The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch features homes by the best custom builders in Sarasota. True estate homesites, with 3 to 5 acres, offer more room for buyers and builders to design unique estate homes in a beautiful wooded Florida setting. Homes range from the $900s with a wide variety of floor plans and styles. Unlike many other communities where choices are limited, buyers at The Forest may work with any of the approved builders. Construction guidelines ensure each home is unique and all are in keeping with Sarasota's premier estate home community.
Choose from the Featured Homes or let one of our builders design the perfect custom home plan. Our exclusive Premier Sotheby's agent Brian Wood is The Forest expert available to guide buyers through the process from selecting a homesite to paring with the best builder for a seamless custom home building experience.
