Horse lovers in Sarasota do not have to move north to Marion County to enjoy an equestrian lifestyle. Sarasota is home to a few neighborhoods where you can find properties that include stables, ranches, pastures, and riding trails; Fox Creek Acres is one of them, and it is less than eight miles away from the downtown arts and culture districts. There are three separate neighborhoods within this large equestrian community: Fox Creek, Pine Valley Ranches, and Fox Creek II, and this is where you can get stunning homes with horse stables, barns, corrals, forest meadows, ponds, and more.
Not all homeowners in Fox Creek keep horses; some just enjoy being able to secure five acres of pristine Florida land at very reasonable prices. In 2019, you can find a four-bedroom country estate with three bathrooms and 2,861 square feet of living space for less than $880K. You can find a nice diversity of architectural styles; the original homes are Florida ranches from the 1970s, but you can also find custom American Craftsman homes and Mediterranean estates. Aside from horse stalls and riding trails, other structures that you may find in Fox Creek homes include dog kennels, greenhouses, elaborate swimming pools with sundecks, and even basketball courts.
Even though living in Fox Creek will make you feel as if you moved to the countryside, this community is actually part of the suburban Fruitville district. Driving to the nearest Publix from the heart of Fox Creek Acres will only take you about 10 minutes, and you can always drive a few more minutes to The Mall at University Town Center. If you enjoy weekend trips to the beach, Siesta Key is just 30 minutes away. Beyond the equestrian features, Fox Creek is a neighborhood where you are shielded from the constant hum of traffic and urban life in general; this is one of the most peaceful neighborhoods you can find in Sarasota.
