Close Out Release Of Final Home Sites

The Forest Hi Hat Ranch Blvd EntranceThe Hi Hat Ranch development team has decided not to open future phases for The Forest. The current 54 home sites, of which approximately 20 remain available, will be the only ones offered in this gated neighborhood designed exclusively for large estate properties.  Three home sites, previously held for future model homes, are also being released.

“This fist phase of The Forest has the perfect setting for a unique larger acreage estate neighborhood,” said managing partner Tom Dabney. “It’s just not possible to match the look and feel in the immediate adjacent property so we have decided to make it an even more exclusive neighborhood by limiting to just the initial home sites.”

Dabney authorized The Forest’s Premier Sotheby’s International Realty agent Brian Wood to release three special developer home sites not previously available for purchase by the public.  These include numbers 2, 5 and 27 on the current site plan.  See a video preview of these home sites on The Forest YouTube Channel.

“Our family has some 10,000 acres within the Hi Hat Ranch and planning is ongoing for future residential development,” said Dabney. “Our primary four-lane boulevard off Clark Road is in place and as Sarasota continues to expand east of I-75 we will be ready with a variety of neighborhoods in what we know will be the area’s next great ‘Ranch’ master planned community.”

The Turner family has owned Hi Hat Ranch since the 1940s and continues as stewards of the vast holding. Current land management includes cattle and other agricultural operations along with residential development at The Forest.
