Located in Clay County, Florida, the property known as 3 Creeks Crossing recently sold for $3.39 million. Tony Wallace of Saunders Real Estate had the listing. With over 2,600 acres of timberland, 3 Creeks Crossing stands out for its unique combination of recreational space and conservation sites. When the previous owners acquired the property as an investment in 2004, they strived to create a recreational legacy. To that end, they placed a conservation easement on the property, planted longleaf pines, converted several areas to pastureland, and developed a permitted gopher tortoise recipient site. Creating the recipient site was significant, because the gopher tortoise provides shelter for hundreds of other animals with the burrows it digs. (Hence the “gopher” part of its name.) Those burrows can be nine feet deep and 48 feet long. The tortoise, which is native to the Southeast US, is threatened by predators and habitat destruction but has a safe haven at 3 Creeks Crossing.
