Sitting back off a country dirt road awaits this beautifully furnished home that’s move-in ready. As you approach the home on acreage, you’ll surely be impressed by its neatly manicured grounds which are mostly surrounded by a well-established vineyard. The vineyard is sure to offer unique farming opportunities if wanted, or you may just choose to kick back and enjoy the vineyard’s beauty and the quiet rural living. Regardless of what you decide, you’ll quickly see that you couldn’t have chosen a better area in which to reside. The current owners who’ve lived a lifetime in the community boast of great schools, friendly people, and all with the conveniences of town being just a short drive away. And if you’re an outdoorsman, you should definitely be excited about the locality of this property, especially with Florida treasures like Lake Seminole, Three Rivers State Park, and Apalachee Wildlife Management Area located only minutes down the way. The House: This 3,140 +/- Sq Ft, 4 Bedroom, 3 ½ Bath, custom built home originally built in 1973, has undergone numerous renovations throughout the years. The time and attention to detail that’s been put into the structure certainly bring about the charm and feel of a quaint country home but with added nuances of modern technologies. Renovations and improvements to the home include a complete kitchen remodel dating back to 2005, a master bathroom remodel, a new metal roof installed in late 2015, low voltage smart lighting that can be found throughout the family room and kitchen as well as two A/C units that are both operated under smart control. Or you may want to listen to surround sound music that can be enjoyed in the main living room area or outside under the large, covered patio. In addition, a mixture of both 24-volt and 120-volt wiring can be found throughout the remainder of the house. The home also includes two electric water heaters as well as a gas-operated fireplace to keep you warm on those cool winter days. Due to its rural location, the home utilizes both well and septic systems with the septic being cleaned, pumped, and maintained with a new field line as recent as January of 2022. Century-Link DSL internet is available. The house is in move-in condition and a definite must-see! The Land and Improvements Considered a diverse mix of ground, the combined acreage of this property totals just over 78 +/- acres. There are a couple of outbuildings on the grounds, including an older pole barn with power, a smaller storage building with insulation, and a window unit A/C. Water is obtained by way of (3) – 4-inch submersible wells which can be found around the property. Of course, one of the wells is near-to and responsible for supplying the home. The property itself features a main open ground area that creates a nice size lawn in front of the residence as well as another open pasture area that according to the sellers produces right at 18 round bales of hay per year. The open ground areas together total approximately 15.15 +/- acres. Surrounding the home and lawns lies approximately 18 +/- acres that are established in several varieties of bronze and purple muscadine or scuppernong Native American grape. To be more precise, the vineyard carries several grape-producing vines as well as pollinator vines including Granny Val, Black Ison, Early, Supreme, Sweet Ginny, and Black Beauty. Income-producing possibilities definitely exist with this excellent yielding vineyard. Although the vineyard is not being sold as a business, the sellers ran a profitable operation for many years and would be more than happy to advise the new owners with carrying the vineyard onward. The remaining acres support a recovering timberland area that’s on its way back from the effects of Hurricane Michael. With more plantings and timber management, this once great income-producing ground will be back as strong as ever. As of today, there are still a number of mature pines that remain and the area is thick with regenerative tree growth, serving as the perfect habitat for a variety of wild-game species. And for the Sportsman Living in the North Florida area has its benefits if you’re an outdoorsman but not many panhandle areas have access to so many world-class activities especially when they’re just right out your door. First, take advantage of your own 78 +/- acres and hunt both small and large game. The property holds plenty of whitetail deer and provides numerous sites to establish green fields and other game-feeding areas. Or decide to hunt the 8,000 acres that make up the Apalachee Wildlife Management Area, which is only 7.4 miles down the road. Or if freshwater fishing is your thing, help yourself to the public boat ramp that’s only a 3-minute car ride away…1.9 miles to be exact. From there, you’re free to access the 37,500 acres of water that makeup Lake Seminole. Enjoy world-class fishing north to Alabama or fish clear across to Georgia if you like. Or you may choose to walk down to the entrance of Three Rivers State Park. It shouldn’t take too long considering the park entrance is only about a mile from your driveway. From there, enjoy a day of bicycling the 9.7 miles of multi-use trails and paved roads. Or continue hiking the 9 plus miles of walking trails that make their way around the nearly 700-acre park. Or maybe you’d like to rent a canoe and paddle the cattails and lilies of the lake. Whatever floats your boat as far as the outdoors, this area has it! Give Jeff or Todd a call to schedule your private showing of this special property! Tours by appointment only.
