We recently had a long chat with agent Sharyn Guzzi at Long Island Horse Properties about what equine lovers are looking for in a home. One question we had: is the barn or the actual house more important to horse people? She chuckled. Many of her customers insist on seeing the barn and horse facilities before they see the actual house. After all, you can always renovate a house.
This 19.3 acre property, represented by Linda Kouzoujian at Nestseekers, in Riverhead includes a three-bedroom, two bath home, but it’s clear that the barns are the stars of this listing. The newest one, built in 2012, offers 20 oversized stalls, each spacious enough for a mare and foal. There are two indoor stalls with drying heaters as well as a farrier/vetting area. A fire detection system keeps everything safe and a webcam enables you to look at your horse any time via the Internet or your smartphone. There’s an indoor riding arena, 15 acres of paddocks, and a flat area to be used for dressage or pleasure riding.
There are also two frame barns, three sheds and one pump house, along with the existing home for the mere humans. Price for all this is a comparatively reasonable $2.89 million.
