         This pretty, custom-built North Carolina horse farm is located only 35 minutes from downtown Raleigh.   It is just off Exit 319 on Interstate 40.  The closest stores are within a three minute drive:  a convenience store at McGees Crossroads and a Food Lion near the interstate.  The home has just over 4400 square feet, two offices, and six bedrooms.  The great room in the home has an impressive stone fireplace.  The custom kitchen has granite countertops and a central island.  Throughout the first floor there is radiant heat under hardwood floors (in addition to the normal HVAC) for energy efficiency and extra climate control in each room.

IMG_4277The master bedroom of the home is on the first floor, and features a pretty bathroom with granite countertops and accents.  A second bedroom on the first floor  also has an attached bath, so it is perfect for older company.  Upstairs you will find an in-law suite, which is perfect if you want a live-in trainer.  The suite has its own kitchen, living area, bedroom, bath and laundry room.

One office is downstairs, and a second one upstairs could double as an occasional bedroom.  There are two loft areas for play spaces.

The horse facilities this working farm feature a four-stall barn with a tack room, grooming area, and hay storage.   The wash rack is just outside.  There is a full size, fenced arena suitable for jumping and a grassy dressage area too.  The land is very gently rolling and you could easily create a path three the woods for summer cool-down.  With boarders in place, you can have a horse business which generates income, or just enjoy your own horses.  The choice is yours.

About A Cain

I am originally from New York State and moved to Pennsylvania for college and graduate school. My husband and I later lived in California and West Virginia, and then we were transferred to North Carolina. I learned to ride as an adult, in North Carolina. I have two horses now: one wild-and-wooly teenager who is learning from me, and one former race horse that has turned into a school master for me. They are both pretty sensible and great on trails, so we go everywhere. They live with me on my own North Carolina mini farm. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch them graze.
