Featured Property | Under the Oaks Farm

11455 N Magnolia Avenue Ocala, Florida 34475
$799,000  • • •  MLS #520894

You’ll love this idyllic 18+ acre property with a newly remodeled 3/2.5 farmhouse. Includes 2 barns totaling 10 stalls, and a luxury barn apartment nestled in an equestrian neighborhood with miles of hacking and proximity to world-class trainers and equine venues. Huge oaks sweep over the private drive as you enter, but those are nothing compared to the 150 yr old giants that throw their dappled shade over the barn courtyard and farmhouse. A wraparound screened porch, hidden rooftop deck and arbor-covered patio all beckon you to enjoy Ocala’s jaw-dropping sunrises and sunsets. Recent renovations incorporate a newly-opened floor plan, granite counters, SS appliances, oil-rubbed hardwoods, travertine master bath and other upgrades. Everything is ready and waiting for you and your horses to move in!
