VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY! Tallahassee’s Diamond in the Rough — Brightwater on Lake Bradford Tribes of North Florida Native Americans called it home hundreds of years ago, and very little has changed on this old Florida cypress lake, the largest body of water in the Cascades’ chain of lakes. The Lake Bradford chain meanders through the Apalachicola National Forest on the southwest side of Florida’s Capital City of Tallahassee. This 350-plus acre, sand-bottom lake ebbs and flows with fresh rainwater runoff from the national forest, and it is continually refreshing itself with the rain patterns of the region. Its overflow is directed through a series of additional lakes and eventually drains into the St. Marks River and the Gulf of Mexico. Lake Bradford is a private-access lake and is home to a few dozen lake homes, many of which come with their own docks and boathouses. Florida State University owns a large tract on the south shore, which is used as a recreational resource for the student population and the general public. Weekends will see students sailing, canoeing and paddleboarding — or just relaxing on its white-sand beach. You will also see a few watercraft circling the lake, but the lake is mostly empty on weekdays. Fishing on the lake is excellent with largemouth bass and brim aplenty. When the lake rises, it’s possible to access two additional lakes with a boat or kayak through a narrow channel that passes the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science. When passing, one might observe a Florida panther or black bear, whose protected habitats border the water. One can often observe a bald eagle circling the lake as it hunts for its next meal, or see Canada geese that annually migrate south and call Lake Bradford home for the winter. With a kayak or canoe, the adventurous spirit can pass through a culvert and then have access to the many lakes of the Cascades’ chain that is pure Florida wilderness. And all of these resources are available from Brightwaters’ boathouse and dock. Brightwaters is a unique, 4,300-square-foot Lake Bradford home that has not been on the market since 1984. A home on Lake Bradford seldom lands on the market because of the area’s beauty, privacy and strategic location in the Capital City. Here is a look at what’s nearby: + 25-minute cab ride to Tallahassee International Airport + 13-minute drive to downtown Tallahassee + 10-minute drive to Interstate-10, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart, Publix, Greenwise Market and FSU’s Doak Campbell Stadium + Adjacent to FSU’s recently renovated Jack Nicklaus Golf Course and Innovation Park, home to a research park and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, the world’s most powerful research magnet laboratory + 1 hour from the Gulf of Mexico’s white sand beaches Tallahassee will be seeing exponential growth in the decades ahead, yet Lake Bradford and its pristine ancient environment will be protected forever and remain a natural playground for the next owner of Brightwaters.
