OLD TOWN PRESERVE The Property Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and tucked away in the heart of Tallapoosa, Georgia, lies the Old Town Preserve, a sprawling 720 acres that is nothing short of a natural paradise. It is bordered along the western boundary by the bold Walker Creek, along with Providence Church Road; along the northern boundary by the Norfolk Southern Railroad (2, 800 feet +/- of railroad track frontage), along the eastern border by Old Highway 100 (2, 450 feet +/- of road frontage), and on the south by several private ownerships. The Preserve's landscape of rolling terrain is composed of mature timber, younger pines and hardwoods, lush green fields and flowing streams, offering breathtaking views that are a treat for the senses. A 25-acre lake glistens under the Georgia sun at the center of this expansive property, its tranquil waters mirroring the surrounding beauty. In addition, the Preserve is home to four serene ponds, each a sanctuary for local wildlife and an idyllic spot for visitors seeking solitude. Winding streams meander through the landscape, their gentle sounds adding a soothing melody to the Preserve's serene symphony. Also adjoining the 25-acre lake is a 4, 400 ft. FAA-registered landing strip accompanied by a 10, 000 sf aircraft hangar. A testament to the Preserve's commitment to luxury is the grand 7, 716 +/- SF (per plans) custom home built by John Weiland Homes, well-placed at the heart of the property (qualified as an Earth Craft House). With its unique design and sophisticated arrangement, the home is a perfect blend of luxury and comfort, a beacon of enhanced living amidst the raw beauty of the Preserve. The custom home has ten bedrooms, six full baths, two half baths, a conference room, a media room, two office spaces, and much more! Not a thing was overlooked with the layout and design. Adding to the allure is the gated front entrance with an attractive guardhouse, signifying the exclusivity and security of this magnificent property. Paved roads provide easy access to its many wonders and bountiful wildlife that call the Preserve home. Utilities include underground power, water, gas, sewer, and fiber optic cable. At Old Town Preserve, nature's splendor meets human ingenuity, creating a haven of tranquility and luxury. Old Town Preserve is so-named with a hint towards the Creek or Muscogee Native American words from Tallapoosa, Georgia, derived from Talwa posa, meaning "Grandmother Town." These tribes are considered among the oldest groups in the Southeast (hence the name Old Town Preserve). Tallapoosa, Georgia, has a rich history and is a place of great ceremonial importance to Native Americans, including the Choctaw, Creek, and Cherokee tribes. Tallapoosa has been dubbed "A Georgia Town with a great future" because of the historical mineral resources and the winemaking industry that once dominated the area. Today, local employers include Honda Precision Parts, Wayne Davis Concrete Co, E.J. Brooks Co, Whirlwind Steel Buildings to name a few. An Exceptional Property Imagine having a peaceful, 720 +/- acre retreat you can fly into for the weekend or anytime you just need to escape to a place you can relax and enjoy nature.
