Desoto Acres Homes for Sale
Desoto Acres is located in an area that statistically only registers about twenty living units per square mile. This is a rarity in Florida. Each property is ultra-private and surrounded by thick natural barriers, which keep out sound and influence from nearby cities with higher concentrations of human activity. Compared to beach and resort properties, Desoto Acres is less affluent, but much more peaceful and inviting.
The majority of homes in the area are single-level stucco or brick cottages and carefully constructed “La Vida” old world private abodes. There are five and six bedroom late model homes. The region is hilly, so long graded driveways, rolling pastures, and wooded areas are common. This area is the most aged, yet well-preserved part of the county. Some of the homes were built in the mid-twentieth century to reflect the popularity of that era’s Florida land boom.
The major draw of Desoto Acres was a guarantee of properties measuring between two and ten acres suitable for raising animals and escaping the city life. Amazingly, Desoto Acres still maintains the same appeal. “Serenity” is the word most often used by people who live there to describe the area.
