It is offered for sale in its entirety by sealed bid. The bid opening will be onsite, just inside the Highnote Drive gate, on Thursday, November 7, 2019, at 10AM.
Driving through or walking through the 1548 +/- acre Mulberry Grove tract gives the feel of a national forest. Other than 39 +/- acres of openings, the rolling property is all well to heavy stocked quality hardwood and pine timber in sawtimber stage. The majority is natural timber and the majority of the property is upland, and there are numerous gorgeous creek bottoms, and some pine plantations in sawtimber stage. The hardwood consist of grade red and white oaks, water oaks, poplar, hickory, sweetgum, and other hardwoods. The pine is mostly loblolly, with some shortleaf and longleaf. All of the primary roads were recently professionally reworked, a few new roads and rocked creek crossings were added, and some trails were improved to primary roads. There is frontage on both sides of Striblin Creek, plus numerous smaller creeks, and numerous potential pond and lake sites. There is paved road frontage on GA Hwy 315 and Highnote Drive, electric, and county water.
The surrounding area is highly desired residential, in high demand by those living and working in and around Columbus and Fort Benning. Across the street is a new development being built now with homes starting around $275K, E C Pate Sports Park, Creekside School, and Mulberry Elementary School. About 2.5 miles to the West is I-185 and from there it is under 10 minutes to desirable retail area of northern Columbus GA, or about 20 minutes to historic downtown Columbus on the Chattahoochee River. Just to the north is Pine Mountain, Warm Springs, FD Roosevelt State Park, and the Little White House. Mulberry Grove is one of the last remaining large contiguous properties in South Harris County GA, and is likely the only one this large so heavily timbered with such good paved road frontage and internal access.
