Location: Mansfield, Georgia
Located less than an hour outside of Atlanta, Bear Creek Farm, a sprawling 80-acre property with multiple outbuildings, was built as a labor of love over many years by a couple of owners who always discovered something new in its charms. The land for the property was first bought in 1975 to be a weekend retreat, later serving as a horse stable and now operating as a hunting venue.
The main five-bedroom, 2,321-square-foot home was created from an antique log cabin, a corn crib, field rock and trees found on the property, as well as salvaged wood from other cabins throughout the state. The result is a rambling, rustic estate with rich character including wide plank floors, generous space for entertaining like the great room, screened porch, and covered deck, and a special connection to the land on which it was constructed. Its decor scheme alone is enough to get your attention: This is the kind of place that all Brooklyn-inspired bars and restaurants—and any trendy interior, for that matter—aspire to be. Except this is wholly authentic.
If that isn’t enough, the property also boasts a guest cabin, art studio, red barn, a pole barn, and five ponds. In terms of its farming potential, a dove field, and three food plots cultivated for deer and turkey also figure on the grounds. Truly a southern original, Bear Creak Farm, located at 1940 Macedonia Road, is asking $1,300,000. Will you be the one to continue its tradition?
