Many people dream about but rarely get to realize the beauty and pleasure of having horses on the property on which they live. If you have a horse or horses that you are boarding elsewhere, you know the amount of time you get to spend with your horse or riding your horse never seems to be enough. Here is a rare chance to own an idyllic equestrian compound with two homes -- a gorgeous newer 4 bedroom 2.1 bath home custom built in 2005 and a lovely older well-maintained 3 bedroom 2 bath brick ranch with some updates that's perfect for in-laws, trainers or caretakers, or as a rental property. Remember, the best rental is the one located on your property where you can see what is going on and better manage it!
The gorgeous custom built 4018 sq ft main home is a refined 2-story western style ranch with both green and energy-saving features. It was designed after a grainery the sellers saw in Montana. It has cedar wood grain vinyl siding with a lifetime warranty, metal roof, over-sized Anderson windows, zoned radiant floor heating, central air, a 3-car attached garage, circular driveway, 1295 sq ft basement, and a 254 sq ft screened porch with sound, a ceiling fan for cooling comfort, and a wood-burning fireplace for evening warmth and radiance.
Inside, the home is very warm and inviting with an open floor plan, neutral decor, extra wide hallways and staircases, and spectacular views of Whipps Ledges and Allard County Park. Much of the warmth comes from the virgin hardwood timber beams in beech and oak, the reclaimed wide plank white oak flooring, the wormy chestnut cabinetry, the massive old growth walnut staircase, the dark bronze lighting and fixtures, and the beautiful slate flooring in the kitchen, baths, and entry areas. Stunning! On the main floor you will find a spacious mudroom area, a nearby powder room with slate countertop and vessel sink, a corner office with pocket door, and a welcoming foyer with dual coat closets. Directly off the foyer, open to the great room, is a large eat-in kitchen with wide plank reclaimed white oak inset, pull-out drawers, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen, is a large walk-through pantry that leads to the garage entrance for easy unloading of groceries. The formal dining room and the 2-story great room, with floor-to-ceiling Rumford fireplace, are open to each-other making it feasible to seat more people on the holidays and other large gatherings with family and friends. Completing the first floor is the laundry room and the 1st floor owners suite. A gorgeous and rustic wormy chestnut sliding door and leaded glass window adorn the entrance to the owners suite. The suite features a vaulted beam ceiling, two walk-in closets, a third closet for added storage, and a glamour bath with slate tile flooring, tile shower, and soaking tub. Upstairs is a large 24x12 sq ft loft with extraordinary views, two very large bedrooms with walk-in closets, and a nearly finished 4th bedroom that needs heat and flooring. This home is beautifully and professionally landscaped with numerous reclaimed old hand-cut foundation stone, tall grasses, and other easy-to-maintain plants and reclaimed art.
Adjacent to Cleveland Metroparks 3000 acre Hinckley Reservation, this property has DIRECT access to 11+ miles of scenic park bridle trails with ever changing elevations groomed for year round riding and exercise for any discipline. This 19 acre compound includes a 23 stall stable with StableComfort flooring system, automatic heated waterers, 23 lockers, and a hay loft with grain room and unique grain and hay drops; a 120 x 70 sq ft sand-based indoor riding arena with covered walkway and heated riders lounge and viewing area; an outdoor riding arena; four (4) large pastures; two (2) all weather paddocks with 440 Fencing; a hay and sawdust storage building; and a large equipment building. Another benefit of this location, besides the direct access to the metro park, is its close proximity to I-271, I-71, I-76, downtown Cleveland (30-35 minutes), Cleveland Hopkins Airport (30- 35 minutes) and Akron Canton Airport (35-40 minutes).
In the back of the property, the 1715 sq ft brick ranch, built in 1968, has a foyer that opens to the formal living room. Both have beautiful hardwood floors that continue into the hallway and into the three (3) bedrooms. There is a main bath off the hallway that is also accessible from the master bedroom. Two doorways from the living room lead to both the eat-in kitchen and dining room which are open to one another. The dining room has a lovely sandstone wood-burning fireplace, with stove insert, and sliding glass patio doors that leads to a large deck. The kitchen has newer appliances, dark oak cabinetry, and a light beige tile backsplash. It also has newer tile flooring that flows into the dining room and into the combined laundry room and mudroom area where you will find the entrance to a 2nd full bath and the side entry 2-car attached garage. The home also has a 1715 sq ft partially finished basement. It has a recreation room area, with wood-burning fireplace, that is open to what could be a gaming area. There is also an exercise room or office, and a long workbench with storage in the rear of the basement by the mechanicals. Behind the property is a large 43x25 sq ft equipment barn with 3 barn door entrances, and a small storage shed. The roof on this home and the equipment barn is about seven (7) years old. Other improvements in the last seven years include new energy-efficient windows, septic, and water system.
This is your chance to be near your horses, ride them regularly, have facilities for breeding or training, and simply own a piece of the country in a park-like setting minutes from shopping, dining, entertainment, work, and airports!
