If you’re a native of Washington State and the Puget Sound, you’ve probably got a few cherished memories from your youth: black coffee on cold winter mornings, the sound of rain pattering on the roof, crackling wood stoves, waves of mist rolling over a sea of pine trees at dusk. While such memories are wonderful, it’s likely that the myriad responsibilities of the adult world have pushed them back into the recesses of your brain. Setting foot on the Monroe Equestrian property, however, allows the once-forgotten sounds, smells, and sights of a Washington childhood to once again flood back into the present.
Hidden in a lush undergrowth of pine forest, and commanding a view of five immaculate acres, the Monroe Equestrian property is the classic custom Washington home. The house’s rustic wood paneling mimics the stately trees clustered around it and, while the dense foliage creates a sense of protection and security, expansive and wandering lawns give the property plenty of breathing space. A gazebo affixed to the rear of the house overlooks the backyard, making it the perfect retreat for those fond of autumn mornings, bold coffee, and rustling newspapers.
The true charm of the property, however, lies in the horses. Tucked into the edge of the backyard’s treeline is a 5-stall barn with a hay loft, a riding arena with an asphalt base, three turnouts, and pastures with white vinyl and electric fencing. The Monroe Equestrian property is an ideal home for horses, providing plenty of healthy fresh air and room to run. Even better, imagine the therapeutic benefits of tending to horses on the weekends, or the cherished memories you’ll develop by teaching your kids how to ride after school. In that case, whether you’re an expert at horseback riding, or an intrepid newcomer to the equestrian world, this property is sure to satisfy all your needs.
While the Monroe Equestrian property takes you back to the fading world of the wild Washington frontier, don’t be fooled; the house is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and the modern comforts of over 2,500 square feet of living space, walk-in closets, and a continental bathroom. Additionally, the property’s location in Monroe allows you to easily commute to work in Seattle or the surrounding suburbs, especially Redmond and Woodinville. Moreover, the town of Monroe has plenty of exciting attractions: visitors can enjoy scenic walks on the trails of Al Borlin Park and then retire to Adam’s Twin River Brewing Company/Northwest Bistro for a pint of well-earned craft beer and a plate of local, sustainable, and organic burgers, steaks, and more. For more adventurous individuals, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has plenty of potential for weekend hiking and camping trips. In other words, the Monroe Equestrian property gives you the best of both worlds, combining a secluded retreat with access to the big city and modern conveniences.
Whether you’re an employee of Microsoft looking for a wilderness retreat, a lover of equestrian searching for a home for both your family and your horses, or a combination of the two, the Monroe Equestrian property is the ideal place to lay down roots and settle in. After all, you owe it to yourself to escape the frenzy of the rat race and rediscover the fresh scent of pine needles, the cold and clean air, and all the other magical qualities that make Washington home.
