Yes, This Incredible Maine House Really Has An Indoor Horse Arena
This Ellsworth "mansion" is probably the most unique property on the market right now. Because of the massive size of the house, we are referring to it as a mansion, but much of the square footage is used for a very specific purpose. More on that in a minute...
According to the listing on the Realtor website, the property at 157 Shore Road in Ellsworth was built in 1970 and encompasses about 12,500 square feet. It has three bedrooms and four bathrooms (three full and a half). It has a nicely setup kitchen, a dining room, a living room with an amazing view, a finished basement, and an inside hot tub.
One of the unique features of the home has got the be the massive game room / lounge. Currently, it is filled with memorabilia and appears to have a punched tin ceiling!
The home comes with 4 acres of land and sits right on the lake. It also has a three car garage.
Seems pretty modest, right? So, why is the house so large? Well, it has an attached barn and an attached arena! Yes, an indoor workout / practice place for your horses. That way, no matter what the weather is like, you can still ride or train your horse. Clearly, the people who built the home were big time equestrians.
Take a look!

The really cool part of the place is that, given the money to renovate, you could turn that barn and indoor arena into basically anything!
Currently, the list price is just under $2,000,000. That price is actually down by about $250,000. If you were to put down $500,000 at closing, your monthly payment would be about $10,000. That would include the principal, interest, insurance, and taxes.
