North Carolina Plantation For Sale Profiled by Bloomberg

We were excited to see Willow Oaks Plantation profiled by Bloomberg.com.  The beautiful and diverse property comprised of 1,769± acres is situated on the Dan River in Rockingham County, North Carolina. It is an incredibly rich and bountiful recreational hunting property.  This area of North Carolina is regarded as the state’s trophy belt for whitetail deer and Willow Oaks is known to be one of its premiere spots.

An excerpt from the article reads: Although the plantation is vast, potential buyers will find that it requires “very little maintenance,” Dick said. When he acquired it, it was run as a dairy farm, but he got rid of the cows and turned the barn and other facilities into a guest lodge. (In Byrd’s time, the property was almost entirely wild; subsequent owners converted it into a large-scale farm.) Dick said that when he bought the land, “it’s not that it was mismanaged; it just wasn’t managed at all.” Grazing pastures were overgrown, roads on the property were eroded, and the 7,722-square-foot house had fallen into disrepair. “I did a total renovation of the house,” he said. “I actually put it up on temporary supports in order to redo its foundation. You name it, I did it.”
