OLD HORNE FARM
715± Deeded Acres
Tucked into the foothills of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains, this historic 715± acre farm embodies the best qualities of north Georgia land. Purchased from the Cherokee Nation along with 14,000± additional acres in 1832, Old Horne Farm is a piece of the legacy of Farish Carter, an essential figure of Georgia’s pre-Civil War economy and the namesake for the city of Cartersville. Farish chose a spot just up the road from Old Horne as his family’s summer residence, a testament to the allure of this area. Old Horne Farm consists of fertile farmland that gradually moves into rolling forested hills that overlook the scenic countryside below. One of the properties highlights is the adjacent 3,200± acre Carter’s Lake, the deepest of Georgia’s reservoir lakes and an incredibly rich recreational body of water. Old Horne Farm is just 20 miles from Ellijay, GA, one of North Georgia’s prized mountain towns, and 65 miles from Atlanta, providing many wonderful conveniences.
Situated within the transition of two distinct Georgia regions, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Valley and Ridge region, Old Horne Farm has a tremendous amount of landscape diversity both within its own boundaries and in relation to how an owner engages with the surrounding area. The property offers elevation changes of 600 feet that take one from fertile agricultural fields to mountain peaks with spectacular views. These landscape changes create wonderful aesthetics, and the proximity to Ellijay and Carter’s Lake transforms the lifestyle the property is able to provide.
