Property description

Situated with stunning river and creek views in Alva horse country, Otter Creek Ranch is truly a one-of-a-kind property and location with the best to offer both equestrians and mariners. Its rural setting on the Caloosahatchee River is about 20 minutes to Fort Myers, 45 minutes to the beaches, 30 minutes to RSW airport, and 45 minutes to Naples. Caloosahatchee Regional Park is about 4 miles away and is considered one of the best in the state with over 20 miles of recreational trails for biking, hiking, and equestrian use that wind through miles of natural Florida habitat, along with a riverside rest area.

This is a turn-key waterfront and equestrian estate that has been exquisitely designed and maintained with impeccably manicured grounds. The property is approximately 7.6 acres with fenced grazing pastures, a renovated barn/stable with caretaker or guest residence, and approximately 300' of Calooshatchee River frontage. The land is zone AG-2 with Rural as the Future Land Use. A site plan and architectural drawings show that the site is virtually shovel-ready for the addition of a spacious residence.
