Fun Place for Family and Friends to Gather to Enjoy the Outdoors
Checking all the boxes, both his and hers, Setter Run Farms has a very interesting balance. He is a builder. She is an interior designer. Both are extremely good at what they do. The combination has turned this property into a one-of-a-kind, entertaining showplace.
The 527 +/- acre high-quality recreational property is a rare combination where a property’s architectural and historical significance meets with great land. Featuring five lakes, rolling topography, open fields, pine timber, mixed hardwoods, creeks and streams, and super cool amenities, this is one of our favorite properties that is the nexus between outdoors and entertainment.
This property has been in the family for more than 50 years. One can feel the passion and reverence this second generation has, as they turned a great property into a place where their friends and family could enjoy.
In all, three cabins and a Party Barn, each unique in their own regard, provide ample living space for friends and family. However, given her background, everything has a story and a meaning and it’s all tied back to the land.
“This is one of those places that you really look forward to going to and to showing to others. I like to see the glimmer in people’s eyes when they see the property. It is exciting to show; the sense of discovery and all the neat things at the property.” - Jon Kohler
The old "Cracker Cabin" originally served as a modest hunt camp for father and son. As the family grew, the cabin was expanded upon to include a kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and bath, and guest bed/bath. The "Cracker Cabin" retains its original charm with wood detail and offers sprawling front and back porches (both enclosed and open). Overlooking just one of the five lakes, with porch swings and an outdoor fire-pit, unwinding is easy. Adjacent to the "Cracker Cabin" is a large raised flower bed garden for growing fresh herbs and vegetables.
The matriarch of the household is a designer by trade, as evidenced by her eye for immaculate detail. Spanning the eras, relics and antiques tied to the region are intricately woven throughout the living spaces. Modern appliances, custom cabinetry, custom-designed upholstery and more, blend the old with the new for a refined and polished look. Each piece was thoughtfully hand-selected to fit its respective space. One would be hard-pressed to find another property offered turn-key with nearly as much aesthetic and incredible design components.
“All of the structures are so very well put together. From the interior design, the architecture, the quality….it just feels right.” - Jon Kohler
The "Cabin in the Woods" was built and completed in 2018. It was meant to look and feel like a North Georgia mountain cabin and it does. It was designed to blend in with the older "Cracker Cabin" in a wood that would patina and weather in time. This cabin, like the other, also overlooks one of the many scenic lakes. Grand steps, rocking chairs, and a stone fireplace only further contribute to its charm. The main living space is cozy, outfitted with custom furniture and lighting fixtures. The wood-burning fireplace features a gas starter, and the kitchen touts a beautiful Italian Bertazzoni gas range, a sub-zero full-size fridge and freezer, and a washer/dryer all hidden to seamlessly blend behind custom wood cabinetry. The master bedroom on the first floor features a grand master bath with claw foot tub, chandelier, a beautiful walk-in shower with ceramic tile designed to mimic the look of old stamped tin tiles. Upstairs a king size guest bed awaits, with ample space for the two twin beds across the room, and a full-size bath of its own.
“The Cabin in the Woods is one of my all-time favorite cabins that I have seen during my career. When the landowner said she wanted to create something special here she certainly did.” - Jon Kohler
The “Fairy Tale Cabin” is a quaint, one-bedroom, one-bath cabin. It’s the ideal spot for a little extra privacy and being able to walk right outside into miles of trails.
The landowners love having friends and family join for gatherings and dinner parties, as such the "Party Barn" was intentionally built, and is perhaps the star of the show. Once what was an old Sharecroppers barn, the couple took wood from the original structure and utilized this wood on the interior walls of the "his" side of the Party Barn. Rich wood tones, dark leather, and an antique English bar make the "his" side the perfect place for lounging, sipping libations, or discussing the day's sporting pursuits. The "hers" side has an air of femininity to it with bright natural lighting, cream-colored furniture, a cozy fireplace, and a stunning chandelier. The chef’s kitchen is made to prepare meals for a large crowd, with a large 86-inch custom French Lacanche Range in a beautiful deep emerald tone, complete with two warming cabinets, a large island, two dishwashers, a full-size sub-zero refrigerator, a full-size sub-zero freezer, and large walk-in pantry. All of the appliances yet, again are hidden behind beautiful custom wood cabinetry. Outside the "Party Barn" is a large covered outdoor pavilion, with plenty of seating space, porch swings, and a beautiful outdoor stone fireplace. Easily accessible from the main road, the space is great for entertaining large crowds, gathering around the fire, and enjoying fellowship with friends and family.
“When I think of the Party Barn, the word FUN pops into my head; And, family, friends, and fellowship.” - Jon Kohler
The property has beautiful rolling topography and is a mix of pine timber, mixed hardwoods, creeks and streams, and open fields. There is abundant wildlife. The landowners seldom hunt now themselves, but the deer and turkey numbers are phenomenal. The pasture land could be left as is, or easily be converted into an orchard for fruits, pecan trees, or other. Five beautiful lakes are found throughout the property, at approximately 1.5, 1.6, .8, 2, and 6.9 +/- acres. The largest lake is spring-fed by two spring heads. The lakes are great for fishing, with many a trophy bass caught over the years.
Knowing a thing or two about entertainment, the property owners also own and operate a thriving local distillery, Swamp Fox Distilling Co. The distillery is a gathering hub in the town square, where tastings are a revered treat. While the stills and tasting room have a well-known local presence, Swamp Fox also distributes their premium small-batch spirits nationally to several southern and northern states. Growing rapidly, the company plans to expand to new locations soon.
Ten minutes from the town square, Buena Vista conveniently offers great dining, shopping, and entertainment. The Marion County Airport is only 15 minutes away for private air travel. Recently updated with a new surfaced runway, runway lighting, and fencing around the entire perimeter, upgrades in progress now include an apron and fuel farm, with a potential for hangar development. Columbus, Georgia’s second-largest city, is only 35 minutes to the west and Americus is only 30 minutes to the southeast. From daily commercial jet travel, to anything one could need from a city, all is just a short drive away.
It would take years to duplicate this property and the amenities. The design and decorating skills put into Setter Run Farms are next to impossible to recreate. This is a rare opportunity to own a turn-key, high-quality recreational property ready to step in and enjoy.
This property is a very good candidate for a Social Storm Property. Some fencing and other minor security measures should take place. However, the area is already very safe. There is very good water. The fisheries could be greatly expanded by simply adding some fish feeders.
