A Sought-After Area:
Some of the oldest known evidence of human habitation in North America is documented in the Aucilla River in what is internationally known as the Middle Aucilla Project. Located on the border of both the Apalachee and Timucuan nations, it was a central trading area and the site of two of the original Spanish Missions. In the 1620's it was the ranch of the first Governor of Florida and many believe was one of the first wheat fields in the new world. This area has been highly sought after by conservationists and sportsmen alike. Between the state holdings and Federal refuge, the vast majority of the Aucilla River and adjacent coastline on the Gulf of Mexico is forever preserved. Aucilla River In-Holding is one of the few privately held properties on the entire Aucilla River basin area. The Tallahassee/Thomasville quail belt, also known as the Red Hills, runs from the Aucilla River basin to the east and the Ochlocknee River to the west. This unique concentration of quail plantations is world renown. Since 1888, wealthy individuals have sought out land in this area for its beauty and ability to produce quail. Today, the Red Hills contain the largest contiguous group of private landholdings in the country and a who's who among famous landowners and wealthy businessmen.
It is practically impossible to recreate the recreational experience and value for any less money. The challenge is that this $300,000 riverfront investment will likely outhunt and out enjoy most people’s $1.5M properties. Also, unlike most properties of this size and price, the food plots, roads, and trails are intact and little needs to be done. A property of this size is in the sweet spot of the super-wealthy wanting to pick up another entertainment venue with unique frontage on the exclusive Aucilla River or the person that wants to own as much recreation for the dollar.
35 minutes east of Tallahassee off Apalachee Parkway near Lamont in the middle of three major landholdings; Turkey Scratch Plantation (Foster), Three Creeks(Davidson), and Reams Family Holdings (Reams). SRWMD also has holdings in the area. The Aucilla River runs for a half mile through the property.
Because acreage on the Aucilla River is almost impossible to find at any price. For less than $1M, it is impossible to find a recreational property with this many attributes anywhere, much less on a great river. This is also the perfect “Social Storm™” property. This is the perfect place to have an Off the Grid cabin. If the world becomes a better place, this property becomes a better investment, but if the world becomes worse, this property becomes a great investment. Otherwise, it’s a super beautiful and fun place to hunt. This property is the perfect hedge.
Like over 50% of the plantations in the Red Hills, and most properties on the Aucilla River, this property, too, has a conservation easement on it. The restrictions are minimal. One house, barn, outbuilding, etc., can be built on it and the property cannot be subdivided. The hardwoods along the river cannot be clear cut (not that anyone would want to). In exchange, the property taxes are zero and the purchase price is lower than a typical riverfront property.
Broker has an ownership interest in the LLC that owns the property.
