One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. Pass through the new entry gate down a beautiful tree-lined drive to 22+ acres of rolling pasture within NW Marion County’s horse country. Strategically located less than 30 minutes from the new World Equestrian Center, HITS, Ocala and Gainesville, and less than 6 miles from Ocala Jockey Club, the property’s pristine open pasture can easily accommodate a large barn, paddocks, and training arena as desired. Uniquely constructed, the main home was built in 2007 with an innovative split floor plan designed with hosting in mind. The master suite with en-suite comprises 500 sq.ft. of space, plus an adjoining custom-built library and office in its own private wing of the home. Two additional bedrooms, a bonus flex room, and full bath adjacent to the pantry complete the private family wing. A large, semi-commercial chef’s kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, a large 6-burner gas range, 2 full-sized electric convection ovens, ample storage and countertop space, and an additional laundry/pantry room. The kitchen opens to a spacious 1000 sq.ft. combination living / dining room features new paint and flooring. The home’s guest wing is equipped with 8 additional bedrooms and 4 more bathrooms for the complete comfort of guests.
The property also features a 2,200 sq.ft. air-conditioned multipurpose concrete block outbuilding. The outbuilding has the potential to be converted into 4-6 stall horse barn, combination horse barn with apartment, or a second full home. Current design is a 900 sq.ft. open common area as you enter with 4 additional rooms and 2-full bathrooms. The exteriors of both the main home and the conference center have been recently painted and stucco, and there are a variety of upgrades including new tankless hot water heating, water softener, main AC, and well tank recently installed. The property offers immense versatility for a B&B or short term accommodations– perfectly showcasing this, the current owners routinely host veterinarians who attend acupuncture classes at a nearby veterinary university, which is a UF extension located just a few miles away. This premiere property has potential for a variety of uses, and is ready for those with a little imagination!
