Sportsman’s Paradise 25 Minutes from the Beach

Posted by Destin Real Estate Sales on Thursday, October 29th, 2015 at 9:28am.

Rarely does such a precious piece of natural paradise come on the market, especially when it also comes with plans for an approved platted subdivision with fourteen lots. This rare gem includes a pristine Florida forested area that extends across almost 54 acres next to the Choctawhatchee River with access to the beautiful bay. It is truly a “sportsman’s paradise” since this amazing land has an abundance of wildlife, native Floridian flora and fauna. The 14 platted lots comprise over eight acres of buildable land while the other forty-five acres is set aside as a remarkable natural habitat. The forest, wetlands and waterways are teaming with wild game such as deer, turkey, waterfowl and fish. The river and bay have a cornucopia of Striped Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel and Catfish.

This property is located in Freeport off Highway 20 at the far eastern end of Choctawhatchee Bay which has been deemed one of the cleanest basin waterways in the nation.  The forested uplands thrive with wildlife among towering pines, oak trees and magnolias. The bottomlands include lush poplars, ancient cypress trees draped with Spanish moss and creeks that meander into the river eventually leading out to the bay. This property would make a great family camp for private individuals but may also be sold in up to fourteen separate parcels for individual cabins, cottages or RVs. It may be used as a fishing club or for hunting enthusiasts by a group of friends since the expense of the purchase price could be easily spilt fourteen ways with an individual buildable parcel designated for each person. Direct access to the Choctawhatchee River is already available at a well maintained paved public boat ramp which is conveniently located right across from this property. Traveling by boat along these waterways is a true adventure out of time and space. The forest and Cypress studded marshlands along the shoreline are untouched since it has never been developed. Much of this area is considered to be an “old growth” forest here in Florida because it has essentially remained the same in its natural state forever. This makes travel by boat a truly sublime adventure since one feels like they are on an adventurous exploration of a frontier wilderness. Besides the abundance of fish you catch sight of Great Blue Herons, Egrets, American Bald Eagles, Brown Pelicans and Osprey in their natural habitat.  Many of these birds may be seen nesting along the banks of the river and its myriad of multiple tributaries which all interconnect at the eastern end of the bay.

This amazing property is available for $375,000 which averages out at only about $6,900 per acre for the entire piece. If a group of your family and friends split the cost of purchase it would only cost $26,785 each for your piece of partnering this sportsman’s paradise.
