Big Woods Road Place
Great Cattle Conversion or Recreational Property,
Bordered by Conservation Land and Frontage on Aucilla River and Raysor Creek
Great Rolling Hills, Great Mature Pines, and Beautiful Hardwoods and Live Water
Big Woods Road Place with 765 +/- acres and approximately a half mile on the Aucilla River and 1.4 +/- miles on Raysor Creek is one of our favorite properties. This property would be a good cattle conversion, quail conversion, or recreational property. It is bordered by the SRWMD to the south. The hardwoods and mixed pine natural areas are as beautiful as it gets. The timber value here is exceptional, per the recent timber cruise the timber value is $631,705 which is approximately $1,148 per acre on the 550 timbered acres. It has great roll and great timber; from enormous pines to a great cypress pond. The soils are exceptional. It has a classic live oak lined road frontage with dozens of 100+ year old live oaks. The neighborhood is an "A" with large landholdings and small recreational farms along a historic red clay road.
The uplands have recently been sprayed as the beginnings for site prep to planting pines but we have brought in experts and it could very well make a great cattle conversion as well. There is approximately 350+/- acres convertible to pasture. It has great soils, for example Dothan and Pelham. This property simply needs a good burning and some timber harvesting and would easily make one of the most beautiful trophy farms in the region.
The property is located approximately 20 minutes to the quaint town of Monticello and approx 40 minutes to Tallahassee, FL and Thomasville, GA. It is in a great neighborhood of large land owners, plantations and small recreational farms, for example in the neighborhood is Turkey Scratch Plantation and Bishop Farms. The property has frontage on the historic "Big Woods Road", a canopy road and frontage on Mays Road.
This is a great recreational property with a major wildlife corridor off the Aucilla River and bordered by conservation land. The property contains a great hill overlooking the pristine hardwood drain and confluence of the creek and river. Raysor Creek is a very private and scenic blackwater creek. The elevations on the property are from 100 ft down to 60ft. Power has been brought to the Northeastern edge.
This is a tract that we would be very proud to own, particularly at the offered price. This is one of the last large landholdings on the Middle Aucilla River that is not yet under a conservation easement and is an exceptional candidate.
Priced to Sell - $1,950 Per Acre
" We have had our eyes on Big Woods Road Place for several years. It has great rolling hills for cattle and farming, great mature pines for quail and super beautiful hardwoods and live water. We regard this as one of the top conversion properties we have found in the last five years. This is a property and price at which we ourselves strongly considered adding as an annex to our own property, Lick Skillet. We particularly like it because even at full asking price and with just a little work there is immediate equity in this property. We have the managers already on the property doing some conversion now. The dollar value "uplift" of the conversion here is very high due to multiple factors, location and multiple uses. There is great soils, clean neighborhood, great water, great roll, super conservation easement play (SRWMD may even buy in fee the Aucilla River and Raysor Creel frontage leaving the best uplands with a very low basis). The size is right for most and the timbered areas are mature and beautiful. Anyone would be proud to own this property. This is the ideal property to inexpensively convert a good portion of it to a ranch or farmland which then the whole is worth significantly more than the asking price and cost of conversion. Farm Credit is very aggressive about financing this particular property. If you are looking for a hard asset investment that with a little outsourced work can be made more valuable and more beautiful and with immediate equity, we highly recommend this property."
