  • Located on a protected canopy road, designated as one of the country's most scenic roadways
  • Approximately half of the property is protected by a conservation easement with Tall Timbers; however, due to its Leon County address we are confident if a conservation easement were placed on the remaining acreage it would yield one of the highest diminutions of value of any plantation in the Red Hills. We cannot emphasize this enough. Please contact our office for more details.

The Investment

Investors from outside of the area have sought these lands at Chemonie for nearly 200 years now. These fertile soils first attracted absentee land owners from Savannah, Georgia. Years later, wealthy northerners flocked to the Red Hills to escape the winters and socialize over some of the finest quail hunting in the country.

Chemonie is among about 120 other plantations in the Red Hills. It is rare for a plantation to change hands, and only a very few sell or are available at any given time. What sets Chemonie apart is its northeast Leon County location. This is not only the highly desirable Florida side of the belt for tax reasons, but it also is also on the most desirable path of growth in Tallahassee.


Includes established red hills quail plantation, two 30-acre lakes, 7,000+/- square foot main house, four bedroom guest house, kennels, stables, and more!
