The A1 (agriculturally zoned) farm boasts a professionally installed 150X240 Shell/Bluestone riding arena that is fully stadium lit with high end Hypericon LED lights and outdoor speakers equipped with XM satellite radio (radio/speakers are also in the barn). Arena construction was complete by Premier Earth Shaping & Pope Ethridge in March 2017. The arena is maintained weekly with a professional ABI TR3-E series drag. Overlooking the full size jump arena is a 12X12 pergola style viewing platform elevated 6 ft off the ground. To add to the already impressive arena, Flying R has 2 professionally graded and lighted 60ft round pens, with drains and bluestone footing. One of which was just completed early 2018.
The barn has 6 full 12X12 matted stalls, with 4 of them having 12X16 stall runs, with a bluestone base. All have French drains extending from the backs to keep the runs fully functional in less than deseriable weather. All sides of the barn roof are equipped with new gutters and fully functional rain barrels with filters and spigots. Inside washstall with seamless shower walls and tankless hot water heater. 12X12 climate controlled tack room with 10 heavy duty English/western saddle racks, over 20 bridle hooks and a fully functional front loading, large capacity washer and Kinetico water filtration system. Barn exterior was fully repainted and new front and back custom barn doors installed in spring 2018. All new Hyperikon LED lights installed in barn breezeway and in each stall and wash rack (installed in 2018). New agriculture VES caged fans just mounted in each stall, summer of 2018. The property houses four pastures with 3-planked/horse fencing with functioning hotwire running the top rail in every pasture. Pastures have been reseeded annually with both summer grass and winter rye. There is also a separate smaller pasture/enclosure for goats or livestock. Two, permanent, 12X16 chain linked chicken coops attached to the back side of the barn with matching roof, large dog house, roosting ladders and laying boxes; coops are functional and ready to go! For feed storage, Flying R has a 45 ft, moisture sealed, storage container that keeps all feed in perfect, pest free conditions (will covey with property). Ample trailer parking and driveway was widened in 2018 to accommodate extra large trailers/rigs.
*With added permission granted by the Saddlehorn community, Flying R has a custom bridge access off the main arena, to 2 shaded miles of bridlepath. No ATV’s are legally allowed, bridlepath is for equine use ONLY. A great way to hack out and get exercise done outside of the arena!
The home is a 2,600 sf (in a 2017 inspection, additional footage was recorded), desirable brick ranch that was renovated in 2007 and also includes a large new addition in a cherry hard wood that boasts massive custom covered windows for viewing the barn and backyard. The home has 4 bed/3.5 bath. In spring 2018, the entire crawl space was renovated and moisture sealed with dehumidifiers installed for added protection from the harsh Virginia weather.

You will NOT find a more custom, turn-key, equestrian home ready to be used immediately, in the Hampton Roads area, in this price bracket! The farm can be used as income for a small boarding facility or offering lessons on site. Home is appropriately zoned for such endeavors. The pride of ownership in this farm is unsurpassed, no detail overlooked!
*Jumps and tractor (along with implements) do NOT covey unless a price can be negotiated upon, as we are moving to another larger farm.
