Low Country Georgia's famed The Ford Plantation private sporting club community is expanding its offerings to equestrians. In addition to the Club’s state-of-the-art boarding and training facility, premium outdoor dressage and jump arenas, and miles of bridle paths, the Club is designating its Pecan Grove Paddock Estates neighborhood as one in which horse owners who want to keep their horses on their own property may do so.
Located at the southwest corner of the 1,800 acre property, the Pecan Grove Paddock Estates neighborhood is surrounded by nature preserve and adjacent to bridle paths that connect to the Plantation’s extensive trail system. Home sites range from 1.5 to 5 acres.
“We love having our horses at home with us, but we travel quite a bit so having the support of the Ford Plantation Equestrian Center is really ideal,” said property owner Peggy Gillinwater.
A total of 400 home sites are included within The Ford Plantation.. The property is shaded by ancient oaks with nearly a mile of deep water frontage on the Ogeechee River. Members enjoy a wealth of amenities including golfing, fishing, horseback riding, boating, racquet sports, swimming, sporting clays, hiking and biking, and fitness training. The club also offers superb regional cuisine, a full complement of spa services, a resident naturalist, and licensed professional fishing guides.
Formerly the site of Henry Ford's winter retreat, The Ford Plantation was one of the earliest land grants of the Georgia Colony which was founded by General James Oglethorpe in 1733. The land and coastal waters abound with migratory birds, fish, and game.
Home sites are priced from $100,000 with cottages and homes starting at $700,000. For more information about the lifestyle opportunity at The Ford Plantation, please contact John M.
