Property description

Sitting atop an artist studio, the second floor is a private guest room with a private entrance and a porch with a view of the woods and fields. The room has a queen bed, bathroom with a shower, microwave, coffee maker and a mini fridge. An outdoor grill can be made available.

The apartment is one of many buildings on an 80 acre private residence. Guests have access to over 2 miles of walking trails. A tributary of the Suwannee River (Robinson Branch) running thru its middle with a bridge to another part of the property.

Foxes, hawks, deer and nesting eagles are your neighbors. Deer ofter ramble around the fields and are reminders that you are in the country.

We offer sattelite tv service but no internet. Remember, you want that country living experience.

The house is 6 miles from the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park... ideal for those wanting to experience the Folk Festival.

Its very private and very much in the country. Peace and quiet are the main attractions. No traffic noise here as we are 1/2 mile down a dirt road. The moon and the stars are our best neighbors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Randy and Melissa love the great outdoors. Both are avid woodworkers. Randy is currently working on his second timber frame building, while his wife turns the leftover wood into bowls. Randy built all the buildings on this property with an eye towards the Florida Cracker style.

Why the Owner Chose White Springs, FL, USA:
Why not? Its beautiful! 80 acres to meander in private. We can bird watch, catch foxes on our game camera and keep an eye on Monroe the gator who has taken up residence in our pond. A leisurely walk before breakfast is a must.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Privacy! Quiet! Peaceful! Getting away from it all is its most precious feature.
