Posted November 8, 2012

We are selling one of the last beautiful building lots left in the Alachua, Florida area. This lot is rectangular, measuring 100 x 138 ft. [Total = 13,800 sq. ft. (1,280 sq. m.) or 1/3 acre]; it is also vastu and faces the east. It sits at the end of a paved cul-de-sac (which is great for kids!) and also has sidewalks. The lot has forest views at the rear and side with seven large, beautiful shade trees limiting the heat effect of the late afternoon sun. There are several nice spots for a small, medium, or moderately large sized garden on the left or southern side.

Lot in Alachua

This lot sits on the highest elevation in Alachua County!! It will NEVER flood! This means you can build a basement if you like to can and store your goods and veggies or just have a cooler area of the house without having to turn up the AC. Many of the homes in this neighborhood have basements, one of the only locations in the entire state of Florida that can accommodate a basement without any water level issues. You could easily install an in ground pool. Also there are no pesky home owner association fees. Water is supplied and maintained by the county in the form of a community well at a cost of approx.. $26-35/mo., Depending on usage(less than 1/2 the cost of water in Alachua city). Electricity is supplied by the multi-county Clay Electric Co-op; so costs are lower than in any other towns such as Alachua city or High Springs or Gainesville.

There are mostly new homes on our street. It's also a very safe neighborhood with some devotees living nearby too. It is close to Santa Fe High School; 3-1/2 miles to ISKCON Raman Reti Temple; and one mile to downtown Alachua. It is also less than 1 mile from interstate highway I-75 exit #399 (but you cannot hear the highway!!!) and thus very convenient to Santa Fe Community College/University of Florida, and all other Gainesville shopping. A county school bus goes directly to the devotee charter school at New Raman Reti or any other public school in Alachua.

Right now it only costs $59-69/sq ft- to build a NEW, Low-E(super energy efficient) concrete block home that will meet all your immediate and future needs with LOW energy consumption. No site work is needed; this lot is ready to build upon. Why settle for an aging, high-energy-consuming, fixer-upper that you are always going to be repairing! An additional benefit is that a new house will meet the new codes for any potential hurricanes with winds of up to a category#3 (up to 110mph). Older fixer-uppers will generally require a new roof if a hurricane should ever hit like it did in the fall of 2005 (with winds of only 75 mph - category#1).

There is no minimum size home that must be built. We also have a 1700sq.ft. Vastu house plan(4BR-3Bath) with a Deity standard kitchen (includes a mother-in-law apartment), or you can plan your own design. Our price has recently been reduced; we need to sell it because we need to go to India to work on our health issues and also our spiritual lives! We bought it for 33k including a building permit that was approved but financial conditions caused us to change our plans. We have drastically lowered the price to $22.500! (The Lowest price and best value in the area.) There is also the possibility of some owner financing. Call Lalita Sakhi Dasi or Lokaguru Das at 352-301-2423, or 352-575-5986 or E-mail us at:
