Property description

Nestled above the banks of the Watauga River in historic Valle Crucis is where you’ll find the picturesque River Run Farm, a trophy ±28.98 acre riverfront equestrian estate set in a picture postcard setting where the mountains rise up thru the early morning mist like islands. This former thoroughbred farm enjoys a rich heritage and was once home to Behrens (sired by the 1981 Kentucky Derby & Preakness Stakes winner, Pleasant Colony), and Will's Way, the winner of the ’96 Traverse Stakes (G1).

Idyllic and rare, this extraordinary riverfront equestrian estate includes a custom cedar and stone mountain-style lodge with post and beam construction on three levels with a detached 2-car garage. The centerpiece of the farm is the custom center aisle main barn with 14 stalls, feed & tack rooms, wash bay & laundry facilities, staff powder room, farm managers office, hayloft and 1 bedroom | 1 bathroom apartment. The property also includes an auxiliary 6 stall barn, a multi-purpose equipment storage|work shop, plus an additional outbuilding for storage. The manicured grounds feature extensive landscaping, 9 fenced paddocks ranging in size from ± 0.50 acres to ± 3.50 acres with automatic waterers, ± 11,000 lineal feet of 4-rail wooden fencing, a live stream, stocked pond, open air riding arena, and 3/8-mile turf track. The property enjoys +/-0.46 miles of frontage on the Watauga River, has no restrictions and can be subdivided with approvals.

The farm is being offered with furnishings and equipment less exceptions - to be provided upon request.
