This internationally featured classic country estate home and horse ranch covered several pages of "Hoof Beats" magazine in March of 2002, not long after the architectural masterpiece home was completed on this 75 acre Florida heartland. It will also be featured in the next nationally distributed edition of "Coastal and Waterfront" magazine. The home was designed by renowned architect, Ron Haase, from the University of Florida, the state expert on Florida historic, functional and classic "cracker" architecture. It was on this ranch where the owners bred Duchess Faye, which now holds the World Record for 3 year old trotting fillies. The natural beauty of this property is truly remarkable, with 4 natural fishing lakes, 200 year old Oaks, an Oak lined creek, and a gentle roll to the green pastures.
Several additional buildings on the 75 acres add significant value; over 2,000 SF manufactured home, 1200 SF manufactured home, storge barns, working sheds, two hay barns, and several run-ins in the pastures for the horses. This is also an excellent investment, consider the future land use designation that is one home per 2.5 acres! (Do the math!)
