REDUCED!!! 24.02 Acres in Melrose…..breathtaking property!!! This is one of the properties that brings to mind “Old Florida”. A veritable forest of moss draped Live Oaks - many grandaddys. Low understory, park like - you can drive most of it even though there are no trails. It is really beautiful!!! Located in charming Melrose on the south side of SR 26. The property consists of 3 tax parcel numbers and possibly could be divided-the westernmost parcel has a fee simple access and the other 2 have easements. The property is fenced - used to have goats. There was a mobile home with well and septic. Power is still on. A nice pole barn and a CBS barn/shop are located near the north side. The barn/shop was used for a milking operation for the goats and is in fair condition. Much of the equipment is in disrepair or missing. The pole barn is in good condition.
A mobile home was situated near the west side of the property but has been removed. The property has a well and septic - both being sold “As Is” as the seller is not sure of the condition. Another septic is located near the pole barn.
The property is located in Melrose - a small friendly town situated about 25 minutes east of Gainesville and south and east of the 5800 acre Lake Santa Fe. This is truly a gem of a lake-beautiful and fun. Fish, boat, ski-all within minutes of this property. Melrose, while small, is quite self-sufficient - several charming restaurants, a grocery stores, hardware store and more.
