Southwest Ranches, is it the new Hollywood?

Who would have thought that South Florida would become the new hot spot for Hollywood stars? Certainly not this little sleepy horse town, called Southwest Ranches. Recently, it has become the new place to be for stars like The Rock, or Rappers Rick Ross, and Trippie Redd. Celebrities such as Gisele Bündchen, the supermodel and equestrian enthusiast, Daunte Culpepper, the NFL’s distinguished quarterback, Udonis Haslem, the NBA’s Miami Heat luminary, and T.J. Duke, NASCAR’s emerging talent, are among the few who have moved out to the “country” and started calling Southwest Ranches home.

Despite its rural character, Southwest Ranches is now attracting ultra-high-net-worth individuals. Centrally located, it’s close to three major international airports and a short drive to either Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Some are calling it the Hamptons lifestyle in a little-known location. And don’t expect it to get overrun with celebrities; it will always have that small-town feel thanks to strict preservation rules that prevent future overdevelopment. The town’s motto is ‘The pavement stops here!’ There are no sidewalks or stores here, just lots and lots of land, and this privacy is what many come here for.

According to their website, The Town of Southwest Ranches, located in Southwest Broward County, is approximately 13 square miles and home to nearly 8,000 residents. The town is a rural environment, filled with grazing animals, nurseries, farms, exquisite and unique scenery, and an abundance of wildlife.

The zoning in the town is almost entirely rural residential and agricultural, which requires that lots must be a minimum of one to two acres. Southwest Ranches also has a growing amount of zoning for recreation and open space, which preserves land for residents’ enjoyment. The newest zoning district is for community facilities that allow uses that serve the community, such as places of worship.

The town of Southwest Ranches was formed to stop encroaching development, and all the Town Council Members have pledged to “preserve our rural lifestyle,” which includes donkeys braying, roosters crowing, and no sidewalks.

So if you want to hobnob with famous neighbors, or just want that country feel, call us today, as we are the Southwest Ranches specialists and can find you the home of your dreams.
