Sugar Lake Plantation may be the epitome of a Social Storm™/Wealth Preservation property. If the world is a better place tomorrow, this is a good asset to own. If it's a worse place tomorrow, this is an even better asset to own. Either way, it's a win-win.

Good opportunities come at the most inconvenient of times. It took today's world uncertainty to get this property on the market and available and then value-priced. This is one of those rare opportunities people are constantly asking us about. Being able to step up and own a 2,180 acre property with fertile land, rolling hills, located about mid-way between Atlanta and Birmingham, in a safe and scenic neighborhood, and with a private 160 acre lake for only $3,600,000 ($1,651/acre) is what capitalizing on opportunities is all about."

Sugar Lake scores exceedingly high on our Social Storm(tm)/Wealth Preservation matrix. Preserving wealth is very difficult and nothing ranks as high in importance as family health and safety. This property excels in almost every single criteria and is exactly the right type of diverse asset to own in today's environment. This property can store wealth in cattle, timber, water, wildlife, and crops, among other ways that include safety and security. Contact us for our full analysis of Sugar Lake as a Social Storm™/Wealth Management property.

We are proud to offer one of the most amazing private lake properties we have ever had the opportunity to sell - an amazing 160 acre lake with 2,180 acres. For $3,600,000 ($1,651/acre), it would be very difficult to find a better buy in today's world.
