An equestrian estate in Connecticut found about 90 minutes from Manhattan is now on the market for $1.25 million. Located in the town of Sherman within the Housatonic Valley, the 10-acre Blue Bell Farm contains a nine-stall barn, riding ring, and a log cabin that serves as the cozy main residence. The quiet property is surrounded by 200 acres of protected land, adding to its peacefulness.

What looks like an old-school log cabin from the outside is actually a modern home. The three-bedroom property features crisp white walls, a nice contrast to the dark hardwood floors and beams found throughout.

The residence boasts high ceilings, a kitchen clad in marble, and two large stone fireplaces. A front porch with a swing makes the cabin even more picturesque.

On this first level, there is the main bedroom and full bathroom, a living room, and a laundry room. A cozy double-sided fireplace sits between the kitchen and living area.

Another bedroom with a full bath can be found on the second floor, in addition to flexible loft space. On the lower level, there’s a third bedroom and a multi-purpose room with another full bath, perfect for “in-laws, au pair, or barn staff,” according to the listing.

Outside of the home, the property includes a nine-stall barn that has a large heated tack room, bathroom with laundry, a wash stall, and hayloft with enough space for 3,000 bales of hay.

An apartment conversion is possible as the hayloft includes roughed-in plumbing and electricity. There are three additional stalls outside of the barn, a riding ring, and 12 paddocks.

Located near the New York border, the home sits near the Sherman Historic District and is just minutes from Candlewood Lake, the largest lake in the state of Connecticut. By car, the trip to Midtown Manhattan takes about 90 minutes.
