Pine Creek Sporting Club is an exclusive wing and clay shooting club that spans over 2,400 acres of pristine Florida ranch land. The Club consists of residential offerings ranging from 40-acre ranches to idyllic cabins that perfectly complement the natural beauty surrounding them.

Other features of this ranch, developed by architect Roger Janssen in collaboration with interior designer Giana Allen and builder John Wilcox, include concrete block construction with cypress siding, solid wood interior doors, wide porches, beamed ceilings, hand crafted natural stone showers and three interior stone-clad glass fireplaces. The interiors have a rustic charm, mixed with a high level of comfort. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Pine Creek Sporting Club]
