The 13.59-Acre property is improved as a young Lychee grove with over 650 Lychee trees ranging from 2 - 9 years old, many of which are currently reaching maturity for profitable production. In addition, 240 dragon fruit plants are established on sturdy trellises along with a small sampling of other exotic tropical fruit trees near the 1/3 acre pond. Infrastructure has been carefully designed with over 150 mature bamboo plants serve as both perimeter and in-row windbreak.
The barn contains 4 enclosed bays, an office, a workroom, 2 restrooms and has been expanded with 3 additional outdoor bays for equipment storage. Along with the 3/2 house, this property provides living quarters, work space and facilities to promote a self-contained, profitable, income- producing operation to be easily managed by an owner-user. Approximately 2 unplanted acres have irrigation lines run for expansion of the Lychee tree grove or other crops.
The location in highly desirable Martin County is in close proximity to the markets of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches. The property is surrounded by attractive agricultural and preserve lands including cattle ranches, equestrian farms and groves, creating a pleasant atmosphere that is both secluded but accessible to the urban areas of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, a perfect rural area that is not too far from the conveniences of urban life. Lychee and dragon fruit are highly desirable exotic fruits often used in trendy cocktails and deserts in high end restaurants. The property is located in an area north of the major planted Lychee areas of South Florida. This is desirable for Lychee fruit as this slightly cooler climate provides the appropriate chilling hours to maximize production, unlike many areas of South Florida, while still being resistant to frost.
