This little grove has great potential for residential development. The owners are moving out of state and are motivated to sell. They have been through the Level 1 review process for division of the land and have a response that there is a potential for 16 building lots. This was just an initial start and an owner would have to go through the several other review processes to finish the platting process and sell lots but the fact that it is currently planted to citrus trees (Hamlin and about 35 Navel trees), the grove is leased and this more than covers the real estate taxes. There is also the potential for a new owner to manage the grove themselves and derive the income from the citrus which is picking about 150 boxes to the acre.
