Two Cabins, a Gathering Barn, Five Lakes, Rolling Topography, Open Fields, Pine Timber, Mixed Hardwoods, Creeks, Abundant Wildlife and More!
Setter Run Farms checks all the boxes, both his and hers. The current owners built the property into what it is today. He is a builder, and 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 239 +/- acre high-quality recreational property is a rare combination where a property’s historical significance and great architecture 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.
The property features two cabins and a "Gathering Barn", each unique in their own regard, and provide ample living space for friends and family. Each structure and its details have 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" is approximately 1,400 heated/cooled square feet with 1,000 square feet of porches. It 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 "Cabin in the Woods" is 1,400 heated/cooled square feet with 400 square feet of porches. It 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 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, furniture, and more, blend the old with the new for a refined and polished look. One would be hard-pressed to find another property 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 landowners love having friends and family join for gatherings and dinner parties, as such the "Gathering Barn" was intentionally built and is perhaps the star of the show. The Gathering barn is 1,900 heated/cooled square feet with 1,900 square feet of porches. The barn has a his side and a hers side. 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 Gathering 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 "Gathering Barn" is a large covered outdoor pavilion, with plenty of seating space, porch swings, and a beautiful outdoor stone fireplace. The "Gathering Barn" is easily accessible from the main road, making it a great space is for entertaining large crowds, gathering around the fire, and enjoying fellowship with friends and family, while the three additional private cabins await for a good night's respite - tucked away quietly in the woods.
“When I think of the Gathering Barn, the word FUN pops into my head; And, family, friends, and fellowship.” - Jon Kohler
"The Gathering Barn is situated directly beside a quiet country road. This is the site the original barn was built upon and we decided to keep its location because it provided us easy access to our land which comprises miles on both sides of the road. It provides a central location whether hunting, fishing, shooting, or hiking. We decided this would also allow easy access for our guests as we entertained, as it provides ample parking for any type of vehicle.
The cabins are tucked into the woods a little ways away. We sited them among mature hardwoods with peaceful views of the lake. This allows family and guests to take quiet time away by themselves, whether needing to lay a little one down for a nap or just to have some nature therapy for one’s self. It also allows for the early to bed or late to rise to have their own private space until they're ready rejoin family and friends at the gathering barn." - Angie Moon, Landowner, Setter Run Farms
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 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.
