Undoubtedly one of the nicest show quality facilities around. A long paved driveway passing spacious pastures leads to a stately stable complex adorned by flowering gardens. The 13 year old main stable offers large well appointed matted stalls and also houses a handsomely windowed 2322 indoor riding arena with sand and rubber footing. A kickboard which cleverly conceals hydrants in corners completes this area. The tongue and grooved heated tack room and a restroom will keep clients comfortable. There's also a handy feed room with built-in cabinetry. Large hay loft can also hold additional tack. The buildings are well ventilated with windows that open and cupolas.
The 2322 outdoor arena with sand footing is located conveniently near the barn. A row of 4 additional matted stalls measuring 10x10 and an attached storage area and workshop to keep equipment out of the elements are located in the rear of the stable. All 16 stalls have insulated water buckets.
Beautiful and predominately level pastures have wood and no climb fencing & solar electric . Six pastures & 1 paddock in total: (2) 3-4 acre pastures, (2) 2 acre+/- pastures, and (2) 1+/- acre pasture with run-in sheds, Three of the largest pastures are equipped with Bar-Bar-A automatic waterers. One example of the smart planning that went into this facility are the 10 frost free hydrants 2 of which are in the indoor ring, 2 in main barn, 2 outside of barn/indoor and the other 4 are by pasture gates. Other notable features include hot/cold water wash stall and ceiling fans in aisles. Water filter & UV light for house and barn water. Separate well & electric for barn. Barn also has holding tank for restroom. 4 acres of woods contain a few trails for hacking. This exceptional facility earns its keep by rewarding the current owners with a monthly income after all expenses have been paid.
