This sprawling 11-acre English-style estate encompasses two homesites within the exclusive, private community of Long Branch Preserve. Long Branch Preserve was created by a local outdoor enthusiast turned wilderness medicine physician who wanted to preserve and protect 400-acres of pristine wilderness and extensive trail system - both of which is owned in common with the residents of Long Branch Preserve. Today, most of the land is in a conservation easement with approximately 80 acres for 20 homesites (maximum); 2 lakes; village green; community barn with 6 stalls and an apartment for residents' guest use; community garden/orchard; pergola; 12 acres of fenced horse pasture; riding arena; wildflower meadow and 12 miles of private Long Branch trails that connect to the Cloudland Connector Trail System.
The 11-acre tract is mostly level and cleared with 2.5 acres of fenced pasture. Long Branch permits additional structures to be constructed in keeping with the design guidelines for those who prefer a private barn.
Long Branch itself has rolling meadows and open pasture, but it is mostly wooded. There are several creeks that wind through the community and roads are intentionally narrow and more natural ("chip and tar"). The feeling at Long Branch is one of harmony with nature and the land. In every direction as far as the eye can see are trees - scenery that is protected in perpetuity. Long Branch was originally designed with the equestrian in mind. The riding ring is 100x 300 and maintained regularly for proper and safe footing for many riding disciplines including jumping. Separate paddocks are available and complete with shed shelters for turned out horses. The barn has 6 10x10 stalls. A barn manager is on property to care for the horses. Trails are available for recreational rides.
