Come experience Whispering Pine Estate, a Cahill Custom home built in 2004, nestled in the heart of towering pine and oak trees on a VERY private cul-de-sac. The home offers 4 bedrooms, a formal dining room, "open-air" den, plus a great room with disappearing sliders leading to a large pool. There is also a 3 car motor-court garage and sparkling blue lake. The home is being offered for lease, lease purchase or as a straight sale. There are NO wetlands on this 8+ acre estate, so if the family wants horses, one can clear the land and add a barn as well as a workshop or guest house. Panther Ridge is located next to Lakewood Ranch and offers country living with estate-property distinction. Its natural setting evokes 'old Florida' and is vast enough for residents to enjoy horseback riding, elaborate gardens, and complete privacy. Single-family homes are showcased on home sites that encompass 5+ acres. Designs vary from 'old Florida' southern estates, contemporary Florida homes to modern country mansions, each adding its own luster to this beautifully conceived estate/equestrian community. There are 2 parks featuring a horse-riding area, basketball court, baseball area, plus a covered area for picnicking. The hiking/riding trails cover 15 mls of land with oak filled hammocks, bridges over creeks, and wide-open spaces highlighted by towering pine. Across the street is The Concession Golf and Country Club, and a new Publix is being built only a few minutes away. It's country WITHOUT the country drive.
