The Tack House at The Trilogy Ocala Resort
About 10 years ago, a new subdivision was to be built in northwest Ocala called Ashley Farms. As I recall, the land had been a used as a horse farm. But about that time the housing market collapsed and only a few homes were ever built.
Then a couple of years ago, along came the Shea Company which took over the land and renamed it Trilogy at Ocala Preserve, and thus began a new, beautiful 55 + community which ultimately will consist of about 1500 homes. Because this is where we live, we've posted a number of photos of Trilogy and of the large Oak House which houses many of the amenities Trilogy offers, including a fine restaurant.
But there's another structure near the main entrance known as the Tack House, which also includes a variety of amenities and the sales offices. The name, Tack House, relates to the area's many horse farms. A tack house or room contains many of the items used in raising horses, such as saddles and bridles, etc. There are no horses here, and no saddles or bridles but there is a small cafe, rooms for games and exercise, televisions and an outside eating area which you see pictured above.
As you know, on occasion I enjoy getting a little "artsy," and in this instance, I'm showing you the side entrance to the Tack House, and the outside eating area. The golf carts that are used to show prospective home buyers around the property are located in a covered walkway.
At first, I thought this treatment of the photo was too much, but the more I looked at it the better I liked it, so here it is. The Tack House, at Trilogy at Ocala Preserve as no one has seen it before!
