Live Oak Haven is truly a unique offering within minutes of the historic town of Thomasville, Georgia. A 70 acre spring fed lake is the heart of this property and has been managed for both trophy bass along with bluegill, shell crackers, and crappie. A body of water this size is also a magnet for migrating ducks- particularly ringed necks- and the dollar bonnets and hydrilla provide a natural feed source. Overlooking the bald cypress lined lake is a 1940s lodge that has been meticulously restored and remodeled. The 4600 sq.ft. lodge features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathes, with the spacious master suite located on the ground level. Details include beautiful rift heart pine flooring, custom pine built-ins, impressive raised and coffered pecky cypress ceilings, oversized fireplace, and wine storage. The professional grade kitchen includes a top of the line Viking appliances, stainless steel countertops, tile backsplash, and cork flooring. The mudroom features heart pine custom gun cabinets and storage, alongside an overflow subzero game freezer, sink, and granite countertops. A fully equipped outdoor kitchen allows for gracious entertaining within the beautiful landscaped grounds and long porches overlooking vistas of the lake. An extensive solar panel array provides back up power that services the primary electrical and well systems and allows for off-grid living.
The property itself is extremely diverse with fertile, irrigated cropland serviced by an 8 inch deep well. This well can also be utilized to flood a nearby Wood Duck hole that is encircled in Live Oaks and offers incredibly sporty shooting. A hilltop dove field includes an artificial power line and has proven to be extremely productive, while hooting houses and food plots are located throughout the property. Longleaf pines have been planted throughout the property to compliment the mature pines, mixed hardwoods, and huge live oaks.
In addition to the main lodge, other improvements include a 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest house as well as a two bed, two bath lake cottage for overflow friends and family. A large metal pole barn includes 4 oversized work bays, an enclosed shop, as well as a 6 run dog kennel with a large outdoor dog yard. A covered boat dock with slips, along with a concrete boat ramp provide easy lake access for every size boat. The circular shaped peninsula on the lake has power, water, and a party pavilion . All of the road frontage is fenced with a beautiful gated main entrance along with a gated service entrance. With too many upgrades and features to list to list, Live Oak Haven is a must see.
