Pine Ridge Estates
Pine Ridge Estates has been referred to as the hidden gem of Citrus County.
Just as a gem sparkles from its many facets, Pine Ridge Estates casts its own special aura upon its residents.
It is a deed restricted community of more than 10,000 acres with almost 5,000 lots ranging in size from one plus (1+) to more than five and a half (5 1/2) acres.
The landscape is dotted with rolling hills, wooded areas, natural vegetation, and its namesake Pine trees. Labeled as a designated Bird Sanctuary, it is not uncommon for one to observe the Bald Eagle, Woodpeckers, Great Horned Owl or Red-tailed Hawk. Add an abundance of wildlife such as the Gopher Tortoise, Bobcats, the endangered Florida Panther and an occasional Black Bear and you have a nature enthusiast delight.
It is a perfect place for equestrians to live. From the picturesque pastures to the stables and riding trails, it is a horse lover’s delight. A large number of lots in Pine Ridge Estates are certified for the stabling of horses, and there is approximately thirty (30) miles of horse trails for the 100 plus horses stabled on various lots throughout the community.
