Broker Comments:

“This farm will be a rewarding place to manage wildlife, to enjoy the peace, beauty and solitude of nature and get away from the busyness of life.  The natural features and habitat that exist here can not be easily replicated and take decades to establish, they contribute greatly to the value of Whitewater.  It is secluded and private yet close enough to Atlanta and LaGrange to stay connected when desired.  It is an exceptional recreational property!”

Property Description

Whitewater Farms is a best in class, turn-key recreational property, southwest of Atlanta near LaGrange, Georgia. The farm contains 850 acres of rolling topography along Whitewater Creek that has been developed over the last 2 decades into a highly-managed and manicured hunting property. It includes a furnished 7,400 SF main home that was built by the current owner that is supported by a guest lodge and a large equipment shop and pole barn. The farm has excellent timber resources comprised largely of old-growth hardwood bottoms and mature loblolly pine plantations. Whitewater Creek is a major creek that runs through the entire length of the property and feeds directly into the Chattahoochee River at West Point Lake. Numerous other creeks and drainages feed into Whitewater Creek and provide excellent topography and natural features that make the farm unique and beautiful. Prescribed burning, an extensive internal road system, strategically placed food plots and professional timber management have produced excellent wildlife habitat throughout the farm and enhance the farms’ ideal natural features.

 

Location

Whitewater Farms is located near the town of LaGrange, Georgia in Troup County. Between Whitewater and LaGrange lies beautiful West Point Lake which was formed by the Army Corps of Engineers via a dam on the Chattahoochee River. Troup County is nestled between Harris and Meriwether Counties along the border of Alabama and Georgia in the piedmont region of Georgia. Callaway Gardens is located just 20 miles to the south in Harris County and attracts 750,000 visitors annually. It is most widely known for its natural beauty, gardens, golf and resort but is also known for its trophy whitetail deer. Collectively, this area is home to numerous well-managed hunting properties and represents the most prominent hunting and recreational area within an hour of Atlanta. These 3 counties share similar characteristics of abundant water resources, rolling topography and outstanding whitetail genetics and fertile soils and consistently produce trophy whitetails along with excellent turkey hunting.

 

Use, Wildlife and Conservation

Whitewater has been placed under a conservation easement with the Georgia Alabama Land Trust ensuring this great place will remain the same for future generations. The easement has been thoughtfully drafted with 35 acres surrounding the main home excluded from the easement. Under the easement, the property can be split up to 4 times and 3 more houses can be built. The Owner retains full silvicultural and agricultural rights along with all rights to construct and maintain roads and develop and maintain wildlife habitat. An easement of this type is a major asset to the farm and its legacy. The farm also enjoys excellent neighbors which contribute to the neighborhood.
