Carrabelle, Florida Little Riverfront Home with Six Acres for Sale
709 Mill Rd., Carrabelle, Florida 32322
Carrabelle is a sleepy town on the eastern Florida Panhandle, about 50 miles southwest of Tallahassee, and it is the locale of this little single family, off-grid, riverfront home with six acres for sale. The property has one bedroom, one bath, 352 square feet and was built in 2010. The asking price is $298,000.
The home has a wood exterior, white French doors, rooftop solar panels and sits atop stilts in the New River. Stairs lead up to the top of the covered boat dock/lift, which leads to a walkway to the house and the Trex deck. A second boat dock/lift is about six feet from the first.
Inside, the walls are wood, as are the floors and vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has wood cabinets and white appliances. A Murphy bed doubles as the kitchen table. There is a walk-in shower with a composting commode.
The home also has on-demand hot water, a mini split AC/heating system and a rainwater catchment system.
From the outside deck, views of water and wilderness (Tate's Hell State Forest) are all around. Neighbors are few and far between. The river offers direct Gulf of Mexico access.
There is no HOA fee.

A working fishing village and deep water seaport on the eastern Florida Panhandle, Carrabelle sits at the convergence of three rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. It is surrounded by water, open land and forests, giving it a rural, old fashioned Florida vibe.
Harvesting seafood remains a way of life for many residents, with shrimpers and oystermen heading out to sea each morning. Sport fishing tourism helps support the local economy. Although the downtown is a little nondescript, it has a grocery and deli, a seafood market, a hardware store, a gift shop and the "World's Smallest Police Station," which is a 1963 phone booth that is now a tourist attraction.
The waterfront is lengthy and authentic, and the Riverfront Festival brings out nearly everyone for food and people watching. Streets are lined with telephone poles, and neighborhoods have everything from tumbledown shacks and fishing cottages to nicer brick ranch ramblers and riverside condominiums.
