Suwannee River Oaks

One Mile of Frontage on the Suwannee River with Beautiful Sandy Beaches, 316 Acres, Very Private

Beautiful Park-Like Upland Palm and Hardwood Hammocks, Airstrip, Large Lake, Camp House, Immense Wildlife and Privacy

Close to scenic Fanning Springs on the lower Suwannee River where few privately held tracts still remain. Spring capital of the world. Perfect Conservation Easement Property. Predevelopment work complete. Not yet placed under easement.


This property is all about its beautiful and naturally park-like setting on one of the most beautiful sections of the Lower Suwannee River. It is one of the last remaining natural tracts not yet a state park and one of the best examples of what this part of Florida once looked like. We love the cabbage palms and enormous live oaks all lining the beautiful hard sand river. We could get very excited about building a family cabin at the site the landowners have prepared. The property not only has appeal in the cooler months, but that portion of the river has excellent boating and skiing. There is a 3,300 foot landing strip. It would be hard to imagine a better asset to pass down to the next generation. Memories can be made here with family and, at the same time, this property becomes more rare and unique every day. We believe this property is also a very good Social Storm (tm) property. We are having it scored now. It's a great place to simply lock the gate and let the rest of the world's problems go by.

Nearby, approximately four acres of the offering is just up the road at the county road, and has a three bedroom doublewide mobile home and six-car garage. It is just up the road from Hart Springs Park, campground, and boat ramp. This would be a great caretaker's house.

The location is ideal. It just north of the quaint town of Fanning Springs in north Florida. It's less than an hour to the Gulf of Mexico, apx 100 miles to Jacksonville, 40 miles to Gainesville, and about five hours from Atlanta. Chiefland is just 15 miles away with many more restaurants and all the stores one would need. There are state parks and federal refuges all up and down this portion of the river.


Broker Comment:

“We are proud to introduce one of the most outstanding properties on the Suwannee River. This property has long been cherished by its current owner and it has been a difficult, heartfelt decision to place it on the market. Anyone who has had the chance to visit the untouched river hammocks of the lower Suwannee River knows that this is some of the most beautiful and game-rich places in Florida. There is nowhere else like it. The cabbage palms and enormous timber on this property are invigorating. It is a bow-hunting and turkey paradise. This is one of our favorite riverfront places and that is saying a lot. We are very thankful that natural places like this still exist...and still exist to be privately owned. Being a part of properties like this is the best part of our job. We are truly blessed as will be the next steward of this great place."
