Details: 20 ACRE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SITE. This property has paved streets/roads on 2 sides and is located directly across the highway from a successful residential subdivision that is almost built out and now in progress of developing commercial frontage. This is immediately across the highway from this listed property and should certainly have a positive effect on the value. This property is not in the City limits of Lake Wales but does adjoin City lmits. (Previous Citrus on South and Residential on West and North) This property was originally a citrus grove and has an existing 6 inch permitted well which could serve as irrigation for a subdivision? The property is extremely well drained with elevation appearing to range from about 187 to 174 ft. above sea level in the Northeast corner at the intersection of Buck Moore Rd. (County Road 17-B) and Sunset Dr. No Wetlands here! The survey indicates 641 Ft. frontage on 17-B and 1275 Ft. frontage on Sunset Drive. There is a 6 inch city water line on the North side of Sunset Drive (a County Road) and an 8 inch water line and hydrant along the East side of this property along 17-B. Any access to water and sewer utilities would require annexation into the City of Lake Wales. The City of Lake Wales is growing and development appears to be increasing in this area East of the City and North and South of Highway 60. Lake Wales has the advantage of good schools, medical facilities, The Arts, communications, motels (may need more!) and area attractions include historic Bok Tower, Legoland (closeby in Winter Haven), West Gate Resort, Spook Hill, Florida Fly Wheelers, sky diving at the Lake Wales airport, Kissimmee river for fishing as well as numerous State, City and County parks.
