Summerwood sits in the scenic foothills between Grass Valley and Auburn. With two houses, 37 stalls, multiple arenas and over 40 acres, it was designed as a state of the art equestrian facility for Breeders and Trainers. Considerable thought was given to the layout and materials used on the 40 acres to provide an optimal environment for both horse and human. This maximizes safety and convenience and minimizes the cost of maintenance.
The lighted Arena Barn, large enough to serve as a full-size dressage court, has a footing of combined sand, "Airfoot" and rubber pieces. It features 25 stalls measuring either 12' x 16' or 16' x 20,' each with rubber mats and exterior windows that open and close for ventilation. A ridge vent in the roof further facilitates ventilation while the clear plastic between the roof and stalls lets in abundant light. Safety and comfort for horses is further enhanced with extra-wide aisles, four grooming areas, two stall rubber-matted wash rack areas with hot water and 11 irrigated private turnout paddocks. For the owners and their clients, there is the convenience of an office, bathroom, laundry, seating areas with table and chairs, plenty of parking and a circular road for easy loading and unloading. The speaker system and the spectacular views across the pond to the hillsides beyond make this a perfect setting for parties.
Further facilities include a Mare Hotel and Foaling Barn, each with 6 stalls, two 60' round pens ( one covered), a four horse automatic Hot Walker (with safety shut-off), 21 large irrigated pastures (18 with shelters) and 40' wide hacking trails throughout the property. There is sufficient land to separate mares and foals, yearlings, two year old and older horses. Adjacent to the main covered arena is an additional outdoor arena, about 100' x 200'. with a sand and rubber footing. Throughout the property are miles of white, predominantly PVC, 3 and 4 rail fencing. This is low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing.
The two homes that sit at the top of the property, near the Foaling Barn, were designed for indoor/outdoor living. The large number of windows and doors enhances this and allow access to the tremendous views of the valley, and abundant wildlife. Both homes are over 2,600 square feet and were designed for comfortable, modern living with low maintenance. Both feature two large bedrooms with exterior doors and an office. They include jetted tubs and large stand-alone showers. Both have wood and granite or marble floors (no carpet) and kitchens with an easy flow, and high-end Dacor and Bosch appliances. They each have two gas fireplaces, exterior covered patios, interior and patio sound systems, central vacuum systems, and attached three car garages.
Water is provided through a combination of two wells and a substantial allotment from the local water district for irrigation purposes available from April 15-October 15th. Access to Summerwood is straightforward. It is approximately 17 miles from Auburn and Grass Valley, and 60-80 minutes from Sacramento International Airport. The highly regarded U.C. David School of Veterinary Medicine is nearby for the care of illness and injury, including surgery. It is approximately 90 minutes away.
With its peaceful setting and spectacular views, Summerwood provides an ideal opportunity with state of the art facilities for Breeder or Trainer.
