For over a century the Red Hills region of south Georgia and north Florida has discreetly served as a winter time retreat for some of America's greatest industrialists and titans of industry. In 1886 Harper's magazine classified Thomasville, Georgia as one of the top 10 most fashionable places to visit in the world. Attracted by the mild climate and abundance of wild game, in particular the bobwhite quail, the area is now defined by its large concentration of traditional hunting plantations. Rosewood Plantation consists of approximately 1050 acres and is perhaps the most unique of all the properties available within the famed Red Hills. The original owners' love of trotter racing led to the construction of the 5/8 mile racetrack, situated on a hilltop overlooking the property. Presently owned by a prominent Atlanta businessman and thoroughbred owner, the equestrian component of the property was further developed to include a 24 stall horse barn, including stallion and mare barns, as well as 18 paddocks. Additionally, the property includes a 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath house overlooking a 10 acre, fully stocked lake. The property is truly reminiscent of the Old South with azalea lined driveways and majestic oaks clad with spanish moss and wisteria.
In addition to equestrian activities, Rosewood features an abundance of recreational opportunities. A large duck impoundment exists on the property and has historically attracted migratory ducks by the thousands. The pristine pine forest serve as exceptional habitat for bobwhite quail, deer, and turkey, with further entertainment provided by the manicured three hole golf course, tennis court, and Remington designed skeet and trap range. The property adjoins the vast shooting estate of the Ford family known as Longpine. Rosewood Plantation is truly a one of a kind property that seamlessly blends all of the amenities the area has to offer.
