About This Property

In achieving the peak rural idyll, 4480 Michener Road offers everything to the equestrian, the farmer, the entertainer, the nature lover, the seeker of peace and tranquility.

Tucked into the triangle of Ridgeway, Stevenville and Crystal Beach, this 51.5 acre estate offers over 40 acres of workable land for planting, proximity to nature conservancy, equestrian-friendly surroundings, and genteel contemporary living.

In the house, visitors will find warm and inviting post-and-beam influences, natural finishes in hardwoods, granite, stone facing, and endless windows to join indoors with outdoors. The entry hall is gracious, allowing for choice of moving into formal dining, casual great room seating or the main floor office. Access from the 2-car garage comes into the main house via a large laundry/mud room, and the kitchen breakfast area enjoys patio door and window wall views over the deck to the pastures and beyond. Offering ample counters, breakfast bar, gas range, double wall ovens and all stainless appliances, there's room for the most enthusiastic culinary pursuits and entertaining.

The main floor master includes a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, water closet, spacious waterfall open shower enclosure and a jetted tub sited to enjoy views to outside.

Following the wrought iron and wood staircase to the upper level, 4 bedrooms and a full bath provide plenty of room for family and friends. Deep closets in each room, generously sized and warmly finished, comfort and ease are tucked into every corner.

Outside, choices abound. The gated driveway leads past the house on meticulously-kept gravel/screening roadways; take your pick of the best of work or play.

Head for the 8-stall barn, classically fashioned with animal comfort and safety in mind. Wooden and slippage-reducing rough surface interlock floors anchor the stalls, tack/feed room and mezzanine hay storage. Mindfully placed openings maximize air flow throughout the entire building, there is water storage inside and the stalls are 11' x 12' x 11 1/2', large enough for a mare and foal or draft horse in each.

Leading from the barn, three newly-fenced pastures quickly link to the 60' x 120' Megadome arched riding arena. Sunk onto 8' x 2' poles and a 2' gravel base covered by 16” of zoological sand, this excellently turned out building is the perfect setup for jumping and barrel racing. No more depending on the elements to dictate riding practice!

Dry buildings that serve and house working agricultural/mechanical equipment is a true find, and the shop on this property is second to none. The automotive side boasts a 9000 lb. Atlas automotive lift, enough square footage and a tool storage wall that would make any automotive professional envious. The agricultural side includes two 16x18 -high overhead doors, industrial racking, work benches, high overhead clearance and 2400 sqft of concrete for equipment storage.

The dugout pond is home to a number of fish, turtles and amphibians, and is visited regularly by local waterfowl and migratory birds. This property backs onto the famous Friendship Trail, which plays host to two and four-footed visitors year-round. Set on a reclaimed rail line, the Trail sees deer, fox and other local wildlife as well as walkers, cyclists, cross-country skiers and snowshoers.

While rural, Michener Road enjoys proximity to local cultural happenings with sailing and yacht clubs nearby, farm-to-table restaurants, decor stores, spas, bakeries, art shops and dining overlooking the lake, village markets, and summer festivals. Claiming 660 ft road frontage, the house is set far enough back so as not to hear the road noise, but one can hear pleasure craft on Lake Erie, and the music from Crystal Beach's concert series can often be heard while relaxing in the hot tub on a summer evening. This is truly an incomparable blend of privacy, serenity, and amenity.
