Persimmon Valley Farm – Hall and Hall

    Elliott Davenport, Jr. owns and operates The Wings Group, the exclusive southeastern affiliate of Hall & Hall, a company who routinely ranks among the top land brokerages in the country. When the partners of Hall & Hall looked to expand to the southeast at the urging of clients, Elliott was their guy. A testament to this southerner’s work ethic, collaborative spirit, knowledge, and love of the land, the strategic partnership debuted in 2012 and has since provided southern land buyers and sellers access to a valuable marketing platform and an unrivaled set of skills.

    Some of the early outdoor experiences that shaped Elliott the most came from spending time with his family in a dove field on his great-grandfather’s land in north Georgia; land that is still in the family. Elliott’s love of bird hunting fuels a passion for land management designed to promote better habitat and recreational opportunities, while his BA in Finance from the University of Georgia supports the knowledge of real estate values and investment analysis that clients depend on.

    Elliott has a genuine desire to serve the land and those who share his love of these special places. An ethic of authenticity, backed by knowledge, is the foundation of The Wings Group’s success. Notable recent sales include the 7,235 acre Blue Springs Plantation and the 8,376 acre Abigail Plantation in Albany, GA; 4,563 acre Loveridge Plantation and 1,913 acre Twin Oaks Plantation in the Red Hills Plantation Belt of Thomasville/Tallahassee; Weymouth Plantation in the lowcountry of South Carolina near Georgetown; Meadow Creek’s 2,558 acres in Spencer, TN on the Cumberland Plateau; 556 acre East Fork Farm and 221 acre Horse Farm in Franklin, TN; the 840 acre Bennett’s Cove in northern Alabama; and several mountainside gentleman’s farms near Chickamauga, GA.

    Elliott, his wife, Rebecca, and their daughter, Ellie, live in Chattanooga, TN. Elliott is a self-proclaimed “land nut” and holds real estate licenses in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Illinois, and Kentucky.

    The master on main also hosts vaulted ceilings with French doors to the back porch and windows revealing the neighboring mountain range. The oversized master bathroom offers a “His Retreat” and “Her Retreat”, both with custom cabinets, large French-style vanities, tile floors, hefty walk-in closets, and private toilets. A walk-in shower is shared and “Her Retreat” also contains a sitting area adjacent to the French-inspired super tub. Downstairs there are two guest rooms, a shared bathroom, wine cellar that holds 800+ bottles, utility room, and a storage room that can easily be converted into a kitchen or kitchenette. Upstairs is currently used as a large playroom/bedroom with bathroom for the grandchildren but is suitable for an office or additional guest room. Above the two-car garage is another bedroom/office/nanny suite with bathroom. 

    Cherokee Cabin:  The smaller of the cabins, referred to as “The Cherokee Cabin,” is a former schoolhouse that was originally built sometime around 1750 and is rich with history. “The Cherokee Cabin” offers a quaint Southern front porch and one-bedroom loft-style interior living space. Outside on the porch, guests may enjoy the view overlooking the lower pond and “Yankee Barn” to the left, the vineyard/apple orchard to the right, and large meadows across Blue Ridge Gap Road.

    The Hemlock Cabin:  The larger cabin, referred to as “The Hemlock Cabin,” was built in 2004 by a highly acclaimed local builder, Anthony McCracken. “The Hemlock Cabin” offers a spacious wrap-around porch, two working wood burning fireplaces, several living spaces for entertaining, a kitchen with an iconic antique stove, bathroom on the main floor, and an upstairs loft-style bedroom. Sustainable-minded folks will be enthusiastic to learn that “The Hemlock Cabin” has the capacity to run off solar power, which was installed in 2021, and utilizes its own well pump. Outside, guests may enjoy the beautiful view of the upper pond and large Hemlock tree, hence the cabin’s nickname, while sitting next to an outdoor wood burning fireplace on the wrap-around porch, all while listening to the adjacent babbling stream. Your guests may never want to leave their respective cabin.

    Tractor Barn and Sheds:  This area supports the operations and maintenance of the farm. The tractor barn serves as another workshop and secure place to store large farm equipment out of the elements. The sheds are used to house additional equipment, trailers, and/or hay. Additionally, there are two above-ground fuel tanks – one tank holds 500 gallons of diesel and the second holds 1,000 gallons of gasoline. 

    Equestrian Barn & Round Pen:  The equestrian barn houses three indoor/outdoor stalls along with a tack room, equipment room, and hay storage loft. Outside the equestrian barn is a modest round pen adjacent to one of the fenced pastures.

    Run-In Shelter:  Across from the potting shed in the adjacent fenced pasture sits a timber-framed white stucco/stone barn that was built in 2016. Historically, this barn served as a run-in shelter for horses and is also perfect for storing hay or other farm supplies.
