Property description

Luxury lifestyle ranch and farm on 42 acres in Florida’s West Coast. Turnkey offering includes farm equipment and animals. The ultimate in sustainable luxury, this cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind residence was designed by Sweet Sparkman architects and built in 2019 by Josh Wynne Construction. The fully-functioning homestead consists of the main residence, manager’s house, guest studio, workshop, horse barn, pole barn, three pastures, fenced food garden, stocked lake, cattle pond, two deep-water wells, farm equipment, and a variety of farm animals including cattle, pigs, goats, ducks, chickens and guinea hens. Green features include a 10kW solar array, insulated windows, EnergyStar appliances, WaterSense fixtures, high-efficiency HVAC with humidity control and fresh-air exchange, rainwater capture, passive cooling and heating, and whole-house generator. Green certifications include NGBS Emerald certification and a HERS index of minus 31.

A long, oak-canopied driveway sets the tone for life here, simultaneously sublime and down to earth. The 6,901 sq. ft. residence sits above grade for a commanding view of the lake and pastures. Spread out across a single level, the home comprises a series of indoor and outdoor areas, all under one roof, linked via open-air breezeways — a nod to Florida’s iconic “dog trot” architecture designed to surround living spaces with cooling breezes. The open floor plan establishes a connection between indoor and outdoor, highlighted by floor-to-ceiling glass along the entire northwest exposure of the home. The abundance of windows provides optimal natural light, air circulation and, of course, views. Wading birds, bobcats, turkeys, deer and foxes frequent the scenery — it’s magical!

The high-end kitchen features custom wood cabinetry, 13-ft. eat-in island and a huge walk-in butler’s pantry. Not to be outdone, the outdoor kitchen/dining space elevates al fresco dining with authentic Brazilian wood-burning stove and 600 sq. ft. under roof. Outdoor living continues with a 12-ft. deep lanai that spans the back of the home with a massive wall of motorized screens to control insects and increase shade in the late afternoon. The breezeway to the private quarters adjoins a courtyard garden with a heated spa and access to the 40-ft. heated outdoor pool. Quietly removed from the living areas, this section has three bedrooms, two baths, a home office and the laundry.

This property gets everything exactly right. A lifestyle connected to nature. A home that is healthy to live in. A way of life that treads lightly on the land. All in all, an incredible place to live — approved by Mother Nature.
