Location: Tucked quietly away in the Marlow community of southern Effingham County just off Hwy. 17 is this manicured and well maintained sportsman’s dream property. Conveniently located approximately 25 miles from Savannah, Pooler, Rincon, and Guyton, as well as only 30 miles from Statesboro, GA.
Description: This superbly maintained, heavily wooded, easily accessible, and ideally protected property offers a very private home site, catfish pond, game fields/plots, duck pond area and plenty of wildlife of all kinds native to southeast Georgia.
The land lies level and access throughout is made possible with an easily maintained, awesome interior road system with road width suitable to provide shooting lanes for deer hunting. Whitetail deer and wild turkeys are graciously plentiful as good cover and food sources are abundant on RUT-N-STRUT. Wood Ducks gather in a natural duck pond on the eastern property line providing fun wing-shooting. Roads throughout also provide a playground for RTV’s, four wheelers and such during the off-season for hunting.
Improvements to the property include a 24 X 72 implement shelter with adjacent 12 X 22 hunters’ apartment, deep well, underground power, small portable storage shed and camper hookups. In addition, located near the future homesite, is a well-stocked fishpond, almost an acre in size, loaded with catfish of varying sizes. The pond also has a nice dock serving as a great place for children to fish. Dove fields could easily be added to create more diversity in your overall sporting experience. Mature timber on the south end thinned could be used to create a small quail course. A small gun range could also be added in some of the fields.
The property has some potential for wetland mitigation or could possibly qualify through NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service) for WRE (Wetlands Reclamation Enhancement) program as a way to recoup a large portion of the purchase price by placing perpetual easements on the land.
Comments: The Seller has quality managed the property, wisely controlling the size and amount of game taken from the property each year resulting in optimum game sighting and hunter’s choice for excellent hunting experiences.
The property has merchantable timber and depending on the management plans of the future owner, heavily forested areas could be thinned or completely harvested and replanted to bring in revenue streams through years ahead.
The University of Georgia Foundation’s 1600+ acre and other large tracts adjoining RUT-N-STRUT on the west side keep outside hunting pressure low. This allows you to “set the table w/game food plots” on RUT-N-STRUT with game food plots to draw even more game to this property.
A very avid local turkey hunter said of the property that he has never seen a property with more turkeys. Contact us and let us show you around.
Price: $895,000 ($1,872/acre)
