350-Acre Equestrian Facility Selling WITHOUT RESERVE!


PREVIOUSLY $8 MILLION. NOW SELLING NOVEMBER 12TH WITHOUT RESERVE! Enter through the brick and wrought iron gate, meander along the pasture-lined drive, and arrive at one of the world’s most renowned Arabian equestrian facilities: Butler Farm. More than 350 rolling acres, premier equine amenities, and an 11,000 sf owner’s residence comprise the farm, which also offers staff quarters, training/breeding outbuildings, and an open-air pavilion ideal for gala events, weddings, or family reunions.

The equestrian amenities at Butler Farm are world class: the main barn’s 66 stalls flank a two-story “heart” which is complete with spacious reception area, executive and administrative offices, and a full kitchen and bath. A 60-ft covered arena, sizable guest apartments and a bonus room with kitchen, music equipment room and dance floor finish the main areas of the facility, which also offers laundry, tack and employee break rooms. Additional outbuildings, arenas and smaller barns serve important functions from breeding to mare isolation to halter schooling – all components that contribute to the famed quality of the Arabians bred and brought up at Butler Farm.

Similarly impressive, the owner’s residence is a red-brick Georgian home, pleasing in its traditional styling and symmetry. A soaring, two-story foyer boasts Emperador Turkish marble flooring and a gracefully curving staircase. A parlor, formal dining room, and large living room with doors to the rear terrace are adjacent to the foyer, and the estate’s main level also hosts a lavish bedroom suite. With sitting area and spa-like bath featuring floor-to-ceiling marble, a luxurious spa tub flanked by gorgeous stained-glass windows, and a dramatic fireplace, the suite truly is a sanctuary: the perfect place to retire after a day on the farm.

A gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless appliances, abundant cabinetry, a versatile center island, granite countertops, marble floors, and an informal dining area are bathed in natural light from a wall of windows overlooking the estate.

A convenient and fully-equipped butler’s pantry stands nearby. A second-level lounge, sizable guest suite, additional guest room, and a sitting room (suitable for use as an additional bedroom) complete the main residence.

Butler Farm may be pastoral in setting, but the Property is just 85 miles from the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill triangle, 60 miles from Wilmington, and only 30 miles from Fayetteville, which offers shopping, dining, entertainment and a convenient regional airport with American and Delta flights as well as Signature Flight Support for private jets.
