Multiple Reasons To Buy A Southern Estate Home

The owners of WaterOak Plantation, an eighty acre southern estate home, have made a significant price reduction for the property.

In case you missed the press releases a few months ago when they decided to sell this icon of Tallahassee history, it's worth revisiting as something this grand does not occur often in the Tallahassee real estate market.

This estate represents some of the earliest history of Tallahassee.

WaterOak Plantation was founded as a small cotton plantation of 1840 acres by Richard Bradford, who’s son with the same name would later become the first Florida officer killed in Confederate action during the Civil War.

After the war, numerous plantations were created through large land buys all along the Thomasville Road, offering world class quail hunting to affluent Northerners. Clement Griscom, a shipping magnate from Philadelphia, was one of the most active buyers.

WaterOak survives today as an eighty acre estate home with potential for many different uses.

Prime Location In Tallahassee

Located merely 10.1 miles from Florida's Capitol building, WaterOak Plantation offers opportunity for many prospective buyers.

Situated in the heart of the highly prized 32312 zip code, WaterOak Plantation could easily serve as a high end development. Savvy developers could bring more opportunity to live on Lake McBride and it is already an area that has produced the largest average home sizes and highest home values in the Tallahassee real estate market.

In a nutshell, WaterOak Plantation is the "prime location" in Tallahassee.

Premiere Southern Estate Home

Ideally, Tallahassee would love to retain WaterOak Plantation as it is now, a family home that offers fields and pastures that one would expect to find it an extremely rural setting, yet in the heart of Tallahassee's high value real estate corridor.

If you are looking for a homestead in an income-tax-free state that will continue to grow in value due to its proximity to shopping, schools and services, then this could be your perfect solution.
