Voted best/darkest site in all of Chiefland Astronomy Village (CAV). Enjoy panoramic views of 20 acres , free of visible neighbors, yet you can walk over and hobnob with fellow Astro-wizards just 1/4 mile away. Don’t wait - this is the BEST location at CAV for privacy, beauty, and peaceful living.

This is an amazing 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home on 10 open acres, mostly pasture with a few nicely scattered trees. Fabulous views of 20 acres of nature - no homes can be seen due to this unique location. Set back off the paved county road on it’s own private laneway, the deer regularly walk by, usually four or more!

Top quality throughout! The manufactured home looks and feels like a custom site built house. All walls are full 2x6 and all sheetrock is 1/2 inch, taped and textured. Super-insulated, low A/C and heat bills. The crown molding and cathedral ceilings adds a feeling of custom built elegance. This home has been well taken care of and shows pride of ownership.

This home is bright and airy with an open floor plan. Huge primary bedroom and bathroom suite. Fabulous views of the surrounding 20 acres.

Featuring a lovely kitchen with tons of cabinet and countertop space, center island, breakfast bar, electric cooktop, wall oven and microwave.

The large master suite has a walk-in closet. Elegant French doors lead from primary bedroom to the roomy bath suite with dual sinks, and plenty of countertop. Next to the French doors is a Fireplace situated by the jetted tub. Relax in the tub with bubbles while enjoying the fireplace!! The Bathroom suite also features walk-in glass shower.

Outside there are two open decks: allowing breakfast at sunrise on the front deck or dinner by sunset views on the back deck.

There is a large detached 20 x 40 insulated workshop with painted concrete floor. Shop has a car door plus a standard man door. Inquire on tools and John Deer tractor with bushhog mower, which may optionally be sold with property.

There is a utility building set up as an astronomical observatory for a telescope. And an enormous 24 foot diameter Dome Observatory, just waiting for an Astronomer’s dream scope!
There is another raised 12 x 20 Observatory with 7x7 roll off building.

This property would also make a great hobby horse farm, no deed restrictions. About 45 minutes to either Gainesville or Ocala horse country.

Located just 15 minutes from Manatee Springs and the famous Suwannee River! And 30 minutes to the Gulf of Mexico at famous Cedar Key! You'll be just a short 15 minute drive into small town north of property.
