KEATON BEACH, FL, 32348 $1,800,000
This is an absolutely beautiful and unique Gulf front property located in Taylor County in the Big Bend Area of North Florida, approximately three miles south of Keaton Beach and fourteen miles north of the coastal/river community of Steinhatchee. The parcel is comprised of 25 acres with 14+/- acres of buildable uplands. The property is surrounded on three sides by state-owned lands, and it fronts Fish Creek Highway at the juncture of CR-361 (known as The Loop) which runs from US-19 just south of Perry and follows the coastline along Taylor County’s beaches through Steinhatchee along the Steinhatchee River, and looping back to US-19 north of Cross City. This gorgeous coastal property is cleared and has a ground covering of Bahia grass with scattered pine, water oak, cedar, and sabal palm trees. Just north of the property are the coastal communities of Keaton Beach, Dekle Beach, Ezell Beach, Cedar Island, Dark Island and Bird Island. At Keaton Beach two public boat ramps are available with ample parking for vehicles and boat trailers. The county also recently acquired an additional 43 acres adjacent to the existing ramps for a new proposed county park. Steinhatchee also boasts adequate boat ramps, boat lifts and boat storage for large vessels. A smaller public ramp is located at Dark Island for shallow draft vessels with limited parking. Taylor County is well known for its vast fishing and scalloping opportunities. This property would be a fantastic development site for condominiums, townhomes, single-family homes, a hotel, restaurant or upscale RV resort. The maximum density approved for this parcel is 140 units. A small creek at the edge of the property could provide a great launching area for kayaks and canoes. There is also a boat ramp at the Gulf’s edge for small boat launching. Great fishing can be found right at the water’s edge, and a fishing pier could be built to provide even better fishing opportunities. An elevated 4BR/2BA 3,128 sq. ft. home built in 1994/95 is located on the property, which could be remodeled for use as office space, a restaurant or clubhouse, etc. The panoramic views of the Gulf and its gorgeous sunsets are bound to attract customers from far and wide. The home includes a five-ton AC/heating system, a 360-degree wraparound deck, and is pre-framed for a 4x4 elevator. The ground floor currently serves as a 3-car garage, storage area and workshop. As is currently utilized, this property is an aabsolutely awesome private residential property. And it would also make a unique corporate retreat affording complete privacy, tranquility, fishing, water sports and the most breath-taking sunsets imaginable. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
