Each week we bring you an incredible horse property that’s currently on the market and ready for your biggest dreams to come true. This week: the house and the barn have matching chandeliers. MATCHING. CHANDELIERS.
Have you ever seen one of those stunning, uber-modern black and white New York City penthouses in the movies and thought, “Oh man. I wish I had something just like this, only instead of a penthouse I wish it were on 4 acres, and instead of New York City it was in the horse capital of the world where it never snows, and instead of it being a house, it’s a barn.”? If so, then you’re probably about to lose your mind.
This is a real thing. An incredible, pristine, actual thing that can be yours for the rock bottom sum of $11.9 million. In case you were wondering how the mortgage breaks down on that, assuming you did a fixed 30-year loan with 20% down and 4.5% interest, this can all be yours for $48,236. 44 a month. But hey, think of all the money you’d save on de-icers and electricity! You’d probably break even, really.
It’s nearly impossible to separate the people space from the horse space, because the arena literally sits exquisitely between them. Flawless footing sits mere inches from the “owner’s lounge” (yes, it’s not exactly a house, more like an entertaining space. But we’ll get to that) and is large enough to accommodate any discipline.
But we are just getting started. Things really start to heat up in…
Modern woodwork with three shades of timber and an emphasis on natural light are the key features of the barn interior. Other details include beautiful side and overhead lighting, cobblestone footing, artful fans in every box, and classical ironwork on the stall fronts. In other words, I’d happily bunk in any of these stalls for the rest of my life, amen.
Oh but we’re not done with the barn, yet. Wait until you see:
The Tack Room
If this is your first foray into the minimalist tack room, don’t feel bad, it was mine, too. “Where do I put that giant moldy box of cracked nylon halters in a place like this?” You throw them away, Gina. You throw them away.
The barn also houses the only living/bedroom spaces on the property, which is referred to as “the groom’s apartment”, or what I’d like to call THE HORSE GROOMER’S LOTTERY. There are four bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms, and this kitchen:
But it’s impossible to love everything about this listing so far and not completely love:
The ‘Owners Lounge’
As we alluded to earlier, the main house isn’t so much a house as an entertaining space. It has an industrial kitchen, a significant viewing area, bathrooms, and a grand fireplace. Think of it as the best place you could ever imagine enjoying a dressage clinic or stallion inspection.
This brand new property also features 4 wash stalls, a laundry room, feed room, and six turnout paddocks. As the listing says, “Absolutely no expense was spared in the creation of this masterpiece.” We absolutely agree.
