Okay, I was checking my email when I saw that a company had sent me their Stables and Estates brochure. Well that is the type of thing I love to look at. It had some really beautiful horse properties for sale. They would really fit me, I just need to win the lottery, that can’t be that hard? I found this reality company, Sotheby’s International Realty, well, when you see that name, you know it is going to have a fabulous price tag. So well worth looking at that site.
Maryland, very nice state. Here they had a house for sale with the following description:
Historic 133 acre estate 10 miles from Annapolis recently meticulously restored and updated. Three bedroom, 3 bath main Georgian house is accompanied by two, 2 bedroom guest cottages and a caretaker apartment. One of the finest equestrian properties in the Chesapeake Bay region, the 17th century manor features original paneling, 12 ft ceilings, and walk-in fireplaces. Just one mile from full service marina and only 45 minutes to Capitol Hill in DC.
It is just the most gorgeous wooden house with a porch. Don’t ask, but I just love porches. The inside is very antique and very much not my style. Or rather not my colors, so with a little different paint pallet this would be the perfect house. Just a shame they didn’t add pictures or the stable, just the indoor arena, which looks quaint but big.

Okay, going back to the catalogue, I am falling in love again and I think even more so. The description sounds fantastic and it is only $ 5,3 million.
The Maples of Upperville. A collection of nine fully renovated and restored buildings, in the heart of Piedmont Hunt territory. It includes a manor house, two-bedroom/two-and-a-half bath guest house, stone bank barn, woodworking shop, tractor storage, two-stall stable, two-story stone office/man cave, smokehouse/tool storage. Sixty protected acres surrounded by hundreds of acres also in easement. In-ground pool with Blue Ridge views.
You can go trail riding on your own grounds. Not bad at all. However no indoor arena and I would need more than a two stall stable. But it is beautiful in beautiful riding country. See more pictures.
Or I could just stay in Holland. I sort of like it here. I could move, and I could enjoy it very much elsewhere, but I have no need to move, no wonder lust anymore so to speak. I saw this absolutely beautiful farmhouse decorated in such a way that I could live there without any problem. Old house with lots of character. And cheaper than the houses in the US. But it only has fields and stables. No riding arena indoor or outdoor. Close to the woods, so you can ride outside. It is just a very beautiful farmhouse. Click here for the pictures.
The nice thing is, that such wonderful properties exist. So even though I do not live there, I can enjoy them by seeing them on the internet.
