Raising the Barn
Robb Report Vacation Homes
Author: Nancy Wong Bryan
Uniting the leisurely advantages of horse ownership with vacation-home ownership, Cheval—located just outside Charlotte in Mint Hill, North Carolina—is a private resort community that features a 50-acre equestrian center with an 8,000-square-foot, 24-stall boarding barn. But for those who wish to keep their horses even closer to home, Cheval is now offering 12 estate homesites suitable for construction of private barns. Estate owners who choose to build a barn may use the community’s equine concierge services, which may include daily feedings, habitat management, grooming, exercise, and scheduling visits to the veterinarian or farrier. Such conveniences allow resident equestrians more time to enjoy the community’s pastoral setting and riding trails. Limited to 160 custom homes total, Cheval offers one to five-acre homesites starting at $130,000; homes are priced from $850,000 to $2.5 million.
