Freeport Florida Bayfront Island for Sale

Posted by Destin Real Estate Sales on Thursday, January 7th, 2021 at 9:45am.

Are you looking to find a unique waterfront home site to build your Forever Home? How about a site that resembles an island that sits right on Jolly Bay, which connects directly to Choctawhatchee Bay? This special property at 49 Island Way in Freeport, Florida, is now available.

It is a unique home site that faces the Jolly bay and is surrounded by the private "Bear Creek Canals" on the other three sides. 

It is connected to the mainland by two one-lane bridges from a family waterfront estate. It gracefully arches over the "canal" and connects immediately to the property. The bridge and a driveway easement are included in the purchase price.

This incredible private property located in Freeport just east of the Route 331 Bridge places you just a twenty-minute ride away from the public access at Blue Mountain Beach next to the sugary white shores of the Gulf of Mexico. However, you may never want to leave this natural paradise! Fishing is fantastic here since you can catch both salt and fresh water species on the beautiful bay—an abundance of Speckled Trout, Striped Bass, Redfish, Grouper, Flounder, and Spanish Mackerel. There are also crabs, clams, and shrimp.

You may dock a shallow bottom boat or pontoon at this site and cruise on over to the wetlands' extensive natural preserve. The beautiful wetlands include Spanish moss-draped Cypress trees, river tributaries, and pristine islands in a remote area that makes you feel like you are in South America. You may see ospreys and eagles nesting in the trees. You may also head on over to Destin to HarborWalk Village or enjoy joining a big boat party at Crab Island!

This island homesite provides privileged privacy since an extensive amount of land acreage towards the west and north includes a pristine undeveloped protected marshlands area on an adjoining island and can never be built upon. It provides a thriving natural habitat that is frequented by Great Blue Herons and Snowy White Egrets. Sunsets here are truly spectacular year-round, and during the summer months, magical full moons cast their silvery sparkling glow across the bay towards the south.

The current owner of this property has a large lovely home on the family estate beside it and has already secured permits from the county to build a 5,500 square foot home on this site. The purchase price includes house plans and a septic tank's designated placement to take care of sewage. Electrical service can be connected from the property next door. These plan designs are all available to the new owner and available upon request to earnest buyers.

This amazing unique property with over one acre as a residential site for an ultimate bayfront island home is listed for $599,000. Currently, there are no other islands available for sale, which is hardly surprising!
