Millard Seldin began spending time in Ocala in the 1970’s. He purchased his first two horses at the Ocala Breeder’s Sale in 1978.
During the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, the land parcels that comprise Ocala Ranch were made available for purchase from the Drake family. Millard admired its beauty and envisioned land-planning the site in the future. Ocala Ranch is now positioned for a mixed-use master-planned community.
Originally purchasing the Ocala Ranch land with partners, the property is now 100% owned by Kent Circle Partners | Seldin Real Estate, Inc., of Scottsdale, AZ. Millard Seldin and his son Scott the present owners of the land have reexamined the property and are currently in the entitlement process for an active adult community including homes, up to 36 holes of golf, a fire station, retail, commercial and medical services, and pedestrian trails. Their vision is to utilize the land properly while being sensitive to its natural beauty, and to complement the approvals of the State of Florida and Marion County with a project that will benefit the whole community. Today, working closely with local and national experts, municipalities and neighbors, a logically phased master-planned design is a thoughtful and a shared effort.
