Is This The One?

Sunday, Brett and I checked out a promising place. The more we looked at it, the more promising it became. It's eight acres set in a beautiful valley.

The property was a dressage facility in 2008, complete with a professional trainer and lots of kids on dressage ponies. They even held schooling shows there. That owner lost the property in 2011 and the trainer packed up and left. Since then its been held by a bank and an investor. The investor bought it a year ago, threw on a new coat of paint, and listed it. The grass is knee high.

There is a full size dressage court and a warm up arena. Grass is growing through the sand, but the base looks good.

There are six or seven fenced pastures -- room for all the animals. The donkeys could have their very own pasture and we could rotate the horses amongst three of the others. The goats would have an area too.

There is a porch along the front of the house where we could sit in the evenings with a glass of wine and watch the deer. There are a lot of deer in the area.

The barn is huge with stalls, tack room, bathroom and an attached covered round pen.

We made an offer today; crossing our fingers and holding our breath. I'll let you know if it works out.

  1. Glad you finally found a ranch with a beautiful perfect house that suits you. This one meets all your requirements unlike the previous ones you've seen. I hope you finally moved in by now.
