Majestic 466-Acre Equestrian Estate Known as Sugar Maple Farm Asks $15M
Sugar Maple Farm may sound like a small, charming maple syrup farm somewhere in Vermont, but in fact it is an esteemed thoroughbred estate in Poughquag, New York. Still ultra sweet with 466 acres and an 18,000-square-foot main house fit for royalty, the sweeping property has trotted onto the market asking $15 million.
This expansive estate with a thoroughbred training and boarding facility is certainly no small operation. With seven barns, a total of 94 horse stalls, houses for the managers, and apartments for staff, it’s a hive of activity with beautiful surroundings.
Down a long driveway in a secluded spot on a pond, the property owner’s Georgian manor offers a private retreat to take in the pastoral setting. With soaring columns and a brick façade, it seems like the home has been there forever, but it was only built in 1980. The rooms further this sense of history, however, with traditional and ornate style. It looks as if it were designed for ritzy horse racing parties, complete with big hats and champagne.
The mega-mansion is bursting with splendor, but the home’s fun-factor is not to be forgotten. The lower level holds an indoor swimming pool, sauna, billiards rooms, wet bar, half-basketball court, and much more, while a tennis court also sits right next to the home. The new owner can stay as active and engaged as the thoroughbreds acres away.
