"Big Prairie Homestead" ... is an improved but vacant 20 acre parcel located on the high plain prairie of Eastern Charlotte Co. History flourishes on this prairie....this is the same prairies of the Conquistadors, renown Artist Frederick Remington, Ziba King, Bones Mizell, Chief Osceola and the treacherous native Calusa natives of Ponce de Leon's fame. This is a rare offering that includes improvements...that is...the land has been selectively cleared years ago for a home and pasture and now many oak trees remain giving the property an "old Florida appearance" which is the request of many land purchasers..."I want to own a property with the feel of Old Florida?" In a 1 square mile area there are about 10-12 homes offering quiet surroundings with a nice genteel neighborhood typical of a rural community. "Everyone helps each other when in need." This parcel previously housed a residence (manufactured home) which has been removed. A well of over 200 foot depth and a septic tank with septic field which previously supported a 3 bedroom-2 bath home remains on the property. Barns, pole barns, outside structures incidental to agriculture are permitted without a building permit as long as there is no electric or plumbing hookups which is an great amenity to and AG land. The well is in great condition and can pump 4,000 gallons for watering purposes on any day. Property is fenced and cross fenced with two street fronts...one of 330 feet along the southern border...the other of 1,320 feet along the eastern boundary. Entrance to the "homestead" is at the middle of the southern road front. The elevation puts this land an "X" rated flood zone property meaning the land is highly unlikely ever to be flooded. USGS shows an elevation here of between 58 to 60 feet above sea level.
