There is even an outdoor kitchen under beautiful Oaks, all overlooking a large Pond and back pasture. There are lush plants and landscaping with a swing to watch the deer and turkey graze in your pastures, plus another small pond in the front pasture, an outdoor 4-bay Dog Kennel, which easily could be a chicken coop. The charm and functionality of this property goes on and on with a 42 x 40 Fully Enclosed Barn to store your boat and all your toys or turn it into a horse barn, three bay overhead doors and concrete floors. There is a small tack barn that can be turned into a "she shed" or redone for a garden shed.

And be sure not to miss the beautiful mature canopy oaks and outdoor fire pit. Myakka Valley Ranches is located 7 miles east of I-75 and 14.4 miles from world-famous Siesta Key Beach. It is away from the crowds and yet only 20-30 minutes to all of the wonderful shopping, restaurants, beaches, and cultural events in Sarasota. Myakka Valley Ranches is considered Sarasota’s largest equestrian community. The subdivision is comprised of approximately 285 homes, all 5+ acre parcels, with miles of Saddle Trails for Riding or Hiking, privately owned and maintained paved roads with easements on both sides of the 17 miles of paved roads designated as riding trails throughout the neighborhood. The roads have low traffic, which creates an ideal setting for bike riding and jogging. Two community Nature parks are located within the subdivision for resident use. You can launch a kayak into Howard Creek, which leads to the Upper Lake in Myakka River State Park. Myakka River State Park with 37,000 acres of natural Florida vegetation is situated adjacent to MVR. The park contains miles of hiking trails, two lakes, and a wild & scenic river. It is typical to see native wildlife species: Turkeys, gopher tortoises, alligators, armadillos, fox, deer, otter, and even an occasional bald eagle. Rest easy knowing that there is a fully manned fire station right at the entrance of the neighborhood! Bonus: Fiber Optic internet is available in the neighborhood for all your work-at-home needs. The subdivision is located in an A rated school district, with shopping and restaurants within 20 minutes. Downtown Sarasota, with its many cultural amenities is only 30 minutes away, as are the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key, Lido Key, and Longboat Key. Bring the family, bring the pets and animals. Great Community events. Surround yourself with nature – enjoy the quiet secluded country life.
