Greenwich has a long list of compelling reasons why generations of families have laid down roots here, and why newcomers from all over the world choose the town as their new home. There are the relatively low property taxes, the proximity to New York City, the incredible shoreline, coveted schools and world-class dining, shopping and recreation. What some may not know about Greenwich is that it is also home to some of the most impressive equestrian properties in the greater Northeast, with miles of horse trails to enjoy, thanks to the Greenwich Riding & Trails Association (GRTA). \u201cWhether you are a competitive show rider or a recreational rider, Greenwich offers some of the most beloved trails and equestrian farms,\u201d Sotheby\u2019s Realtor Yashmin Lloyds said. \u201cThe Greenwich Riding and Trails Association protects and maintains an historic trail system that runs throughout different preserves in Greenwich.\u201d Lloyds listed 62 Sterling Road in Greenwich for $3.5 million. She described the property as a \u201cquintessential country residence, with a perfect environment for an active outdoor lifestyle \u2014 and only 17 minutes to downtown Greenwich!\u201d The elegantly designed six-bedroom colonial is sited on a private lane, on a 4.12-acre lot. \u201cFor a riding enthusiast, 62 Sterling Road is in an ideal location,\u201d Lloyds suggested. \u201cBuilt in 2008, this 10,008-square-foot home offers all the modern amenities, with access to the breathtaking 330-acre Audubon Nature Preserve. Additionally, the riding trail network runs through the Greenwich Land Trust property that is directly adjacent to this home.\u201d Walk-ons welcome Lin Lavery, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Greenwich, represents the owners of 282 Taconic Road \u2014 listed for $3.35 million. Lavery describes the six-bedroom, 5,790-square-foot country home on 4.25 acres as being \u201cdesigned for entertaining and comfortable living.\u201d It also may appeal to buyers in this price range who may enjoy the utility of living right next to a Greenwich Riding & Trails Association-maintained path. Part of Greenwich\u2019s Stanwich Historic District, the setting for this home is \u201cbeautiful and quiet, and yet a neighborhood,\u201d Lavery explained. She cited an annual pot-luck event the neighbors enjoy, and though the current owners of 282 Taconic Road haven\u2019t kept horses, nearby neighbors has horses on site and absolutely enjoy having access to Greenwich\u2019s riding trails. By creating an opening in a wall along the perimeter of the property, the next residents of 282 Taconic Road will be able to walk or ride right onto the trails, too. \u201cWhether you are walking with your dogs or are on horseback, it\u2019s a wonderful country experience,\u201d the listing Realtor said. \u201cIt\u2019s part of what makes Greenwich great. As you walk or ride, you will come upon a beautiful lake and waterfall.\u201d Combined, one-of-a-kind equestrian estate Jennifer Leahy, a Realtor with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, is representing the seller of both 35 Farwell Lane and 50 Lafrentz Road, adjacent properties that are being sold as an impressive, combined equestrian estate or as two separate luxury properties. At 35 Farwell Lane, the Partridge Hollow estate comprises a custom-built center hall colonial on 5.47 acres. At the back of the property, a staircase leads to the adjacent 25.30-acre Sandswept Hill Farm at 50 Lafrentz Road, which affords an outdoor riding ring, one eight-stall barn and another with two stalls and abundance of storage space. Among the acreage are three building lots, which could be used to build another luxury residence or additional outbuildings. Plus, there\u2019s the added perk of being able to access the GRTA\u2019s trail system from the property.
