Well boys, longtime lurker, first time buyer. Last night, my wife and I signed a contract for 20 acres of rolling pine plantation about an hour from our house. We've been looking for a year and nothing came up that suited us until this week. It got listed on Tuesday, we took a day off work on Wednesday to check it out, put in a bid Wednesday night, and after some counter-offers, locked it down Friday night. So damn excited about it. I've mapped it out in my mind a bunch of different ways, but first things first, we have to wait for the feasibility study to come back. We know there is a swamp head that takes up an acre or so and there are most likely some gopher tortoise burrows we can't disturb, but mostly it's a rectangular piece of blank canvas for us to do what we want with. It has frontage on a nice paved road with low traffic volume. The West neighbor is a newly planted 20 acre hay field and West of that is a 40 acre cow farm. The South neighbor is an out of town owner with 40 acres of hardwood bottom and the East neighbor is a 20 acre horse farm and house that is vacant because it looks like the house caught on fire recently. Here's a rudimentary layout of my plan (subject to change weekly), and overhead and some current trail cam pics. Satellite imagery shows it as cleared, but it's planted pines about 16' tall on the property. It's going to be our retirement home in 7 years, so got lots of time to make improvements. Stay tuned.
