Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States and a leader in the sale of luxury and unique properties, has listed a 330-acre working farm in Magnolia, Del. Jackewicz Farms, located at 2955 Walnut Shade Rd., has been under the meticulous care and stewardship of the same family for more than 60 years. The farm is listed by Long & Foster’s Chiqui Gavilan and Marisa Chaves of The Chaves-Gavilan Team, and its price is available upon request.

“As a ‘last of its kind’ single largest tract available in the area, Jackewicz Farms is truly in a league of its own,” Gavilan said. “Ensconced within Kent County’s coveted Growth Zone, the estate is nestled in a picturesque setting, yet centrally located near national nature preserves for migratory wildlife, five-star beaches, year-round resort and maritime towns, 18-hole championship golf courses, universities, museums and casinos.”

“This unique opportunity simply doesn’t often come along,” Chaves said. “Given current market and growth trends in Delaware, we believe the potential upside for the forward-looking buyer is significant.”

Jackewicz Farms is opportunely situated within Kent County’s Growth Zone and has wide roadway frontage on key trucking routes, as well as on Voshell Pond. The farm’s temperate climate resembles the Bordeaux region of France and boasts rich sassafras soil and abundant wildlife. Being located in the Growth Zone also means the land is suitable for a variety of uses, including low-density one-third to 10-acre, single-family home residential development, vineyards, field-to-bottle production of quality spirits, utility-scale solar farms, golf courses and more. The property’s Agricultural Conservation zoning allows for even more flexibility in its potential uses.

The first parcel includes what is known as the “Home Farm,” and is comprised of 138.9 acres with five buildings on the complex, including a packing/warehouse/cold storage facility, labor housing, a vehicle shed, a truck shop, and four 800-gallon gas and diesel fuel tanks that are above ground and pad mounted. Parcels two and three of the property are known as the “Ranch.” They are comprised of 191.5 acres, which includes a state-of-the-art cell phone tower.

Nestled in the Delaware countryside, Jackewicz Farms is centrally located just a few minutes from five-star beaches, year-round resort towns and world-class recreation facilities. Its strategic location offers quick access to major metropolitan areas and several international and local airports. The state of Delaware is well known for its rich heritage, scenic byways, bountiful farmland, low taxes and business-friendly climate.

“Consumers recognize that Long & Foster’s vast selection of properties offer them a range of options when it comes to choosing the right home or investment property, whether their choices are based on price, location, size, style or a home’s history,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “More clients turn to Long & Foster to help them through the buying or selling process because they know their properties will be marketed by the best-trained and most knowledgeable sales associates.”
