Montana Ranch Lifestyle in Suburban Connecticut

Horse stallsHDRtist HDR Rendering - the Greater Fairfield County MLS, there are only two residential homes listed for sale in Fairfield County that have over 100 acres, and only one of them is a state-of-the-art equestrian paradise. Quiet Lake Estate is located on 128 acres in Wilton and New Canaan, and features one the nicest horse-riding facilities you will ever see: an 8,000 sq. ft., 11-stall barn constructed of the finest mahogany with interiors of rare butternut wood. It has one bedroom, five bathrooms, a granite kitchen, and an entertaining room, complete with a wall of glass windows overlooking a serene 10-foot waterfall behind the facility. Outside there are 5 miles of riding trails, a 295-by-85-foot riding arena, seven paddocks, and a one-third-of-a-mile trotter track. For those who like to fish, hike or swim, there are also two freshwater lakes, a pond, a fully-stocked trout stream, and a free-form swimming pool with waterfall.

The main residence is a spectacular 10,000-square-foot Tudor-style mansion with 11 bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a 2,000-bottle wine cellar, and two-bedroom staff quarters. There are two 2,000-square-foot guest cottages on the property, each with three additional bedrooms. There’s even two helicopter landing sites, with New York City just an 18 minute flight away.
