Ocala, Florida is a wonderful place to live, work, and play! This quintessential Florida city offers the natural beauty that makes our state so unique, and it’s the perfect distance from all the beloved tourist areas so that you can still enjoy them with a quick daytrip. If you want to call this part of Florida home, we invite you to experience Sandy Pines, our boutique community of just 20 new homes in Ocala with prices starting in the $180’s.

Daily Living with Ease

Sandy Pines’ Ocala location off SW 103rd Street Road and SW 49th Avenue puts your new home convenient to shopping, dining and countless outdoor activities, as well as major roadways including I-75 and Highway 200. You’ll be minutes away from the grocery stores, pharmacies and retail centers that Ocala residents rely on in Paddock Mall, Steeple Chase Shopping Plaza, and Market Street at Heath Brook. Plus, you’re also just a short drive from downtown Ocala’s historic square, which offers local shops and restaurants, such as La Cuisine Restaurant’s unique French/Italian fare or the locally made wines at Katya Vineyards. 

Outdoor Living in Central Florida

Ocala offers a country-like setting with plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature. Sandy Pines is close to some of Central Florida’s famed natural springs, including Rainbow Springs and Silver Springs. The Ocala National Forest, which is the southernmost forest in the continental U.S. and the world’s largest sand pine scrub forest, is also just a short distance away and includes  more than 600 lakes, rivers, and springs. 

Part of Florida’s horse country, Ocala will be home to the World Equestrian Center, opening in 2021. This unique facility is slated to offer a three-acre outdoor stadium, on-site riding trails, hotel, retail, restaurants, and amenities. And this is in addition to the many equestrian facilities that already exist throughout Ocala!

It goes without saying that just about any location in Florida is located convenient to a golf course! Sandy Pines is no exception. Royal Oaks Golf Club and Oak Run Country Club are both less than five miles away from the community, each offering 18 beautiful holes to play.
