Hacienda De Molinero
An amber sunrise greets the morning as a newborn, blanketing the earth in warmth and light. Trees hung with fog stand sentry, enclasping and concealing the ground beneath. The air is still and silent aside from the low distant thunder of falling hooves growing louder and stronger until one by one, horses burst into view in a wave of mane, tail, and hoof. Welcome to Hacienda Del Molinero home of the well bred Paso Fino. Located near Farmington, Missouri, about two hours south of St. Louis in St. Francois County, Hacienda Del Molinero has been operated by the current owners for over 20 years, and the result is an exceptional working facility. State of the art amenities compliment the property and provide an ideal setup for both professional and amateur equestrian activities. For bluebird sky's, a 60x120 outdoor arena allows for plenty of fresh air and space to train or host an event, while a large indoor arena located off of the main barn serves as an added option. In addition to the indoor arena, the main barn boasts 13 stalls including a birthing stall, 3 stallion stalls, a mare and foal stall, and 8 regular stalls, all with padded flooring and serviced by automatic Nelson Waterers. An additional 14 stalls can be found in the round pen barn, as well as the 60' sunken round pen itself, a tacking area with water for bathing, a tack room, feed room, bathroom, and a storage room for hay or equipment. Furthermore, a third barn provides 14 more stalls equipped with automatic Nelson Waterers, as well as storage for hay and equipment, a main floor office space, two additional tacking areas, a tack room, and tack closet. Two full one bedroom, one bathroom apartments can also be found in the third barn, as well as 4 outdoor wash bays. Rounding out the improvements on this incredible property is a nearly 9000 sq ft home boasting 6 bedrooms with large walk-in closets, 6 and a half bathrooms, and a beautiful custom kitchen. Additional notable features of the home include the full walkout basement with a hidden theater room, an indoor hot tub room, and a whopping 8' deep in-ground pool. It's rare to have the opportunity to own such a high amenity equestrian facility of this caliber, but rarer still to own one that has been so well maintained. So bring your saddles and stirrups, and know that when shades of orange overwhelm the sky in the evening after a long day, the sun will set only to rise again on Hacienda Del Molinero.
