A massive quail hunting plantation in Florida’s Leon County is on the market for nearly $30 million, making it the most expensive ranch property for sale in the region.

The more than 4,500-acre property sits on 1.25 miles of Lake Miccosukee frontage near the Florida-Georgia border. The ranch has 14 quail hunting routes, 10 horses and a dog kennel with 49 dogs, including English cocker retrievers, pointers, derby dogs and puppies, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The main house is almost 5,800 square feet with four bedrooms. The property also has a caretaker’s house and a home for the kennel manager.

The plantation, on the market for $29.6 million, is being sold by the grandchildren of George H. Love, who helped lead both Consolidated Coal and Chrysler to profitability. Love bought the ranch in 1946 from the wife of the late New Jersey Gov. Walter Edge, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The ranch is now owned by Howard Love’s five children, who vacation on the property and also lease it to other quail hunters. [WSJ]  — Keith Larsen
