Rolling hills and natural foliage create the perfect backdrop for this expansive equestrian retreat set in the community of Murrieta. Conveniently located between San Diego County and Desert horse shows and encompassing nearly 84 acres of prime ranch land, this property offers a variety of opportunities for multiple disciplines. Enter through the gates of this private compound and meander past two sparkling fish-stocked ponds to the grand entrance of the 40-stall barn. Complete with offices, meeting rooms, and staff suites, it has all the infrastructure in place to manage the day-to-day operations.

Known as a premier sport-horse facility, the spectacular features of this property offer endless possibilities. There is a 1/2- mile racetrack fine-tuned by Santa Anita’s Richard Tedesco, 100’ x 300’ jumping arena with custom footing, 40-stall barn with watchman quarters, loft & office space plus an inside walking arena with breeding facility. For training young horses there is a 50’ round-pen with observation tower and a European-style walking ring for daily exercise. Horse rehabilitation is made possible by vibration plate and Aquatread water treadmill. With 27 covered sand pens with lighting and 23 turnouts, both grass and sand, in various sizes, there is plenty of room to board and care for horses year-round or keep them comfortable while attending an on-site event.

Listed by Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, the listing team is comprised of luxury agents Jennifer Teuton, Cathy Gilchrist-Colmar, and Kathleen Gelcich, all known for their expertise, integrity, diligence, and concierge customer service. Avid horse riders, Cathy and Kathleen have been selling equestrian properties for years and, partnered with Jennifer, are excited to launch the marketing of this amazing estate. As Cathy notes, “Some properties only work for one kind of discipline but here you have an incredible opportunity to customize it for whatever you desire. Create cross country courses, set up for dressage, jumping, or western pleasure venues, or enhance the existing facilities to host large scale clinics or practice horse shows - there is room for it all! The possibilities are endless.”
The operational aspects of the property include a massive utility garage fully outfitted for performing routine maintenance on ranch equipment and comes complete with an attached groundskeeper apartment. The main residence (manager’s residence) sits high atop the southwest corner overlooking the whole estate and there is a graded pad above it which would be the ideal building site for a new home. Wells provide water for the ponds and property.

Kathleen appreciates the convenient, central So-Cal location. “You can’t beat this location for its proximity to multiple horse shows and venues. The Del Mar Race Track and San Anita Race Track are just under an hour and a half away and you have direct access to Palm Springs, San Diego, Los Angeles, Tijuana, and Joshua Tree.”
An expert in luxury homes, Jennifer admires the overall design of the exquisite living spaces. “The vaulted ceilings, vast windows, and numerous fireplaces give  light and warmth throughout and the perfect atmosphere for conducting business or relaxing at the end of a hard day.”
The entire team agrees that seeing this property was love at first sight. “The landscape is mesmerizing and as a team we really share the vision of the life and excitement that this property offers for the equestrian.”
