Think “Florida master-planned horse community” and images of seaside villages, golf towns, and family-friendly vacation destinations come to mind. Planned communities have sprouted up around the state to meet the market’s demand for lifestyle. Walton County, a development hot spot, has followed suit with its plethora of choices of golf communities, beachside mini-towns, family-oriented mega subdivisions and second-home communities. But a new planned community that offers home and property buyers a unique option is under way. Emerald Glenn, a Horse Community at Black Creek.
           

The 1,734-acre master-planned community is designed for horse lovers. It is located near Freeport between County Road 3280 and Black Creek. The design, created by the world-renowned architect and town planning firm Looney Ricks Kiss, includes 740 residential units, a multi-million dollar equestrian center with a 47-stall barn, pastures and turnouts, arenas and seating areas, storage, and nearly 20 miles of trails.

Plans also include a river lodge with a riverfront promenade and walking pier, a 50-unit dry dock and boat storage facility, and canoe and boat launches. Emerald Glenn’s master plan includes a total of 435 acres of preservation land.

The mix of residential lots includes 240 four- to six acre equestrian estates; 387 single-family home sites; and 113 one-acre riverfront lots.

Although architectural guidelines are still in planning, an architectural review board will be established to ensure homes are designed with a Southern-style hybrid that emphasizes porches, rail fences, and other Southern flairs. Landscape guidelines stress conservation; lots are wooded, and landscape buffers must be preserved.

Why horses?
We wanted to embrace the efforts of Nokuse and come up with something compatible,” said Lloyd Blue, a local attorney and developer who is coordinating the project. “The equestrian lifestyle lends itself to open spaces and large tracts of conservation and preservation land. This lifestyle also lends itself to extremely low densities. The parcel is zoned for 7,000 units; our plan has 740. And, it’s an alternative that is not readily available in the Panhandle.”
