Location, location, location! Welcome to river life!  This premier river retreat is your opportunity to own a part of paradise with 1,600 feet of waterfront on the Apalachicola River (over 1,100 feet of basin waterfront).  With a ¼ mile entrance and breathtaking views, this private 54+/- acres is truly a rare gem! It is only one of two privately owned riverfront properties in Jackson County.  The Apalachicola River is one of North Florida’s most scenic rivers and offers the highest diversity of freshwater fish species in the state, resulting in some of the best fishing in the Florida Panhandle.  On any given day, you can catch black bass, hybrids, striped bass, white bass, bluegill, shell cracker, crappy, channel cat or flatheads right from the bank.  Or, jump in your boat and take a short cruise down the river where you can gig flounder – right off of a sandbar!  

The property is located approximately 2 miles below Jim Woodruff Dam, separating Lake Seminole from the Apalachicola River.  With over 37,000 acres, Lake Seminole offers anglers some of the most prolific bass fishing in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.  An easily accessible boat ramp at the front of the property allows travel by boat to the Gulf of Mexico or you can navigate through the lochs at the Dam and enter Lake Seminole.  From this point, you can continue enjoying the endless recreational opportunities river life has to offer as you work your way to the Chattahoochee River, Flint River, and Spring Creek into Georgia.  Along the river bank there is an abundance of wildlife including white tail deer and bald eagles.  And at dusk the owls begin their symphony of calls.  With this in mind, it is easy to imagine life immersed in the beauty of the river.  

Another impressive feature of the property is a 14’ X 30’ tiny home that sits on an expansive 300’ X 200’ concrete platform offering pristine views over the river.  A 200’ X 100’ metal barn is also located on the platform that includes 5 camper hookups and a 5th wheel camper with three slide-outs.  

Additionally, two acres of the property is zoned commercial – opening up endless opportunities for a business venture that might include an RV park or campsite.  This hidden gem is truly a coveted find that offers privacy, adventure, and immediate access to a fisherman’s paradise.  Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, it is the perfect opportunity to establish a unique and beautiful homesite.  Call today to schedule a private showing.
