The Property

This exceptional, very private deluxe horse farm encloses a 100+ acre watershed at the end of a state maintained road, 50 minutes north of Asheville in lovely Western North Carolina mountains, with elevations between 2500-3500 feet. The property is partly cleared, sloping, rolling and level, with 35 acres of groomed pasture that encompass an equestrian facility, and 2 1/2 miles of bridle paths and hay meadows. Horse pastures are enclosed by electro-braid fences, the safest fencing for horses. Some wooden fences define holding pens. Several headwater springs feed a year-round stream, and a pond with an attractive spillway at the entry of the facilities. Heirloom apple trees, rock walls, and paths, native landscaping and multi-layered mountain views add to the natural mystique of this deluxe mountain retreat.

The Barn & Facilities

A 70x40 horse barn covered by Hardy plank siding encloses seven 14x14 stalls with custom sliding doors and 2 inch thick solid wood stall walls. Stalls have shredded recycled tire batting with an impermeable membrane to reduce bedding and increase circulation in horses legs. The 12 foot aisle has two ceiling fans and is paved with interlocking recycled rubber mats. The lower level also includes a tack room, kitchenette, and an adjacent office with pine paneling, custom cabinets, wireless and landline. The upper level hayloft houses the farm's own hay with a drive up entrance. There is also a bonus/storage room, fully insulated with working sink. Water for the barn and pastures is spring fed.

A large Coverall arena allows year round training and riding. A meeting/clubhouse, 24x36, incorporates a generous open space, 2 restrooms, galley kitchen, and roomy covered porch and 2 stone patios. Six pastures are provided their own flowing water. Places of meditation include: deck with a long mountain view, 3 sitting areas with rock walls, landscaped forest garden area, fire pit surrounded by large rock boulders, spiral boxwood garden, and sitting area next to a spring.

For acreage maintenance a 60x28 machine shed stores equipment and includes a tool room.
