Derived from the Latin words for land and beautiful, Terra Chula is an exquisite hunting plantation on 1686 acres in the famed Red Hills region of South Georgia. Located in Brooks County, every detail of this gorgeous property has been considered and is evident upon entering the grounds. Terra Chulas classic southern landscape beautifully blends conservation and hospitality- from the intensively managed land, to the winding live oak drive and finally, to the newly constructed home and lodge.
Completed in the summer of 2018, Terra Chulas main house opens with a welcoming foyer with classic black and white marble checkerboard floors and arched doorways. The family rooms have high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and heart pine flooring, and flow nicely into the kitchen, back porch and formal dining room. The kitchen has a custom marble island, WOLF and Subzero appliances, pressed tin ceiling and a Shaws farmhouse sink that serenely overlooks the lake and grounds. The Master suite is upstairs with a private balcony, a wrap-around closet, and master bath with a claw foot tub overlooking the live oak entryway. Additional highlights include an elevator, custom mud room with built in dog kennels, floral arranging room, dog wash room, 2 two-car garages, a golf cart garage, saltwater pool and bath house, and much more. There are 5 bedrooms with 5 baths, 2 additional half baths and the home is about 8,000 square feet.
Steps away is the recently renovated 5,400 sq. ft. Lodge. The Lodge contains 4 bedrooms with 4.5 baths, each holding 2 queen beds. The Lodge has a large open concept designed for many gathering and dining options. This area is serviced by a full catering kitchen that feature professional grade appliances throughout. A wrap around porch has a firepit, grilling station, and overlooks the lake. Additionally, there is also a guest cottage with 2 more beds and baths. This is an ideal set up for a corporate retreat or overflow family and friends, with plenty of room to relax and play.
This attention to detail can also be seen in the scenic landscape, which has been meticulously groomed to create a distinct quail woods aesthetic with mature pines, native grasses, and broom sage. Another unique land feature includes 2 miles of Piscola Creek, a notoriously game rich corridor. This creates exceptional trophy whitetail deer hunting, alongside fantastic turkey habitat. Brooks County was ground zero for the release of Wisconsin whitetail deer in the late 1960s in an effort to reestablish the regions deer population. The superior genetics of these trophy deer can still be seen today and have resulted in several state records in Brooks County. Established food plots and shooting houses have been created throughout the property and contribute the significant diversity of Terra Chula. Two dove fields have been planted on the property, complete with irrigation and artificial power lines. The focal point of the property is a gorgeous 35 acre cypress lake that is fully stocked. The professional sporting clay station is also positioned to take in the view of this idyllic setting. Rounding out the diversity of this property is approximately 50 acres of fenced and cross fenced pasture land and the existence of a 12 inch agricultural along approximately 105 acres of interior agricultural fields with productive soil types.
For the equestrian, the property includes an 8 stall horse barn, tack room, and grooming station as well as 6 paddocks. A classic jumping/eventing course can be found in the woods surrounding the equestrian facilities. Other improvements include a 20 run dog kennel, managers office, and multiple equipment barns. An attractive 3 bedroom managers house is also included with the property.
With too many details to mention, Terra Chula is true to its name with not only beautiful land, but remarkable improvements that make this the finest private hunting facility currently on market. For more information or to schedule a showing of this exclusive listing, please contact our firm.
