REDUCED! This 917+/- acre estate is one of absolute beauty and has every amenity you can imagine. Once you drive through the white gates at the manicured entrance, you will quickly realize that you have just entered a very special place. The winding drive leading to the home passes by century old live oaks, your own pond with a walking bridge and gorgeous views of the property. The home features 5,005 square feet of elegance with two master suites, two additional bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a massive family room and den as well as offices, a large kitchen and courtyard. Built in 1978 and expanded in 1995, this home has everything that one can imagine. The home sits on one of the highest points on the property and the views are beautiful looking over the pond, the horse pastures and stables and the towering live oaks, it literally takes your breath away. To the side of the home you will find the stables which feature 6 stalls (5 stalls are enclosed and 1 stall is open to the outside) with a half bath, a large feed room, tack room and a full size wash room. The stables were built in 2005 and are of first class construction with concrete floors, floor drains and turnouts. For the horse lovers, you will be right at home! Next to the stables is the 4,000 square foot barn and full workshop. Complete with rolling 12 ft. doors, this shop has all of the storage you need for your ATVs, 4-wheelers and anything else you would like to cover. The workshop features workbenches and storage shelving and plenty of room for any and all repairs or projects your heart desires. For your equipment, there is a steel 40 X 70 storage facility. Just in case you ever lose power, the CAT generator (85KV) is on stand-by to run the entire compound. Now that you have a picture of the residence and building complex, lets take a look at the remaining 900+/- acres of paradise. Just north of the home, winding through the massive live oaks, is the 5+/- acre lake, fully stocked with bass and bream. The lake has produced trophy fish for generations, has its own pier, and provides excellent swimming and entertainment for the entire family. This tract is one of the finest managed timber tracts and recreational playgrounds you are going to find. The family has strategically managed this property for timber and game for generations, and it is abundantly clear once you take a look around. There are multiple fields that have been maintained for hay production which are surrounded by mature hardwood timber, and all are fenced and cross fenced with quality fencing. The road system throughout the entire property is probably the finest that I have ever seen. I would estimate there are over 20 miles of road system, all connected and strategically placed with hunting and food plots in mind. Two live creeks provide water for game and all creeks have road bridges in place. Also you will find several stock ponds to supply game hydration. There are 12 established food plots; the deer heard is phenomenal and has been intensely managed by DMAP as well as the same caretaker family for more than 15 years! Needless to say, the turkey population is abundant too! You are going to think you are in a game preserve once you see this place. Approximately 30-35 acres in beautiful rolling pastures are used for grazing and hay production. There is also a 40 X 80 hay storage barn. The property is being offered for sale for the first time since 1853, and if you and your family truly want a place to change your lives, you should take a look! It is sometimes difficult to describe the full beauty and potential of a property, and this is one of them. If you or any family members remember how meticulous the McRae family kept their stores, they did the same with their land. It has taken generations to develop this property into its current condition and it is something to see. As you traverse the property, you will be amazed at the timber volume of the mature pine and hardwood saw log volume throughout the entire property. Not only is it a sportsman's paradise, it is an incredible timber investment for the savvy landowner. As stated earlier, this timber has been very well managed for generations.
