Welcome to Turning Point Farm. This 11.5 acre property has been home for the past 29 years to an FEI dressage judge, competitor and breeder, who has lovingly created an equestrian village filled with wonderful pastures, outbuildings, arenas and gardens. The property with the bank barn, blacksmith shop and farmhouse dates back to the 1790's. In 1990 a full size Wooden Dressage (70x200) indoor arena was built with dust free permaflex mix footing, full short side Mirrors (70~x10~), 3 (8x16) huge sliding doors, 10 (5x8) safety glass sliding windows and insulated metal roof. There is a regulation FULL size dressage outdoor riding arena with rubber footing, trailer parking and a circular path for trailer in lesson parking. The bank barn houses nine stalls, with an insulated & heated tack & bathroom, inside wash stall (hot & cold water) and 2 grooming stalls. Six additional stalls were built around the barn creating a feel of the English ~yards~ for a total of 15 stalls, all with rubber mats. There is a large covered outside matted area for grooming, which also has a wash stall with hot & cold water.There are 18 separate grass paddocks, most with Nelson automatic heated waterers. 5 turnout sheds with rubber mats, one of which was the broodmare shed (24x24). Several other outbuildings were added over the years, used for various purposes, one of which is a a breeding shed that was built in 1996 adjacent to the original stone one room house (later a blacksmith shop). The limestone walkway accentuates the path to the different buildings around the property. It is also a tremendous help with drainage/mud prevention. The perimeter of the property is lined with evergreens. The stone on the charming farmhouse was totally repointed. An insulated raised seam aluminum metal roof was installed on the house. The interior of the home is simple and pure with hardwood flooring in most rooms. There are several entrances, but the main entrance is to a parlor room which is currently being used as a library. The kitchen, utility room, powder room, enclosed porch (used as an office), dining room with walk in fireplace (with wood stove insert) and lovely living room with corner fireplace and outside entrance to a re-floored porch complete the first floor. The main staircase to second floor leads to three charming bedrooms with a large renovated center hall bath that connects to an oversized master bedroom, complete with an exposed stonewall and private stairway to first floor. Staircase to floored, pine paneled, partially finished attic has room to stand . Contact agent for list of improvements. The owner has a transferable Commercial Business license that allows the property to be used for commercial equine purposes, such as boarding, training, & clinics.
