1,900 + Acre Kenansville Cattle Ranch with Great Recreational Value

This Kenansville Ranch has been in the same agricultural family for over 40 years.  This is a working cattle ranch that is set up right, and priced right!  Cow pens are located in the middle of the property,  from the cow pens, lanes run the entire length of the ranch and connect with multiple pastures for a good rotational grazing program.  The soils are good and consist of primarily Myakka, Malabar and Riviera soil types.  Numerous permitted artesian wells provide irrigation for some pastures and clean fresh water for the cattle. 

You will enjoy an exceptional diversity of woods on this property, from an absolutely gorgeous array of oaks, cypress, maples and cabbage palm hammocks to beautiful tall pine woods with palmettos.  The woods meander throughout the ranch, giving the property an attractive appearance, as well as excellent cover for the wildlife.  Ox Creek flows from west to east the entire length of the ranch.  This creek and all other tributaries and ditches drain to the large canal on the east side of the property, which is owned by the ranch and connects to Kenansville Lake.  This gives you boat access to Kenansville Lake and thousands of acres of the Upper St Johns River Basin.

This Kenansville Ranch property is currently unencumbered by any conservation easements.  But, all the attributes of this property certainly make it a good candidate, due to the property adjoining the Upper St. Johns River Basin on the east side and numerous private ranches, in close proximity that are presently under conservation easements. 

Due to the fact the deer population has been hunted by bow only for the past 15 years, you will enjoy excellent deer, turkey and hog hunting.  Long bearded gobblers are abundant on this ranch for the turkey hunting enthusiast.  You have some of the best duck hunting and freshwater fishing in the state at your front door via Kenansville Lake.

The impressive rustic lodge has a cedar wood exterior and is surrounded by 4 guest residences in a beautiful oak hammock, with a large pond fed by an artesian well.  The lodge has a large open floor plan, with a huge stone fireplace in the center of the room, beautiful hardwood floors, tongue and groove cypress walls throughout.  The tongue and groove cathedral ceiling is accented with pecky cypress beams.  There is an exquisite elk and deer antler chandelier hanging in the center of the living room that gives the entire room a warm and western atmosphere.  Across the back is a large screened porch where you can relax while you watch deer and turkey stroll through the yard.  The lodge was designed for entertaining a large number of guests, but is still cozy and comfortable.  The lodge has a well equipped kitchen with a six burner gas stove, dishwasher, Sub Zero freezer and refrigerator.  There is a nice laundry room off of kitchen.  Also, on the screened porch, off of the kitchen there is a stainless steel grill and gas fryer.  Close by the lodge compound is a five stand skeet shooting range.  Ideally located at the entrance of the ranch is a residence for the ranch foreman.
