Sotheby's International Realty - Cornwall, CT
Pinnacle Farm has reason to boast! Reportedly the largest post-and-beam structure built in North America in the 20th century, Pinnacle Farm has set the standard by which all horse facilities should be measured.
Nestled in a private valley in Cornwall, Connecticut, this country farm is located in a secluded setting on a dead-end road, with stone walls, ponds, and a stream hugged on three sides by State Forest. This magnificent site encompasses 140 +/- acres of pastures, hillsides, a splendid home site, and scenic views stretching out toward New York and Massachusetts, with New York City within two hours.
Pinnacle Farm and the 65,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility has been home to some of the finest Friesian horses in the world. The owner's passion for equestrian properties is evident: From the Vet Lab to the Belebro Training Mill to the Farrier Area - no expense has been spared constructing this one-of-a-kind and exquisite horse facility.
