Welcome to 0.23 acres in the community of Georgetown Cove (a.k.a. Paradise Lakes) in Georgetown, Florida, just steps from the north end of beautiful Lake George. Georgetown Cove features cozy and reasonably priced homes that make a perfect first or second home. The community dates back to 1983 and has continued to develop over the years as a destination for lake lovers and fishermen. A 39,000 acre conservation area, known as the Lake George Wildlife Management Area, adjoins the eastern border of the subdivision, offering camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing.
Members of the Georgetown Cove property owners association have access to the private 9 acre waterfront park, located directly on Lake George. Make use of the boat launch right in the park for easy access in and out of the lake. Enjoy sunsets and fishing from the dock on the water. The park also offers three short-term campsites, permanent BBQ grills on the waterfront for your family cookouts, and a covered picnic building with tables, where you can pass the time in the shade.
This property is very unique as it allows for limited RV use, which is not common on residential property in the state of Florida. RVs may be used for temporary visits (see zoning details for length of time) without needing a temporary use permit as long as the RV is self-contained and it's being used by the owners or friends and family of the owners (with permission). Plus if you plan to build on the property, the RV temporary use permit is good for 6 months.
Lake George is the second largest freshwater lake in Florida, covering 46,000 acres. There are a number of popular recreation spots on the lake including Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs. Silver Glen Springs is a first-magnitude spring and the main attraction of the Silver Glen Springs Recreation Area of Ocala National Forest. It lies at the east edge of the national forest. It is about 2 miles north of the entrance of Juniper Creek, and it is along the edge of Big Scrub.
You're also close to the St. Johns River where you can catch largemouth bass, crappie, bluegills, catfish and more. Not into fishing? No problem, take a scenic riverboat tour of the area instead or day trip to DeLeon Springs to visit Volusia Speedway Park or make your own pancakes at the SugarMill restaurant (housed in a historic replica mill building).
Centrally located, Georgetown is a close drive to the ocean with St. Augustine and Daytona Beach both less than 60 miles away. Experience the magic of the mouse with a trip to nearby Disney World and all of the Orlando area resorts. But best of all, just sit back, relax and enjoy your new life in Lake George.
