Clay County Waterfront Homes for Sale
Check out these Clay County Waterfront Homes for Sale. Clay County has miles of waterfront along the St. Johns River, Doctors Lake, Black Creek and Swimming Pen Creek. The towns of Fleming Island, Orange Park, Middleburg and Green Cove Springs all enjoy waterfront houses.
Doctor’s Lake is a tributary of the St. Johns River and is four miles long and one mile wide. The name derived from the many Doctors who lived along its shores in the early days of the Orange Park area. Doctors Lake Drive is a scenic road that runs along the western shore of the lake, with mature trees and a walkingjogging/biking path that runs the entire length.
Swimming Pen Creek begins at the end of Doctors Lake at the County Road 220 Bridge, also the location of Whitey’s Fish Camp. Whitey’s is popular with local residents who come by land and by boat and enjoy Whitey’s Boat Parade each Christmas. Locals say that Swimming Pen Creek was once open to Black Creek but storms closed it and now wetlands connect them. Requests have been made to the St. Johns Water Management to open it again.
Black Creek runs from the St. Johns River at the south end of Fleming Island, to the North and South Prongs in the Middleburg area. Black Creek is a favorite for boaters due to the calmer waters of its protected waterway.
There are also waterfront houses for sale on lakes in the Lake Asbury area of Middleburg and in Keystone Heights, located in southwest Clay County. These are not lakes navigable to the ocean, but they are large enough for a true boating experience. Lake Asbury totals 190 acres between Upper and Lower Lake Asbury, separated by Lake Asbury Drive. Due to water loss, some of the smaller Keystone Heights lakes are now more suited to jet skis.
There are homes on canals, protected creeks and lakes, and riverfront homes, some with views of downtown Jacksonville. Prices range from the $300,000s to over $1,000,000.
