For the bargain price of just under $30 million, you can be the proud owner of this equestrian paradise in Virginia.
Sometimes you just want a place to relax that can house you, your horses, 20 of your closest friends and their horses. Sound like your dream home? Then, boy, have we got a deal for you! This historic plantation home, known as “North Wales,” in Warrenton, Virginia is set on 1,471 acres and boasts 22 bedrooms and 16 baths.
North Wales features a stone manor home (circa 1776), a two-story Georgian Revival-style stone carriage house, extensive farm and equestrian improvements, a guesthouse, additional residences and a shooting preserve. The inside of the manor has intricate detail that is sure to impress even your most critical of friends and updated amenities that still manage to preserve the integrity of the estate.
Oh, did we forget to mention it has a wine cellar and bar, a billiards room, a library, a sun room, a tennis court, a pool and more? (They had me at wine cellar — too bad no pictures of the cellar itself are available).
According to the website, the estate last sold for $21 million in 2015 and was previously owned by some famous names including automotive magnate Walter P. Chrysler, Jr. and former Goldman Sachs partner David B. Ford.
Now, if you weren’t drooling already, here’s where this estate truly becomes a fantasy farm. Take a look at these equestrian facilities (forget the house — I would be happy living in the barn!):
To be fair, it doesn’t look like a horse has seen those pastures in a while, but we’re sure a Horse Nation reader or two could fix that without a problem.
