Situated east of Venice in Sarasota County, Florida, lies this unique and very private 102 acre equestrian estate. Behind the gated entry, the treed quarter-mile approach drive leads to the 24,000 square foot grand residence, which is capped with a commanding Tuscan tower.
Centering the home is a massive great room with soaring raftered ceilings. The surrounding mezzanine leads to the five bedrooms, each with a distinct character. The residence features a Celebrity Chef ’s kitchen, a library, billiard room, theatre with cinebar, and gymnasium.
Residence grounds include an 8-car air conditioned garage, covered patio with a lovely fountain, a dining gazebo separating the stunning pool and the tennis court. A separate fully equipped guest home features a large 1st floor party area with three bedrooms, two baths on the 2nd floor.
The fenced and cross-fenced grounds are divided into a series of paddocks plus a 5-furlong railed horse track with chute. Toward the rear is an impeccably maintained 22-stall horse stable just waiting to accommodate your prized steeds. Tack room and dressing area. Full staff quarters on the second floor. Multi-bay equipment garage with foreman’s office.
Just a short hop to the beaches, downtown and the airport yet set apart from the hustle and bustle of the Gulf Coast. Equestrian parcels neighbour this secluded property with Sleeping Turtle Preserve to the rear. The adjoining Preserve and neighbouring County Park facilities provide miles of canopied equestrian trails leading to the Myakka River.
