My fully renovated $9.75 million old Kentucky home, that is.
For almost every horse crazy kid, the first, obvious place you dream of building your future farm – filled to the brim with Thoroughbreds, Friesians, Arabians, Gypsy Vanners, and a clone of Man O’War, naturally – is Kentucky. Duh. On one of those quiet, tree-lined roads with white rails for miles – halfway between Claiborne Farms and the Kentucky Horse Park sounds just about right.
This is basically that, times five. Because there are literally five barns on site, and any one of them would make a your inner horse girl a very happy pony collector, indeed.
The Equine Facilities:
Currently a breeding facility known as Rosemont Farm, the 462-acre estate not only features the five unique, state-of-the-art barn totaling 74 stalls, there are also five auxiliary working residences and offices, multiple spaces for feed and equipment and a eurocruiser. There are dozens of pristine turnout fields with sheds, trees, and double fencing, and all of it sits on one of the most famous streets in the world: Paris Pike in Lexington.
The main home is nothing to sniff at, either. Originally built in 1831, it was expanded over the years and painstakingly restored to “my old Kentucky home” glory in the 1980s, and the final product is a historic gem. That includes original ash floors, a wood-paneled den to make the British foxhunters jealous, and retracting shutters, and all sorts of other luxury bells and whistles.
You can get more information at the original listing. The current price of this horse country stunner is $9.75 million.
