This could be your new dream home!

40-acre Washington luxury property appeals to equestrians, preppers and more

Do you thrive on outdoor pursuits, have an interest in professional equestrian opportunities and desire residential luxury and comfort?

It might seem unusual to find all of these features and more in one residential property, but then again, this private 40-acre parcel between the cities of Yelm and Rainier is a unique recreational paradise.

The unparalleled main home, a single-storey 5,792-square-foot structure built into a natural hillside, has room for your large family or guests, with five bedrooms and 3-1/2 bathrooms. There’s plenty of parking/storage space in six garages – attached and detached – and a custom-built helipad is ready for those special guests to drop in.

But there’s also so much more!

Riding, training facilities a horse lover’s dream

The purpose-built, fenced equestrian center is set up to facilitate training, showing, exercising, riding, dressage and jumping. With numerous paddocks, Olympic-sized riding arena with specialized composite footing, hot walking exerciser, caretaker’s living quarters and more, it provides potential business opportunities or a chance to explore your own equestrian dreams, says Engel & Völkers Seattle Downtown broker Charla Oliver.

“I grew up and showed and trained horses my whole life, and these high-end training facilities for hunter-jumper and dressage horses would put any equestrian in horse heaven,” she says.

Here’s some other features of this amazing property:

  • The main home combines the use of high-end organic materials with the elegance of such elements as Italian Murano glass in the master bathroom, where you’ll also find an artist-created mosaic in the shower
  • A sunroom with in-ground swimming pool offers year-round entertainment options, with large skylight panels over the entire area
  • Several large greenhouses on the property feature a full irrigation system and provide opportunities for commercial growing and personal food production. An on-site organic composter allows for fast decomposition of manure and soil into nutrient rich fertilizer
  • A deluxe, two-storey treehouse built by the company featured in TV’s Treehouse Masters offers detached play time along with a comfortable sleepout option

Preppers take note

If being prepared for a natural disaster is also on your list, this property gets five gold stars. Off the main kitchen is a three-bedroom secure and sustainable underground living quarters, designed to withstand the eruption of Mount Rainier and more. And it’s filled with a year’s worth of food and supplies.

*****

Construction costs on this recreational estate were far more than the listed price of less than $5 million, making it a solid investment for the right purchaser, says Gabriel Ciuca, designated broker with Engel & Völkers Seattle Eastside. “It’s the lifestyle, being away from a populated area and having that sense of security.”
