One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. Nestled within Marion County’s picturesque horse country, this beautifully designed farm spans nearly 40-acres of pristine, scenic countryside. Fenced and gated, the farm has plenty of potential for multiple disciplines looking to be near some of the best show venues the area has to offer and is currently in-use as a thoroughbred farm. Multiple barns dot the landscape, offering a total of 23-stalls that include several that are used as foaling stalls. The main barn rests central to the acreage’s many farm amenities and features a center-aisle design with wash rack and additional tack and feed storage. 8 paddocks are in-place, the majority of which features 3-board fencing reminiscent of Kentucky horse farms. The farm also includes a round pen and a eurocizer with plenty of potential to convert existing areas to include an arena, jump field, or other amenities as desired! The main home sits at the heart of the property and offers a stunning country-style design surrounded by mature landscaping and a huge wrap-around porch with a gazebo-style seating area. Light and bright, the home provides a total of 4-bedrooms and 3.5-baths with over 3,000 sq.ft. of space. Wood and tile flooring run throughout, as well as high cathedral ceilings and lots of windows that allow stunning views of the farm to act as a feature in many areas of the home. The main living space features a stunning floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace to enjoy on cooler winter nights. For those who enjoy cooking, the kitchen is well-equipped with lots of cabinet and counter space, a tiled backsplash, center island with flat cook-top and stainless vent hood, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast nook with bay-windows. The master suite has an especially large layout complete with a large walk-in closet and private en-suite that includes dual vanities, a glass-door walk-in shower, and large garden tub. An attached garage was previously converted into an additional studio apartment with full kitchen and could remain as such or be converted back as desired. At the back of the home is a sparkling in-ground pool with a large pool deck surrounded by privacy hedging and overlooked by the rear section of the porch. An additional barn apartment provides the perfect opportunity for use as a manager’s residence or potentially a seasonal rental, offering 3-bedrooms and 1-bath with a full kitchen, living room, and dining area. This farm is located under 15 minutes to HITS and roughly 15-20 minutes to the World Equestrian Center, with a variety of tack and feed shops, equine service providers, and veterinary care located throughout the area. A short drive from the farm opens up Ocala’s many shopping, dining, event, and medical options, making this farm the perfect blend of countryside excellence with a highly convenient location!
