345-acre property features rare combination of amenities including equestrian farm, golf course, chapel and more
Sterling, Conn. – October 6, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a unique country estate known as Falls Creek Farm. The extensive Sterling, Conn. property, which includes an equestrian farm, private golf course, chapel and more, is listed with Essex agent Chad Kimerer, and offered at $4,500,000.
The 345-acre estate has previously served as a horse farm, sportsman club and farm under various owners since the late 1600s. Falls Creek Farm was established in 1987, and today boasts extensive renovations to the main residence and other residential dwellings, as well as improvements to the top-notch facilities offered on the grounds. Surrounded by the Pachaug State Forest on three sides, with its western half resting on the Connecticut-Rhode Island state line, the estate includes over 240 undeveloped acres of evergreens, woodlands, pastoral land, open fields and dirt roads.
The six-bedroom, eight-bath main residence is divided into three sections: the left wing, which includes a luxurious master suite that opens to a rose garden, exercise room, home office and adjacent conference room; a central area providing spacious living areas with fine features and custom details; and the right wing, which contains three guest suites with full baths leading to an indoor/outdoor entertainment area with an infinity pool, full wet bar, lounge area and conservatory. A 1,200 square-foot patio overlooking the property’s pristine English garden, stone walls and manicured lawn completes this space. The estate additionally offers a log cabin-style guest lodge, which enjoys a scenic setting adjacent to a barn, ponds, open fields and multiple paddocks. The 2,500 square-foot living space includes three bedrooms and two full baths, featuring a light-filled interior with superior craftsmanship throughout.
Falls Creek Farm’s world-class equestrian facility features a 15,855 square-foot main stable that contains 17 heated indoor stalls, 12 additional outdoor stalls that are used seasonally, a 60-foot interior round pen arena and more. An indoor arena boasting 18,000 square feet of space and approximately 100 stalls, in addition to a lounge/restaurant, bleachers, announcer’s booth and concession area, completes the professional horse property. The farm serves as host to Quarter Horse shows, as well as its own independently run shows, drawing in thousands of skilled equestrians each year.
“The sporting opportunities and recreational capabilities of this incredible country estate are simply incomparable,” said Kimerer. “A vast amount of thought and loving care has gone into the outstanding additions and renovations of the property throughout the years, making for a one-of-a-kind residential, recreational and professional opportunity that I am honored to represent.”
The chapel consists of an ancient architectural structure constructed by local artisans who collected materials resembling gothic design, as well as granite corner stones salvaged from local mills and natural fieldstone. Features include white oak beams, a quarried slate tile roof, large cathedral windows, an entryway complete with granite columns, 16 old oak pews acquired from a church in Pennsylvania and other custom details. The chapel project was completed in 2007, and can hold approximately 100 people for meetings and ceremonies on its main floor.
Three single-family homes, a two-family duplex, industrial building and 9-hole golf course complete the estate.
