Description:

Just far enough that you can escape the 24/7 world knocking at your door, this riverfront acreage is balm to the soul and you don’t need a passport to get there. Federal Point and the St Johns River provide a window into the natural beauty this particular part of Florida has managed to retain, along with its low-key and laid back lifestyle. This beautiful 13.9 acre property presents 300+ feet of river frontage with a well-constructed bulkhead, dock and concrete boat ramp begging for your boat.

Built by and for people who have spent their life on the water, you won’t be disappointed by the quality. Old oaks and cypress trees dot the neighboring properties but this property is wide open so you have a blank canvas to create whatever suits your hobbies and passions. The present owner intended to use a portion as a landing strip for his personal plane so bear that in mind if you have such a need, but steer clear of the generous pond please. For the full-time or weekend equestrian, this will be a paradise for you and your equine friends with abundant room for stables and paddocks.

Let’s talk about the house: started in 2009, the design is classic with an outstanding wraparound porch on all four sides so you watch your two and four legged friends gambol around from all directions. Roofed, sided, with windows and doors in place, septic run to the house and a deep well (self sufficiency is a good thing), the interior is for you to complete. Instantly your mind goes to a favorite hunting lodge, fish camp or lakeside retreat and the design ideas start to flow. 1,600SF with a 400SF loft and the wraparound porch adds another 2,000SF. Before the river rivets away your attention, stop and take in the ceiling beam and rafter detail – the work of a craftsman should be appreciated.

The dock is less than a stone’s throw from the house so getting on the water with your gear is an easy task. The splashing is just the local mullet coming up for a breath of air and to check out what’s happening on the other side. Dining out will take on new meaning as you’ll want to cook the bass and catfish you catch.

Explore the river by boat and if the mood is right, you can head south to Gator Landing in Palatka or north to the Outback Crab Shack and let someone else do the heavy lifting in the kitchen. If this sounds like your idea of peace and quiet, set the GPS (it’s a bit tricky to find) and we’ll be waiting for you on the porch.
