Description: Crossed by Charlie Creek, Fish Branch, and two smaller creeks, the land is beautiful and picturesque, full of native Florida vegetation and some of Florida’s most interesting wildlife. The entire length of Charlie Creek, over 4 miles, includes frontage on both sides of the creek and is surrounded by wooded areas. The creek eventually empties into Peace River. Charlie Creek Ranch is a representation of a blend of pasture, farm land, native land, and woods along with elevation ranges that only enhance the character of the property. One of the former long-time owners, in the 1950’s, nick-named the ranch “Sesbania” after a plant with tall stems, large leaves, big yellow flowers, and long drooping fruit. This beautiful property is a rare opportunity to own some of Florida’s most natural lands.
