This Beautiful Red Hills Plantation is a Live Oak-Lover’s Dream
Nestled in the scenic Red Hills region of the Florida Panhandle, Oak Hill Plantation, a 983-acre hunting estate between Thomasville, Georgia and Tallahassee, seeks new owners. This sprawling property, dotted with ancient Live Oaks and prized game, hasn't been on the market since the 1820s. To get your hands on it this time around, you’ll have to part with $9,995,000.
The heart of the sprawling estate is the 8,000 square-foot classic, Greek revival main house which boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms and countless historic details. (The staircase and fireplace mantels were salvaged from the iconic Old Ormond Beach Hotel.) And the neighbors certainly aren’t bad: it borders media mogul Ted Turner's Avalon Plantation on three sides.
Oak Hill Plantation is currently owned by Virginia Wetherell, former Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
“The owners have been grooming and manicuring this property for nearly 30 years making this is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful Red Hills plantation, with excellent location, rich history, a stunning plantation home, and perhaps more ancient Live Oak trees than any other property in the region,” broker Jon Kohler said in a statement.
