It is obvious the minute you pull through the gated front entrance and past the horses grazing in the green pastures, this estate farm was designed and is maintained by a knowledgeable equestrian. It is almost impossible to find fifteen acres in the heart of desirable Lake Norman area and surrounded by multi- million dollar estates, especially when you consider the breadth of this farm. Six vinyl fenced pastures, two with run-in shelters, allow for rotation and separation as needed. An elegant and immaculate 10 stall barn is ideal for boarding or for a private facility. The large tiled tack room is set up as a lounge and laundry area and offers a half bath. The 12 x 12 stalls have stall mats, fans, as well as, automatic Nelson waterers and feeders. The sliding inside doors and outside Dutch doors allow the horses freedom to hang their heads outside without risking unwanted nips and biting in the aisle way. The feed room utility sink provides a place to clean tack or water down feed if needed. In addition to the indoor wash stall, there is an outside wash stall as well. Breezeways and large sliding doors create nice breezes and circulation in the warm summer months. Store up to 250 bales of hay at the end of the barn in the designated storage area. Built in 2007, the 100 x 225 foot covered arena ensures the owner that horses can get exercised daily if desired. The combination of rubber, sand and blue stone footings, along with a sprinkler system allows those same horses to be exercised safely. The mirrors, dressage fencing, sound system and slanted sides will accommodate most any discipline. Warm your horses up or train young horses in the round pen. An apartment above the barn and attached by a breezeway to the home, is perfect for a caretaker, groom, in-law or working studentWhile easy to get to I-77, Birkdale Village and I-85, the home is very private nestled under mature hardwoods and set back off the road. Enjoy watching the equestrian activities from either the wrap around covered front porch or from one of two screened in back porches. The three bedroom home has a formal living room just waiting for your baby grand, an office that overlooks the back pastures, dining room and breakfast area on the main floor. The kitchen opens to the breakfast area and Great Room. A floor to ceiling stone fireplace and stone surround entertainment center. There are custom cabinets in the kitchen and, as well as, granite counter tops and a center island. Large guest bedrooms, a master suite and bonus room are all located on the second floor. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub that takes advantage of the views, a separate tiled shower and two walk-in closets. You wont only be envied by your equestrian friends, but also by your professional acquaintances with such an elegant home and property.
