With a rolling topography dominated by natural longleaf pine and a wiregrass understory, this property is an integral part of the 3,535-acre Natural Bridge Creek Plantation. Through three generations, the Hester family has demonstrated they were clearly ahead of their time in implementing strict timber and wildlife management practices. The results can be seen in this spectacular and varied property that is a jewel among today's ubiquitous timberland and recreational tracts. It's even more attractive now that the price has been reduced by over $645,000!
Parcel 3 encompasses 1,387+/- acres in the northernmost reaches of Walton County, Florida. It has excellent access at three different strategic points along its boundary and is only 50 miles from the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast. Due to Natural Bridge Plantation's diversity, there are several uses that an investor can take advantage of including recreational, conservation, and timber.
Aesthetically, this part of Natural Bridge Plantation features beautiful rolling topography with mature stands of natural timber and 2 1/2 miles of frontage on Natural Bridge Creek. Within these boundaries is an abundance of wildlife including deer, turkey, and quail. From an ecological standpoint, Natural Bridge Plantation's natural features are of such high quality that the property has been coveted by naturalists and environmental organizations. In fact, the recession and the resulting scarcity of funds are largely responsible for the property not already being acquired for conservation purposes. Some of the possibilities for Natural Bridge Plantation include placing a conservation easement on the property, establishing an ecosystem mitigation bank, or serving as an interim owner while planning a future conservation sale. As of 2015, Natural Bridge Plantation was listed as #21 on Florida Forever's priority list.
While the timber here is impressive, including many premium value pole and plywood pines, Natural Bridge Plantation is much more than a typical timberland tract. It's diversity clearly sets it apart while the natural timber stands provide an extra measure of value. Not surprisingly, this is a very productive site with a high percentage of usable land and excellent soils that include Dothan, Florala, Fuquay, Malbis, and Troup.
