Property description

This professionally decorated home is centrally located between Orlando, Daytona Beach, and St. Augustine. Lake House Blue is at the end of a dock that stretches over 250 feet from the land for the ultimate in privacy. This beautiful home has upscale amenities inside (granite & stainless steel) with outdoor decks all around the house. There are two screened porches with rocking chairs, and one hammock. Bring your boat, or fish and crab on every side of the house. Relax while watching wildlife like Ospreys, Herons, Anhingas and the occasional Bald Eagle. ....GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.....YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID....

Fresh water Fishing: Fishing is good almost all year around. This lake made it's reputation on large mouth Bass, with tournaments coming out of Palatka on the St. Johns River.

A FAVORITE HONEYMOON HOUSE : Our past honeymooners say you can't beat this place for PRIVACY and SOLITUDE...

Daytona 500 one hour away: Don't miss the greatest Nascar event of the year. Not very far away, and the perfect place to get away from the crowds and relax when it is over.

Golf: The Live Oak golf course is a local venue, and fancy it's not. But the locals like the idea of having their own private setting. There is also a municipal course in Palatka that is only about 30 miles away. Now, if you are a serious golfer there is St. Augustine, Daytona and Orlando that can fill any dream you might have.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1978

About: Our family has used this lake house as our get away from it all escape from reality. We have been pressured for many years to rent this property so everyone can get to enjoy one of Florida's most hidden and unusual secrets. Henry David Thoreau said ' A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive features' A lake with a house in the middle of it is nature as it's best. We are very sorry we can't share our Lake House Blue with Mr. Thoreau, but we are sure he would love it....

Why Crescent City:
We bought this lake house because we wanted to get back to the old Florida of days gone by. This area has changed very little compare to other parts of Florida. Just 25 miles North in Palatka was as far south people came around the turn of the 20th century. The great people of that era names like President Grant, Mrs. Lincoln, wanted to see the wild Florida and all it's natural wonders. Palatka had as many 100 Paddle Wheel boats tied up at the city docks. Years later Babe Ruth came a couple of years and taught a base ball school. Highway 17 is the original highway to Florida as well as US1 on the East coast. These are the things that I saw when my parents brought me thru this area in the 1950's. It made a lasting impression on me and I get to enjoy this area today just like I was a kid again...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a one of a kind home with class, modern features, and a view from every window and door. Wildlife is all around and likes to show off for our guest. Bald Eagles,Osprey's, Ducks,Blue Heron's,White Egret's, even an occasional Manatee. This is just the beginning because every month has a different supply of nature's best. Come experience the wonders of nature at it best....
