One of those rare finds… a carve out of a large well-managed recreational plantation

Unique to property are steep ravines blanketed in a system of rushing spring-fed creeks

Magnolia Lane is a 385-acre high-quality recreational and Social Storm™ property located midway between Columbus and Albany outside of  Weston, Georgia. A peaceful and idyllic refuge for its current landowners, for 25 years they developed and groomed the property as their private get-away. This is the northern portion of their 2,000+ acre recreational plantation.

“A split off from a large well-managed recreational plantation is one of the hardest finds, yet best guarantee of a great property.” – Jon Kohler

The property is unique in that it sits on the breaks between ever so slightly rolling farmland and increasingly steep timberland. The flat plateau sits at 570 feet with 160 feet of elevation change on the north boundary. The contrast is stunning. The bottoms of the ravines hold clear spring fed creeks and enormous terrain protected hardwoods.

“We see a lot of great land. Even we don’t see places like this. The pictures don’t do it justice. If this were closer to Atlanta it would be a State Park and hundreds of tourists would come here every day just to hike along these Spring Creeks. I know exactly why when 25 years ago, all the way from Holland, when they saw this property the Vonk’s immediately bought it.” – Jon Kohler

Quiet, surrounded by lush naturescapes, stunning water features, and touting a blend of mature hardwoods, timber and more, the property is diverse as it is majestic.  This is a unique opportunity to step right into a well-managed place and enjoy immediately with little apparent deferred maintenance.

“This property is strategically located directly at the breaks between agriculture and very rolling timber lands with the benefits of both.  It’s one of the most unique places in Georgia.” – Jon Kohler

Unique to property are steep ravines blanketed in a system of rushing spring-fed creeks. In all, three winding creek bottoms provide great habitat for game and wildlife and serve as a place to escape and simply listen to the lull of flowing water. The significant elevations and roll lend to majestic vistas throughout the property.

Tucked down its namesake Magnolia-lined Lane, past 45+/- acres of rolling pastureland / hayfields, a quaint 2,500 square foot two bedroom, three bath home overlooks a 4-acre spring-fed pond. Warm and inviting, the home blends eclectic elements with just the right touch of rustic detail, accented by one-of-a-kind antiques, and a unique floor plan. A small kitchen opens out to ample living space. Encapsulated by a wall of large windows, sunlight streams through, and opens the view of the pond just beyond. A spirals staircase just off the kitchen opens to two bedrooms, each with their own bath upstairs. Hearty wood floors, book-lined shelves, painted shiplap, exposed beams, all add to uniqueness of this cozy home, but perhaps the star of the show is the back deck. The large wrap-around porch, draped in wisteria, overlooks the pond just beyond, and touts a covered outdoor fire pit and covered outdoor dining space - great for entertaining.

“The house is one of my favorite all time Pond homes. When you walk down the sidewalk, you know you are somewhere special.” – Jon Kohler

Across Magnolia Lane from the main house is a smaller 1,500 square foot two bedroom, one-bath guest house with full kitchen, a seating room and great front porch. This quest home too is also rich in wood details with wood floors, walls and ceiling.

The pond is well stocked for endless hours of fun fishing, and a wedding chapel/ quint gazebo is accessible by canoe. There is an additional 1-acre spring-fed pond between the paved road and pond house, as well as 2 spring-fed duck ponds tucked further in the woods. The current landowners love being at one with the nature and abundant wildlife that surrounds them and simply aren’t hunters.

“Magnolia Lane is located in one of the most game rich areas of Georgia. Although, the current owners haven’t allowed hunting here or on the adjoining 2,000+/- acres in 25 years, this property will make an exceptional recreational property with all the bells and whistles one would expect.” – Jon Kohler

The majority of the timber is natural mixed pine and hardwood. Nearly 48+/- acres of mature planted timber are found on the western end of the property, that have been thinned once. This would make a very nice released quail course, exceptional brood and fawning habitat as well as income production.  This is a very unique property, approximate 300 +/- acres of the property are forever protected under a conservation easement.

Social Storm Rankings

The Social Storm™ aspects of this property are incredible. This is exactly the kind of place one would take their family to spend the next pandemic, or worse. This property will prove to be an exceptional investment. As a Social Storm™ Property, if the world is a worse place, it will dramatically increase in value, and you wouldn't sell it at any price. If tomorrow is a better day, it will also increase in value as a High-Quality Recreational Property. Either way, this property goes up in value. From fertile soils, to end of the road safety and security, Magnolia Lane’s Social Storm™ Property attributes are especially highly ranked.

The Vonk’s moved to the area when looking for a place that would not only provide them with the safety and security that Magnolia Lane does but would also afford them the opportunity to harvest their own sugar cane. As distillery owners of Richland Rum, the fertile soils found at Magnolia Lane were key in choosing their forever home.The couple has chosen to keep neighboring acreage across the street from Magnolia Lane as they build a new home on-site closer to where their prized Mustang Sanctuary and Sugar Cane groves are located. Their hope is that the next land steward will love the abundant nature, flora and fauna (and potentially also love the equestrian lifestyle), as much as they do.

There are great road systems throughout the property, including one-mile of frontage on Goodwin Pond Rd. Richland is a hop away for essentials and eateries, and Richland Rum, the landowner’s thriving distillery, is a must-visit. A trip five minutes to Weston, Georgia wouldn’t be complete without a stop into Merritt Pecan, a quintessential roadside general store adorned with vintage signs, and Mom’s Kitchen and Red’s Pizza are there for a bite to eat.

Parrot, Georgia a quaint rural town is only 15 minutes away. Incorporated in 1889 as a farming community, with cotton as its main crop, Parrott experienced a revitalization project in 1995, wherein the town’s buildings were lovingly restored. The town is a great stop for antiques, gift boutiques, art galleries, craft shops and a tearoom.

In addition to nearby towns, it is 38-minutes to larger cities like Columbus, Georgia, one hour and 45 minutes to Macon, Georgia, 51 minutes to Albany, Georgia, and two-hours to Atlanta, Georgia for international flights.

“It’s interesting to note that there isn’t even one stop light between here and the busiest airport in the world.” - Jon Kohler
