A former president of Florida State University and his wife want $10.7 million for a 984-acre hunting plantation about 30 miles from Tallahassee.

The property, called Oak Hill Plantation, has an 8,000-square-foot house and large populations of quails, doves, turkeys and deer. It also has a 15-acre lake fed by a spring and live oak trees that are 200 to 300 years old.

The owners are former FSU president T.K. Wetherell and his wife, Virginia Wetherell, who served as secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection from 1991 to 1998 and in the Florida House of Representatives from 1982 to 1988.

T.K. Wetherell also served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1982 to 1992 and was Speaker of the House from 1990 to 1992.

The Wetherells’ plantation in the Red Hills region of the Florida Panhandle is adjacent to Avalon Plantation, owned by Ted Turner, the founder of cable television news outlet CNN.

In addition to the five-bedroom, four-bathroom main house at Oak Hill Plantation, the property comes with a 1,600-square-foot guest house and a gathering lodge with a living room, kitchen and loft bedroom, plus an attached workshop and barn. [Atlanta Business Chronicle] – Mike Seemuth
