Update for the more interested buyer. This is a very unique property and may be unmatched in Volusia Co. or even all of Central Florida.
Sunset Island is an approximately 1 acre, high and dry site in the heart of the Spruce Creek Preserve and surrounded by Strickland Bay and lands owned by the State of Florida. It is zoned entirely as B-7 Commercial Marina and has many potential uses ( A B-7 zoning copy may be supplied on request ) but basically any water oriented project, i.e. Marina, Restaurant, Hotel, Fishing Lodge, B&B, water craft Rentals, etc.
It has a very interesting history and a Canary Island Palm ( Now deceased) that has a concrete pillar of sorts buried right in the middle. Also, very old coins and odd tree growths have been found there. It has 2 residential units; a 2/2 home and a 1/1 newly re-built owner's apartment as well as a commercial building, an 'out building' storage with laundry facility, and a detached garage.
There are two relatively new, large septic systems with new drain fields and a commercial, Port Orange city water feed. You also have your own turn lane off US1 from the North and a crossover in front of the drive to the other lanes.
It is located at the head waters of beautiful Spruce Creek with access to Turnbull Bay and on the Florida Trail, a Canoe/Kayak trail developed by the state. It is also on the designated route of the FDOT 'St. Johns River to Sea' (SJR2C) Loop Trail that is designed to allow foot and bicycle access to a safe and complete loop along the St. Johns River to New Smyrna, Port Orange, Daytona and back to DeLand and the river.
You do have access also to the Intra-coastal Waterway (ICW) and the ocean but currently it is limited to vessels able to cross under a low bridge. Mostly canoes and kayaks or low console flats boats but there has been discussion about raising a section of the bridges.
Full disclosure- I own the property along with my wife and can discuss why I bought it and it's history with any interested buyer. Also, the current price is only good for a sale closed prior to the end of the year...for tax purposes. I do intend to raise it back to the $1.4 M if unsold by then but am open to holding a mortgage with a large down-payment and qualified buyer.*
