A blockbuster property for the serious equestrian

Double H Farm offers Olympic-caliber equestrian amenities plus so much more on nearly 90 acres in Ridgefield.

To say Double H Farm is ideal for the equestrian is quite the understatement.

This world-class equine facility on 87 acres in Ridgefield, on Old Stagecoach Road and Neds Lane, offers luxurious amenities for no less than 43 horses.

The property also features a main house, staff apartments, two barns and outbuildings.

The Olympic-caliber barns have soft stall matting and rubber-tiled floors with radiant-heated aisles. The farm also houses offices and staff apartments reflecting its role in supporting the international breeding and training of horses owned by the E. Hunter Harrison family.

For the nuts and bolts, The Upper Barn has 14 12-by-12-foot stalls, including two foaling stalls, two grooming stalls, two wash stalls, a laundry room, tack and feed rooms, UV therapy lights and a covered hot walker.

The grounds are equally designed for equestrian use, laced with specially constructed golf cart paths, with rider-friendly footing, that lead to 17 groomed paddocks, a 3.5-acre Grand Prix Field with natural jumps and viewing stand, a 140-by-260-foot outdoor ring with drained and tiled all-weather footing, plus an 80-by-180 foot indoor ring complete with IGK footing.

Sited along the western-property line with gated access is the main or lower barn, a 20-stall facility with commercial lease-income potential, a trophy lounge, two office suites, four grooming and wash stalls, a laundry room plus tack and feed rooms. A shed row for vet/medical needs, farrier shed, a covered hot walker and treadmill complete these high-end amenities, while a large garage provides concealed storage for farm and transportation equipment. 

The main house, built in 2009, has not been neglected. There is a first-floor master suite, a chef’s kitchen, finished basement, fitness room, home theater, library, wine cellar/grotto, home office and more.

It also captures breathtaking sunset views from all windows with terraces and balconies surrounded by the beautiful gardens with koi pond, pool and heated spa. 

Additional highlights of this geothermal living space include an indoor golf room and a seven-car garage for the car enthusiast.

The lower property boasts a four-bedroom guest house and a farmhouse, in addition to a “party barn,” a saltwater pool and a resurfaced tennis and ball court.

It’s a stylish, sporting extravaganza, all for $33 million.
