Perfect for those who love the peace of nature, but very close to town.
This modern studio apartment is located in a country setting on two fenced acres, close to town and UF. Less than two miles on a country road to Payne's Prairie and Hawthorne & La Chua Trails, where visitors can see alligators, bison, free roaming horses, sandhill cranes and countless birds in a wild and expansive setting. Sweetwater Preserve and Sweetwater Wetlands Park are just up the road, offering breathtaking views of wildlife and our gorgeous natural world. Biking and hiking trails are numerous and amazing here in Gainesville, including Devil's Millhopper Geological Park and countless natural springs for swimming, tubing, canoeing and kayaking. We are also less than a 90 minute drive to both the Atlantic coastal beaches and Gulf of Mexico sites, including the historic St. Augustine and Cedar Key. Gainesville is also a university town, boasting two colleges, and offers a wonderful variety of restaurants, art galleries, the Harn Museum, The Florida Museum of Natural History, including the Butterfly Museum (where guests interact with live butterflies), and live theatre (The Hippodrome Theatre, The Phillips Center for Performing Arts, & The Gainesville Community Play House). Too many attractions to name here!

The apartment has a separate keyed entrance, and an independent heating/cooling unit for personal comfort. In addition to a large private deck, guests also have access to a secluded screen house located in the back acre of the property overlooking the small lake. Here you can enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine and the night sounds of owls and tree frogs. Pure peace!

I am an acupuncturist and herbalist with a private practice here in Florida. I live in the house attached to the apartment, but you will probably not see me very much, unless I am doing yard work! However, I am always available if you have questions or need directions or suggestions. I have lived here in Gainesville for well over 30 years and know the area well. I share my portion of the house with a very goofy, and extremely friendly dog, and two (typically aloof) cats. If you spend any time on your deck, you may see them in the back yard from time to time. Otherwise, I think you'll find that you enjoy a considerable amount of privacy, peace and quiet. I am here when you have a need or question, but otherwise will respect your space. - I am a young 65, active, working in my private practice, hiking every day (on the Hawthorne Trail, which I highly recommend), and spending time with friends. This is a very unusual property which is quite close to town, but offers the peaceful and natural world centered experience of the country. I hope you appreciate the area as much as I do.
