This Property Has SOLD ! ! !
SOLD! For those of you pursuing an affordable lifestyle in the warmer regions of the country then this property has reached out and found you. Wedged between Hawthorne and Interlachen near Palatka, the Putnam county seat on the St. Johns river, this property is centrally located in what used to be one of the most popular tourist destinations of Florida. It is just off of SR 20 that connects Gainesville with Palatka.
Today though, with the freeway system and international airports, the major tourist activity has moved further south but that legacy still remains and is an important part of the current economy. In recent years, the Putnam County government has adopted policies focused on facilitating Ecotourism in the region. Nature trails are being expanded and kayaking waterways have been improved and mapped.
Portions of the Florida Trail also runs through the area and connect local hiking trails to other trail systems in parks throughout the region. There are also around 400 bodies of water within a 10-mile radius of the property providing plenty of opportunities for water activities including scuba diving.
The U.S. Census Bureau 2005 population estimate for the county was 73,568. The county is centrally located between Jacksonville, Gainesville, St. Augustine, and Daytona Beach.
This is an amazing investment in a central florida neighborhood, Cooper Lake Manor. As you can see, this is a beautiful area of Florida. There are lakes everywhere. Lots of open space. Room to spread out and enjoy nature but close enough to world class cities like Orlando and Gainesville and all the amenities thay have to offer. And Palatka is only about 30 minutes from Palm Coast and other Atlantic ocean beaches.
Like so many subdivisions in Florida, Cooper Lake Manor was layed out in the 70’s and subsequently abandoned by its developer after all the lots were sold to out-of-state hopefuls. Well fast forward to today, with land prices at all time lows following the recession and new developers are sensing opportunity with these developments where all the entitlement work with the land has already been done.
Now, we are not currently aware of any such plans for Cooper Lake Manor but the trend is real across the US and is only one opportunity that may benefit this area. Another is an upsurge of activity in the manufacturing arena with Georgia-Pacific becoming a major employer in the area. And lets’ not forget tourism, or Ecotourism as the county is calling it. All positives for an area beginning to re-invent itself. Can’t you just see it? Become a part of the future now!
