Let’s face it: Horse properties don’t always come with ALL the amenities. For example, some properties in Florida are absolutely gorgeous, and the weather is generally warm all year round, so there’s no indoor arena — typically, they have large outdoor arenas and perhaps a grass jumping field. What do people do, though, when it’s pouring rain? Either ride in the mucky outdoor or skip riding entirely because the grass is soaked and slippery. Elsewhere, maybe there’s beautiful tack rooms but only two turnout paddocks for say, six stalls. How do you manage that? Waste time rotating horses for only a few short hours each?
We’ll let you in on a secret…this property in Greenwich, Connecticut does have it all. In fact…it has the only indoor arena in Greenwich! We swear, you’ll have people calling you up to use the ring in the chilly days (hmm, perhaps you could charge a little ring fee?) Gallop on and take a look.
429 Taconic Road, Greenwich, CT (Steeple Chase Farm)
The property sits on 13 acres and is entirely deer-fenced.
The main house has 5 bedrooms — and who can resist this immaculate pool?
Wine lovers rejoice…even if you’re not a horsey person, have no fear! Enjoy your collection here while your other half gets his or her riding done.
Take a walk outside over to the barn…
The barn itself has 8 stalls, with 8 turnout paddocks. There is a separate 6-car garage/equipment building, as well as two-bedroom staff housing.
Note the run-in sheds on two of the paddocks — great for horses who need some extra space to retreat to, or the ones that are left out overnight.
Can we say gorgeous? The interior of the barn is simple and practical — we’re sure Marie Kondo would be pleased.
The infamous indoor arena is 80′ x 140′ with custom footing.
Of course, the outdoor arena also has custom footing and is 140′ x 200′.
