Is an unusual property for current Elbert County, as it is reasonable size of over 1,000 acres of which nearly half is "in the trees". It is secluded by location, and yet borders an active subdivision. Present access could be restricted to the owner and agricultural (grazing) use. The other option is several of the development roads end at the fence line, and could provide access for other uses.
