The Rackley Family Farm is a gem! Rarely does a true family farm come available & especially in this southern area of Grady Co. This farm has been in the same family over 70 yrs. For business, employment, dining & culture, the location is perfect. The farm is located within a half hour driving distance to Tallahassee or Thomasville & just minutes to Bainbridge, Whigham & Cairo. For the water enthusiast, you are only minutes away from the newly constructed Tired Creek Reservoir offering over 900 ac of excellent fishing. Lake Seminole & Lake Talquin are both within a half hours drive & the Gulf of Mexico is just over an hour away. The well-kept home is masonry brick construction with 3BR/1BA & beautiful wood floors throughout. Additional features include a large Living/Dining Rm, eat-in Kitchen opens to the Family Rm, large Laundry/Storage Rm, screened porch & utility storage area off the rear carport. A truly comfortable home for a permanent residence or the perfect second home for sportsmen & folks desiring a private retreat. This property includes an outbuilding for storage, tools & lawn equipment. Several hundred feet from the main house is electric service & septic in place that could serve for an RV parking site. A deep well on the property provides water to this location as well as the home. Panoramic views around the home w/lg Oaks, Pecans, a few large Pines & even a few Cedars. Beautiful mature Camellias set off the landscape on the front lawn offering year-round foliage & winter blooms. There is over a mile of existing walking & riding trails on the tract offering excellent access to the property. Wildlife abounds, Eastern Wild Turkey are plentiful as are Whitetail deer. The hunting itself could bring an income stream, however this tract has not been leased for recreation. Hunting for these animals has been well managed by family members allowing for strong numbers as well as a stable & growing population of Bobwhite Quail. Approx 45 ac was converted from cropland to a Long Leaf Pine plantation in late 2010. A Long Leaf tract like this is special & produces better timber & pine straw as well as providing the uplands environment so important to the wildlife that calls this home. There are several mature stands of saw quality pines across the creeks on the ridge tops offering substantial income if cut. The internal road system provides good access for recreation, hiking, hunting or harvesting of this timber. Two spring branches meet on the property forming a larger creek. These water corridors are the life blood for the wildlife on the property & offer the perfect location for a nice lake. There are hundreds of acres of farm & woodlands surrounding this property offering privacy & sanctuary for wildlife. This farm is a turnkey purchase, whether an investor, sportsman or permanent homeowner. What a great place to live, play or retire!
