Going to the Gator football games this season? This Santa Fe River front home is the perfect place to spend your weekend. This home has two bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath, an open concept living area, 1200sq ft that has been newly renovated with new flooring, paint, furniture, linens and a chlorination system. The large deck offers beautiful views of the river, a picnic table and a family sized grill. The back yard features a tree shaded dock with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Home is conveniently located just a short 30 minute drive to Gainesville.
The house is furnished, including all the necessary appliances, a 40" HD T.V. with Amazon FireStick, WiFi and a DVD player in the living area. The Amazon FireStick allows you access HBO, Sirius Xm, and Amazon Prime video for free movies and shows as well as your Netflix account if you have one. There is also a small T.V./DVD combo in one bedroom. Television channels are local over the air HD.
There are two kayaks and tubes available for use and stairs on the dock for easy river access. The river varies in color from clear to tea colored and is shallow enough to wade into. There are many convenient access points to the river for tubing or kayaking and ending up right back at the house. There is a public boat ramp a short walk from the property, and plenty of room to park an average sized boat under the house.
Fort White is 4 miles away, and provides basic amenities such as grocery shopping, gas stations, and places to eat. High Springs is around 10 miles away and has a scenic downtown area with diners, antique and specialty shops, ice cream parlors, and a movie theatre. Gainesville is a 30 mile drive, perfect for a day trip. There are several springs and parks in the immediate area, including Blue Springs and Ichetucknee State Park. If tubing is your thing, their is a 45 minute tube trip straight from the dock to a small park nearby or a several hour trip if you let in at Rum Island, which leads you right back to the house.
The average winter temperature is in the mid to upper sixties, with a typical day being warm and sunny. The water temperature is 74 degrees year-round, perfect for swimming on relaxing summer days. The house includes a new air conditioning system that can be independently controlled in each bedroom and the living area by wireless remote to suit each occupants' individual needs.
Please note: Because we are located on a river we only have access to well water. A chlorination system has been installed to produce clean and clear water which is perfectly fine to shower, bathe, wash dishes and clothing in but not necessarily the best for drinking. For this reason we include gallons of water for drinking and cooking. The homeowner lives right around the corner and will be available by phone if there are any questions or concerns. Pets are allowed for a fee.
