Hutson Ranch Up For Grabs in Jacksonville
- Mar 16, 2016
Jacksonville, Fla.—Davidson Realty Inc. was hired to market the Hutson Ranch in St. Johns County for $61.2 million. The real estate agency is selling the 8,427-acre ranch located south of Jacksonville, Fla., in four distinct parcels: two highly amenitized parcels offering equestrian facilities and residential opportunities, and two parcels with classic silvicultural properties with drainage and roadway systems.
According to Sharon Davidson, president of Davidson Realty, this new opportunity is in response to the expressed interest of the broader market. “By offering the ranch in four parcels, purchasers will be able to better meet their individual investment goals,” Davidson said.
The 2,755-acre Northwest Quadrant, the largest quadrant among the four, is suitable for equestrian operations, wildlife management, timber management coupled with natural and maintained forest areas. The quadrant is equipped with two 2,600-foot airstrips, stables and paddocks along with a two-story, over-water house extending on a 50-acre lake, favorable for a family or personal homestead as well as for a business retreat. A connection to State Road 207 also provides development potential for all or part of the northwest quadrant. The listing price for this quadrant is $28.9 million, according to the Hutson Ranch website.
The second largest quadrant, the Northeast Quadrant situated on 2,468 acres, is a two-square-mile, managed timber forest with wildlife habitat and four miles of highway frontage. Other features include 4 miles of perimeter high fencing, improved high-and-dry roads with functioning site drainage and gated access drives. The listing price for the Northeast Quadrant is $10.1 million.
The Southwest Quadrant, located six miles west of I-95 and four miles east of Hastings, sits on 1,732 acres and is the third largest parcel. The parcel features a vintage 1962 Neoclassical/Greek revival, 11,000-square-foot manor home, three residence houses, pine and hardwood forestlands, and 240 acres of leased agricultural land. The Quadrant is adaptable to both equestrian and cattle operations and based on its location and features, together with its history and heritage, it could be developed as a senior retirement community. Other amenities include a 12-acre recreational lake, 65 acres of 4-board fenced pasture, 4.5 miles of perimeter high fencing, deep artesian wells, improved roads and site drainage, and FPL power service. The listing price for this quadrant is $16.2 million.
The Southeast Quadrant occupying 1,472 acres with an asking price of $6 million is the fourth largest quadrant, a one-by-two-mile managed timber forest with wildlife habitat located three miles west of Interstate 95. Features include improved high-and-dry roads with functioning site drainage and gated access drives.
“Buyers can anticipate both immediate and future revenue from any ranch quadrant. The land itself is beautiful with an extensive list of existing and potential uses on each quadrant. Each parcel represents an excellent opportunity for buyers wanting an investment in the development and growth we continue to experience in St. Johns County,” said Jim Davidson, president of The Davidson Companies.
