Tarva Pines is located in the heart of the Baker/Dougherty County plantation region, which makes it a great get-away for the family looking for a property that’s not too far from Albany, or for the retiring couple that values the benefits of rural living but not the draw backs that can come from unregulated housing in rural areas.
The guest house at Tarva Pines (built in 2009) has just over 1,000 square feet of cooled and heated living space and has the ideal size and quality appointments that make it an excellent retreat for years to come. The guest house has a master suite and private bath as well as a second guest bedroom/bath. The open floor plan for the remainder of the home includes a full service kitchen and a large open living room. The home has an over-sized wrap-around porch on all sides that affords guests a waterfront view of the pond and is an ideal space for entertaining friends and family.
The pond at Tarva Pines was built by the present owner in 2008 with the goal of maintaining the “Plantation” look and feel of the area, which is reflected in the care that was taken to ensure the survival of the natural cypress trees in the pond. Cypress trees also provide nesting sites for various species of birds and cover for the fish that have been stocked in the pond. To help maintain the level of the pond during times of drought the property has a 4” well dedicated to the pond.
The land at Tarva Pines, excluding 5 acres for the pond and 5 acres in pasture, is all in plantation style woodlands. Tarva Pines takes advantage of the surrounding properties being used for the same “like” purpose that gives the tract a rich, diverse, and huntable wildlife population.
