A unique turn-key equestrian property was recently listed by Douglas Elliman and already has a contract signed. The 71.34-acre property was built in 2020 and is ready for a new owner. The property has numerous special features that make it one of the most unique properties on the market. The property is located at 1200 Rockgate Rd. Bartonville, in Denton County and is listed for $15.9 million.
The Rockgate Equestrian Center is positioned near Grapevine Lake and Lewisville Lake and is a short drive to Dallas’ cultural and entertainment opportunities. DFW Airport is about 25 minutes away, making this an ideal property for an owner who must regularly fly in and out of the state.
The property features a custom-built home that measures more than 8,000 square feet and provides stunning views from every room. The house was designed to maximize opportunities for the owner to enjoy the scenic, sweeping views of the property and features floor-to-ceiling windows in most rooms.
A professionally-designed media room offers entertainment options, while a three-car garage and full workshop provide opportunities for automotive enthusiasts and craftsmen.
The main house includes extensive opportunities for outdoor living, including a stunning pool with a spa and an indoor/outdoor lounging area on the carefully manicured grounds. The main house features four bedrooms, four and one-half bathrooms, and numerous areas for gatherings and family.
The kitchen is completely modern while evoking the spirit of country living with shaker-style cabinets and a below-mount farmhouse-style sink. Freestanding tubs and floor-to-ceiling windows make even the most utilitarian spaces luxurious.
The real star of this property is the equestrian center. The center is fully prepared for professional breeding, boarding, and training of horses. Some of the most impressive aspects of this special property are the 24 oversized horse stalls in the custom-designed barn. The barn also includes six wash-and-tack racks, a massive feed room, and specific spaces for trainer’s tack and boarder’s tack.
The property is designed to be a working facility and provides housing for equestrian staff, trainers, and lockers. Each locker uses an electric lock so that individual owners may have access to their horses and equipment without accessing other personal property. Individual fans and fly control measures provide ideal housing conditions, while separate viewing areas make it easy for boarder’s to visit their horses.
The property features both covered and open arenas for showing and training, along with a cross-country training track and various other opportunities to provide training and exercise options for horses. The property is perfectly designed to accommodate a full-scale equestrian operation.
About 50 acres of the property is developed to provide equestrian facilities and includes 14-acre turnouts to facilitate access. Additionally, 20 acres of the property have been kept wild and untouched. The virgin land is used for beekeeping, a lucrative business opportunity with environmental improvement advantages. Ponds and trails around the property offer numerous opportunities to enjoy natural Texas.
