Parcel #1 is approx 1,226 +/- acres of the main planation block of the historic Honey Lake Plantation, a quail/deer/turkey/duck plantation located in Madison and Jefferson Counties, FL including the private 80+/- acre deep-water, spring fed lake; one of the most beautiful in the Southeast. Due to the fact that there isn’t another lake like Honey Lake, the plantation was originally founded by Pansy Poe as an annex to Pebble Hill. Under the current landowner’s stewardship, it was further enhanced earning the title by Sporting Classics as the “Lodge of the Year” and in 2008 a classic revival home was built on the lake. This is a unique opportunity on a historic Red Hills Plantation. The Sealed Bid Auction Deadline is Thursday, June 20,2019 at 2 PM ET.
Honey Lake Plantation is mapped on the prestigious Georgia-Florida Field Trial Map. It is located in Madison and Jefferson Counties, Florida and is approximately 35 miles to Thomasville and 38 miles to restaurants and shopping in Tallahassee’s Market Square. Plantations on the Florida side of the belt present the additional benefits of Florida residency tax status and property taxes for land under a conservation easement is zero (there is currently no conservation easement on Honey Lake Plantation).
The main plantation house “Selah”, is the name given to the 6,994 square foot estate located on the banks of the 80-acre lake. The setting is one of the most unique in the southeast, with vistas of mature quail woods and seasonal understory grasses out the front door rivaled only by the beauty of the private, spring-fed lake out the back. Selah was built in 2011. The open floorplan of this four bedroom/four and two half bath home is ideal for today's family and entertaining.
The Historic Pansy Poe cottage is on the shores of Honey Lake. It’s been completely updated and has three bedrooms. There is a fishing pier and boathouse and large brick patio/barbeque combo here, as well. Other plantation improvements include a custom gated entrance, over six miles of high fence, two grain bins, a boardwalk through the cypress, chicken coop, high fenced vegetable garden, and a 40-acre irrigation pivot.
Due to the plantations location and the lake, there is significant “higher and better use” and the property is an ideal candidate for a conservation easement.
This is an incredible opportunity to buy one of the most unique properties in North Florida.
