This extraordinary natural, modern Florida family homestead is just a short drive down a winding, private canopy road. There you will find this thoughtfully planned 5 acre parcel. Every effort has been made to preserve this prime example of mesic hammock. Great care has been taken to leave undisturbed, the generations old stands of native cabbage palms numbering in the hundreds, several mature live oaks, as well as other native species such as wild coffee, beauty berry and firecracker trees. The variety of fauna that flock to and forage on this land is just remarkable. Turkey, resident deer, bobcat, fox, owls, eagles, wading and song birds all visit this property regularly. A 20' deep pond that’s full of fish is also located just beyond the perfect amount of grazing pasture. This property is truly an old Nokomis Florida paradise. This Homestead consists of a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, pool home with an office and a 30x36 metal outbuilding/workshop that exceeds the current hurricane standards. In addition, there is also a 1024 sq/ft, 1 bedroom 1 bath guest home known as “Mike’s Hammock” which among it’s many accolades, was voted SRQ Magazine’s 2020 Home of the Year Under $1m and SRQ Magazine’s 2020 Best Sustainability/Green Home. The main home was custom built in 2006 and features an open floor plan, spacious chef’s kitchen with solid surface countertops, a Kitchenaid Pro stainless steel appliance package, and a stunning 7 foot wide, limestone clad, wood burning fireplace as the centerpiece to the living space.

There is a newly drilled 165 ft deep well.
