On the market: A luxury residential and recreational estate, complete with polo farm.
Ashlawn 7484 North 49th Street
A luxury residential and recreational estate and polo farm, built in 2004, is on the market. Luscious green fields bordered by towering, century-old trees, the Ashlawn property rests at the base of Haystack Mountain, only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Boulder and 40 minutes from Denver.
Because of its magnitude and impeccable neo-classical architectural design, Ashlawn is one the most unique, high-end Front Range properties currently on the market.
Broker Associate at LIV Sotheby’s International Realty Josh McKinley explains, “The 118 acres comprised of polo fields, top-tiered equestrian facilities, guest house, caretakers’ quarters and a main house that looks like it was plucked out of a Georgian Manor and placed at the base of the Rocky Mountains enhance the uniqueness of the property. The homeowners were intentional with every detail, from having the main gate open slowly to create a feeling of slowing down and disengaging from the rest of the town.”
With five bedrooms, six baths, wood-burning fireplaces and an entire lower level designed to entertain, this grand home offers abundant room for family and friends to rest easily, including a state-of-the-art theatre, bar and pool room. Most room views include a glimpse of the championship polo field and elegant barn complex. And with more than 13,000 square feet of livable space, it’s a true masterpiece of luxury, grandeur and fun.
“Polo matches are played here throughout the summer, and the estate has housed professional polo players from around the world,” says McKinley.
The equestrian area is said to be inspired by the finest polo estates of Argentina.
McKinley adds, “The polo fields are also an FAA-approved runway. The seller has an affinity for flying as well as polo, which is evidenced by the million-dollar, commercial-grade flight simulator in the basement.”
“The home is named Ashlawn after a historical property in Nashville that was in the owners family for many years. The hand carved balusters still have the blueprints of the home tucked inside,” says McKinley.
Left Hand Creek also cuts through the property. “I’ve heard the area was under Chief Left Hand in the tribal days, and Haystack was used to spot Buffalo,” McKinley says. “One interesting feature is that they purchased the land when it still had an Abstract as opposed to Title Insurance.”
What might be most notable is the exquisite attention to detail and craftsmanship inside and outside of the entire estate, including the pool, spa area and outdoor kitchen.
