This 10-acre property features an exquisite setting for its 1916 house, with professional landscaping shielding the view of the barns from the road and neighboring properties. Dating to the early 1900s, this was the original portion of a large dairy farm, and the solid block barns with lofts, stalls, and office that can be a large tack room were built by German prisoners of war during World War 11. Several areas are appropriate for pastures. The house, buildings, and grounds have been meticulously maintained by the owner.
Located in Howard County, this is an unusual opportunity to own a manageable property for the equestrian who needs to be close to top-rated schools and universities, commuter routes, employment and shopping centers, golf courses, and entertainment. The area has a horse owner community that includes 4-H horse clubs for young riders.

- Built in 1916, the late Victorian-style house has historically appropriate decor, including custom-crafted English carpets, leaded glass transom windows, and beautiful full bay windows offering gorgeous views of the grounds. The living room and dining room open to each other, with classic columns dividing at the sides. A family room also features a full bay window with window seat. To the back, is an updated kitchen and a private office, each of which opens to the back porch. On the second floor, the primary bedroom has a private bath, a sitting room, and a walk-in closet, and there are three more bedrooms sharing a hall bath. The third floor has a huge bedroom, a second bedroom, a full bath, and a large storage room or closet. The basement has been finished with a club room, den, storage rooms, and full bath. The exterior has been updated with replaced siding and a low-maintenance wrap porch. Windows have been replaced, air conditioning added, and electrical service updated.
- The first view of this property is impressive, with the house set back an open lane (paved to full standards to accommodate heavy vehicles), and the front grounds extending to the right. Gardens with year-round interest are marked with stacked-stone walls, and landscaping screens the property from the adjacent subdivision. The front circular drive extends to the back of the house to access the barns, garages, and sheds, which are hidden from view in the front. A rear area accessible to the barns is fenced. A horse owner will want to adapt the barns for their preferred use.
Horse Facility Features
- This property was built as a dairy farm, so the main barn is open, but stalls can be easily added. Several areas are available for finishing as tack rooms. The owner used part of the second barn as an office, where there is climate control and secure storage.
