This beautiful and diverse landscape comprised of 1,769 acres, known since the 1800s as Willow Oaks Plantation, is situated on the Dan River in Rockingham County, North Carolina. Willow Oaks is an incredibly rich and bountiful recreational hunting property. This area of North Carolina is regarded as the states trophy belt for whitetail deer and Willow Oaks is known to be one of its garden spots. However, it is the diversity of the wildlife that makes this property a true gem. Manicured sunflower fields produce dove hunts that will leave family and friends anxious to return. On spring mornings, echoes of gobbling turkeys will be heard from all corners of the property. Known to be a micro-flyway, the managed waterfowl impoundments off the Dan River provide duck hunts rarely found in this state, and of notable mention is that significant portions of the propertys habitat have been optimized for quail hunting and an exciting release program has been implemented. Where there is fowl, there should be fin and Willow Oaks has two good six-acre fishing lakes along with a number of fishing opportunities on the Dan River. Other recreation abounds and the property would make for a world-class equestrian compound with some of this infrastructure already in place. Perhaps one of the more exquisite features of the plantation is the main house. Originally built in 1825, the homes historical character and charm have been meticulously maintained while modern amenities have been added.
