Where is this amazing estate? Where is St. George Island?

St. George Island, Florida is a 22-mile island escape into “Old Florida” surrounded by Apalachicola Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.  When asked the question “What is different from modern day Florida?” The quick answer is “Everything”.

This area is immensely quieter and kinder than other areas of the Florida Gulf Coast. Just an eight hour drive or a 1.5 hour flight from the Nashville area makes it easily accessible. Resplendent with complex coastal habitats, nesting sea turtles, bald eagles and infinite species of fresh and saltwater sea life. Shimmering night skies are devoid of artificial light intrusion.  Pet-friendly beaches and miles of coastal bicycle path make this a family friendly island. Density controls that prohibit high-rise structures have preserved the natural look of the area.  A 3300’ paved airstrip on the island or three 5000’ runways in nearby Apalachicola allow discriminating privacy seekers to disappear into a world free of fanfare and worldly distraction.  This is an unspoiled island with a laid-back attitude.

Chat Qui Peche is offered at $2,350,000.00 and is shown by private appointment. If you’d like more information on this home or any properties on St. George Island, contact Pandora Schlitt with the Naumann Group Real Estate, Inc, 850-653-6690.
