If the property at 4 Fox Ridge in Pequea seems like a horse-lover’s dream, that’s because it was carefully designed by a horse-loving couple.

“It’s very relaxing here and it’s very quiet,” the owner says. “We’re kind of at the top of the valley, so there’s beautiful views off the back porch.”

Those views include not only the valley beyond this charming 3.3-acre farm, but also the farm’s two pastures and horse barn.

“The barn was built in such a way so we could sit on our back porch and enjoy the views of the horses in the pasture and the views of the barn,” he says.

That covered back porch with a view is just one of many outstanding features in this meticulously maintained one-and-a-half-story, stone veneer and brick home custom built by local builder David Alexander.

This horse-lover’s gem now awaits a new owner. Anne Lusk of Lusk & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty is the listing agent.

High ceilings, transom windows and an expansive design give the home a spacious and open feeling throughout — and a geothermal heating system ensures it remains cozy and energy efficient.

From the living room with rounded wall and custom, granite-faced gas fireplace to the formal dining room with tray ceiling, back-lit lighting and large windows, the home offers plenty of inviting living spaces.

The kitchen is a home cook’s dream, with granite countertops, tile backsplash, large Amish-made island, custom cherry cabinets by Oxford Cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.

A bright breakfast nook includes two entry doors: one to the backyard deck and the other to the sidewalk and driveway.

Designed for one-story living, the home includes a first-floor owner’s suite with spacious bedroom, sizable walk-in closet and double closet, and a window overlooking the side pasture. The private owner’s bath features an oversized walk-in tile shower and granite double-bowl sink with custom Amish-made cabinets.

The first floor also has an additional bedroom as well as a full bath with tub/shower combo.

The second floor features two more bedrooms with skylights, a full bath with walk-in shower and crank-out skylight, and a huge loft area with endless possibilities.

The possibilities continue in the unfinished lower level, which stretches the length of the home and includes a walk-out entrance and large workshop area. The garage has plenty of room for multiple cars or farm vehicles.

The architectural beauty continues in the immaculate Amish-built horse barn with its stained-wood interior, making clear that accommodations for the horses were just as thoughtfully designed. The barn features four large box stalls, a heated tack room, wash stall with floor drain and rubber matting, Dutch doors, wall-mounted fans and much more.

“It’s more like a gentleman’s barn than it is just a barn,” the owner says, noting they hosted a wedding on the property that included high tables in the barn among the horse stalls.

In addition to the barn, the beautifully landscaped property includes an 80-by-60 riding ring built just off the barn. The two pasture areas have a total of seven gates with three-wood rail fencing surround.

Nearby Climber’s Run Nature Preserve makes it easy to take horses for a leisurely trail ride.

With over 3,000 square feet of living space, the home is priced at $795,000.

The property at 4 Fox Ridge is in the Penn Manor School District.
