This is the quintessential “gentleman's” horse and cattle ranch, offering the unique opportunity to live the ranch and farm lifestyle without compromising luxury or proximity to a great, vibrant city!
This fully fenced and cross-fenced 77.6 acre property is built for both business and recreation and offers an amazing luxury custom home, heated pool, barn, arena, stocked pond, shooting range, and wooded areas for hunting or trails. It's bordered by Little Sandy Creek on the back line. And.... it all sits just 8 miles from downtown Athens!
THE HOME, with 7 bedrooms and 8 baths, is luxury construction built in 2016, and not a detail was missed. There truly are too many features to list, but your family will enjoy the professional kitchen, the heated saltwater pool and hot tub, the outdoor kitchen, the work-out room, and the basement that's been finished with relaxation and recreation in mind. The owner's suite and bath are simply stunning, and mantels throughout the house were built using black walnut from the land the home sits on. The owners are offering a 1 year warranty to give you peace of mind.
THE LAND is level to gently rolling and features black 4 board fencing, a 1.5 acre pond w/fishing dock, 54 acres of lush pastures w/automatic water to all, a 500 yard shooting range with spaced silhouette plates, and 23 wooded acres that could easily be harvested or cleared, or left in woods for trails or hunting.
THE HORSE/LIVESTOCK FEATURES include a 7 stall barn, a 150' x 250' led lighted arena, pastures with automatic water, a hay barn, an extra large equipment shed, and a covered area for your cow pens. Two connected wells serve the property to ensure plenty of water for you and your livestock.
THE LOCATION is just a short drive - or a looong walk (yes, there's a story with that!) - to all of the cultural, epicurean, and educational opportunities Athens has to offer, and is very close to the UGA Vet School. It's an easy drive to the GA International Horse Park, the Atlanta airport, Aiken, Ocala, and Tryon. The north Georgia mountains are also an easy get away.
This is not a property to miss if you want a home that feels like it's a million miles away from it all, but isn't.
