    I said MAJOR, didn't I!?? But the inside of the barn is cute and workable, and oh man, the town is just so gorgeous....that price is about what you would pay for the land, so it would be worth buying just to tear down the old hay barn and the ugly house, and rebuild!
    oh i could afford this one!
    and if ic an't find something in my county (chittenden in vermomt)i'll be looking in this area, thanks!

    If I could ever manage to win this damn mega-millions you will find me living here: http://sea.themlsonline.com/details,...ts,316664.html

    The house looks fine (like most horse people I gloss over the house pics ) but I want that gorgeous arena and lovely pastures SO BAD! And I figure the 3-car garage with RV bay that would fit a lift will keep the SO occupied with his projects so I can ride all of those lovely horses I'm going to buy at the European auctions LOL

    For those with racing aspirations ... still on the market almost five years later (and without a change in the $10M price) Tepta Farm ("Chantilly of the Chesapeake") in Maryland.

    And the largest farm that I'm aware of on the market in Virginia at 2,426 acres: the late Ned Evan's Spring Hill Farm, Casanova, VA for $25 million.

    Also on the market (for a looong time) is the famed estate of Peggy Augustus' also in Virginia - Old Keswick on 550-acres for $13.5 million.

    And for some multi-media video you can see Ashleigh Farm in Delaplane, VA largely restored by art patron and thoroughbred owner Sandra Payson who passed away about a decade ago. It is back on the market for $3,495,000 which is almost the same price the current owners paid.

    A few examples in Canada (while watching HH in the background, same requirements.. open plan, SS, granite... for a first house! I don't have all that but I would really like a new kitchen...)

    http://www.horseclicks.com/stunning_...perties/329781 Lindsay is kind of out of the way though.

    I love the century stone farm http://www.horsefarmsontario.com/hfo/hfo_default.aspx

    Just about anything here will do...anything w/easy access to the Foundation. I used to live on Old Mail Road (working student housing!! no SS appliances but granite in the driveway! ha) and it's really lovely.

So right now I'm really looking more at rentals; DH wants to rent horse property and I don't, but even then we need rentals that accept two dogs, and possible has "RV parking" for the horse trailers!

    I found one place that was on four acres, cross fenced for cows or horses..but says no pets! Uh?
    I understand the no pets deal, I am sure if people are even hazarding a thought about selling they absolutely do not want pets in or on the property. It is why I am thinking about not putting in a pasture on our scant 2 acres because of the damage that horses can do on grass/don't want a sacrifice area because we are really not in a "horse" property area, and it will probably not sell that way. It is very cute and rural as it is but on hardpan.

    Hey Glimmer that would be "Tapeta Farm", although I think it is not selling because you might have to dress like that woman with the "hat"? Guess not too many American Oligarchs out there with the cash. wow

    [QUOTE=alabama;6805047]When I was house shopping, an appraiser told me that things like fencing and barns did nothing for an appraisal. I was surprised by that.

    QUOTE]

    I had one realtor tell me the same thing-that my barn, indoor, and all the post and rail fenced pastures weren't worth anything. And, to top it off, she had horses herself! I admit I had heard that in relation to a swimming pool.

    Now, on the plus side, when I built the barn and indoor and fenced and cross fenced, my assessment only went up $30K. Believe me, I spent a WHOLE LOT MORE than $30K, well over 130K to be exact!

    I would love to see a thread from all of the regions in the US with these kinds of properties or up to $400,000 simply because I am dying to get out of here! I want sun! And of course would never even consider anything more than that price wise.

    Ok, is this just me or does this purchase price seem too low for that area? That is a lovely property, I may have to think about moving to Jersey!

    You have to look at the job availability to see if the purchase price is "low" for that area. I am sure they are pricing it for the market unless they need to cut and run quick.

    This seriously looks like something out of a dream. So beautiful.

    Indeed my latin is a bit rusty hence the misspelling (tapeta means carpet) on Micheal's farm. It's a lovely place but priced exceeding out of whack for the region. 200 acres is nice but you can get more for less and the house isn't a Revolutionary War era pile like the traditional Eastern Shore old money farms.

    Is that the Fleek QH property??? -- because I do think it went under contract. Another one of my dream places.
    Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.

    This thread has got me looking at things that I can't afford. And I'm really not looking to buy or rent a home right now anyway. But it's fun to look!

    I really like these places:

    I'd take this place in a heartbeat:

    haha, I know, right?!!!

    When we were looking for our first home a few years ago I was DESPERATE to buy someplace I could have horses. Even potentially have horses. This was in Western Mass in 2007 (yeah, not a good time... dumb). You would not believe the $#!% hole houses we looked at in an effort to find a property suitable for equines.

    If I had a few extra bucks I would snap this place up. $625k, indoor, FORTY stalls, picturesque New England farm with a pond. (Squee! Ducks!)

    On this one, check the slide show and the rotating wall in the tack room. Whacky cool!

    Oh, and all the ones in the PWN, note they are photographed when it is not raining. Which is not half the year.

    And the ones with the sprawling lawns? Make sure it comes with a riding mower and that you have someone to cook dinner for you, because you will be mowing every day after work during some parts of the year.

    The flip side complaint I have is when a house is said to be "perfect for the equestrian" in the description and all it has is a 2-acre lot and a small, dingy barn. Seriously? That's a "horse farm" in some real estate circles?

    Honestly just because there is a "barn" doesn't make a property suitable for horses. Claiming such just illustrates how little an agent knows about riding.

    Level ground, good fencing, proper water, a stable with box stalls, the opportunity for trails (and I don't mean goat paths with a 30-degree pitch) .. we get the picture.

    I can't get over how much you can get for the money in some areas. Acreage, indoor arenas, etc.

    I think I'm depressed.
