Dream Farm: It’s All About the Paddocks

This is a farm that would fit right into many of our lives.  Not too big, not too small, with a lovely, upgraded house and a clean, tidy barn.  It’s also in a fantastic location: Adjacent to the new World Equestrian Center (for riders) and across the street from Golden Ocala (for golfers).  (Hint, hint: Satisfy your equestrian bug and tell your significant other that they can go golfing across the street; everyone’s happy).  On 29 acres, the property is secluded so you can get some peace and quiet.

However, the BIG thing that sold us on this farm are the turnout paddocks.  They’re huge — and check out the fence lines in the photos below.  They’re actually curved, which is a safety feature that can help prevent a horse from bullying another and getting it “stuck” in a corner — the lower man on the totem pole has more leeway to escape.  In addition, for those fits of wooohoooooo time, it’s ideal as horses can simply gallop along the curved fence line, rather than having to make sharp turns in the corners and risk an injury.  It’s all about the paddocks, in this case!

2780 NW 77th Avenue Rd, Ocala, FL (Marion County)

Why yes, I think I will enjoy a glass of wine in front of my glistening fireplace with these amazing floor to ceiling windows in the background…

This shower is so huge, you could go swimming in it.

The firepit and pool are gorgeous.  You can see the barn a short stone’s throw away.

The barn was custom-designed to match the house’s look and feel.

6 stalls, a huge center aisle, feed and tack rooms are yours to fill.  There is also a one bedroom/one bathroom apartment attached to the barn.

Note the rolling turnout paddocks and curved fence lines! There is not currently an arena (yet), but the arena will be installed this year.

It’s easy to keep an eye on your horses from either the barn or the house (and sneak some treats, of course).
