Panther Ridge


Come experience Whispering Pine Estate, a Cahill Custom home built in 2007, nestled in the heart of towering pine and oak trees on a VERY private cul-de-sac. If you have always dreamed of owning your very own heavily wooded lot as well as having a private pond on the property for fishing, then your search is over! There is no other homesite available like this in all of Panther Ridge. The 8+ acre estate has NO WETLANDS, is heavily wooded, located on a dead-end road, and the home can barely be seen from the road, it's that private. This beautiful home offers 4 bedrooms, a formal dining room, an open-air den, plus a great room with disappearing sliders leading to a large screened pool. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, upgraded cabinets, an open concept floor plan, while the Owner's Suite provides a phenomenal Spa Bathroom with a huge jet tub and amazing shower you have to see to believe. All of the bedrooms are spacious as are the bathrooms. There is also a very roomy 3 car motor-court garage. As there are NO wetlands on this 8+ acre estate, if the family wants horses, one can fence and clear areas for pasture as well as add a barn, workshop, or guesthouse (up to 3 structures are allowed, however subdividing the property is not allowed). Panther Ridge is located next to Lakewood Ranch and offers country living with an 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. Animals allowed include horses and cows as well as cats and dogs (no sheep, goats, chickens etc tho). 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 miles of land with oak filled hammocks, rustic bridges over creeks, and wide-open spaces highlighted by majestic oak and towering pine. If you love to golf, try out the Concession Golf and Country Club located on the south side of ST RD 70 (so close you can bike there!), which offers a private golf course package as well as a social membership (Panther Ridge residents may join if they like but membership is not mandatory). Minutes away you will find The Premier Sports Campus at Lakewood Ranch as well as a new Publix/shopping center that is currently under construction. Wonderful restaurants, nail and hair salons, gyms, a multitude of golf courses and so much more are very close by. All in all, Panther Ridge offers a peaceful place to call home and enables you to enjoy a very private country lifestyle with a short drive to amenities. Where can you find all of that for this very low price, and not only that, but Seller may also consider a lease-purchase, just ask us for more details.
