Unique Southwest Michigan Equestrian Estate to Auction

Gorgeous, Contemporary Equestrian Resort Home

OTSEGO, MI--(Marketwired - October 16, 2015) - J.P. King Auction Company announces the unique Southwest Michigan Equestrian Estate will be auctioned Tuesday, October 27, at 11:00 a.m. EST owned by Jere Hinman. The spectacular resort home is located on more than 62 acres and features a 9,000 square foot home, heated barn and heated Morton equestrian arena.

"One of the most glorious things about the property is its abundance of wildlife and water views. Located on a peninsula on the Kalamazoo River, there is water on three sides of the house. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) owns the property in front and across the river. So, the surrounding land is maintained as an undeveloped wildlife area," said Jere Hinman.

The six (6) bedroom, eight (8) bath custom-built house is an architectural work of art with floor-to-ceiling windows providing water views in every room. The living room boasts towering windows, a fireplace, and Brazilian cherry hardwood. There is a gourmet, Sapele wood kitchen with professional-grade appliances, a game room, home theatre, fitness room, sauna, and pet bath with grooming room.

"It is a self-contained resort really. The house is ideal for entertaining. The location and grounds are a haven for outdoor activities year round, from summer boating and kayaking, to hiking among the beautiful autumn leaves, to the undisturbed blanket of snow in the wintertime covering the grounds for cross country skiing and snow shoeing, to spring hiking and horseback riding among the early flowers. There is horseback riding year round in the indoor arena with the heated barn," said Hinman.

The Allegan Airport is seven miles away and accommodates jets. Also 10 minutes away is The Lynx golf course.

"I found the property by renting an airplane and flying within driving distance from Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. The aerial view revealed this location as ideal for privacy and also its close proximity to major cities. I can be on my kayak one moment and then at the symphony in Grand Rapids in the next."

The main floor consists of an open kitchen, dining area, living room, and master bedrooms. The master suite has two sleeping quarters, each with its own private deck and enormous walk-in closet. They are joined by a spa-style master bath. There is a beautiful open sunroom. A library nook is situated on the landing between the first and second floors with custom, built-in Sapele wood shelving.

The fully-equipped barn includes eight (8) stalls, a viewing room, and a full kitchen. The stable is wired for satellite and includes a tack room, bath and wash stall, and a grain room. The 72' x 150' heated Morton arena has a red dirt base beneath geotextile fabric which is topped with limestone and quartz sand, allowing riding year round. A sprinkler system has been installed for dust control. There are three (3) fenced pastures with three (3) private ponds on the property.

Also selling are two additional parcels. One consisting of approximately 18 acres with a five (5) bed, two (2) bath cottage farmhouse and a parcel that is approximately 12 acres of agricultural/development land.
