The Farm | Equestrian Center
The farm has been developed over many years with the primary intent of providing Equine Veterinary Medical Services.
There is an old rustic cabin that would be ideal for a caretakers unit that is approximately 1,400 square foot, located on the front of the farm that has been greatly improved and has old birds eye, knotty pine interior.
Located on 14 plus acres of well kept land that has been excavated and groomed with a multitude of improvements:

The facility has five buildings and a 100 x 200 foot irrigated arena that has a sand/recycled tire rubber footing. As well, there is about 1 mile of hill track trail for therapy and rehabilitation as well as riding purposes. There is a roll up tarp roof over a concreted floor shavings bin structure and as well full open concrete manure bin for storage. The five buildings are listed as such:
The main barn is about 8,000 square feet and houses all the primary workings of a high end Equine Veterinary Hospital including a full operating room/surgery with a separate Knockdown/recovery, imaging room and neurologic stall. All of this is tied together with an overhead traveling hoist throughout this part of the hospital.

All of this facility has a specialized rubber floor system and is Heated and Cooled. There is central oxygen supply system that is plumbed throughout the medical facility, as well as an attached Farrier facility and a digital scale.
The Middle Barn is a large scale use barn that is more open and ventilated with 8 – 12 x 16 stalls that are separated and have rubber mats with Automatic waterers.

The upper metal Barn is multi use with large hay storage or other use room, storage with a vehicle drive in door and human walk in door, Euthanasia/Necropsy room with own roll-up door and a covered outdoor space for Stallion/Semen Collection.
This entire facility can be turn-key for a large animal/equine veterinary operation to be taken over or could be used for some other business endeavor as the infrastructure is robust and in excellent working condition. The current zoning is Light Agriculture. The water rates are rural residential but can be agriculture rates if 3 acres or more are developed for agricultural endeavor.
