I literally found this out of the blue....

It's for sale - all glorious 25 acres. Went on market last July for $299K. Was reduced on Saturday to $225K.

Pretty much exactly what I've been looking for, just wrong time in my "life plan". It's about 7 months too soon. Not to mention the husband being unemployed now.

BUT I'm still going to go look tomorrow - crunch some numbers. See if it can at least support itself if managed correctly and some updates, like indoor arena and restrooms in barn. Market for board in that area is anywhere from $300 to $850.

If I can make numbers work and put together a 5 year and long term plan I may just go for it. Stay tuned!


  1. Sounds like a good deal. Good luck with your number crunching.

  2. Oh wow, that would be awesome! *crossing fingers*

  3. Looks like a great place. Follow your dreams.

  4. OHHH sounds like a big decision!! Can't wait to hear what you do!!

  5. a Quote for you...thought it was for me to find the perfect photo and post to write up...but maybe it's yours today.

    If not now, or this particular property...sounds like in the future it may come to pass....Praying for the right thing!

  6. Thank you KK. I do agree with that quote and I do live life to it's fullest as there may not be a tomorrow.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and encouragement. This is a huge decision to make. Our thoughts were find our "forever home" and if it had enough acreage grow into a boarding/lesson/training facility as we move into retirement. Todays housing market makes finds like this very hard to walk away from.


Happy Trails!
