“This is a special place. It has had a succession of great landowners all of which have taken very good care of the land”. Jon Kohler
Behind the property gate, off a gorgeous canopy road in a classic rural neighborhood, you will find a traditional Southern oak lined alley. In fact, everywhere one looks are signature trees of all types. True to its roots, the property, which was once operated as a flourishing nursery, is home to abundant fruit-bearing plants and trees such as grapefruit, fig, blueberry, grape vine, and more. After the nursery closed its operation, the new landowner got to work establishing the property as a working tree farm. Now nearly 42 +/- acres of planted timber span the property. The southern yellow pine has exceptional genetics and is nearing merchantable age and can be thinned or the pine straw can continue to be raked.
Tucked in the middle of the property is a well-maintained 1.6 +/- acre lake stocked with large bass and bream and is representative of a classic North Florida water feature. Several of the old nursery wells are available to ensure adequate water levels even in times of draught.
The property is almost all fertile soils with two creek drains containing gorgeous park-like hardwoods. The acreage on the southeast portion of the land, just past sweeping stands of timber, touts ideal habitat for the deer or turkey hunting enthusiast with 8 +/- acres of hardwood forests, great bedding grounds, and creek bottom.
If one should seek added recreation (although there is plenty to be found onsite), one would need to look no further. Ox Lake Tree Farm is less than two miles to Florida’s newest acquisition, Plank Road State Forest, and from there, 144,000 acres of contiguous state and federal lands lead straight to the Gulf of Mexico. The trails, outdoor recreation, and freedom to enjoy the great outdoors here is limitless at the neighboring spring-fed and crystal clear Wacissa River, Saint Marks River Preserve State Park, L. Kirk Edwards State Wildlife and Environmental Area and more.
This fenced, private land also makes for a great Social Storm property, sought out not only for recreation and enjoyment, but also as a place for protection and wealth preservation. If tomorrow is a better day, properties like Ox Lake Tree Farm will continue to increase in value, if tomorrow is a worse day, its value will also continue to go up with demand.
Overlooking the lake sits a quaint 1,742 +/- square foot one bed/one bath stilt house with screened in porches for scenic viewing. Originally built more for a respite than a home, it has recently received new flooring in the living room quarters and other renovations. Renovations to the kitchen/bathroom would further compliment the great progress started here.
In addition to the home, a three-room/one bath office sits just off the carport. This space could easily be converted into additional sleeping quarters. There is also a large 30’x60’ equipment barn and bonus storage shed onsite.
Ox Lake Tree Farm is located just 24 minutes to the State Capitol of Florida. Local downtown Monticello has great dining at the Brick House Eatery, Rev Cafe, and more. This great town aptly caters to grocery, pharmacy, and other needs, while still maintaining its idyllic small-town charm.
Whether looking for a place to recreate or to live in the country with a quick commute, for a property of this size, in this location, at this price, this is one of the best family investments one can make.
