Bellechase is a quietly elegant and exclusive community of Estate Homes in Ocala, Florida. Bellechase was developed for those individuals who love and choose to be surrounded by natural beauty. Their lifestyles are characterized by an elegance that is unpretentious; privacy that is unobtrusively protected and serenity that is disturbed by nothing more than breezes gently rustling the leaves of the oak trees surrounding their homes. These Estate Homes will appear to have been dropped into wooded sites on the 600 rolling acres that comprise Bellechase. Lots are 1/2 and 1 acre sites, the homes are expansive, accommodating and welcoming. They are constructed of natural materials – wood and stone – to complement surroundings that have been left natural. Their quality is evident in the exacting details of old world craftsmanship – subtle differences that speak discreetly about the values of Bellechase residents. The community is designed around a linear park system with a heightened respect for, and sensitivity to the land, native vegetation and trees. Roads have been artfully routed around stands of trees, their leafy canopies providing only glimpses of these homes through the trees and natural landscape. The first clue to the natural beauty of Bellechase is a stone gatehouse. Beyond the gatehouse, Bellechase is a private would within a world. Yet, the community enjoys the convenience of city utilities and is close to all the conveniences of downtown Ocala.
