Often times, real estate is all about location and beyond a shadow of a doubt, Braewood’s location is just perfect. Braewood is surrounded by some of the most productive quail plantations of all time. The property is two miles south of Metcalf, Georgia and the eastern boundary fronts Norias Road. Braewood is the most southeastern corner of Beechwood Plantation and the most northwestern corner of Jefferson County, Florida. The Florida-Georgia state line serves as the property’s northern boundary. Braewood is surrounded by Sunny Hill, Wildwood, and Beechwood Plantations. It is a short drive to both Thomasville (15 minutes) and Tallahassee (25 minutes). This location offers the opportunity to own a small tract surrounded by large plantations and may prove to be a great toehold for expanding in the future.
The convenience to the surrounding area is an attribute of Braewood’s. This area of the south is steeped in history providing a setting rich with culture.

Red Hills Plantation Belt: The Red Hills is a region of gently rolling hills that, post-Civil War, became a desirable place for wealthy northerners to acquire large tracts of land for the purpose of wintering and recreating. The recreation has been all about the bobwhite quail, as this area produces ideal habitat for their existence and it is here you will find the country’s strongest populations of wild quail. The fact the landscape today remains largely intact is a testament to the current and previous plantation owners and their dedication to stewardship and conservation. When your interests are the pursuit of upland birds, the Red Hills Plantation Belt is an area unto itself and worthy of a visit.
Lying within the United States’ humid subtropical zone, this area offers long warm summers and the most pleasant and mild of winters. Between November and March, the daily high temperatures average 68 degrees and low temperatures on average are 44 degrees. Precipitation usually peaks during the summer months with an average annual rainfall totaling 53 inches. The annual snowfall is reported as zero inches.
Certain southern landscapes are known for being enchanting and the Red Hills area captures this essence. Picture gigantic live oak trees drenched in Spanish moss, towering pine trees, and English Pointers traversing the wiregrass landscapes…it is truly brilliant!
