Heavily Forested 0.23-Acre Lot For Sale in Highlands County, FL
Highlands County was established in 1921 and has one of the oldest populations in America. This county covers a little over 1100 square miles, 89 of which are water. It is home to the Lake Wales Ridge National Wildlife Refuge and features many community parks, playgrounds, nature centers, rivers, lakes, and outdoor recreational areas. Just 18 minutes from the popular fishing and watersports destination, Lake June in Winter, you will find this 0.23-acre lot.
About The Lot
The lot is covered in native trees and brush, along with fallen trees and dense foliage. A dirt road runs in front of the lot and right up to the property line. The land is relatively flat, and there is little change in elevation throughout the property. There are a handful of residential properties within a five-mile radius, but the lot is mostly private and secluded. The 0.23-acre lot is heavily forested and would need significant clearing before building. The location puts you away from major roads and traffic, but close to everyday amenities.
Highlands County Natural Beauty
This lot is tucked back in a residential area, just 3 minutes from the Lake June-in-Winter Scrub State Park. This is an excellent place for walking the trails, exploring, fishing, and nature photography. Locals who love to fish head out to Lake June-In-Winter, Lake Clay or Lake Huntly that are less than 30 minutes away. This lot is a little over an hour from Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. There are public parks, campgrounds, and playgrounds surrounding the park, and you can bike, hike and picnic in Highland Hammock State Park. This central Florida community is a little over an hour to beaches and surrounded by lakes, rivers, and public open spaces.
Comforts and Conveniences
Because this lot is so close to many local lakes, it is easy to find impressive waterfront dining restaurants in the area. This lot is just minutes from local eateries such as Dock 633 and Jackson’s Lakefront eatery. There are quite a few grocery stores and health food stores within 15 minutes of the property, along with banks, medical offices, churches and schools, gas stations, and health and beauty supply stores. There are a handful of auto repair shops and locally owned businesses near Lake June in winter, but big box stores like Target are about an hour away. From this tucked away lot, you are just under two hours from Disney, and three hours to the vibrant city of Miami. Highland County is not known for its active Community event calendar; however, there are events throughout the year designed to bring locals together.
There are many reasons to buy property in Florida, and this 0.23-acre lot in Highland County gets you away from the crowds and traffic of the theme parks, but allows you to be surrounded by some of Florida’s natural beauty.
