Great Room | Enter through the antique hand-crafted mahogany front door and step into this remarkable great room. You’ll be enchanted with the massive stone fireplace and the floor to ceiling windows overlooking pastoral views. The oak floors were reclaimed from an 1880s Amish barn and milled locally. On the south side of the home, sunny French doors open out onto a covered porch and the vineyard and English gardens beyond.
Kitchen & Dining | Open to the great room, the handsome kitchen/dining area provides a luxurious setting for family meals. Beneath the elegant chandelier, there’s plenty of space for an extended dining table. The galley kitchen features a Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and top-of-the-line KraftMaid maple cabinetry. The center island offers breakfast bar seating, warming drawer and stainless bar sink. Adjacent to the kitchen is the mudroom with handy walk-in pantry, an abundance of storage, double stainless sink and additional dishwasher.
Alcove | This charming alcove connects the expansive great room with the quiet bedroom wing of the home. A powder room featuring a hand-painted mural of the local horse country is located just off this alcove. Notice the hardwood floors and bead board ceiling. The handsome ball on the staircase post was crafted from a one-of-a-kind burl wood knot.
Master Bedroom | Located in a hushed area of the residence, the private master suite boasts soaring vaulted ceilings with hand hewn poplar beams. The tall arched window overlooking the estate grounds provides a sunny ambiance.
Master Sitting Area | In the master sitting area, you’ll find a handsome brick fireplace with an efficient Heatilator wood burning stove.

This is the ideal spot for enjoying intimate evenings beside a crackling fire.
2 Master Baths | The master suite features separate His and Her baths. In His bath, you’ll find a steam shower and cedar-lined walk-in closet with built-in shelving. In Her bath, a wall of windows brings in morning sunlight and offers views to a private garden area. Enjoy the relaxing corner spa tub, spacious vanity and large walk-in cedar-lined closet with built-in shelving and drawers. Notice the beautiful antique stained glass window and tile floors.
Guest Bedrooms | The home includes two guest bedrooms, one on each floor. The lower guest room includes an ensuite bath, heavy crown molding and French doors with direct access to a quaint and private vine-covered sitting porch. The clever loft bedroom features open beamed ceilings, ensuite bath and a built-in handcrafted Murphy bed. The unique character of this room will be a hit with teens or guests.

Beyond, acres of rolling, board-fenced pastures offer an idyllic estate setting.

Barn | Spring Valley Farm includes 2 barns which have been updated with new siding, metal roofs/gutters and fresh paint. The main barn provides 13 stalls, feed room, half bath, tack room with new tack locker cabinets, and a nicely-appointed trainer’s apartment with full bath. New flooring, carpeting, refrigerator and washer/dryer were installed in 2009. The nearby lower barn includes 6 stalls, wash stall, tack room with AC, 2 workshops, storage room, and a shed for tractors and mowers. This convenient complex has provided the setting for a successful boarding barn business and also lends itself to the ideal setting for a private equestrian training center.
Equestrian Facilities | Spring Valley Farm offers a full range of equestrian amenities including an irrigated outdoor ring, 2 pastures, 15 paddocks and distinguished 4-board fencing. There’s an additional storage barn for farm equipment and plenty of room for parking horse trailers and vans. The farm boasts desirable access to miles of private equestrian trails via the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) and Foothills Equestrian Trail Association (FETA).
Business Potential | For the savvy investor, Spring Valley Farm is an ideal venue for business opportunities. The barn has been operated as a successful boarding barn offering full board, training and lessons. The facility is popular with boarders because of the convenient location, availability of paddocks and pastures, and access to FENCE and FETA equestrian trails systems. Because the farm offers paved roads and underground utilities, several existing lots on the farm could also be developed with new homes, providing the owner with lucrative sales or rental income. Please contact us to discuss the full range of options for business ventures.
