Purchase, NY Unimproved Land
Nestled on nearly 7 private acres adjacent to a golf course in suburban Purchase, N.Y., the equestrian amenities are the jewel of this magnificent working farm, the only one of its kind in lower Westchester County. This serene corner-lot setting of paddocks and pastureland includes a single-family carriage house and pays homage to the equestrian lifestyle. The equestrian complex was made for horse and rider. The property, which will appeal to equestrians and nature lovers with its spectacular views and lush setting, is zoned for stables and is a working horse farm situated on a quiet country road. A tree-lined driveway leads to a 20-stall horse stable with a heated tack room/office, wash stall and lounge, plus two modular stables provide an additional seven stalls. Turnout consists of six individual grass turnout paddocks and one large grass field allowing horses to exercise and graze in the open fields. The complex also features a 16,000 square foot, 80-foot by 200-foot covered indoor riding ring consisting of metal construction rebar and concrete with retractable sides, indoor heated lounge and southern exposure. The spectacular 100-foot by 300-foot fully lighted outdoor ring features a sand surface. The property's charming, circa 1890, 7-room carriage house features three-quarter-inch cedar siding. The historic structure, renovated in 2000 to include modern amenities, provides 2,100 square feet of elegantly appointed space on two levels. The main floor features a formal living room, dining room with two-sided fireplace, kitchen, and den/office, and the upstairs leads to three bedrooms. Additional amenities include a deck with retractable awning, wood-burning fireplace, a two-car detached garage, two-car carport, and a full, unfinished walk-out basement. This serene property, which borders state land and sits at the end of a quiet country road, is deeply rooted in the community's history. It was originally part of a much larger, 500-acre parcel of land which constituted Strathglass Farm. The massive estate, which was acquired in separate purchases starting in 1911, was owned for decades by the Chisholm family, which ran a cattle breeding business and gained a reputation for its thoroughbred Ayrshires. The cattle farm later became a major producer of dairy products. Located within Purchase, which is coveted for its quiet country character and tranquil beauty, this gem of a property is rarely and conveniently located about 35 minutes north of Manhattan and 5 minutes from Westchester County Airport. It also offers convenient access to bus and rail transit as well as town parks. Harrison's award winning schools offer busing to public and private schools.
