A property on a 51-acre island that was listed for nearly $3 million in February has undergone its second price drop and is now listed for $1.35 million.
The Bird Island property, located at 6001 Bird Island Drive in Lady Lake, incurred a dramatic listing price decrease this week as it was put up for auction online.
Originally listed for $2,999,000, the price was changed to $2,700,000 in June and again on Monday, Sept. 25. The final price of the property will be determined at auction.
The property is located on Lake Griffin, just a few miles east of The Villages, and comes with a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 1,120-square-foot home that was built in 1982.
The home features a modern kitchen with copper countertops, hardwood floors, and a screened-in viewing deck.
According to Tranzon Driggers, the real estate company hosting the auction, Bird Island comes equipped with septic, water, and power, which runs from the mainland and is maintained at the expense of the electric company.
The island is about a one-mile boat ride to Eagle’s Nest Marina, and has access to Silver Springs through the Ocklawaha River and the Moss Bluff Lock.
The property also features approximately four acres of cleared land with proposed approval for an additional, larger homesite not far from the existing cottage.
According to Tranzon, the auction will open for bidding at 9 a.m. on Oct. 11. Bids will be accepted until 11 a.m. on Oct. 18.
