Ridgefield's Double H Farm Is For Sale and It's an Equestrian's Dream
In Ridgefield, Double H Farm sits on a high, 87-acre spread along the New York state border. The circa-1765 property was once owned by a Canadian railroad tycoon, who turned an existing dairy farm into a world-class equestrian facility, now offering two barns with more than 40 stalls, four grooming and wash stalls, staff apartments, a riding ring and a jumping course. The owners made a name for themselves with their stallions, jumpers and hunters. But even for non-horse-fanciers, Double H appeals with its 14,5000-square-foot, green-technology main house. The living room, for instance, has 38-foot-high ceilings, a massive limestone fireplace and exposed barn-beam scaffolding. The master suite is equally grand with its 20-foot domed ceilings, another fireplace, a marble bathroom and even a safe room. Additional amenities include a golf room with a simulator, a wine cellar and mahogany decks with stone fire pits.
