About 17516 Nw 278th Avenue

Rare opportunity to purchase the last remaining Goodwin Estate tract. Six parcels totaling nearly 70 acres. Parcel #18 includes the main residence of 2,672 sqft: 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, flex room currently used as a gym, laundry room with chute, finished porch, plus a finished underground cellar/bunker with power, phone connection, and air conditioning. Refurbished ½ mile paved driveway. The home is integrated with solar energy system with battery backup. New roof replaced in 2022. Parcel #19 features a pole barn (30' x 75') that includes an unfinished 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment, plus an enclosed barn shop, with power and plumbing. This peaceful location and sprawling property is full of blooming fruit trees, including peach, nectarine, banana, fig, Florida pear, persimmon, jujubes, and loquat, as well as hummingbird and butterfly gardens. A private creek runs along the northern edge of the property and empties into Santa Fe River. The extensive landscaping along the Flowing Creek and on parcel #19 features diverse trees, including magnolia, tulip poplar, red maple, native pecan, red cypress, crepe myrtle, red bud, long leaf pine, and numerous varieties of hardwoods. Perfect for animal lovers with agricultural interests. Plenty of animal sightings on property. All 6 parcels must be purchased together and are zoned for timber, including approx. 60 acres of harvestable timber — a potential value-added opportunity for the right buyer. Includes 2 water wells plus an extra irrigation well with manual backup. Ideal investment for a savvy buyer who can leverage the full potential of the estate by developing and selling 5 of the 6 parcels. LOCATION: All 6 property parcels have independent roadway access to NW 278TH Ave. Less than 5 minutes from I-75 and 25 minutes to Oaks Mall in Gainesville, FL. This land was studied by the University of Florida Natural History Museum for its archeological and historical relevance.
