Come experience a different part of Florida from the very large deck of this great river house. Bring your boat, fishing poles, the kids, and grandma. You will enjoy the large dock, complete with covered boat house, running water, fish cleaning station, lights, and floating dock perfectly suited for floats and swimming. This house has an open floor plan with split bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms open to the covered deck and have views of the river. The deck and dock are great spots for watching the boats go by. The river is 310 miles long and occasionally will host smaller cruise ships bringing their passengers to tour the scenic and historic St Johns River. This was a popular destination during the Gilded Age. The vacation this home makes possible should not be considered 'luxurious' but instead enjoyed as a return to nature.
This home is clean and spacious with fantastic views and is located very close to the boat ramp, grocery and drug stores and restaurants. You will feel very secluded but can still walk to the market. Wild turkeys, alligators, and fish are very common. Manatees, otters and other wildlife are often seen in and around the river. We have provided 2 kayaks and paddles. You will find an assortment of life and ski vest as well as several floats for your enjoyment. You will need to bring most other fishing and boating items with you.
We have a large dining room table in the 'River Room' which can easily seat 8, with views through the 5 sliding glass doors. Located off the kitchen is a breakfast table that can seat 6.
Palatka is known as the' Bass Capital of the World'. The fishing is great and shrimping is possible in August and September.
This home has been our family retreat for over 15 years. We have decided to share our home with others starting in late May 2011. It is located only 30 miles from St. Augustine and the St. Johns County beaches. We hope you enjoy your stay in our River House.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: My wife and I have lived in St. Augustine since 1981. We have always enjoyed traveling, and have made many friends along the way. Our two children are now off to school, which leaves us more time to enjoy our favorite activities.

                      Why the Owner Chose Palatka:
                      We bought this property because we love the river. It was close to everything but it is very private.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We bought this river home in 1996 when our kids were very young and spent many weekends and a large portion of the summers and holidays here. This house is so perfect for casual entertaining.
