25+ acre Equine Estate on NW 225 in NW Marion County, this farm is the pinnacle of equestrian excellence. Peace and privacy are assured by the long driveway leading from the gated entrance, past the front pond with fountain and up to the 5-bedroom, 4-full and 2-half bath multi-story residence. A portico-covered main entrance leads through grand French doors into a tiled foyer with a soaring ceiling and staircase to the second floor. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining with extensive polished-granite countertops, ample storage space, a flat-top range on the island, stainless steel appliances, and two walk-in pantries. The living room features a huge, natural stone wood-burning fireplace, perfect for relaxing on cooler winter nights. 4 of the 5 bedrooms include walk-in closets, and all ground-floor rooms, including the master bedroom, have tall French doors opening into the lanai. The lanai overlooks a stunning pool area, complete with salt-water pool, sun-shelf, and grotto with a waterfall, the pool is heated by passive solar panels during the cooler months. Equestrians have ample space to train year-round, as the property offers an 11-stall CBS barn with steel roof, wash stall, two enclosed utility rooms, and one open stall-sized bay for storage or equipment. Fenced pastures include 2 automatic waterers and a run-in shed. The open concept of the pasture allows horses extensive space to roam and run, maintaining an excellent physical and emotional health. There is an additional 3-acre fenced arena field, currently featuring a full-sized grass dressage arena as well as an adjacent grass jump field and a trail around the perimeter of the farm that is just under a mile long. A variety of equestrian amenities are nearby the farm without sacrificing privacy– just 6 miles to the Ocala Jockey Club's equine development, roughly 9.5 miles to HITS, and about 12.5 miles to the World Equestrian Center. With a stunning landscape, convenient location, and 3 new HVAC units in 2021, this property has plenty to offer!
