Amethyst Acres

Amethyst Acres is a large and very well-equipped equestrian center on nearly 27 acres with commercial horse breeding and boarding facilities. The rolling acreage lies just beautifully, and includes at least 2 potential new home sites. It is very conveniently located in the Shenandoah Valley between Lexington in the North, and Roanoke in the south and very near the Blue Ridge, with fabulous mountain views, and just above the James River. A public boat ramp facility is located very nearby. It is only about 30 minutes travel time to the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, 40 minutes to the Roanoke Regional Airport, and an hour to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.

The overall equestrian facilities include 5 barns, 34 stalls, and 10 board and/or horsecote fenced paddocks. The 6,364 sq. ft. main barn structure (36ft. x 172ft.) is a high quality modular system and at one end includes an integral 1,296 sq. ft. residential apartment with 2 BR, 1 BA, great room, and full kitchen. Please note: auto-estimates of value on various sites are based on the apartment square footage only—and do not include the remaining 5,068 sq. ft. of the main barn devoted to office, lab, half bath, laundry, tack room, other finished spaces, and the 12 stables in the main barn area (12 stalls with 2 16ft. x 12ft. foaling stalls, and 10 12ft. x 12ft. boarding stalls).

The main barn also contains 2 breeding stocks and a phantom set-up, along with 2 wash stalls. Also, the main barn interior area is comprised of modular 4 ft. insulated panels—a system which provides for easy reconfiguration dependent upon one’s requirements, and it has a zero fire rating. There is also an operational fly control system for the main barn area, and existing wiring arrangements designed to accommodate standby power generators if needed.

Other horse facilities include a 60’x60′ 10 stall barn; a 48’x48′ hay barn w/ 8 stalls & 16′ plate line; a 48’x12′ 4 stall barn; a 24’x12′ 2 stall barn/isolation paddock; run in sheds and more. The horse facilities reflect quality construction and have been well-maintained.

Overall, this offering represents tremendous value, and an ideal opportunity to generate income from operational equine-related businesses, along with potential new home sites.

Amethyst Acres has a 20+ year record of profitability as an equine boarding/breeding business, and there is an existing and active client base. The current owner is willing to mentor new ownership during a transition period with agreed upon terms for such.

It’s all here for the horse enthusiast to simply enjoy their passion in an ideal setting—or to take the entrepreneurial plunge and run their own boarding and/or breeding business. Live in the spacious owner’s apartment while building your dream home, and use the apartment later for guests and/or for conducting training seminars, etc.

Please see the parcel map in the images section for the 26.45 acres included in this offer (marked as Parcel A). A new survey is to be recorded upon closing.
