RISMEDIA, May 1, 2009-Nestled in the pristine beauty of the Ocala National Forest, this waterfront estate is one of the finest examples of quality craftsmanship and architectural design available in all of Central Florida. Built in authentic Southwestern style with attention to every detail imaginable, this retreat sits on the pristine spring-fed waters of the over 2,800 acres of Lake Kerr, Marion county’s second largest lake. With more than seven acres of land and over 540 feet of white sand beach, one can find a natural peacefulness and solitude rarely available and still be located within an easy drive of fine dining, shopping and all the cultural venues offered by the nearby city of Ocala, considered the capital of America’s thoroughbred horse farming.
Built as a family retreat, this home offers something for everyone in the family. The gourmet kitchen will inspire your culinary muse with its Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator, three convection ovens, ceramic cooktop and custom paneled refrigerator drawers. The courtyard beckons to those who have a “lazy bone” to spare. If the stacked stone hot tub doesn’t relax you, maybe the sound of the water flowing gently into the blue-bottomed swimming pool will. This courtyard was designed to blend seamlessly with the estate’s Southwestern idealism. It’s varied quarried tiles, hand-picked accent boulders, summer kitchen, pergolas and ceiling fans provide the perfect tone for rest after a hard day of work. If you are looking for adventure and exercise, take a stroll on the naturally landscaped grounds or explore the hidden sitting garden.
Take advantage of the tennis court, the fenced and irrigated farmer’s garden or even the sparkling waters of Lake Kerr. Jump on the jet ski, take a spin in the jet boat or simply take a ride on the Islandia and enjoy the Florida sunshine.
