On The Market: 44 Littleton County Road, Harvard
Only 25 miles west of Boston is the Ark, an incredible equestrian property with over 30 acres of land, waiting for the perfect buyer to enjoy the peaceful country setting and take advantage of this unique farm.
This property is a horse fanatic’s dream, with a seven-stall barn tailored for the horse and for the training. An ideal size for a buyer looking to enjoy the property rather than run a full-fledged business, there is also a workshop and garage, as well as parking for horse trailers.
The training areas include regulation outdoor dressage arenas with red cedar-flanked paddocks, as well as an indoor arena with newly installed Clopf footing—the same that used in the London Olympics. “You know the saying, ‘No foot, no horse,'” says LandVest listing agent Stanley Edwards, “well this is ‘No legs, no horse.'” Inside and out, this hallmark property was built with quality care and attention to detail, with maximum attention to the training.
The horses won’t be the only ones enjoying this property, however, as the home was renovated in 1996 when the antique farmhouse was enhanced by the addition of a Connecticut tobacco barn great room and an adjoining master suite. “The detail, character, and uniqueness of the property are truly extraordinary,” Edwards explains. With high ceilings and cozy architecture, this home is the perfect country residence.
Idyllically set among apple orchards and open fields, this one-of-a-kind property has beautifully landscaped grounds with ponds, a bluestone patio, and cedar raised garden beds and streams running through the land.
