You can have it all! Waters Edge Farm is a showcase horse farm with 36 rolling acres including a 3.5ac spring fed pond, located in a gated community in the heart of Lake Oconee, Georgia. Imagine building your dream home, and waking up to bucolic pond and farm views.
The 40x108 custom barn was built in 1997, and it’s everything a serious horse person would want. 13 matted stalls with swing out feeders, wash room, tack room and lockers, feed room, large main level office with adjoining full bath, and upstairs boarder’s lounge and full kitchen overlooking the riding rings.
Most recently used as a hunter/jumper training facility, facilities include a 150x250 lighted arena, plus 20x40 meter dressage ring, 60ft round pen, indoor and outdoor wash racks, and 8 turnout paddocks, plus larger fields - more than 8,000lf of painted four board fencing in all. The ring footing is packed clay base with sand, typical for the area. There’s also a multi-purpose building that includes two more stalls, an open bay for equipment storage, plus a workshop.
The 1650sf 3 bedroom/2 bath trainer’s cottage is a bonus. Built in 1985, but recently renovated, the great room features a vaulted ceiling with wood beams and fireplace plus well designed kitchen with breakfast bar. You’ll like the split bedroom floor plan - the master has an ensuite bath.
The 36 acres is primarily open, with rolling land dotted with hardwoods. The private spring fed pond is about 3.5 acres, and an irrigation pump draws water for landscaping. With about 1100ft of road frontage on Wards Chapel Road, and more than 1200 ft on Waters Edge Drive, you can locate your new home anywhere you choose. Need more land? A fenced 10 acre tract across the street is available.
