Belle's Timberlands offers 111 acres that would make for an ideal rural retreat property with timber potential and paved road frontage located minutes from the amenities of Eatonton, Georgia.
Belle’s Timberlands is located in the Piedmont Region of Central Georgia. Piedmont means “foot of the mountains” and describes the slightly rolling, red clay, hill region located between the coastal plain to the south and the mountains to the north. The immediate neighborhood is dominated by timberland with interspersed pastures and rural residences. Putnam County was established in 1807 and named for Israel Putnam, a general in the American Revolutionary War.
There are many attractions in the Eatonton area, just 5 miles to the east, including the Uncle Remus Museum, Georgia Writers Museum, eclectic shops, art galleries, and quaint bed and breakfasts. The region boasts thousands of acres of public national forests, wildlife management and refuge areas, and many more recreational opportunities.
Belle’s Timberlands is only minutes from Lake Sinclair and only 20 miles from the luxury lakefront resort The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee. There are also multiple golf courses and boating opportunities in the area. The city of Monticello is approximately 20 miles to the west of the property. The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes away, where you can catch a flight to anywhere in the world.
Glenwood Springs Road, which is paved, serves as a portion of the properties south boundary with a distance of approximately 450 feet. Belle’s Timberlands has an internal access point off Glenwood Springs Road leading through the property.
Belle’s Timberlands is an ideal property for a semirural getaway, to enjoy nature, hunt, or camp. There are several suitable locations for structure development. The vast majority of the property is considered either upland or lowland, both of which are suitable for timber production.
This tract is currently leased for hunting at a rate of over $13 per acre annually. Deer and turkey are abundant in this area. Also, the recently harvested areas present a blank slate for feed patch establishment and internal road lay out prior to reforestation.
Approximately 72% of Belle’s Timberlands has recently been harvested. This presents the opportunity to establish highly productive pine plantations, should a timber-oriented investment be desired. The remainder of the property is mixed natural hardwood and pine, that includes a 68” in diameter Red Oak discovered during a recent timber inventory.
