One of Georgia’s Largest Private Waterways - An Income Producing Recreational Paradise!
Undoubtedly One of Georgia’s most Outstanding Private Waterbodies!
Steeped in history, Cordray’s Mill Plantation is a legacy recreational, Social Storm™, and agricultural property in Calhoun County, Georgia. Its 953+/- acres play host to endless recreation and great abundant wildlife, while simultaneously allowing for generations to gather with five living accommodations on site. Large untouched stretches of privately navigable waterways, private fishing ponds, and agricultural income production make this an exceptionally rare opportunity.
Rich in history, this property was once one of Georgia’s first resorts, home to the old grist mill, a pool, a church, a gas station, a store, and was the location of a weekly dance hall. Beginning in the 1900s, for almost 70 years, Cordray’s Mill attracted visitors from all around Georgia and had its impact on many through the years.
As one of the largest riparian habitats in SW Georgia, the mill pond backs up almost 250 acres of water, creating a private fishery and waterfowl habitat the likes of no other. There are two private boat ramps.
The pond dam backs up approximately 250 acres of water with the main water-based recreation consisting of approximately 20 acres by the bridge, 40 acres, with a mile of permanently flooded stream channels, and another 80 acres or so of flooded semi-open marsh like shallow fishery and waterfowl habitat. The Itchawaynochaway Creek itself flows through the property for 1.5 miles.
Waterfowl of all types heavily utilize the pond with mallard, widgeon, gadwall, teal, tree ducks, and wood ducks consisting of the main species. Long renowned for its fishing, particularly largemouth bass, a small private club has been leasing it for decades.
The region’s quail numbers and whitetail genetics are as good as it gets, and SW Georgia leads the South in B&C Rankings. The immediate neighborhood is a “who’s who” of some of the best hunting plantations in the country.
This property contains 234 acres of some of the most fertile, irrigated farmland in America, which in today’s rapidly changing world is increasing in demand and importance by the day. There are 3 water pumps accessing the private 250-acre reservoir through a system of deep water canals to reach the 5 pivots on the property as well as leasing water rights to an adjacent farm. The current farm rent brings in considerable income and is at the top of this competitive market.
There are 5 cabins/living quarters on site. A 3 BD / 2 BA main cabin with great wood detail (pecky cypress, live edge counters, exposed beams, and more), a 3 BD /2 BA lakeside cabin (rented for income), a 1 BD / 1 BA / ½ kitchen charming silo house, a 4 BD / 1.5 BA converted historic church house (rented for income), and a nice 4 BD / 2 BA mobile home (rented for income).
This is a great opportunity on a one-of-a-kind private lake, exceptional recreational property, with income production.
**Cabins come furnished, some equipment negotiable.
