One of the Best Social Storm™ Property Settings we Have Seen Come for Sale in Quite Some Time
Cypress Hill is a gorgeous 198+/- acre high-quality recreational property located in Madison County, Florida. Purchased as an open canvas, every acre of this immaculate property was thoughtfully curated by the current landowners for optimal recreational enjoyment, luxury living, and beauty. The property is quite diverse, with rolling topography, moss-draped live oaks, pecan and timber allees, multiple ponds/lakes, cypress trees, open parklike areas, and more. This property is ready to step in to and enjoy.
From the gate to the drive in, to the new build home, additional accommodations, and more, no detail went overlooked upon design. Knowing one day the view would be indescribable, the landowner chose to plant both a pecan grove allee, along with planted timber stands splitting the road just beyond. As the drive turns through, it eventually opens to a large parklike area. Overlooking moss-draped oaks, a stunning 5,395 square foot, 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 2-1/2-bath home offers front porch views of a cypress-laden, 15+/-acre lake, with rolling hills enveloping the water just beyond.
“This is the second property that we have represented for this landowner. He has a knack for creating family destinations and adding amenities that really accentuate the land.” - Jon Kohler
Classic southern charm from the exterior, with modern amenities, and top-of-the-line craftsmanship inside, the home is a true showstopper. The kitchen is large and made for entertaining, with an open floor plan to the living room and dining area. The stairwell upstairs serves as a design point, lined from floor to ceiling with narrow drawers. There are two master suites with two full baths and two half baths downstairs, with two bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room, and just beyond awaits a stately game room with heart pine floors, ceilings, and walls, a large well-stocked bar for entertaining, and one of the largest wood-burning fireplaces we have seen in our 30-year career.
“It would take every bit of 2 years to build everything that’s here. Coming from a 1.5-year remodel myself, the level of detail and attention the landowner put into this is humbling.” - Jon Kohler
The current landowner loves hosting family and friends for gatherings – as such, tucked away hidden from sight in built-in shelving between the game room and outside pool area, is a doorway, and set of stairs that lead to an incredible approx. 144 sq. ft. wine cellar with built in humidor.
The outside pool area has every amenity one could hope for when it too comes to entertaining. From color-changing lights to the covered outdoor cooking pavilion, complete with green egg, smoker, flat top, and more.
Beyond the pool awaits another entertainment feature. A fully lighted skeet range complete with high and low houses and all five stands. Beyond the skeet range is a smaller ½ acre pond with its own dock. The sun sets just perfectly over this dock, and the current landowners enjoy nightly retreats to the dock.
Enlisting the help of a top aquatic biologist, the 15-acre lake has been dramatically improved. The borders are clear of shrubbery, and accessible lake-round. Trees were removed to ensure the star of the show would be a large cypress slough just across from the private, covered dock with a lift. Fish and wildlife are abundant, with nesting birds flocking to the large cypress heads.
“The wildlife, bird life, and wild game here is everything one would expect from a 1st class high-quality recreational property.” - Jon Kohler
Walking distance from the main lake, is a quaint lake-side gazebo, a tree swing, and a unique, yet equally charming silo-house to accommodate overflow guests. The landowners hand-selected the silo and had it shipped to the property to be converted into its own sleeping quarters. Cozy is an understatement, with pitched, wood-lined walls and a private bath inside the silo.
There are multiple equipment barns onsite, including an 1800 sq. ft. heated and cooled enclosed storage barn, two open-air pole barns (15x20 and 10x20), three lean-tos (at the silo, shooting range, and low-house), and another 700 sq. ft. heated/cooled storage barn that was also converted into its own living quarters with a front porch overlooking the chicken coop, and its own private kitchen/bath. Lodging options don’t end there, as there are also 4 RV hook ups with power and water.
Wildlife is abundant, from well-stocked fisheries, and wood ducks, to ample deer and turkey. A third body of water lies to the right of the main home, and a deer stand lies on top of a hill for the hunter.
Cypress Hill’s Social Storm™ attributes are highly ranked. With its dynamic recreation, this Social Storm property belongs to a unique asset class with key property attributes that investors gravitate to for safety in bad times and buy for a recreation reward in good times.
“This is one of the best Social Storm™ Property settings we have seen come for sale in quite some time. This is exactly the type of place where one would want to spend the next pandemic, or worse.” - Jon Kohler
As for location, Cypress Hill is ideal. Located just 15 minutes to Madison, Florida and 20 minutes Quitman, Georgia - both charming towns with great shops and dining - the property is easy to get to. It is only 45 minutes to Valdosta, GA , 50 minutes to Thomasville, Georgia, and just one hour to Tallahassee, Florida.
The landowners have loved every minute of this project and with this work of art complete, the landowner is turning to their next legacy project. This is a rare opportunity to step right into a gorgeous property, built for entertaining with zero deferred maintenance.
