Lake City Florida real estate is some of the most sought-after in the country, particularly for golfers and those who prefer the climate of Florida without worry of coastal storm damage. As the seat of Columbia County, the city is steeped in Seminole history and recently celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2009.
From top-rated public and private schools, to the famed Southern Oaks Country Club Golf course within the city limits, and from its annual Olustee Battle Festival and Alligator Festival to its picturesque state parks, Lake City offers a charming lifestyle to its roughly 12,000 inhabitants.
Restaurant options abound, and appeal to a variety of palates, with American, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, and Barbecue among the many options. Plus, the subtropical climate promises few cold snaps and long growing and golfing seasons. Since the area in and around Lake City rests right in the I-75 Corridor in Florida’s northern center, smack dab between Tallahassee and Jacksonville, it’s fondly referred to as “The Gateway to Florida” – and carries a large percentage of both the commercial and tourist traffic in the state. This helps ensure a stable economy in the city and the Lake City Gateway Airport, is even a local center of business.
When it comes to luxury living, Lake City Florida real estate rivals many of its more famous rivals like Boca Raton or Naples. There are quite a few luxury apartment communities available for short-term or seasonal stays, including the highly rated Windsor community. For long-term residents, gated communities and golf communities also abound.
Typical luxury real estate offerings run in the quarter million to half million range. However, there are a few true gems in the Hills of Windsor Gated Community that offer luxury living that’s a cut above the rest. Take, for example, the completely restored Grand Estate at 234 South West Windsor Drive, selling with no reserve at Absolute Auction on November 14th. This stunning 11+-acre property includes a main house, and both a one and a two-bedroom guesthouse, plus an Olympic-sized lap pool and 15-seat movie theater. The intricate architectural details, custom finishes of French Versi travertine and antique walnut flooring, exotic granite, custom espresso cabinetry and Stainless Steel Viking, Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances make this a cut above other luxury Lake City Florida real estate livings. Plus, because it is being sold at auction, it presents a rare opportunity to own at your price.
