Bailey's Mill: 436 Acres in the Red Hills
Formerly the North Portion of an Iconic Red Hills Quail Plantation, Groomed for Wildlife and Aesthetics, and featuring a 10 acre Lake and Floodable Duck Pond
Bailey's Mill is a 436-acre recreational estate located just east of Tallahassee on US HWY 90. It is formerly the northern portion of an iconic Red Hills quail plantation, Oldfields Plantation, groomed for wildlife and aesthetics. It is located in the prestigious Tallahassee/Thomasville plantation belt in a very beautiful area.
Bailey’s Mill has two creeks and two ponds, with large rolling pastures bordered by enormous hardwoods that have been manicured to a park-like understory.
Located just 12 miles from Tallahassee on US HWY 90, just east of the Leon County Line outside Tallahassee, Bailey’s Mill is only about six miles to I-10 at Route 59, 13 miles to the I-10 ramp at US90/Publix, and 5.5 miles to historic Monticello. The property has approximately one mile total frontage on US 90 and Tallamont Drive. Generations ago, Fred Mahan landscaped the entire drive from Monticello to Tallahassee with over 40,000 crepe myrtles and other ornamental trees and is a visual delight for travelers still today.
Bailey’s Mill is across the street from the 6,200-acre Lake Miccosukee and a little over a mile from Letchworth-Love Mounds State Park. Famous plantations such as Ring Oak, Oldfields, Love Ridge and Mays Pond are in the immediate vicinity.
Bailey's Mill is highly regarded for its rolling topography (150 foot elevations), clear creeks, and mature hardwood and mixed pine forests. It undoubtedly has one of the most beautiful upland hardwood forests in North Florida. It has two ponds. There is bountiful wildlife throughout the property. It currently has two horseback quail courses, dove fields, and numerous deer stands. It has an established trophy deer program. The recreational hunting on this property is fabulous.
"Bailey’s Mill, like almost 50% of all Red Hills plantations, is protected by a conservation easement and will forever be in the ranks as a high quality recreational hunting property. As such, the seller is financially motivated to ensure it has the best in outdoor recreation while at the same time the buyer does not have to pay a premium for the prime location and convenience east of Tallahassee."
