Occupying ten acres on the slopes above the upscale Pacific Coast enclave of Encinitas, California, this equestrian estate offers a turnkey operation in the heart of Southern California horse country. The property is just minutes from the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racetrack, a horse-racing circuit dating back to the 1930s that will host the 2017 Breeders’ Cup World Championships this November.
Equestrian amenities here include an 11-stall barn with tack room plus an outdoor jumping arena with a number of fenced pastures and areas for grazing. The property also offers easy access to a 30-mile network of trails that weave through Encinitas and beyond.
While positioned as a turnkey offering for equestrian aficionados, the 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home exudes luxury SoCal living to suit all tastes. Exposed roof beams, tiled flooring and wood-framed windows give the home the feel of a mountain lodge, while modern features include in-floor heating an outdoor pool and large chef’s kitchen. An additional guest lodge plus caretaker’s quarters provide additional accommodation and options for managing any on-property business.
According to the American Horse Council, California ranks only behind Texas as the state with the most horses in the country. There are an estimated nine million horses in the U.S., almost four million of which are kept for recreational use. Given its natural setting and mild climate, areas throughout the Greater San Diego region offer an ideal fit for enjoying the equestrian lifestyle.
