Believed to be the perfect location for your retirement or secluded get away, this bluff front property on Point Peter Creek, has unobstructed views of Cumberland Island, GA., the Inter Coastal Waterway, Amelia Island, FL., and Fernandina Beach, FL. You can stand on this incredible piece of land and look directly out at the Atlantic Ocean and yet be protected from storms by a protective marsh barrier provided by Mother Nature also known as Cumberland Island. The protection from the sea is further enhanced by the extensive jetty system installed at the entrance to ensure that the nuclear subs that transit though this entry will never be blocked.
The bluff front land along Point Peter Creek, was once the site of a fort which was destroyed by a British force on January 13th, 1815. This site is now officially the last recorded military engagement location of the War of 1812 replacing New Orleans in the history books. An extensive archeological dig was conducted of the surrounding area and over 67,000 artifacts were recovered and donated to the Cumberland Island National Seashore Museum. Located on the west shore of Point Peter Creek, which is 200' wide at the property and over 13' deep at low tide, this site is a once in a life time find and is now ready for your home, dock and choice of bulkhead or sloped river bank frontage. Situated in the gated community of Cumberland Harbour with Tennis, Swim and Exercise Facilities as well as the new resident docks and fishing pier which are permitted and will start construction shortly. With 75' of bluff frontage, this property would be a prime location for an award winning home and has a nearby neighbor that was the Home & Garden TV Home of Dreams in 2004. There are 1,100 residential lots in Cumberland Harbour but only 90 of them are waterfront with the ability to have a dock permit and consistently deep water. This property comes with an approved dock permit from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources -- Coastal Resources Division. In that attached pictures below you will see Cumberland Island directly in front of the lot and looking south you will see Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island. The St Marys River and entry to the Atlantic Ocean is just south of Cumberland Island in the pictures below, between the southern most point of Cumberland Island and the Northern End of Fernandina Beach.
This property is offered by the owner as a private sale which includes .53 acres of uplands property with approximately 75' of river bluff frontage (No Marsh To Build a Bridge Across). The lot also includes utilities in place including water, sewer, high speed communications, power transformer and fire hydrant. Originally valued at $750,000 this property is now available for $365,000. This is one of the most unique parcels of buildable uplands bluff property available on the Georgia Coast with immediate access to both the Inter Coastal Water Way and Atlantic Ocean with unobstructed views of Cumberland Island, GA., Amelia Island, FL and the ocean. This is one of the lots the original developer set aside for him and his business partners so you know they are the best.
I will consider subordination of the property to permit a builder with the right protections to construct a home for a client and get payment for the lot when the home is closed. I have a builder ready to start if you have a motivated client. Not interested in trades of any kind. Permitted for a fixed dock house and floating dock.
