Bartonville, TX, USA
A spectacular world-class equestrian facility, perfect for training virtually any equine discipline. Located just north of the DFW Metroplex in Bartonville, Texas. This property is situated on approximately 100 acres in the heart of North Texas horse country and is only 20 minutes from DFW airport. This stunning, French Normandy style horse farm was originally built in 2001 as an English dressage training and breeding facility and is currently a cutting horse training operation. Constructed with the utmost quality in design and craftsmanship, this is truly an extraordinary property with multiple residences. The sellers have made many renovations to the property since their ownership. The show barn was designed with Normandy-style cathedral ceilings and has 20 stalls, two climate controlled tack rooms, two large, tiled wash racks, laundry room, conference room and full bath. It is state-of-the-art construction complete with industrial fire protection system, security cameras and overhead fly control system. Each stall has an outside door, and over-hanging porches encircle the barn deflecting direct sunlight from the stalls. Above the main barn is a spacious apartment with two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and full bath and a beautiful view looking out over the front pastures. Adjacent to the show barn is the training barn with 20 separate stalls. Designed with a canopy roof, the cross ventilation keeps stalls at a comfortable temperature even on the hottest Texas days. The tack room is air-conditioned and has a bath with commercial washer and dryer. There is also a central office and conference area with a full bathroom. The climate controlled 200 ft x 100 ft indoor arena includes four eight-ton A/C units, two Big Ass Fans and two exhaust fans. It also has custom roll up overhead doors, cedar stave wall fencing and a viewing pavilion that is ideal for event entertaining. The viewing pavilion includes a kitchen, two offices and two baths. There are two sets of bleachers and a public address system for horse shows and events. The viewing area spans the width of the arena with floor to ceiling windows. This space has a full kitchen and room to entertain large groups. There is also a private office, perfect for the owner or manager. Adjacent to the indoor arena are two covered round pens. One houses a European-style walker, and the other is a perfect place for ground work. Also, adjacent to the arena is a jumping arena with jumping chute designed for free jumping. A covered patio with an outdoor kitchen nearby is a great place to entertain guests and clients. The arena is connected by an alley system that leads out to the northwest pastures. Behind the jumping arena is a 130 ft round pen and a 4000 sf barn for equipment and hay. The main residence on the property is approximately 4000 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths overlooking the three ponds on the property with a two-car garage. This nicely appointed home has an open concept and can serve well for the owner, manager or trainer. It has a beautiful view of the large pond on the north side of the property. Towards the back of the property, there are two attached casitas that have been recently remodeled. The larger casita is ideal for visitors staying on the property for events, and the one-bedroom efficiency side adds additional guest space. The larger side has a beautiful fireplace and a comfortable kitchen and living room that would make anyone feel right at home.
