Only rarely will you find a property in Florida that can afford the same opportunities as this tract. Nestled at the end of a gated and paved 4000' drive, you'll find 34 Acre Lake Wilson which boasts what may be the greatest depths of any private lake in Florida at Nearly 30 feet. The stocked lake serves as the backdrop for the custom built 4 bedroom 2.5 bath home that sits safely nestled amongst mature longleaf and loblolly pines.

For the owner looking for crystal clear spring fed waters that allow fishing, swimming, boating, and relaxation you need not look any further. There are an additional 4 lakes on the property making up 14 +/- acres of waterfront begging to be fished, kayaked, hunted, and enjoyed. Only 45 minutes from the beaches of South Walton and 30A, and 5 minutes from Defuniak Springs this property would make an ideal full time residence or potential development. Property has been approved for subdividing 1 acre lots.

If you dream of owning a property that you can hunt on and make money at the same time, the property currently holds a 20,000 per year tower lease that has a 5% escalator clause. In the upland areas, there are over 400 acres of young and mature loblolly and longleaf. For hunters, there is a plentiful amount of deer, turkey, and small game. 15 miles of road and trails give easy access for any type of outdoor recreation you want to pursue. They also provide a stable base to engage in timber harvest, for which this property is ready. The timber on the property can provide immediate income.

Amenities are too many to list, the property really has to be seen to be appreciated.
