This unique 2.39 acre property is bordered on 3 sides by water. With 90+/- feet on the St. Johns River to the west, 522 feet +/- on navigable Sandy Branch Creek to the south and 300+ feet on Lake Kennedy, a man-made lake to the east, the opportunity exists to create two 1 acre +/- lots with access to the St. Johns River. In addition to a newer dock on the St. Johns River, a covered boat slip provides river-access via the deep-water creek. The existing home sits on a high bluff (no flooding) and while it is livable, is being sold as-is. The value is in the land with its canopy of towering centuries-old oak trees and surrounded by newer million dollar- plus homes. Located just north of I-295 in Mandarin, it is convenient to local eateries/shopping, downtown, Orange Park and N.A.S.The current 2,540 s.f. home was built in 1950 with the main entrance and front porch facing the river and a carport and two secondary entrances facing the road. While this offers a wonderful opportunity to sit on the "front" porch and enjoy the expansive view of the St. Johns River, the approach for guests arriving is less than impressive. The current owners have never occupied the home but it appears to be structurally sound. It has had few updates other than a new roof in 2005. The small kitchen and 3 small bathrooms are original to the house and would require major modifications to the floor plan in order to bring them up today's standards, however, the house does have the potential for renovation, if a buyer is attracted to the lifestyle and privacy such a property could offer rather than owning a house that is impressive architecturally. There are no HOA rules, so freedom to house boats and other outdoor toys with no complaints from neighbors. The kids will certainly enjoy the adventure of exploring the woods, fishing and boating from the various waterfront venues offered by this unique property. See Residential Listing #990906 for interior photos of the existing residence.
