Much of the Naples area is restricted for single family and multifamily use. If you call us or another REALTOR, we can help you to identify specific areas to search for other types of property like those that would be suitable for horses. Our website http://www.agent4naples.com can be used to search for listings once you determine an area that would be suitable for your needs.

Hi Kim;
There is a private horse farm/ranch right off of Immokolee Rd. about 2 miles east of 75. Plus an additional 40 acres for sale!! And if you go down further there is another riding school off Immokolee Rd. I was just down there today and saw a vast array of space.
The horse ranch for sale is on desirable corner lot with a high fence and gated. The other horse ranch is down about a mile on a dirt road which is not for sale. But there are like minded people there and horses. As I pulled in to turn around the stalion poked his head out to see who goes there?? I am a horse person and I could see he was taking care of his territory.
It is beautiful country back there. It would be my pleasure to help you in any way. I can be reached directly at 239-450-2010.

All the best;

We owned horses for years and know the specifics of what you may need, high and dry, barn, round pen, pasture, close to trails or room to build what you need. There are a lot of show stables in the area and programs that your kids might be interested in. Also, acreage is at low prices right now if you just want 1-5 acres with a home, and lots of places for ATV fun. We also have some great schools too. I will need to know your price range, time frame for moving etc. Please contact me at (239) 595-5509 or via my website at http://www.NaplesOnTheCoast.com. My husband and I would spend all the time you need and walk property lines with you, we are available everyday with a very flexible schedule and look forward to helping you. What kind of horses do you have?

Hi Kim,

I actually have horses myself, I would say the number one thing you need to look for is a home that is close to horse trails and access to open land, having a horse even on a large piece of land that is not in a "Horsey Area" can be more of a chore, having the drive the horse trailer out every time you want to go on a trail ride for instance. Call me if you would like some down to earth advice on where to live in Naples to enjoy your horses. 239 825 6161 Anytime, I always either answer or return my calls right away.

Hi Kim;
I found a $900K perfect property that is in foreclosure or short sale I believe. Please go to my website http://www.naplesforeclosures.net. Go to the showcase of properties down towards the bottom of the page and you will see a beautiful property in North, Naples. It is a $900K property with everything included for horses. This place is huge and has all the accomadations for a personal horse ranch.
The mls # is:212013245. This property is 10 acres and is a foreclosure. They are listing the property is being sold as is. But that does not mean their is no wiggle room on the price and if a cash deal there may be more wiggle room than one thinks.
Please let me know if this is enough land, house and for horse.

Best Regards;

Hi Kim

There are many single family homes in Naples currently available that already have an equestrian facility, horse barn, room for horses, or zoned to allow horses.

These would be in neighborhoods of Golden Gate Estates, Livingston Woods, Logan Woods, Oakes Estates, Pine Ridge, or other Naples home sites with acreage where horses are ok.

To narrow down the location, where is Grandma? And thoughts on schools? Check out...
http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org/default.asp - and check off "Collier", School Level/s that apply to your kids, and refine Grades or other critria as desired to check out schools. http://www.collier.k12.fl.us/about/fastfacts.asp

Send me an email and I can send homes for your review and answer any of your other questions.

Best regards

Margaret A. Jacobs, Pa, Agent, Naples, FL Hi Kim, I just read your response regarding your concern about the Estates. I live here and know it well. My clients are satisfied and I have specialized here the past 6 years. Yes, there are major differences with the location (West of 951, etc...) and I also can tell you the differences among the acreage sizes which is important to consider as well as other aspects. I see that John gave you links and info to the schools to address that concern which is great and other fellow realtors on here with some good information to do your due diligence. If the listing I have doesn't suit you, we will find the best one to fit your requirements. Again, here is my website if you would like to reach out to me http:// http://(www.yoursunshinehomes.com).

Be diligent in your search. There are communities that will bear you the land but not perhaps be best for all of your needs.

The best place for you would be in Pine Ridge with a couple acres+ where you can have horses too, or in Golden Gate Estates with some acreage. It depends how much you want to invest. If you let me know your price range and some preferences on the house you are looking for, I would be able to send you some listings with the right features.

There are several areas in Naples that have equestrian centers and allow horses. Livingston Woods, Logan Woods, and Pine Ridge are the areas closer to the beaches and downtown Naples. They are in excellant public school zones, and tend to be pricier because of location. Golden Gate Estates is a huge area further east, with properties to fit any budget.

Have you spent much time in Naples? Its an ideal place to raise children...my son was born and raised here, attended public school grades 5-12, and just finished 4 years at FGCU. Naples offers such a variety of recreational activities, while retaining a small city atmosphere...I think your family will fall in love with the area!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I will be happy to assist you in your search for the perfect home.

Thank you for your excellent response. I am not sure of my financial abilities until I sort out my personal situation in the next 6 months but am wanting to maintain my level of living. This means upper middle class with involved parents, good schooling, and opportunities for my children.
I am hoping to find a gem in Livingston Woods for sure. I am here this week and perhaps we can meet up?

Ideal area for horses, etc, would be Golden Gate Estates, my area of expertise. There are various sections, will most of the homes very spacious and land of at least 2.5 acres (the Estates).

Naples has a country area called Golden Gate Estates. Properties in Golden Gate Estates start at over an acre and as large as you can afford. There are many homes with 2, 3, 5 or even 10 acres if that's what you want. The Estates are great and part of Collier County. Only minutes away from downtown and City of Naples. It is considered farm area and therefore animals are allowed. Feel free to contact me if you want more info. 239-825-6487

Best of luck,

My first thought would be Golden Gate Estates. Many equestrian properties there. If you can give me more information about your needs as far as amount of land, number of bedrooms, baths and a price range, I can send more information your way.

There are also properties in the Pine Ridge area that allow horses. Please contact me directly for more information.
