Turnkey horse property - bring your horses home today! These beautiful 6+ acres are tucked between farm fields for lots of privacy, and are nicely landscaped for your enjoyment. Fish for bass, bluegill and crappie in the 1/3 acre pond - the pair of heavy duty aerator fountains will keep them healthy during the hot summer days. Ride your horse on the fully fenced level acreage, or convert part of the pasture to a riding arena. Your horses will love grazing the pasture mix of timothy, fescue and clover, and the 4 separate fenced areas allow for rotational grazing to keep both horses and pasture healthy.

This spacious ranch style home opens to a grand main living area with vaulted ceilings and beautiful chandeliers. Spend your evenings in the central great room anchored by a floor to ceiling ornate brick fireplace. There is still plenty of room for seating and to set up a giant flat screen TV connected to the hardwired surround sound system. Any cook would love the updated gourmet kitchen with professional Wolf and Jennair stainless steel appliances, lots of Cambria quartz countertop space, and beautifully trimmed glazed maple cabinets with custom pullouts. A generous dining space is tucked into a nook adjacent to the kitchen, and the room is bright and cheerful with tall windows and sliding door access to the patio and yard.
The home's 3 large bedrooms each have their own full bath. The spa-like master bath has been remodeled, with rich espresso maple vanity cabinets, granite countertop, colorful glass vessel sinks and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. After a long day of trail riding you can relax in the Jacuzzi jetted tub with in-line heater and colored lights. Both the Jacuzzi and the separate frameless glass shower include hand showers and are trimmed out in designer stone-look porcelain and glass tile. The walk-in closet is tucked behind a pocket door and has solid surface built-ins for maximum storage and convenience.
Plan to do lots of entertaining in the finished lower level! The deluxe wet bar has tons of counter space and cabinet storage, an 18" stainless steel dishwasher, a Kohler stainless steel bar sink and faucet, a small commercial icemaker, a countertop microwave/convection oven and a stainless steel French door refrigerator. The adjacent pool table area is set up for an HD flat screen TV, has a sound bar and wireless subwoofer, and has room for comfy chairs - Man Cave! But there is even more to this open floorplan - ANOTHER ornate full brick fireplace, room for more seating, and large TV/Video game family room.
There is also an extra large, high ceilinged utility room with plenty of lighting and electrical outlets - a perfect place for a home workshop, craft room, or workout area.
A paved drive takes you to the high & dry 36'x60' tall free-span Cleary building which has parking outside for your trailer and truck. Four 10'x12' modular horse stalls are ready to hold your horses! Each has gossip and feeder doors for convenience, and your horses can enjoy the ventilation provided by the full length grilles between stalls. Rubber mats over a crushed stone base provide comfortable easy to clean footing, and nearby electrical outlets allow for lighting, stall fans in summer and bucket heaters in winter.
Each stall opens into the crushed stone turnout paddock through double Dutch doors, and an additional larger all weather paddock is nearby. Most of the barn has concrete flooring, and the concrete center aisle has a brushed no-slip finish. There is plenty of room for hay storage - up to 400 bales! Park your tractor, ATV, side by side, dirt bikes, boat, etc. in the front of the barn, and there is an area set up with racks for saddles and tack. The barn has city water and 100 amp service, and has a circuit on the whole house generator panel - no power outages!
No horses? That's ok! The stalls can be easily removed which allows you to convert the barn to an additional garage or workshop. There would be plenty of room to store and work on your collector cars or rat rods.
