leave the owner with a fully-stocked commercial grade timber investment growing for the future. The property are protected by a conservation easement, with significantly reduces yearly taxes and has protected wetland areas leaving them with ancient cypress, mature hardwood and pine for a unique ecology quickly disappearing in Florida. The easement allows for total management of timber (including harvesting) and full hunting rights.
The land is in Jefferson County just 20 minutes from the city limits of Tallahassee and only 45 minutes from the lighthouse and boat launch in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Orlando and Tampa are only 3.5 hours away.
