This custom barn home offers equestrians a turnkey operation plus privacy in an amazing location.
Once a boarding facility and now a private classical training retreat, this gated 18-acre property features over 3200 square feet of “barndominium” style living space. The architecturally creative design includes an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, stainless appliances and custom cabinetry. The kitchen, living area, and master suite overlook the indoor riding arena.
Two reclaimed oak barnwood staircases rise to the master suite, which features an en-suite bath with drop in tub and glass tile shower, and a handcrafted oak vanity with vessel bowls. The upstairs closet features sliding barn doors which are also custom-made of reclaimed oak and cedar from a local, circa 1800’s farm house. Architectural tile and wood details echo inspiration from rustic Andalusia. Custom window treatments cover all windows.
Walk directly from the “barndo” living space into the stable to tend to horses and ride in the indoor arena, crafted with limesand base and topped with sand. This working area features fine horse keeping amenities: two wash stalls with hot and cold water, a tack and feed room, and a lounge that can double as an overnight space for clients. Commercial-grade LED lighting illuminates the 80 x 120 arena. Eight 12 x 24 stalls feature mats over a limesand base, with handmade Lucas Equine stall fronts. Each steel+ glass stall window is handcrafted by Pennsylvania Amish tradesmen.
Exit the barn to school in the 100 x 175 lighted outdoor arena, also constructed with limesand base topped with sand, bounded by three-board fencing with entry/exit gate. This scenic work area is surrounded by majestic trees, with sounds of the creek running peacefully past the facility.
Four-board fencing surrounds the living and working areas, as well as the pastures. The ten-acre hayfield adjoins at the back of the property. The zoning is Agricultural, with room to custom build or develop the gently rolling land overlooking woods and protected wetlands. This is a special haven for those who love the country, and require the convenience of city amenities.
