The property is located on the Intracoastal waterway within the City of St. Augustine, immediately adjacent to the 312 bridge onto Anastasia Island. The property, even though it is in an urbanized environment, has a healthy maritime hammock forest, and preservation would avoid significant run-off and dock impacts to adjacent estuarine habitats. However, the primary conservation purpose is historic, as the island was the site of one of the plantations integral to the history of St. Augustine and still has some ruins and other evidence of the historic use. The property was recently proposed for development, setting a serious community initiative to have the property saved.
