Description: With a history dating back almost 200 years, El Destiono Plantation was established in 1828 by a land grant from the Territory of Florida. Today, this 4988+/- acre property is a beautiful representation of a classic Red Hills plantation. The intensively managed quail habitat is further complemented by an incredible 34 acre plant and flood duck pond, numerous dove fields, and stocked fishing ponds, alongside optimal deer and turkey habitat. Steeped in history, El Destino was home to a Spanish Mission in 1655 and still possesss a remarkable live oak allee leading through mature longleaf forest to the original plantation homesite. As a large scale antebellum plantation, it included its own church, commissary, and grist mill (later burned in a skirmish with native Americans- hence the name Burnt Mill Creek). A canal was constructed along the creek to barge the plantations cotton to market on the nearby St. Marks River and Gulf of Mexico beyond. This exceptional mix of wildlife, history, and terrain makes El Destino the most interesting and diverse property on the market today. The property adjoins one of Ted Turners famed quail plantations and is less than 12 miles from the capital city of Florida. El Destino is a rare opportunity to own the largest plantation footprint available in the area and is a prime candidate for a conservation easement.
