Courtyard Farm, a 31-acre property that sits on the Bedford Riding Lanes Trails, is for sale.
Built in 1904 as a country estate, the original barn was destroyed by fire in 1970. Owner Kristen Carollo restored the property, acquired 27 horses—17 of them ponies—and developed an equestrian business that specializes in teaching riding to young children.
Now Carollo is selling the equestrian facility—downsizing to a smaller barn in Bedford but retaining the farm's name and operations. She told Patch she'd like to focus on her own business without serving as a landlord to the large number of stall stables currently connected to the farm.
The state-of-the-art stone barn was reconstructed in 2004 to include 38 stalls, indoor and outdoor wash stalls, an outdoor ring and indoor riding arena. There's a client viewing lounge with bath, 11 paddocks, a tack room, groom's quarters with four bedrooms and two baths, a studio apartment and a four bedroom, three bath owner/trainer residence.
