Historic Ardmore Homestead with Equestrian Facilities
Springfield, Effingham County, Georgia
Ardmore, once a thriving railroad community known for its cane syrup and pine resin, was at its peak in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The original farm comprised some 250 acres but over the last few years the current owner has added over 100 acres by purchasing contiguous parcels. Ardmore Farm encompasses a total of 352 acres but is being offered as an option to purchase the improvements listed below along with 98 +-acres. The property and its picturesque equestrian setting are second to none in southeast Georgia.
After a fire destroyed the main house in 2005, the owners hired an architect who meticulously designed a new, larger home with the same charm and character of the original home. Great efforts were made to keep the home’s original design and southern charm but updating its utility to accommodate 21st century living.
Ardmore Farm offers a myriad of improvements including a 4322 heated sq. ft. farm house built in 2007, original horse barn and stable, an additional 12 stall barn/stable built in 1998, a riding ring, an 1800 heated sq. ft. guest log home and a 1358 heated sq. ft. additional guest house. Please view our extensive list of the many other improvements and their details shown as additional features.
The unique layout of this property includes paved road frontage along several roads. Ardmore is tucked neatly away but still within view of GA. Hwy. 21, one of the key highways in Georgia’s developmental highway system. The main home and grounds and most of the improvements lie at the center of this property adjacent to a 9-acre pecan orchard. Some ten fields varying in sizes comprise approximately 44 acres of cultivated land, hay field and pasture. The balance of the acreage is mature natural timber with substantial value.
Ardmore Farm is located in southeast Georgia’s beautiful Effingham County only 9 miles from the county seat, Springfield, 24 miles from Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport, and 39 miles from Savannah, 26 miles from Statesboro, less than 50 miles from Georgia’s coast, and some 55 miles from Hilton Head Island, SC.
This private, extremely diverse property offers the homeowner/investor a plantation atmosphere with natural beauty, serenity and peace of mind knowing it is located close to a rapidly growing area. The scope of improvements provides ample opportunity for several families to consider this plantation life setting a home. Additionally, the property could be easily subdivided to accommodate a conservation community should this need be desired. A game management plan could be designed to offer additional hunting opportunities for the upland hunter including deer, Bob White Quail, wild turkey and dove. A greater home and opportunity is not available anywhere in the area at this price!
