Small Community Big Lots at Pine Ranch
It’s been said that good things come in small packages, and whoever said it first might have been talking about Pine Ranch in Osprey. Pine Ranch is a small and largely unknown community, only 34 delightful and lavish single-family luxury homes on the east side of Osprey. Homes sit on generous 2-acre lots in a community bordered by golf courses, nature preserves, and famous Oscar Scherer State Park. These are genuinely elegant homes on lots large enough to spread out all your “stuff” and finally get comfortable. Several lakes grace Pine Ranch, and most of the homes are blessed with a scenic lakefront view. While Pine Ranch is far removed from the noise of the cities, it’s still close to superb schools, superior shopping and dining, and a world of outdoor recreational options.
