Equestrian Charm and Efficiency
Some homes evolve, some are built for the masses and some struggle against their surroundings. Occasionally you find a home that was designed with charm and an eye for the setting and purpose. Such is the case at 6247 Settlers Trail in Stanfield, NC. This property is the model for a modern equestrian farm. The gated entrance opens to 9.15 attractive and well utilized acres with a beautiful home, oversized 3-car detached garage w/storage, excellent barn, competition quality riding arena, multiple paddocks with safe fencing and a pond. Each speaks to the thought and care that went into the planning of this farm. The farmhouse style home embraces tradition in a modern manner; open living space with adjacent rooms. Enter the great room from either the large covered back porch or the covered wrap around front porch. The open design combines living and dining space and simultaneously creates a split floor plan; guest rooms on one side and the master suite opposite. A high vaulted ceiling combined with multiple window adds to the open atmosphere. The kitchen offers gourmet efficiency with stainless appliances and marble countertops while remaining true to design with an informal breakfast bar and farm house sink. The master suite has access to the wrap-around porch, 2 large walk-in closets, and a large master bath with double sink vanity. The home has two guest rooms on the opposite side, one with access to the wrap-around porch. An office overlooking the pond completes the main house. The outbuildings were as well planned as was the home. The large 3-car garage has a high roof and extra high center door to accommodate higher profile vehicles, plenty of space for storage and room for other farm machinery. Horses live well, and safely, here in the MD Barn Master 4-stall barn. With a poured rubber coating over concrete center aisle, fans, hot and cold water, wash stall w/heat, stall mats over crush and run and Dutch doors with access to paddocks, this efficient barn again demonstrates the overall property design. Safety and comfort is the focus, from the superior arena footing to the Ramm fencing, the horse and rider were in the forethought. Located in a beautiful equestrian neighborhood with easy access to Charlotte, this is a move-in ready horse farm.
