One of the most established horse farms in America is up for sale for $5.83 million.
The historic property, located in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, is the last remnant of a 280-acre estate built for the prominent Vanderbilt family.
The building, known as the Sandy Point Stables, was designed by architect A.S. Walker.
Construction began in 1860 and was completed only 42 years later, in 1902.
At its peak, the farm was used as “the epicenter of society during the summer social season,” the listing notes.
It belonged to Reginald Claypool Vanderbilt, the son of Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his fortune in railroads and shipping.
Reginald was the grandfather of CNN journalist Anderson Cooper. An avid equestrian and sportsman, he was a horse breeder and spared no expense in establishing breeding.
He grew up at The Breakers, his family home in Newport, Rhode Island.
The structure features main beams, 24-stall stables, a 15,000-square-foot indoor riding arena, groom quarters, and a guest lounge.
It is being sold with three different adjacent lots covering nearly 6 acres and over 30,000 square feet combined.
Kylie McCollough and Judy Chace of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty are holding the listing.
“Sandy Point Farm is an opportunity for a new manager to own an important piece of Rhode Island’s cultural and architectural history,” McCollough told The Post.
“This irreplaceable trophy represents one of the greatest eras in American equestrianism.”
