RARE LUXURY ESTATE AND LAND! This is a great opportunity to own a gorgeous custom built and designed estate with tons of land for recreation, hunting, timber, farming and anything else you could want to do, all within a very short drive of the Tallahassee city limits and protected in a gated community. The property boasts a beautiful brick estate home with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2.5 car garage, office, immaculate features and finishes, upstairs bonus room (reading loft), screened porch and so much more. The well-manicured grounds are composed of planted and natural timber, fire-managed to create a beautiful “quail-plantation” aesthetic full of native wildlife like whitetail deer, eastern wild turkey, songbirds, and more. Rural estates of this caliber are rare to hit the market. The estate home totals 2,642 sq. ft. heated and cooled, or 3,676 sq. ft. total covered space when including the garage and screened porch. Huge windows and high ceilings provide plenty of light for the clean, bright interiors. The exterior is architecturally well-designed and constructed with brick, enhanced by the landscaped lawn established in native species that fit perfectly with the natural surroundings. The interior layout is thoughtfully integrated, flowing well from room to room. Wood and tile flooring is prominent in the common areas, transitioning to carpet for the bedrooms. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tiled backsplash, and cabinets that fit seamlessly with the flooring and other appointments. The living room has a gas fireplace and large floor-to-ceiling windows with French doors looking out into the picturesque landscape. Bathrooms and bedrooms are updated, immaculate, and contain plenty of closet space. A unique spiral staircase leads up to the cozy reading nook with large bay window, a cozy, perfect escape from the cares of the week. One bedroom is currently being used as an office space. The screened porch is tiled, and looks over the back yard and pond. The 65 acres surrounding the estate are in a diverse, beautiful mix of pine and hardwoods with a native understory, complete with established trail network. The pine timber has been managed with prescribed fire, a natural land management method that promotes healthy forests, strong wildlife populations, and reduced risk of disease and wildfire, as well as creating an aesthetically pleasing landscape with a low understory of native flora. Deer and turkey are in abundance on the land, along with other bird and small animal species. Hunting is allowed on the land, or just sit back and enjoy watching nature unfold while relaxing on the porch. The property has a small spring-fed pond near the house, creating a water source for wildlife and fishing opportunities. The grounds around the house are fully landscaped, using native plants to promote a holistic ecology. Various flowering plants and trees, along with some fruit-bearing species connect the house to the natural environment around it. Minimum property size in the neighborhood is 20 acres – should the future owner desire, the tract can be further subdivided into 3 buildable parcels. This estate and land is simply not to be missed for the person that desires privacy and connection to nature and the environment without sacrificing thoughtful aesthetics and design, and quality construction.
