Our Featured Real Estate Listing this week is a Greenwich back-country property easily capable of meeting and exceeding your most ambitious 'Equestrian Lifestyle' dreams!
So much more than just a home with some additional horse amenities, this distinctive award-winning equestrian estate (located at 429 Taconic Road) is the single all-encompassing horse farm in Greenwich.
It all starts in the form of a regal and expansive home - designed by internationally recognized architect Paul Marchese - situated as the centerpiece of the approximately 13 acre estate. No need for concern over any present or future neighbors - this property borders conservation land that can never be disturbed.
The exterior is an homage to the shingle-style cottages of Greenwich, Newport, and other Gold Coast communities by the renowned nineteenth-century architect Stanford White - only, in this case, on a very grand scale.
Characterized by a 'relaxed broken symmetry' - this world class example of architecture with approximately 10,000 square feet of luxury living is accented by numerous open verandas, towers, and projecting bays.
The landscaping surrounding the home is inclusive of an expansive entertaining veranda with patios, stone terracing and an inviting pool area.
Originally built in 2012 (when it won the HOBI award for “Best Custom Home in Connecticut; 10,000–12,000 Square Feet”), this house features 5 bedrooms and 7 full PLUS 2 half baths.
Climb to the top of the towers in the gambrel-shaped roofs and take in vast long distance views peering across two states! But you needn't be at the high points of this home to enjoy the scenery! This house was thoughtfully designed with historical references AND to maximize views from every angle. There are breathtaking sunsets from the western views, which can be seen from almost every single room.
The main level master suite is bright with natural light AND 'in the true spirit of a world-class equestrian estate' you'll experience the unique pleasure of sweeping vistas and the sight of horses grazing in the paddocks - right from your bed!
Strict attention to detail during the design and construction phases of this home are evident throughout. From the open floor plan, to the spiral staircase, throughout the gourmet kitchen, and in the innovative technology, including spray foam insulation and a geothermal heating and cooling system.
There's also a private library, workout studio, sauna, wine cellar, studio, and four-car heated garage. Trust us, if this home doesn't have it - you probably don't need it :-)
Looking to live a life among horses?
This unparalleled equestrian estate ALSO boasts eight enclosed paddocks with a custom run-in shed, enclosed horse trailer parking, and a riding trail encircling the property.
Add to that: an eight stall barn with a tack room, wash stall, feed room, half bath, inlaid rubber flooring, abundant storage areas and a full hayloft.
Ready To Ride? Feel free to choose between the 140’ x 200’ outdoor ring OR the 80’ x 140’ indoor ring for when the weather isn’t optimal, both of which have custom footing.
Hired Help? There's also a 2 bedroom groom/trainer apartment to make sure that there is always somebody available to look after the horses, even if you’re not.
