Farm Fetish

No matter the budget, searching for a new home is a stressful endeavor, and weighing wants versus needs can be incredibly challenging. Second floor laundry? His and hers closets? A six-stall barn and massive indoor arena on fifty acres of fully fenced bluegrass pastures with a manicured cross country course, situated next to a well-maintained trail system and twenty minutes from a major airport?

Including a house for horses on the wish list can take home buying complications to an exponential level. It was this conundrum (combined with a borderline unhealthy obsession with perusing picturesque stables online) that led us to develop Farm Fetish, in which we highlight equestrian properties across the country that are currently for sale…because we know first-hand that one needn’t be on the hunt for a horse property to enjoy a virtual stroll through one!
