Picture your dream yard. And then raise your expectations a little higher. And you might get to something that resembles Jupiter Equestrian Estate in Florida.
This equestrian haven — which is for sale with Sotheby’s International Realty — is set in 50 acres in South Florida.
For a mere $22,900,000 (£14,873,000) your horses can kick back in the eight stables and eight paddocks — while you can take your pick from the eight bedrooms.
And after a hard day in the saddle, you can look forward sinking into a bath overlooking the four-acre private lake and the stables, going for dip in the heated saltwater pool or delving into the 1,000-bottle wine room.
If hurricanes are a worry, you can rest in the knowledge that the main house, guest house, and barn were built to exceed Miami/Dade hurricane specifications with impact glass and reinforced rebar concrete roofs, walls, and floors, and multiple generators.
The equestrian facilities include a sizeable arena and riding trails that wind through cypress and pine trees and pass by the internationally acclaimed Dye Preserve Golf Course on the western boundary of the property.
To explore further afield, you can make the most of the surrounding 20,000 acres of nature preserves with access to more riding trails, parks, and community trails.
When you feel like sitting back and admiring your equestrian empire, the observation lounge and terrace will provide you with the perfect view.
And the best part? The sun shines in Florida.
