Property description

Escape to the serenity of Wild Wonderful West Virginia! Over 26 acres by the Potomac River, Merry Mount Riding and Training Center was established in 1994 and operated as a lesson facility with summer camp and horse training for 24 years. The facility could be re-opened or it can be enjoyed as a private residence. There are endless options and room for expansion. The Merry Mount property includes a 3 bedroom / 2 bath home with 2 large covered porches (approximately 500 s.f. each!) that sets over a 6-stall barn. Exterior Garage holds 3 vehicles plus a lot more storage. There is an indoor arena complex with 7 stalls, a lounge/tack store, 2 bathrooms and shower and an upstairs 2 bed / 1 bath apt previously used for overnight summer camp (currently rented). There is also an outdoor arena, various pastures, run-ins and wooded areas that could be used for trail riding. Also available are two adjoining lots - a 2 acre building lot and a 5.6 acre building lot with deep water Potomac river access. The 5.6 acre lot is within the premier equestrian community of Whitings Neck Farm Estates, which offers riding and hiking trails, deep water Potomac river access with private boat ramp and docks, private tennis courts and a swimming area. All this plus it is close to historic Shepherdstown and the MARC train. Located only about an hours drive to Dulles Airport and about 90 minutes to the White House. Possible owner financing with 20% down. This property could possibly pay for itself if the buyer reopened the riding school and tack shelter store. The business opportunities are endless. Formally an Equestrian Center including summer camp and a tack store. Possible Breeding Farm and / or a Boarding Facility could be opened. Lots of acreage for expansion too. Or, utilize the current facilities and acreage and build your dream home adjacent to an equestrian themed community by the river.
