Unique opportunity to own a world class equestrian facility with versatility! Maxamillion Farms is capable of housing any riding style and has great income producing potential with infrastructure already in place to be used as a training, boarding or breeding facility. The beautiful homes, barns, wells, and included equipment offer all the support facilities needed for the operation. The Argentine Bahiagrass grazing land is fenced with 6 total paddocks, including two larger paddocks that you could turn up to 4 horses out into. The deeded lands consist of 98.11 acres, all of which can be classified as ag-exempt. There is plenty of opportunity for this beautiful property; at one time simultaneously serving as a cattle operation and currently generating lease income on 40 acres. Located in the Northwest Florida panhandle in the secluded outskirts of DeFuniak Springs, you would never know you are just 50 miles north of the beautiful Beaches of South Walton on Northwest Florida's Emerald Coast. Although, the farm is located in the rural north end of Walton County, the beach communities of the south end has driven booming growth; making Walton county one of the nation's fastest growing areas and driving infrastructure such as new schools for the county as a whole. Walton County is currently recognized as a Florida Department of Education A+ School district.
DeFuniak has a humid subtropical climate which is characterized by high rainfall and mild winters that rarely go below freezing, resulting in a long growing season for agricultural and industrial crops. Maxamillion Farms is located just 20 miles from Interstate 10 and many of the region's A-rated equestrian events, including a short 4 ½ hour drive to the "Horse Capital" of Ocala. You are also within 65 miles of two commercial airports; Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (40 miles); Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (65 miles) in Panama City, or a short drive to DeFuniak Springs Municipal Airport.
Attention to detail and a whole lot of love went into the designing of this farm. It is fully fenced with beautiful high-performance electrified board fencing and equipped with everything you need for a world class equestrian operation! Previously used as a hunter/jumper facility you will find a lighted outdoor riding arena with footing designed for performance horses. All paddocks and pastures have automatic water systems. The farm is self-sustaining, equipped with an industrial size diesel generator that will supply power to the entire property. There are multiple wells, including a high pressure agricultural well and three barns.
The 4,800 sq. ft. modern, Ameristeel horse barn can withstand winds up to 140 mph. The barn is outfitted with custom rubber mats that aid in cleanliness and slip resistance and includes twelve, 14 x 14 stalls, each with their own center drain, individual high-performance ceiling fans and fly control system. The air-conditioned tack room is equipped with washer/dryer, refrigerator and has hot & cold water and a ½ bath.
The second barn is 4,840 sq. ft. and is currently being used as an equipment/storage barn and includes three over-sized car/truck garages with individual garage doors. The third barn is 6,850 sq. ft. with concrete flooring, great for storage for hay, shavings, and trailers but would also work well as a cattle barn.
The property has two residences; the first is a 2,304 sq. ft., 3 bedroom, 3 bath, with two large living areas and a fully screened patio complete with saltwater pool and hot tub. The second is a charming, 1,134 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 bath cottage with vaulted ceilings and a screened-in porch.
This Equestrian Ranch is a dream; offering versatility for both a working and recreational lifestyle property with all the comfort and conveniences one could desire. The improvements are in great condition and the offering includes the generator, tractors and equipment currently in use; each of which is serviced annually with records. Life in Florida has countless advantages, but also consider that Florida has no personal (state) income tax. *Acreage includes six consecutive parcels (41.8 zoned Large Scale Ag and 58.82 zoned General Ag) and should be verified by buyer.
