Want to own your own private slice of North Florida history? This rustic 1950’s original log cabin and separate bonus living quarters are located right on the banks of the pristine and historic Aucilla River at Nutall Rise. Sitting on .34 of an acre, with private well and septic tank, this one-of-a-kind property features an original homestead structure (20’ x 27’) constructed on the property in 1945 and a 1950’s-era log cabin (20’ x 29’) moved onto the property in the 1970’s. Cash-only buyers can own this unique log cabin constructed with pine, cypress, cedar and maple throughout. Featuring a wide-open concept floor plan and original cast iron wood-burning heater, the log cabin has an attached breezeway leading to additional living quarters and bathroom. A large screened-in back porch features another wood-burning heater. You can relax on the front deck while overlooking the pristine beauty and dark, tannin flow of the Aucilla River, teeming with freshwater bream, catfish and bass. This outdoorsman’s hideaway is located just two miles from the historic Mandalay Landing public boat ramp, which allows for a short ride out to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico for some of the best flats fishing and offshore fishing in the world. A true hunter’s or fisherman’s paradise, this rare hidden gem is nestled in the middle of fishing and hunting heaven at Nutall Rise, where the Aucilla River re-emerges after flowing some distance underground. JR’s Aucilla River Store is just around the corner on Hwy. 98. This true nature lover’s paradise is located in the heart of the Big Bend of Florida that has drawn people here for generations due to its excellent saltwater and freshwater fishing, as well as abundant wildlife and hunting. This unique area of western Taylor County near the Jefferson County line offers the ultimate in eco-tourism attractions – fishing, hunting, scalloping, birding, boating, sailing, canoeing, hiking, artifact hunting, wildlife observation and nature photography. Wildlife abounds! You will regularly see hummingbirds, osprey, bald eagles, woodpeckers, swallow-tailed kites, blue herons, white pelicans, turkeys and storks. In the river, don’t be surprised to spot manatees, otters and porpoises. While in the woods, you will find raccoon, deer, wild hogs, foxes, coyotes, bobcats and even an occasional black bear.
