Upon arriving at the farm, visitors are welcomed by a custom-painted aluminum entrance gate with 7 ft. rock columns. The 900 ft. driveway winds into a tear-drop around a magnificent granddaddy oak in front of the residence. A ¼ mile crushed-rock road winds around the back of the property to the commercial barn, and there are 14 zones of irrigation covering extensive gardens, bushes, and trees.

Master Suite – If you’re looking for a taste of tranquility, the master suite is the place to find it. Two large walk-in closets offer more than enough storage space for everyone. French doors lead from the suite to the pool deck for ease of movement. The en-suite is gorgeous and includes a large jacuzzi tub, his-and-hers vanities, tray ceilings, soft lighting, and a beautiful bay window.
Additional Indoor details – The home includes an office with a beautiful bay window and extensive built-in shelving for the working professional. Those who like staying close to home will also enjoy the glass-enclosed gym space facing the pool area.
Outdoors – Central Florida’s balmy weather is perfect to enjoy all year long, and easy to do at Stonewater Ranch. The home offers a sparkling black-bottom salt-water pool complete with three waterfalls and an expansive pool deck. A portion of the pool deck is also covered, providing plenty of shade in the warmer months. 3 large porches allow for private enjoyment, or additional space for hosting. There is a large, stocked pond on property between the barn and main residence with a 16 x 40 ft. rock waterfall and picturesque bridge connecting both parts of the property.

Designed by professional equestrians.
The private setting of Stonewater Ranch was designed with the active equestrian in mind. The 18-stall barn is center and cross-aisled, with a concrete block construction for added hurricane resistance. The barn also includes automatic waterers in each stall, a hot water wash-rack, cement shavings bin, feed room, tack room, and ½ bath. Large, covered porches are located on both ends of the barn.
Stonewater’s immaculate grounds includes a large pasture measuring roughly 10-acres and 5 large paddocks perfectly maintained for happy horses. The professionally engineered riding arena is located near-by, ideal for those looking to train all year long. The property offers several areas well-suited for setting up jumps or a dressage ring. Another 20 acres of the farm offers nearly 1 mile of riding / hiking trails throughout a shady, wooded area.
For those looking to get a little in return for their investment, Stonewater Ranch is an income producing property– 5 RV hookups with water and septic are located behind the barn in a nicely wooded area. These hook-ups have been previously rented at $500 – $600/month, while dry stalls have been rented at $225/month. A roof over cement foundation off the back could easily be finished into a one-bedroom barn apartment and could make for a nice seasonal rental or longer-term rental.
