If privacy and nature are what you are looking for, look no further! This hidden waterfront retreat offers a half acre of oak hammocks and water frontage directly on Holmes Creek (a beautiful waterway that provides among the most diverse habitats and richest variety of fish and wildlife in the Choctawhatchee River basin). While on the water or casting from your own private concrete boat ramp, you will certainly enjoy fishing for local favorites such as largemouth bass, crappie, bream, mullet, and catfish. In addition, Holmes Creek maintains an outstanding habitat for ducks, deer, turkeys and other native wildlife the Florida Panhandle has to offer. And, all of this at your back door! Tucked down a secluded drive, the 1,500 square foot, two-story home features three bedrooms, two full baths, and two screened porches – overlooking the creek. These extended spaces epitomize Florida living, offering scenic views of Holmes Creek. Either would be the ideal spot to wind down after a busy day of kayaking, fishing, or canoeing. This is a unique opportunity to create your own personal creek retreat, wildlife sanctuary, or primary residence.  This Holmes Creek home site is a nature lover’s paradise and defines what privacy and relaxation truly means. Call today for a private showing!
