A 215-ft. deep-water well provides potable water to the property with a 10/GPM pump. On-site utilities include underground electric, high-speed fiber optic internet and security cameras. Improvements include four structures built by the craftsmen of Morton Buildings to the highest standards and 150 MPH wind capacity: 1) 5,400 sq. ft. equipment barn with four electric overhead doors and a single drive-through bay to accommodate a motorcoach; 2) 1,296 sq. ft. unfinished gathering house attached to the equipment barn with 11-ft. ceilings, Pella hurricane windows, and accommodations in the adjoining barn for a walk-in refrigerator/freezer and butler’s pantry; 3) 2,160 sq. ft. horse barn with six stalls, tack room and office; 4) 1,440 sq. ft. open pole barn for outdoor activities; and 5) Small studio efficiency with full bathroom and catering prep area featuring commercial-grade equipment.

While Gaddy Up Ranch has end of the road privacy, it also has easy access. Private Gaddy Up Ranch Road meanders through the property featuring a 90,000-lbs.+ capacity culvert bridge over a tributary to Upper Myakka Lake. The road and bridge provide heavy-equipment access to the interior of the ranch. Nearby “neighbors” include Myakka River State Park, Crowley Museum and Nature Center, Florida Native Plants Nursery, Homestead Hydroponic Farm, Hidden River Fly-In Community, and the planned Terra Nova Equestrian Development.
