Experience and Integrity: Guiding You at Every Step

Property Description

Enter your new estate down a private paved drive through a gap in the trees where you will likely see deer or turkey. The long driveway opens up to 3 board fence pastures with run-in stalls and will turn to reveal your large rustic stone and cypress siding home with matching barns and outbuildings. This house boasts 6 bedrooms and 3 baths with a cathedral ceiling in the living room. There is room for all the family to visit for home games at UF. Have everyone over to go swimming in the pool or saddle-up and ride the property or in the nearby Turkey Creek or San Felasco Hammock parks. Formerly an equestrian boarding facility this property has plenty of divided pastures and run in stalls. The main barn has rustic cypress siding and a metal roof with 4 stalls, large tack room, wash rack feed room and living space above. There is a 2nd small barn with single stall and tack room with a nearby wash rack as well. Hay storage, workshop, covered trailer parking, pump shed and a few run-in shelters round out the outbuildings. The property is adjacent to University run Forestry and Fishery properties so will likely remain a relatively private oasis indefinitely. Home and grounds are livable but could use updating. Once you are out here in the country halfway between Gainesville and Alachua surrounded by wildlife and the quiet you will find it hard to believe you are only 15 minutes away from a Wal-Mart and other shopping. Additional 36 acre parcel, which is directly adjacent to San Felasco Hammock, is also available for more pasture and woods. Combined these properties would be almost 60 acres with the tremendous development potential to be rezoned to 1/2 Acre lots.
