Prestigious Palmer Ranch real estate is comprised of a large master planned community spanning roughly 10,000 acres—the largest in Sarasota. Palmer Ranch itself is made up of over 25 neighborhoods, along with various commercial areas for homeowners to conveniently visit. Palmer Ranch was part of 80,000 acres of land originally purchased by Bertha Honore Palmer in 1910. Bertha Palmer was the wife of Chicago department store tycoon Potter Palmer and she began the trend of establishing winter homes in Florida. Bertha Palmer devoted much of her acreage to cattle ranching and citrus groves. In 1973 Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. purchased Palmer Ranch which was then 11,000 acres, eventually developing the area.
