When it comes to location, dirt, and design, Kickapoo is among the finest and most desirable in the southeast.
With over a mile of frontage on scenic US Highway 319, in the esteemed Red Hills region, the 444± acre Kickapoo is just seven miles to downtown Thomasville, Georgia and approximately 15 minutes to the Bradfordville area of Tallahassee, Florida. Immediate neighboring plantations include Pebble Hill, Longpine, Warbick Farms, and Trinity Place. Once part of the Ireland family landholdings, Kickapoo has long been managed for the proliferation of wild quail. The land is beautiful and rolling and consists of nearly 100% uplands with the exception of the ponds.
An alley of live oaks leads to a circular drive showcasing the main house which is flanked by two guest bungalows, all in a matching style and designed with great attention to scale. The main house is quite unassuming from the front, yet is 8,786± square feet with another 2,700± square feet of outdoor living space, much of which showcases expansive views of the lake and piney woods beyond. Additional improvements are equally well done and include a three-car garage with gun room and bunk room, an owner’s office, dog kennels, beautiful horse stable and fenced pasture, equipment barn, and a staff house.
Properties of Kickapoo’s quality and location don’t trade often in this region and The Wings Group was honored to put this deal together.

Located between Thomasville, Georgia and Tallahassee, Florida, the Red Hills Region is a 300,000-acre area known for its rolling hills, red clay soils, and diverse ecosystems. It had long been a winter destination for wealthy northerners who came for the mild weather and quail hunting. Sportsmen found that quail flourished in the region and the fast burst of a covey rise was an excitement beyond comparison. It motivated these early landowners to pull together the resources to study and detail the best land management practices for these upland ecosystems and due to their efforts, the Red Hills is revered today as one of the “Last Great Places” in rural America. What it offers for a wing-shooting enthusiast simply cannot be found elsewhere.
The cities north and south of this block of land offer great entertainment and cultural events. Thomasville is a charming southern town and was recently labeled the second best historic small town in the country by USA Today. Its original bricked roads have been uncovered along many of the downtown streets that take visitors to delightful dining options, boutiques, and shops featuring everything from high-end sporting attire to locally-made handcrafted goods. Tallahassee is Florida’s capital city and is home to three universities, museums, two large hospitals, and a variety of shopping and dining options.
