Hall and Hall Plantation Featured by Bloomberg Pursuits

An $11.5 million North Carolina plantation listed by Hall and Hall was featured by Bloomberg Pursuits recently, which noted that it dates to before the American Revolution. James Tarmy wrote that the property was part of a 26,000-acre tract named “Land of Eden” in a marketing ploy to entice Europeans to settle there. It “had passed through just six different owners’ hands but had been whittled down to about 770 acres” by 2001. The current owner bought several neighboring tracts to expand it to nearly 1,800 acres and uses it as a hunting retreat. Read the Bloomberg Pursuits...

Cowboys & Indians Magazine Visits Red Reflet Ranch in Wyoming

Cowboys & Indians magazine recently highlighted the horseback activities available at Red Reflet Ranch in Ten Sleep, Wyoming. Set in the red Chugwater rock formation, the 30,000-acre guest ranch has miles of trails – some designed for hiking, some for ATVs, but riding horses is the most popular activity. Writer Victoria Mechler noted that the ranch offers more than just “nose-to-tail trail rides,” however. With the only indoor arena in the area, roping and barrel racing practice is possible, and guests receive one-on-one time with wranglers and rodeo champs. Chalets at the ranch include fully stocked kitchens for breakfast, while guests and ranch owners Bob and Laurence Kaplan gather in the main lodge for family-style meals and lively conversation at lunch and dinner.

Jon Kohler & Associates, Hall and Hall Red Hills real estate in Wall Street Journal

Jon Kohler & Associates and Hall and Hall real estate listings in the Red Hills quail-hunting region on the Georgia-Florida border were featured by the Wall Street Journal recently. The first story, by writer Nancy Keates, examined the quail-hunting heritage of the nearly 300,000-acre region and efforts to sell or donate lands for conservation. Jon Kohler of brokerage firm Jon Kohler & Associates said about two-thirds of the 200 plantations in the Red Hills remain with the descendants of the original owners, or with friends and acquaintances. “It was an unspoken rule not to sell to anyone outside the circle,” Kohler told Keates. The second story, by Candace Taylor, detailed the sale of the 7,235-acre Blue Springs Plantation in South Georgia for roughly $40 million. Hall and Hall’s Elliott Davenport Jr. represented the buyer, an avid hunter who had been looking at the plantation for over a year. Read the Wall Street Journal’s Red Hills story.

Conde Nast Traveler highlights Mir Corporation, Big Chill Adventures

A story about adventures on ice highlighted trips to Russia and Greenland by Mir Corporation and Big Chill Adventures. Sophy Roberts wrote of her 300-mile adventure across Siberia by dogsled, snowmobile, hovercraft and railroad, and getting to stand on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal. “While the romance is alluring, the realities of Siberia are forbidding, and require expert guidance. I find my man in Douglas Grimes, founder of the U.S.-based travel company Mir Corporation, which has 30 years’ experience in Russia,” Roberts wrote. In accompanying information on other icy locations, Roberts wrote that Big Chill Adventures’ “12-night tour of west Greenland is the best I’ve found.” Read the Conde Nast Traveler story...
