Gigantic Quail Plantation in Georgia Asks $39 Million
February 19, 2019 - Montrose
An approximately 8,400-acre quail plantation in central Georgia is coming on the market for $39 million.
Known as Whitehall Plantation, the property is roughly 130 miles south of Atlanta in an area known for wealthy quail hunters.
It contains a 159-acre private lake, a 3,150-square-foot 1840s Classical Revival main house and a 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.
Walter Hatchett of Jon Kohler & Associates shares the listing for Whitehall with Ed Pope of Pope Land Company.
