Description: Situated on 93+/- acres in north Walton County, Florida, this property is an integral part of the stunning 3,535-acre Natural Bridge Creek Plantation. Its focal point is the 1/2 mile of frontage on crystal clear Natural Bridge Creek that at one point disappears underneath a limestone formation, only to reemerge and continue on its journey. It is here, too, that a coveted second magnitude spring helps sustain the water flow. The balance of the property consists of mixed pine and hardwoods that are suitable for recreational purposes or rural home sites.
Because of the unique attributes of this property, in 2009 Walton County attempted to purchase 19 acres (plus a 6-acre easement) surrounding the spring for preservation and public areas. Appraised at $690,000, the project's boundaries grew in scope as multiple stakeholders attempted to influence the acquisition. Eventually, the project ended due to a lack of funding despite the County's willingness to contribute a significant amount of preservation funds. With an improved economic outlook, it is anticipated that the State and other conservation organizations will have a renewed interest.
With 1/2 mile of frontage on County Road 181 in addition to Natural Bridge Road and Punch Bowl Road traversing the property, access is excellent. Moreover, the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast are only 50 miles away.
