Horses OK! Lease may be for greater than 1 year - negotiable rent based upon lease length. Tenant pays all utilities including trash and landscaping and barn/pasture maintenance. Barn lease is negotiable and is separate from the house lease; however, ALL are included in the acreage for rent. See additional description for lease arrangements.

9 acre horse farm with 5 acres of pasture (2.5 acres fenced) for horses with attached 2 stall working barn with access to miles of trails and rural wooded space.

Home is a 2 story cape cod (brick) with a full size basement, 2 car attached garage, deck, aggregate stone sidewalks and pergolas to enhance this country retreat's nature's bounty. Kitchen, baths and landscaping/hardscaping newly renovated. Entire home is hardwood (oak or heart pine), Virginia grey slate or tile with several antique fixtures including hearth masonry, beams and the heart pine plank flooring which extends end to end in kitchen/tavern room. All windows have plantation style wood shutters or hearty wood blinds for privacy.

This is not a typical rental property listing. The entire property is custom including the home and horse barn/pastures. I am looking for a tenant to love this property as much as I do. This property is not for sale. It is part of a ancestral farm that has been in my family since the Revolutionary War. This property provides access to thousands of rural farmland and a local fox hunt club with an abundance of equestrian activities.
