At $39 Million, This Enormous Quail Hunting Plantation is Georgia’s Most Expensive Listing
Storming the market at an eye-popping $39 million, the price tag on Georgia’s Whitehall Mansion eclipses that of Tyler’s Perry’s former Buckhead mansion (the state’s previous most-expensive property) by a long shot. By nearly $20 million, to be exact.
Occupying 8,409 acres in an area known for wealthy quail hunters about 130 miles south of Atlanta, this historic plantation is a outdoorsman's dream. It contains a 159-acre private lake, a 3,150-square-foot 1840s Classical Revival main house and an 1880s lakeside lodge. All told, the entire property spans a staggering 8,409 acres. As Curbed points out, that’s more than all City of Atlanta parks put together, times two.
Whitehall Plantation was established in 1847 by Joseph White, a planter, who settled in Laurens County because he was so impressed by the quality of the soil in the area. Today, in addition the property’s 11 separate quail courses, a six-trap skeet range, a dog kennel and a grass-strip airplane runway, Whitehall still boasts nearly 2,300 acres of fertile, irrigated farm land.
