Every now and then I am contacted by someone who is looking for a large tract with which to build their dream estate. I have just reviewed a couple large tracts that have tremendous potential depending on the desires of the buyer. Both are located in Pickens County close to Jasper. One is approximately 200 acres with no improvements, but mostly in pasture, some wooded areas, and a nice lake. This property also has wonderful long range views. It would make a truly outstanding large scale horse farm. The other has more than 400 acres mostly wooded, some pasture, a lake, several outbuildings, 4 homes including a main lodge and could easily be set up to be off the grid. With the security fencing that surrounds a major portion of the property, it would make an incredible family compound.
Now is a great time to buy land in north Georgia. The 10 to 20 acre tracts with pasture are still hard to find. However, larger tracts are now coming on the market and the pricing has reached a point that is reflective of the market conditions.
