PRICE REDUCED. SUWANNEE RIVER FRONTAGE. On the market for the first time in a generation, this property provides the sportsman with big deer, turkey and hogs, fishing and boating on the Suwannee River, and a multi-age productive timberland investment with farmland conversion opportunities in one.
Located along the banks of the beautiful Suwannee River near quiet Branford, FL, this property is an easy drive from nearly everywhere in Florida. Orlando and Tampa are just 2.5 hours away, Jacksonville and Tallahassee are 1.5 hours, and Gainesville is a mere hour drive. The property is made up of 77 acres of merchantable planted pine (some unthinned), 35 acres of pre-merchantable pine, and 283 acres of gorgeous Old Growth Florida live oak and hardwood hammock. The remainder of the acreage is in roads, food plots, and a borrow pit. There is an 8" well on the property that was previously used for watermelon irrigation. It will need an inspection and new pump, but the Seller believes it to still be functional should a buyer wish to convert the tract back to farmland. The property is over 90% upland.
The property has one lot on the Suwannee River with approximately 450' of river frontage with beautiful views from the bluffs. The Suwannee River is renowned for its ancient tree-lined banks and excellent fishing. Anglers can fish for trophy bass, bluegill, sunfish and channel cats.
Large adjacent and nearby properties include a high-fence hunting ranch and the State-owned Grady Conservation Area - both providing low hunting pressure on the local game populations. Deer genetics in the area are exceptional. The property has several established food plot areas including one fenced plot. The old growth native forest provides excellent habitat for the area's game species. Many multi-hundred year old live oaks and other hardwoods grow throughout the property, and the hardwood area is almost all clean and open underneath. It is a landscape that is quickly disappearing in the state and would be well worth preserving. Given that, the property would make a good conservation easement candidate for the right buyer.
The property includes several 1-acre lots along SE River Drive that could be sold off at a premium, providing future revenue for the buyer. Power is available off SE River Drive and is located at the property boundary at several locations.
