The vision of respected Southwest Florida custom homebuilder Daniel Wayne Homes, Horse Creek is a gated community reminiscent of the real “old Florida,” with large homesites set in a picturesque, natural environment.
Located along the meandering banks of the Orange River in the middle of the Buckingham Rural Preserve, the 220-acre community features 100 acres of nature preserves and lakes, with homes offering either lake, river or preserve views.
