Property Description

Super-insulated, custom built, hurricane-resistant home with two bedrooms and two baths. A second living area could be a 3rd bedroom. This house has many amenities of a larger home, including lots of storage space with a 15 ft. long walk-in closet in the master bedroom and two attic spaces. It has a large kitchen with pantry, Jacuzzi tub, and a wood-burning fireplace. It’s about 1600 sq. ft. with a separate garage. This is a SIP home (structurally insulated panels) with 4 inches of foam in the walls and 6 inches in the ceiling. It is so insulated that the central heating is not used in the winter. It’s built on 2.3 acres (1 acre fenced), backing up to a creek, connected with the Santa Fe River with river access down the road. It has vaulted ceilings and tile throughout. Built with dogs in mind, it has a doggy door out of the laundry room with a doggy porch outside. There is a large 33 ft. diameter above-ground pool with a NASA filter in the back yard, requiring little maintenance or chlorine. The land is above the 500 year flood plain. Just 20 minutes north of Gainesville (closer to downtown than High Springs) off Hwy 121 (34th St. in Gainesville) with no traffic lights all the way to town. Due to their superior strength (steel beams) and insulation, SIP homes cost considerably more than stick homes. To build this home today would cost $200/sq.ft. or $320,000. I’m only asking $197,000, which includes $50,000 in land
