December 2022/January 2023 The Homestead – WEST FLORIDA DREAM RANCH



"Land is the only thing in the
world that amounts to anything.”

—Author Margaret Mitchell

And this land is breathtaking … welcome to
one of the most beautiful ranches in the state
of Florida.
A&A Cattle Co. property sits perfectly on
73 +/- incredible acres in the heart of south
Sumter County where country is still country! Driving the
winding road, you enter this private paradise tucked away
in tranquility and peacefulness. Sit back and enjoy stunning
sunrises and breathtaking sunsets.
The ranch is surrounded by large tracts of private land with no
shortage of deer, turkeys, rabbits, doves, turtles and fish. For
the avid hunter, it’s conveniently located a few short miles from
the Richloam Wildlife Management Area, Withlacoochee State
Forest and the Green Swamp Nature Preserve.

Capitalize on the existing and lucrative hunting operation
of the highly prized Osceola turkey using a unique, all
natural and custom-made stationary blind. Or fish from
the bridge or stand along the banks of the canopied flowing
creek that feeds into Gant Lake and draws in an abundance
of additional wildlife.
A new 60x100x18 custom barn is incredible and loaded
with upgrades such as a 20×40 enclosed workshop with
3 roll-up bay garage doors and concrete flooring. This
barn offers LED lighting, 50-amp RV hook-up, 200-amp
service, with additional 220-volt outlets, running water,
2-foot on-center rafters, 10×10 posts, a 26-gauge metal
roof and lime-rock base. It holds hundreds of rolls of hay,
or tractors and tons of farm equipment but can easily
house your boats, RVs, trucks and toys.
Currently being used for a cow-calf operation, the land
boasts improved lush pastures that are cross-fenced for
management, 5 fenced acres with zoned irrigation and a
commercial well (6-inch, 10 horsepower, 3-phase pump) that
is invaluable for homesteading and farming opportunities.

If you are looking for authentic Florida treasures, the property includes a
100-year-old picturesque cracker cabin that sits near a small pond with majestic
cypress trees and noble grandfather oaks scattered throughout.
The ranch-style home built in 2020 includes thoughtful details, tons of custom
upgrades and incredible porch views.
Noteworthy features include a custom kitchen with a double-wall oven,
electric cooktop, custom solid-wood cabinetry, a stone wrapped bar, granite
countertops, gas fireplace with stone accents, and a raw edge wood mantel,
plantation shutters, tankless hot water heater, mudroom with half bath,
concrete siding, metal roof and gutters.
The screened-in back porch screams country with cypress ceilings and remotecontrolled
ceiling fans that would make your grandma jealous!
The postcard picture front porch that overlooks this beautiful property also
includes the cypress ceilings and remote-controlled ceiling fans to keep you cool
and comfortable while enjoying the stunning sunsets and all that nature offers.
This property is 5 miles to the Webster cattle market, 64 miles to Tampa
International Airport, 41 miles to the Gulf of Mexico, and 51 miles to Ocala. FCM
