Grab your britches, pull on your paddock boots and prepare yourself for a life of horse jumping on a 200-acre equestrian estate located a stones-throw away from downtown Toronto.
Most little girls at some point or another dream of owning their own pony: spending hours braiding its hair; whispering encouraging words into its ears; or just sitting on its back while it grazes.
Well, for $6.9 million all your childhood dreams can come true…and with the extent of the extras this Southern Ontario property offers, it’ll probably fulfill all your adulthood dreams as well.
Just a 45-minute drive from Toronto (Hwy. 401 and Regional Rd. 25), this equestrian compound covers 200 acres of pristine paddocks and private horse-riding facilities.
The 40-stall barn has its own groom quarters, which not only means you could keep enough horses to ride a different one almost every week for a whole year, but you’d also never have to muck a single stall (that’s what the groom’s for).
A heated four-car garage gives you plenty of space for a massive trailer-hauling truck and a vintage convertible Porsche (because you’ve now got a taste for speed after racing your steed along your own personal quarter-of-a-mile training track).
The 100-year-old house has been recently renovated giving the master bedroom its own Jacuzzi tub and skylights, but let’s be honest, if you’re investing in this property it’s all about the riding.
An Olympic-sized indoor ring would be the ideal place to perfect your two-point position, while the kilometres of riding trails would give you a chance to test your (and your faithful steed’s) endurance.
And once your day on the back of your favourite thoroughbred is done, practice your putt on the six-hole golf course or relax in the onsite sauna with periodic dips in the in-ground pool. Just no horsing around, OK?
Wait! Who are we kidding? That’s exactly what this estate was made for.
