This week's featured listing in Frederick is an equestrian's dream come true.
Built in 1915, the home and horse farm at 4800 Ballenger Creek Pike in Frederick, Maryland, would be considered somewhat modest for the asking price. Once you add in all of the buildings and the acreage, you have a unique, sprawling estate. There's so much to see—let's get started!
The main house is a stately Colonial with an open floor plan. Spacious receiving rooms on the first floor flow naturally back through a formal salon, living room, and dining room.
The kitchen has been fully renovated and overlooks a large breakfast room and informal lounge space.
When you head outside, you start to get a glimpse of what makes this property so unique. The stone terrace is the perfect place for outdoor dining. Did I mention it looks out onto your own private pond?
Summer days will be spent floating away in your beautiful pool. The landscaping that surrounds it makes it a tranquil oasis just steps from the house.
Further down the path, you come to the stables. Impeccably designed to house your prized horses in style, they make this a turn-key business simply from boarding opportunities alone.
The next outbuilding is a free-standing office. Your stable manager will appreciate having a separate workspace to meet with clients and visiting trainers.
An indoor exercise ring and larger show course are perfect for hosting special events on the premises. You could even offer riding lessons for additional income.
You could also set up competitions in the outdoor courses already marked off. With 70 acres to work with, you would soon become the premier horse farm in the area.
Last but certainly not least, there are two guesthouses on the property. Friends and family will love coming to visit when they have their own place to stay!
