Indian Hill and its nearby Duke’s Pond offer the complete package in finished, turn-key outdoor enjoyment. The 130 acre parent tract is a nice blend of rolling agriculture, hardwoods, 32 acres of duck impoundments, flooded timber swamp, storage building, and a newly-built four-bedroom lodge. The lodge is tucked away on a hill overlooking a pond with a huge pasture/yard and is the perfect spot for family, friends, entertaining clients, or just enjoying a quiet fire. Immaculate interior design includes custom built barn-doors and window coverings made from century-old recovered wood, handmade stain glass, vaulted ceiling, lots of natural light and open space, and duck-themed rooms modeled after teal, woodies, mallards and redheads. Really unique, cool house. The 130 acres is loaded with deer, doves, turkeys, and hogs (the duck impoundments are fenced to prevent pig intrusion). Early on, the impoundments have shown promising signs of ringnecks, teal, wood ducks and mallards. There are several nice box stands and feeders on the property.
Duke’s Pond, currently planted in about 80 acres of corn and chufa, is located beside SCWA’s well-known Polebarn impoundment. It’s simply a proven duck spot, and it has been loaded with birds all season. Based on all of our observations, this seems to be about as consistent as it gets for multiple species of waterfowl year in, year out.
