More About This House
Beautiful Historic Florida: Ricamar
Gently rolling terrain with about 2,200 feet frontage on spring fed lake, perfect for swimming, skiing, and catching speckled perch and trophy bass, surrounded by old growth cypress, pine, palm, and bay trees. Upland hammocks planted in moss draped oaks. Pasture for horses, and miles of trails for walking or riding. All of this 25 minutes from Ormond Beach and I-95, and 40 minutes from most of the well visited attractions of the Daytona Beach area. An hour from historic Saint Augustine.
