Welcome to “The Reid House”, a historic luxury waterfront residence. Built circa 1850 and scheduled for demolition in 1990, it was moved downriver by barge to its current, private location. Its historical integrity has been retained and the updates are impeccable.
Historic waterfront retreat sits on Florida's mighty St. Johns River. Great pride, coupled with exhaustive research, went into its meticulous restoration. The setting is over 2 acres, situated directly on the river with 192 feet of frontage, a private 260 foot canal, and a 120 foot L-shaped dock.

Own a Piece of History -- Own Your Piece of Paradise

Welcome to “The Reid House”, probably one of Florida's most interesting and significant historic homes. Owned and occupied by generations of noteworthy families, the dwelling was made of cypress beams that pre-date the Seminole War.

Built circa 1850 and scheduled for demolition in 1990, it was moved downriver by barge to its current, private location. Its historical integrity has been maintained and the updates are impeccable. Great pride and exhaustive research went into the meticulous restoration of this home. Every effort has been made to keep it in pristine condition with an eye to reclaiming its Historic Landmark status. The current location, Browns Landing, is rumored to have been an Indian trading post and now serves as a fitting location for this spectacular historic home.

Surrounded by orange groves and moss-laden trees, this lovingly renovated waterfront property is an oasis of delight for nature lovers, yachtsmen or serious fisherman with an appreciation of history and a taste for elegance. This estate can be either enjoyed as is or altered to suit your vision.

Make your dreams come true.

Make the Browns Landing estate "Your Piece of Paradise"!
