The Farm: Within two hours of Tyron International Equestrian Center home to the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, this beautiful mountain top equestrian estate provides privacy and serenity. Riding trials surround the area. The views from 3900 feet elevation are spectacular and the air is always fresh and invigorating.
This well-established horse operation offers everything the discerning equestrian needs to run a first-class operation. The estate showcases 30 acres of manicured pasture that is not only scenic but meticulously designed for the practicalities of keeping horses and managing all their needs. The pastures are fenced and crossed-fenced offering six huge paddocks and several smaller lots. The fencing is mettle fixed-knot. Fence posts are pressure-treated round-wood set at maximum 10 feet intervals.
All the numerous gates are round-pole- steel set at all the right places for convenient access to and from every paddock. There are two well-constructed three-sided run-in- sheds. Four mountain springs provide for a continuous fresh water supply to every paddock. The fresh-water pond is stocked with bluegill and small mountain bass. For pond maintenance grass carp are also stocked.
The Barn: The 38X60 fire-resistant metal barn houses four 12X12 stalls with floor mats and hay bins. The spacious aisle is 14-feet wide. There are roll-up metal doors at both ends as well as round-pole gates so that the doors can remain open during the summer season while keeping horses safe and the barn secure.
There is a wash bay with access to heated water. There is pedestrian access at both ends of the barn. On the back side of the barn there are three run-in stalls protected with a shed roof. There is a tack/feed room and an office. Water service for the barn comes from a 400-feet- deep well with 6 gallon-per minute capacity. The bath is finished out with double wash basins, shower, toilet and clothes closet.
The Home:The log custom home, which sets at the top of the property, provides over 3840 square feet of luxurious living. Life in this home centers around the stone fireplace in the spacious great room featuring post and beam cathedral ceiling. There are four bedrooms and three full baths. Hardwood and ceramic tile flooring. The double car garage is attached. There are two full kitchens, both with granite counter tops, island, and hardwood cabinetry.
The lower level could serve as a mother-in- law suite with spacious living room offering floor to ceiling windows and walkout egress to huge decks. The lower level is complete with bedroom, full bath, kitchen and its own stone fireplace. Every inch of the home is meticulously designed with esthetics to please while never losing sight of the importance of warmth and comfort. It is truly a home to always come home to. The owner is in the nursery business and the landscaping is a testament to their professional horticulture expertise and landscape design capabilities.
