“A Pond on the Prairie” is a 5 acre parcel that is a rare offering in east Charlotte Co. Why? Here are a few of the reasons why…this tract is for either a homesite or AG building (pole barn or metal barn), is a corner property with electric service on the west road front, has a 1/3 acre pond. a huge house or barn pad adjacent to the pond, zoned Agriculture, a liberal low density zoning and has a gated access on the south road front. (Currently the gate is in disrepair.) One exceptionally good reason this property is a rare offering is most rural properties in the area do not have electricity & obtaining electric service is prohibitive due to the tremendous cost of the pole lines construction which can be in the thousands of dollars. Tract is located in the Charlotte Harbor Highlands Subdivision and all parcels less than 10 acres are grandfathered and can be built on. Barn buildings or pole barns do not require a building permit (Florida state law), but if you build with electric service and/or plumbing, then permits are required. Access is via a good private marl road (easement) which is 6/10ths. mile south of SR74. There are no deed restrictions. The road is privately maintained by those who use the road or the owners on the road. Septic & well are required and the general elevation is around 50-60 feet above sea level. In this area you can have a garden, fruit bearing trees or even a larger garden for long term sustainability and most of all the area’s neighbors are all folks who love living here, get along with each other and would do most anything for their community of friends. New neighbors are discovering this area as a place to live away from the bustle of SW Florida. And, lastly many do not know the fact that history flourished here as these are the same prairies of the Conquistadores, the artist Frederick Remington, cattleman Bones Mizell, & the treacherous Calusa Tribe of Ponce de Leon fame. The daytime skies offer interesting sights as the picturesque clouds grow and develop in the afternoon and deliver boundless visual entertainment. To add to natural character of the area, the sunrises-sunsets are for the artist to paint…the nighttime view of the stars & the universe are undisturbed as there are no city lights nearby and summer showers roll across the horizon blending in with the distant pine and prairie lands. This is in a vast 2 sq. mile area of scattered small farms, ranchettes & undeveloped parcels owned by mostly out of state property owners. The only limitations are prescribed by the AG zoning which permits all uses under the description including low density residential (1 home per parcel), conservation, agriculture, recreation and other uses consistent therewith. It is the purpose of the agricultural districts to provide areas for the establishment and/or continuation of agricultural operations with residential uses being permitted only at very low densities and to accommodate those individuals who understand and desire to live in an agricultural environment.
