Another great horse farm in Southern Pines Horse Country
While I will be writing about MANY wonderful horse farms, equestrian estates and spectacular training facilities and barns around the country, I feel as though I need to share more about the horse farms in this special place I call HOME first!
Do you know what a HUNT BOX is? As I show property to many folks from around the world, when I ask them if they know what a “hunt box” is, many say “WHAT?” The term ‘hunt box” originated in England and refers to a home used during hunting season, be it fox or other game…in our area in was fox. In the southern U.S., it often means living quarters built above a stable. To live above your horses?
REALLY? Think about it…when northerners came down to “winter” here and brought their horses with them for three or four months of the year to get out of the brutal winters of the northeast…it was much easier and cost efficient to build smaller apartments above their barns. Why build two buildings when you can build just one?
Over the years, this style of living has caught on in many places in the country but the “apartments” have become grand abodes! Enjoy this tour of a Hunt Box called Royal Fox Farm that I have listed here in Horse Country…
Welcome to Royal Fox Farm, nestled on 11+ acres with lush pastures in one of the most private locations at Pine Ridge Farms. This amazing farm was custom built in 2015 and has all of the features one would expect in a quality built farm. Three large bedrooms, an open concept floor plan and five European style stalls are just waiting for you! One of the most unique features about Royal Fox Farm is that it is surrounded by the Walthour Moss foundation’s North Country.
This part of the foundation is amongst the most private and offers over 1500 acres of winding trails, beautiful lakes, sandy trails and a very tranquil setting to hack your horses through. In addition, Pine Ridge Farms offers a unique equestrian community with its own trails and lakes where horses can even swim in the common lakes! It is truly a community like no other in the Southern Pines area. When done riding, head to lunch, dinner or one of the fun pubs or breweries in downtown Southern Pines which is only minutes away. Come home to Royal Fox Farm…you may never want to leave! Listed at only $950,000!!
