What Can $175 Million Buy?

Welcome to HN Cribs… where there are fewer rap stars and more horse flies. Amanda Ronan leads us on a tour of some of the country’s most fabulous equestrian properties.

From Amanda:

We’ll start off modestly, with Supreme-Auctions.com $12 million Georgia estate auctioned last fall. The 64-acre property contains the main home, a guesthouse, fully climate-controlled barn to ward off those sweltering southern temperatures, full veterinarian office and farrier stall, equestrian arena with dust-free polymer footing, manicured grounds with a zero-entry pool, and plenty’o rolling green hills. Not too shabby.

The house… which should be known as “Jigsaw Style Architecture.”

The covered arena.

Hmmm… the aisleway is a bit narrow…

Perhaps you want less humidity and more Malibu breeze while you ride? Well, Trulia.com lists the Calabasas Park Estates Ranch for $19,500,000. The 190-acre equestrian estate has a 7,500-square foot house, a duck pond, a 16-stall barn, a riding ring, miles of riding trails, two guesthouses, a tennis court, and fruit orchards. They had me at “duck pond.”

But you probably want your polo field closer to the beach? Well then check out the Villa Sevillano listed on MSN Real Estate. The 22-acre estate also contains a 10,000 square foot house, swimming pool and multiple barns. You can have it all for $22.5 million.

How ’bout that?

I know what you’re thinking… you just can’t break away from the circuits on the east coast? Well, located in the Hudson Valley area of New York, Supreme-Auctions.com lists Sky Blue Farm for a modest $20 million. For that price you can have 145 acres, a 9,000-square foot home with indoor basketball court, an 18-stall horse barn, an indoor and two outdoor riding rings, a guest house, a carriage barn with staff quarters, a caretaker’s house, a sporting field, a spa, a movie theater, a lighted ice skating rink and a motocross track. By the way, the skating rink does come with its own zamboni. I mean this one is action-packed. Seems like a steal.

“Coolest Interior Decorating Ever Award” goes to Supreme-Auctions.com’s Maryland Tudor Farms listed at $30 million. The 6500-acre estate features a 14,000-square foot main lodge, two guest houses, a “quaint” farmhouse, an 18 stall barn, indoor riding ring, kennels, a picking house and even an indoor tennis court. I’m not sure what a picking house is but I feel like I need one now.

Business Insider lists this New Jersey horse property at $34,999,000 because $35 million would have just been pretentious. The 127-acre property has a 20,000 square foot house, a nine stall barn and surrounding green fields of majesty. The house alone covers almost a ½ acre. NASA noted they could see it from space. No, they didn’t… I just made that up… but they probably could.

It looks lovely although, to be honest, at that price I kind of expected the barn to have a finished ceiling?

Finally, the piece de resistance. Supreme-Auctions.com lists the highest priced ranch in America, Jackson Land and Cattle Ranch, clocking in at $175 million dollars. This 450-acre property boasts a 52-stall equestrian facility, indoor and outdoor riding rings, two homes, plus another 1,300 acres of adjoining ranchland, 360 degree views of the Teton Mountains, trails for hunting and even a few ponds stocked with trout. The pictures, I have to admit, are pretty dang fantabulous.

How about a little trail riding?

And the “Equestrian Facility Kitchen” where they grow their horses’ grass.  Because grass grown outside is just uncivilized… it’s like drinking from the tap.
