Quail Plantation Located in the Middle of the World's Cultural Epicenter for Quail and Fine Land, with Some of the Highest Quality Improvements to be Offered in Years.
"Kickapoo may well be the perfect Thomasville plantation headquarters. With regards to overall improvement quality and perfection throughout, it may not have an equal in all of the Red Hills' 300,000 acres. It is perfectly situated in the prime US 319 Thomasville/Tallahassee corridor surrounded by other top "A ranked," wild-bird only, plantations, yet a short ten minute drive to downtown historic Thomasville."

Kickapoo is situated in the heart of the Red Hills Plantation belt, where quail is king and the lifestyle is sophisticated and relaxed.
In a very smart arrangement, 500 acres of the adjacent Trinity Place is leased. The Kickapoo owners intensively manage the leased land for quail. When the dirt in this region is so very rarely sold, procuring a lease, when you can find one, is a perfectly smart solution for increasing the recreational utility of a smaller property.
Those who live in or travel to the red hills are especially charmed by the landscape. Pines tower over an inconceivable understory consisting of native grasses and forbs that erupt each fall with a gorgeous spectacle of color and blooms, unleashed by the fire that is prescribed to these woods on rotation each spring. Kickapoo directly borders Longpine Plantation (6,000+ acres), Pebble Hill (3,000+ acres), Warbick Farms (part of Sinkola's 2,300+ acres), and Trinity Place (leased); a few of the original quail plantations that make up these 300,000 total acres of plantations in the red hills.
The Kickapoo house and campus are some of the finest modern plantation improvements in the red hills. Every detail was considered and no expense was spared in the three-and-a-half years it took for the current owners to design, perfect, build, and furnish this estate with over 17,300 square feet under roof. The grand outdoor living areas rival indoor parlors and an outstanding great room. A virtual tour and house plans are available for qualified parties upon request.
The oak allee lends a small glimpse of the house and grounds on the approach to the estate. Intentionally designed to appear modest upon arrival, the scale is spot-on and the majority of the house is concealed.
The current owners are partners on another plantation on the opposite side of the plantation belt and, on their limited number of days in Thomasville, they end up spend a lot of time travelling between the two. They wish to devote 100% of their time in Thomasville on their other plantation.
"The main home and matching guest homes are the epitome of southern charm and quality. The improvements are some of the, if not the, best built and of highest quality finishes that we have seen in our 25 years of specializing in this niche. The improvements took three-and-a-half years to construct and are built with meticulous detail. The two lakes would be almost impossible to permit today and would, in fact, be impossible on the Florida side of the belt."

Land & Lakes:
About 98% of the land at Kickapoo consists of beautiful uplands and pine woods, ideal for growing quail.
There are three inter-connected lakes, including the largest of those being Lake Lola. There is a duck pond and water control.
The property is not yet protected by a conservation easement.
Kickapoo is less than seven miles to Thomasville's charming brick-paved Broad Street, and just 17 miles to Tallahassee's Bradfordville area's shopping and restaurants. It is located in the most prestigious of neighborhoods and has one mile of frontage on 319.
Includes Historic Quail Plantation Land with a 8,800+/- sq ft Plantation House, Two Guest Houses, Owner's Office, Bunkhouse and Garage, Additional Leased Quail Lands, and More!
Quickly upon inspection, one realizes there are several million dollars more originally invested in this house than even the full asking price shows. As often is the case with some of the top homes in the country, not only will the next owner be able to purchase it below the original cost of construction, but they don't have to wait the three years and executive decision making it takes to create a legacy site of architectural significance. Today, Kickapoo is certainly ranked among the top, if not the top, of all plantation homes in the Red Hills.
