Horse property with gorgeous views!

Polo, Ogle County, Illinois

This tranquil 40-acre AG-1 retreat with its timber windbreak, fenced pastures, hay field, year-round creek, and turn-key Morton-built Equestrian Center (78’x112’) has a well-lit indoor arena, 8 stalls, and 1,000 sf of climate-controlled living quarters. Seven stalls are 11’x12’, the 8th is 14’x14’ and combined with its neighbor can be a mare and foal stall or used for stall-kept recovery. Entering the driveway, horses grazing in a lush 4-board-fenced paddock will welcome you. Along that lane, Eastern Redbuds and tulips bloom pink in spring. At that paddock’s rear gate there is an automatic waterer and hydrant for connecting a hose or filling a bucket if needed. That same lane continues past the hilltop apple orchard (Jonathons, Jonagolds, and Honey Crisps) that bears enough fruit for you and your herd to share. That same lane provides access to the arena via the east side’s sliding door, big enough for horses and farm equipment. Through two more gates that lane leads to the barn’s backside, the dry lot, stall exits, and around the entire property. The barn’s center doors open wide enough for loading a trailer or unloading a hay wagon. At the parking pad, the walk-thru entry opens to living quarters on the right—a kitchenette and two bathrooms on the first floor—and a staircase on the left that leads up to a great room (33’x11’) with baseboard heat, ceiling fan, window a/c, cable, Wi-Fi, and an office or bedroom that overlooks the mare and foal stall below. On both levels, windows provide an unobstructed view of the arena, stall fronts, and partial view of the dry lot. Upstairs, sliding-glass doors open onto a deck for picturesque views of 5 more fenced paddocks, 2 more automatic waterers, 3 more frost-free hydrants, and a 48’x18’ loafing shed as shelter from storms or scorching heat. The first-floor’s kitchenette adjoins the indoor wash rack (lined in fiberglass), with crossties and an indoor frost-free hydrant. Beyond the wash rack, a tack room with shelves and cabinets doubles as a utility room with hot and cold tap water, water softener, iron eliminator, set-tub, washer/dryer, and two instant hot water heaters (one for faucets, the other for radiant heat in the first floor’s living space). All stalls have in-and-out access to the arena and the 60’ outdoor dry lot/round pen and its gated access to a central lane that leads to southern and western paddocks. Here, an equine enthusiast can board, train, or rescue horses, or conduct riding or equine-assisted therapy sessions while potentially adding onto the living quarters or building a separate residence. Come watch radiant sunrises and sunsets, deer at dusk, eagles in flight, meteor showers, and lunar eclipses minutes from White Pines State Park, Lowell Park, I-88, local riding trails, shopping, restaurants, groceries, fast food, health clinics, pharmacies, hospitals, and public schools. This is a horse lover’s dream and now it can be yours!
