NAPLES, Fla. (PRWEB) January 14, 2022
Engel & Völkers Florida today announced a new listing by Carrie Cason with Engel & Völkers Gainesville. Cason is representing the ‘Snooty Fox Farm,’ a 341-acre property located on NW County Rd 239 in Alachua, Florida. It is offered at $5,499,000. The land has been used for the last 49 years as a thoroughbred horse farm by the Cotter family; in which time it developed an impressive pedigree of award-winning racehorses.
This is a beautiful legacy property that has contributed to the rich history of our area,” said Cason, License Partner of Engel & Völkers Gainesville. “Having produced several award-winning thoroughbred horses, it is clear that these facilities are top-notch for equestrian training. The home fits the equestrian style and is complete with beautiful wood finishes from floor to ceiling. It’s situated on a hill with beautiful views of the sunset and rolling pastures. Located within an hour of the famous World Equestrian Center, this property is a true horse-lover's dream!”
The Snooty Fox Farm earned a place in equine history as the birthplace of two Wood Memorial winners and one Kentucky Derby participant. The Cotters owned ‘Hurry Home Hillary,’ a mare who gave birth to a colt named ‘Bellamy Road.’ This foal was owned by the Kinsman Stable, the nom de course of George Michael Steinbrenner III, and went on to win the 2004 Cradle Stakes and 2005 Wood Memorial Stakes, amongst others. He was considered a favorite for the 2005 Kentucky Derby, but finished seventh. He then ended his career with a second place finish in the 2005 Travers Stakes. The Cotters bred ‘Toby's Corner’ from Bellamy Road, who was the winner of the 2011 Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial Stakes and more.
“Carrie came highly recommended by multiple people,” said Carrie Cotter, part owner of the property. “Alachua is a niche market and this property requires a unique buyer, so we wanted to garner as much exposure as possible with a global company like Engel & Völkers.”
The 341-acre property offers an eight-stall barn with four adjacent paddocks, grass show jumping ring, feed room and workshop, and three fenced pastures. The 4,904 square foot home contains four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, formal sitting room, dining room, library and study, laundry room, and two game rooms. The house, which is centered around the kitchen, features wide-plank, tongue and groove hardwood floors throughout, as well as a walk-in cupula with 360-degree views of the property.
“Since affiliating herself with Engel & Völkers, Carrie has become the go-to person known for successfully selling unique and luxurious homes in her market,” said Peter Giese, Chief Executive Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. “Due in part to the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School and the tournaments it sponsors, our brand has become synonymous with selling equestrian properties across the globe.”
Cason came to Engel & Völkers in 2020 when she secured the franchise rights to Alachua and Columbia Counties. Her first shop, Engel & Völkers Gainesville is slated to host an official grand opening on February 3, 2022. She has represented several record-breaking transactions including ‘Honey Lake Plantation,’ located in Madison County for $6.5 million in 2016. The ‘Double Barrel Ranch’ is currently under contract for $4,995 million; the previous highest sale price for a single-family home in Lake City was $1.73 million. She has been in the real estate industry for over twenty years, earning her brokers license in 2004 and designations such as the GRI and CCIM along the way. She has closed over 600 transactions throughout her career, totaling a volume of more than $150,000,000.
