Ridgefield's Double H Farm Is For Sale and It's an Equestrian's Dream

Ridgefield's Double H farm sits on 87 acres and includes world-class equestrian facilities.In Ridgefield, Double H Farm sits on a high, 87-acre spread along the New York state border. The circa-1765 property was once owned by a Canadian railroad tycoon, who turned an existing dairy farm into a world-class equestrian facility, now offering two barns with more than 40 stalls, four grooming and wash stalls, staff apartments, a riding ring and a jumping course. The owners made a name for themselves with their stallions, jumpers and hunters. But even for non-horse-fanciers, Double H appeals with its 14,5000-square-foot, green-technology main house. The living room, for instance, has 38-foot-high ceilings, a massive limestone fireplace and exposed barn-beam scaffolding. The master suite is equally grand with its 20-foot domed ceilings, another fireplace, a marble bathroom and even a safe room. Additional amenities include a golf room with a simulator, a wine cellar and mahogany decks with stone fire pits. Sally Slater of Douglas Elliman Real Estate represents the listing (price upon request).

The main house is 14,500 square feet. Wood beams add a rustic feel to the double-height great room. A dramatic fireplace anchors the sitting room.
