An Equestrian Sanctuary (Drastic Price Reduction, Seller is Ready to Sell!)
A sanctuary is a sacred place. With use of such places as a haven, by extension the term has come to be used for any place of safety. Located near Uwharrie National Forest and serene Badin Lake, this farm is a sanctuary for you and your animals. No matter your discipline, this 10-acre equestrian center is the answer to safe, profitable and enjoyable training, boarding and/or breeding. A large barn/arena/office complex is a perfect destination for students/boarders. Easily accessible to both Charlotte and the Triad area and in close proximity to the fashionable Badin Lake communities, equestrian enthusiasts are readily available. Enter the farm by one of two gated, tree-lined entrances, one for the home and a separate entrance for the equestrian center; permitting students/boarders assess while maintaining the privacy of your home. Travel down the tree-lined drive to the home, crossing a creek and up a knoll to the cedar sided cottage w/metal roof. From this idyllic setting one has unobstructed vistas of the entire farm. While the focus of this property is the pristine and comprehensive equestrian facilities, the home is comparable to the quality of the property and amenities. Originally built in 1986 the home has had several upgrades, including a roof in 2006, kitchen renovation in 2014 and the addition of a large composite material deck w/pool. True to the setting, a rocking chair front porch welcomes you. Enter the home through the wood w/lead glass front door to an open, airy, comfortable home. Sight lines from the front door direct your eyes past the living rm and breakfast bar and beyond to the large kitchen window and glass door to the deck. In the distance the pastures and equestrian center are plainly visible. Clearly the open living rm, kitchen and dining area is the focal living space of this warm home. The living area offers a gas fireplace w/tile hearth set in a wall of built-in shelves, cabinets and entertainment center. Separated from the kitchen by a granite covered breakfast bar w/pendant lights, the newly renovated kitchen offers beauty, efficiency and an adjoining dining area open to the deck. In addition to the deck/pool, one has access to the 2-car garage and over sized laundry rm w/separate door to the garage, again supporting this area as the home epicenter. The home offers a large master w/separate sitting rm/office area (or can be converted back to 3 bedooms), 2 large walk-in closets and a tile bath. A guest bedrm and bath complete the main level. A full walkout basement downstairs presents an opportunity to build-out several additional rms. Built in 2004, the Equestrian Center has so much to offer it will take several walks through to absorb all the features. Business can be conducted in the climate controlled office or spacious observation lounge. The lounge opens to a large corridor that connects the barn and the arena. No need to go outside, tack your horse and go to the arena without leaving the center. The 200’ x 50’ arena has sliding doors at both ends; tongue and groove wooden walls; 2 large fans and an industrial heater ensure the arena is comfortable year-round. A footing of base w/screenings and sawdust helps your horses remain sound while training. Superb lighting combined w/natural light enables use at any time of the day or night. On the opposite side of the equestrian center the barn was designed and built by knowledgeable equestrians. Sliding doors at each end of the barn access a wide center aisle opening to (10) 12’ x 12’ stalls, grooming stall, wash stall w/hot & cold water, owner & guest tack rms, shavings/hay storage area, feed rm and laundry rm w/cabinets. All stalls have interlocking mats, tails board, and water w/rotary H2O bucket holders. The barn also has a heater and a large fan for climate control, as well as a fly mist system. The equestrian center has a dedicated entrance w/security gate, is easily accessible with generous space for parking to include truck and horse trailers, a generator for power outage and two large storage sheds for hay and equipment storage. 2 pastures w/white vinyl fencing separate the center and the home/remainder of the property. On the opposite side of the pasture the farm has an additional pony barn w/storage. Nearby there is another special opportunity in the form of a large multi-use building. This 2.77-acre site is currently zoned industrial but offers numerous opportunities for use, such as an activity center, events venue/party center, storage for the car enthusiast, and many more. The building is climate controlled and handicap accessible, has a security system, 2 bathrms, 2 offices (one w/built-in office work space), large open space, garage door, parking or equipment storage pad.
