Escape Ranch, Estate of the Day
Orrin Ingram, the CEO of Ingram Industries and Ingram Book Company is the owner of today's property, the massive Escape Ranch in Kenansville, Florida. This property is around 13,952 acres fronting U.S. Highway 441 about 40 miles southeast of Orlando. This expansive estate is considered to be one of the finest quail plantations in the southeast. It has been managed for wild quail for many years with no expense spared to maximize populations of wild birds. Across the property well maintained dirt and grass roads provide complete access to the quail courses. The property also offers hunting for trophy quality deer as well as turkey and waterfowl. There are also two ponds on the property.
The six-bedroom lodge is designed with spacious suites and comfortable public areas and currently decorated with all manner of animal trophies. There is also a two-bedroom guest house and staff quarters. The ranch has the capacity to run up to 2000 cows that help to maintain the quail habitat and absorb some of the expenses. The property is being offered turnkey including furnishings, equipment, dogs, livestock, and vehicles for $35 million through Hall and Hall.
