LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! 15+ acre turnkey horse farm secluded way off of the main road, surrounded by farmland in Ag Preservation, yet just minutes from downtown Westminster. This property has it all! Though it's currently the home of Little Longears Miniature Donkey Rescue, the owners also had their retired show horses here. The barn has everything a discerning horseman could want or need! A 7-stall center aisle barn with a brick paver floor, washrack with hot and cold water, grooming stall, and a heated tackroom with a bathroom! 5 of the stalls have dutch doors that lead out to paddocks with stone dust footing. The property has several paddocks with attached run-in sheds, all with adjoining pastures with 3 or 4 board fencing. Every paddock has water hydrants and electric for heated water troughs in the winter. Electric is also located in most of the run-in sheds for fans in the summer. There's also a second smaller barn just behind the house with two stalls and adjoining paddocks, plus a feed and storage room. This barn is probably best suited for ponies. A 30 ft. X 40 ft. pole barn provides tons of storage for hay, shavings, and equipment. The 80 ft. by 160 ft. riding arena has fantastic all weather footing of stone dust and sand. There are riding paths around the perimeter of the property to enjoy some trail riding. Over the years, this house has had additions and many updates. Once owned by a brick mason, parts of the house were built with block and finished with the brick exterior you see today. It is truly a fortress! More current updates include new windows, updated kitchen and bathrooms, paint, flooring, and two new HVAC systems, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. A huge paver patio was installed in the backyard, and the front of the house has an enclosed, fully screened-in porch, complete with lights and ceiling fans. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs, one of which is a giant master bedroom, with views in 3 directions of this incredible property. Plus it has access to another fully enclosed porch with windows and screens so you can enjoy your morning coffee and look out over the pastures. Downstairs there is one more bedroom, plus an office with incredible views of the pond and pastures. The house is surrounded by a completely fenced in yard, safe for your dogs. There's a chicken coop with an attached run, and fenced in yard with aviary netting so the chickens can roam, safe from predators. There is an old metal silo in pristine condition that is currently used for storage. Everything inside stays dry and protected from the weather. The nearly one acre pond is fed by a natural spring that never stops flowing fresh water into the pond. There are plenty of fish, turtles, and a couple of blue herons that visit regularly. Did we mention the views?! There isn't a bad spot on this property! Everywhere you look from any spot, there is a beautiful view, privacy, and nature everywhere.
