Sarasota’s Best Gated Community
For New Estate Homes

The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch is the only gated master planned community in Sarasota, Florida designed exclusively for true estate homes. Behind the impressive gated entry are 270 acres of beautiful pines, stately oaks, recreational lakes and wetland preserves. It’s an environmental gem that attracts egrets, osprey, wild turkeys and deer. Discerning homeowners in search of a gated community with acreage for building a true estate are also naturally attracted to The Forest.

The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch Sarasota Gated CommunityThis Sarasota gated community, on the historic Hi Hat Ranch, features large three to five acre homesites in a natural Florida setting. It is gracious country living quietly removed from the ordinary gated Sarasota “estate” community where large houses sit just a few feet apart. At The Forest your neighbors are close enough to be friends you see socially—-rather than daily through neighboring windows.

The Forest is inspired by the Turner family’s decades of land stewardship as owners of this historic Sarasota ranch. As developers, they are dedicated to preserving the natural environment and creating a Sarasota gated community of distinction. Low impact development guidelines protect the integrity of the land, providing for expansive preservation areas and natural filtration of water run-off.

The cookie-cutter approach does not get past the main entry gate at The Forest. Sarasota’s best custom builders work closely with the developer and homeowners to meet design standards that offer flexibility while ensuring a unique street scene in this gated community. Impressive custom homes become tasteful estates rather than ostentatious “McMansions.” Each builder offers a variety of standard floor plans and featured homes. They can also provide full design/build services giving new home buyers in The Forest the widest opportunity to find the perfect plan to meet their particular taste, needs and lifestyle.

Each grand estate home celebrates and preserves The Forest’s natural beauty while providing a very civilized lifestyle. Visit The Forest and discover how different a true estate style neighborhood looks behind the gates in Sarasota’s only large-lot gated master planned community.

There is only one clear choice for those in search of a Sarasota gated community where real estate homes are possible. It's The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch.
