If you LOVE living a waterfront lifestyle, this is a MUST SEE and its the BEST VALUE on the St. Johns River! Fondly called the Reid House, this circa 1850 historic waterfront home has been owned by generations of noteworthy families and occupies an important place in history. While the home was built in 1850, it is in perfectly wonderful condition with a newer foundation, a new roof in Dec. 2014 (architectural shingles), beautiful Heart of Pine floors, custom paint, and hurricane impact windows with a transferable life time warranty. The floor plan allows flexibility to accommodate your lifestyle whether you need 3 bedrooms or 5 bedrooms! A screened heated pool with Jacuzzi, guest house and extra-large air conditioned garage are just a few of the additional features of this residence. Sited on 2.23 acres on the mighty St. Johns River in Palatka, Florida, there are river views from almost every room and this part of the river is bordered by a gorgeous lush preserve so it's always peaceful and serene. Aged oaks and native palms surround the home and can be seen from the home in every direction. The front of the residence, with its welcoming oversized porch, overlooks the river, affording breathtaking sunsets. The fishing here is so great that this is the location for several annual fishing tournaments including the annual Bass Fishing Tournament. This home has been lovingly cared for and a must see if you are searching for the perfect primary or second home. Fresh air, peace and quiet tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet a short drive 5 to 15 minutes to all the usual local conveniences plus easy access to Jacksonville, Gainesville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast.
