Property Description

Auction Property. ONLINE AUCTION ENDS OCTOBER 18 AT 11 AM ET. Price is a suggested opening bid. PRICE DETERMINED AT AUCTION.rnrnBird Island is located in Lake Griffin and nestled within the renowned Harris Chain of Lakes, which is part of Florida’s largest and most navigable lake system. Lake Griffin spans approximately 9,500+/- acres and extends for over 7+/- miles with minimal development.rnrnThe property currently hosts a modest but well equipped 2BR/1BA home built in 1982+/- with 1,120+/- sf of living space. It features a modern kitchen with copper countertops, hardwood floors, tongue and groove ceiling, and a screened in viewing deck. The property is equipped with essential utilities, including electric, septic, and water. Power runs from the mainland and is maintained at the expense of the electric company. The power company is currently in the process of updating the complete infrastructure.rnrnBird Island is a short 1+/- mile boat ride to the mainland and Eagle’s Nest Marina. From Lake Griffin one can make their way to Silver Springs through the Ocklawaha River and the Moss Bluff Lock. Take a day trip to historic Mount Dora and grab a nice lunch along the way. The Harris Chain is part of the Ocklawaha River Basin draining northward through the St. John’s River to Jacksonville and ultimately the Atlantic Ocean. Lake Griffin is a haven for bass fishing enthusiasts and duck hunters will enjoy the nationally protected Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area which is located directly across the lake.rnrnThere are approximately 4+/- acres of cleared land with proposed approval for an additional, larger homesite not far from the existing cottage. The remaining acreage creates a natural privacy buffer. Bird Island is merely minutes to dining, shopping, and entertainment in Lady Lake, Leesburg and the retirement mecca of The Villages. A 50+/- mile drive places you in the heart of Orlando’s world class shopping and tourist attractions.rnrnMost islands face a fair amount of exposure during the hurricane season. Fortunately, Central Florida is far more protected from the dangerous and disastrous effects of tropical storms than its coastal counterparts. You will never have to worry about storm surge washing over Bird Island.rnrnAs the owners of the island say, “live in the middle of nowhere, right next to everything.” Bird Island is a rare chance to enjoy the ultimate privacy of your own secluded getaway while being close to all the urban conveniences of Central Florida.rnrnBid online Oct 11 – 18.
