Property Description

Rare opportunity to own a piece of history! This gorgeous parcel of land is bordered by historic Natural Bridge Creek. The creek has crystal clear water that runs over and under natural limestone formations in the area. The property features a large pond and a spring creek that has cut a 10 foot deep path into the limestone rock which is a rare site for Florida. There are also two pools that bubble up from underwater Caverns leading into a subterranean river. As if the natural beauty of this property weren't enough, it also has a very interesting history! It is here in 1818 that then General Andrew Jackson led his troops from the South moving North over a portion of land that his mapping topographer, Capt. Hugh Young described as natural Bridge. This was the main thorough fare as well for the Pensacola/Saint Augustine Road which was the primary method of travel from east to west. The natural bridge area has been identified through the Florida Forever project as a property the state would like to preserve through ownership, please see the attached document for more information on this. For added convenience the owner has built a two bedroom bungalow on the property that is complete with a full kitchen and bathroom. This would make a great place to live while you build your dream home, or perhaps a wonderful family retreat for weekend getaway. Call today for your private tour before this "natural beauty" is gone!
