Located in Suffolk County, VA sits this very private home on 650 acres. The house was recently built in 2019 and is roughly 4,000 square feet. It features five bedrooms, two and a half baths, vaulted ceilings, and a cozy loft. The commercial kitchen features all gas appliances. The front porch offers beautiful views of the 11 acre homesite as well as a 10 acre field. The home is new (built in 2019) and modern yet has a rustic farmhouse feel. The design, both interior and exterior, fits the property and location well.
The house is located roughly one mile off the nearest highway, being Gates road. The land and home is very private, secluded, yet safe and protected. The land features much diversity and has been managed exclusively for wildlife. On the property you can expect to find high quality roads, food plots, and hunting stands. The stands are blox blinds (see photo gallery and video). They have been strategically situated throughout the property. The land type varies from thinned pines, to food plots, farm land used for agricultural purposes, and replanted cutover.
The diversity of the landscape is unparalleled and is one of the major contributors to the amazing wildlife found on the property. From the open land being used for agricultural purposes, thinned pines, replanted pines, and established food plots, this property is second to none. There are also two duck ponds that are tucked back into the woods (see photo gallery). One pond is roughly 8 acres and the other is roughly 24 acres. While on the property many deer and turkey tracks were seen, in addition to hearing plenty of bobwhite quail and doves. During the winter months the secluded wooded ponds attract all sorts of migratory waterfowl.
The farmland is income-producing and brings in roughly $15,000 of income annually. There is a 200 acre section oftimber land that was harvested and has been replated with pines, which are 8 years old. None of the farmland or home site is in the designated wetland area or the FEMA Floodplain. The only areas on the property that are encompassed in these areas are in the woods and along streams and bottomland hardwood areas. Many of the hardwoods present on the property are massive and decades old.
There are two outbuildings present. One is a newer construction metal building with a concrete floor that is currently empty and a great place to store equipment out of the weather. There is also another larger building that currently has various types of equipment stored such as ATVs and tractors. There are three points of access to the property. All of which are deeded. There is a 50 foot strip of land cleared that spans the perimeter of the property totaling 3.5 miles. It has been created so a fence could be put up to allow wildlife to pass but not hunting dogs.
