Ocala Ranch is positioned to be a leading-edge community for active adults seeking to live a lifestyle in an environmentally sensitive resort setting. This is a full-scale residential master planned community, to be developed and homes built in phases over a 20-year period.
Ocala Ranch will embrace Marion County’s equestrian and ranching history by utilizing a contemporary barn style of architecture. Brick will be used throughout the community in several ways to pay homage to the City of Ocala’s rich history of being known as a “Brick City.” Landscaping will showcase beautiful native plant material. Mindfully planned neighborhoods will protect the natural features within the site.
Two distinct gated villages in Ocala Ranch will offer a variety of housing options ranging in size, price and style. There will be single family homes, independent and assisted living facilities, as well as higher density active living units. A mixed-use commercial area with retail, dining, office, medical services, and an EMS station will serve residents in Ocala Ranch and surrounding communities.
Open space connectivity is a key component of Ocala Ranch, while respecting sensitive environmental areas. Tailored to the enthusiastic and adventurous, this community will offer state of the art recreation facilities, numerous outdoor activities, a nature park where bald eagles currently nest, and an option for up to 36-holes of golf, with included golf clubhouse and grill. Amenities offered incorporate the active lifestyle requirements of today with lap pools, fitness facilities, pedestrian trails, event space and more.
The Ocala Ranch team has studied the land constraints and taken a disciplined approach focusing on the marketplace. Ocala Ranch aims to accommodate the area’s projected population growth, create jobs, and benefit the county economically, while preserving the environment.
