Top notch equestrian facility equipped with state-of-the-art amenities such as Olympic sized indoor and outdoor arenas, new barn with 25 spacious, bright box stalls, several outbuildings and a beautiful four bedroom country home situated on 150 acres of pristine land featuring approx. 40 acres in fenced and seeded pastures. The venture offers room for a minimum of 40 horses. Beautifully set up for every riding discipline including shows this estates presents an opportunity to own a huge parcel of land with unlimited potential close to Milton, the fastest growing city in all of Canada. Providing great commuter access with approx. 15 minutes to major highways and only 30 minutes drive to the GTA and Pearson International Airport the property lies right in the centre of Ontario’s equine community. The proposed site for the 2014 Pan-Am Games and Ontario's future answer to Spruce Meadows is only 10 minutes away.
The most impressive feature of this equestrian facility is the amazing Olympic sized indoor arena. It is fully equipped with modern halogen lighting, oversized overhead doors at both ends, immaculate pine 5’ high kick boards all around with an amazingly bright and well ventilated, fresh atmosphere. The arena’s floor consists of a limestone base topped with an oiled mix of loamy sand and hardwood shavings which provides a secure, dust-free and springy cushion for a safe and a horse-friendly footing. It is frequently complemented by riders how much their horses seem to enjoy this footing.

Directly attached to the indoor arena is the new main barn which features 25 airy and spacious box stalls, two heated tack rooms, wash room with adjoining utility room, three separate grooming/wash stalls and several cross-ties throughout. The design of the barn pays attention to many minute details that have a huge impact on the horses' well-feeling and well-being. The big 10' x 12' stalls have grills instead of solid walls so that the horses can see around them which gives them the feeling of not being locked up and takes a lot of stress away. The open ceiling also enhances this airy and light feeling. Great ventilation was another important must because clean air is essential for a horse's sensitive respiratory tract. 23 big windows, 4 big vents in the roof and a temperature controlled fan in the peak ensure a fresh and unpolluted atmosphere throughout the entire barn. Grooming stall, wash stall and tack room are conveniently close to the entrance to the arena.
The main barn also boasts an automatic watering system for the horses with cold and warm water to encourage the horses to drink more in the winter. Each stall has feed doors which eliminate entering the stall at feeding time and rubber mats in every stall provide a cushiony underground for the horses. Ample lighting above each stall guarantees awesome illumination even at night so that not even a little nick on your horse's leg get missed when they come in. 2 massive silo hoppers just outside the barn allow bulk storage of grain and pellets cutting down the cost of feed by half.
For your peace of mind the barn, arena and house have a professionally installed alarm and CCTV system with 5 cameras, two control panels, access and smoke/fire detection fully monitored from the century home.

It is easily noticeable that the whole complex was custom designed with the utmost functionality and efficiency in mind creating an appealing and practical facility that can be run economically with a minimum of staff.
The facility is currently partially leased to a Grand Prix jumper rider which fully covers the expenses required to operate the stable. This equine centre has proven earnings of more than a quarter million Dollars per annum not even at full capacity. Now is a great opportunity for you to purchase a safe investment in the much more stable real estate market rather than rolling the dice on the stock market.
