Freedom Ranch


Exceptional Property


S E Okeechobee Co., FL




Email Broker






Freedom Ranch is a beautiful 137 acre ranch that is currently operating as a country church ministry, teaching and recreational center.  The land has agricultural zoning with a “special exception” granted by Okeechobee County that allows the current use and more that are not usually permitted within Ag Zoning.   The ranch has a great location in extreme southeast Okeechobee County, Florida, located on US 441 South, just north of CR 15B.  SR 710 and Martin Highway (SR714) are within two miles of the ranch for a quick commute to West Palm Beach, Stuart or Ft. Pierce.  For a bonus, you have Lake Okeechobee across the street from the property, with a boat ramp within a few miles.
If you have a unique vision for some type of retreat, group home, recovery or rehabilitation center or event center, and have not found what you are looking for, you need to look at this exceptional property.  This is one of a kind, in appearance, amenities, location and versatility.  Okeechobee County regulations allow the special exceptions on this multi-use property to be transferred to the new owner.  The possibilities for the property are endless.  Currently the ranch is comprised of three separate parcels, with large meeting hall, single family home, and various home sites with the potential for more.  There are two horse barns with six to eight stalls plus tack and feed rooms; numerous pastures and paddocks with horse sheds, board and wire fencing.
Talk about an outstanding piece of property, you will not believe your eyes when you get a look at all the “Grandfather Oaks” and large cypress trees scattered over the property.  A portion of the ranch is heavily wooded, and on occasion you will encounter deer, turkey and wild hogs.  The club house and family home are located in an absolutely stunning location, nestled beneath the towering live oaks.
Meeting and Recreation Hall or Club House, is CBS construction, with porches on three sides and a metal roof.  Building is placed in a beautiful setting of cypress, oak trees with lush vegetation.  This is a very versatile and multi-purpose facility, with a large open meeting room, with multiple windows and doors that open to the porches.  Behind the large meeting room you have a commercial kitchen that opens to the meeting hall by three roll up doors and wood countertops almost the entire length of the kitchen.  The kitchen is equipped with commercial exhaust system over commercial gas stove and grill; it is a very workable kitchen that can feed a lot of people.  Behind kitchen is your dry storage and air handles for the three large air conditioning units.  On the other end of the building you have a media center, two offices, a nice vestibule and full bathroom.  There are two restrooms, ladies room and men’s room that are accessible from the outside porch.  Each one has three stalls, 3 in counter sinks, and another full bathroom that is handicapped equipped.  Facility has been well maintained.
