One regular feature in The Week magazine is called “Best Properties on the Market”; it consists of half a dozen or so very special real-estate offerings on a two-page spread, with a photo or two and listing information. I’ve even gotten blogfodder out of it once or twice.
This week’s collection was titled Equestrian properties.
Um, no. No. Not even. No es posible, señor.
You’re looking at Valentine Farm near Norwood, Colorado, and here’s some of the write-up from the listing agent:
Certain properties exude excellence the minute you step foot on them. Valentine Farm defines itself as such a ranch. Comprised of a meticulously renovated turn-of-the-century Barn, two remodeled turn-of-the-century cabins and separate 6-car garage, this idyllic compound overlooks 120 verdant acres including a magnificent 10 stall equestrian center with caretaker residence.
But this is the clincher (emphasis added):
Two generous sized ponds and prolific irrigation create a lush setting and provide perfect conditions for significant hay production.
Well, there you have it. The sellers are asking $4,375,000. Celestia only knows how much that is in bits.
