The Farm:

*Custom Donald Gardner luxury 4 large bedroom, 3 bath home built in 2008.  Approx. 2600 sq ft home, fabulous floor plan!  Granite countertops, hardwood & ceramic tile flooring, custom wood cabinetry, stacked stone wood burning fireplace (with gas starter), large rooms throughout with cathedral, trey, and 9' ceilings.  Beautiful crown molding throughout.  Large master bath with Jacuzzi tub & tiled shower w/ rain head, double vanity.  Tankless hot water system.  Large screened porch and deck with gas grill overlooking mountain, pasture and river views. 
A breathtaking view from every window!  Bedrooms are wired for flat screen TV's to go on the wall.  The home also has a beautiful dining room with trey ceilings which is currently being used as an office.  The master bath is also wired for a flat screen to go above the jetted tub!  Extra insulation for very low power bills.  The home has a home security system.  Whirlpool Gold stainless steel appliances.   

*Main barn has eleven 12x12 stalls, concrete washrack with hot/cold water, feed room and a large finished tack room complete with a full bath, A/C, insulated walls & ceiling & ceramic tile flooring.  Part of barn is a large run in shed that could easily be turned into 5 more stalls.  The entire barn, including the roof and the hay barn, have just been freshly painted.  The fencing has been meticulously maintained and is currently being repainted.  Both barns were recently completely repainted. 

*Large separate hay barn with one very large foaling stall attached to 2 acre, 4 board fencing paddock.  The hay barn also offers 2 dog kennels w/ runs.  Shavings building attached to hay barn to accommodate spreader truck load of shavings.  5 turnout paddocks with board fencing and one large (approx 25+ acre) pasture with board/wire fencing.  Lush grass pastures will keep horses FAT!  Most of our horses don't even get grain during warm months because the grass is so lush.  Entire property is fenced. 

*Fabulous, enormous riding arena (140 wide x 280 long) with the best all-weather footing money can buy!   You'll rarely miss a day of riding with this fabulous footing as the drainage is fantastic!  Large covered viewing deck by arena which currently we use as a judges stand.  Great for any discipline.  A large grass warm up arena as well that would make an excellent dressage arena.  We also use it as a turnout paddock. 

*Restroom with pedestal sink near riding arena which is great for horse show or clinic days! 

*Only a couple of miles from the Pinhoti Trail for hours of fabulous trail riding!  3 miles from a farm that offers schooling on their cross country course to the public for a small fee. 

*Property line goes to the center of the beautiful Chattooga River, and we have LOTS of river frontage.  Great fishing and hunting as well as gorgeous to look at!  NO FLOODING PROBLEMS!  The Chattooga River is also known for great canoeing!  Imagine going canoeing and fishing in your own backyard!

*Garden located beside the home is a fabulous space to grow tomatoes, cucumbers etc.  There are blueberry bushes, thornless blackberry bushes, and grapevines that produce delicious produce every year!

River frontage offers hunting paradise for duck hunting enthusiast!

Rivermont is well known for hosting monthly horse shows for 11 years now that draw crowds from Atlanta, to Chattanooga, to all over NE Alabama.  The farm is very well known all over and has done well offering boarding & training services, horse shows, lessons, clinics and more.  We have excellent vets and farriers in the area, great schools and very friendly neighbors!  A private piece of property that is convenient to everything.  1/2 mile to post office, gas station, Dollar General and park.  Only 20 minutes to Cloudland and Mentone where in the winter time you can enjoy skiing!   

Low property taxes! 
Low power bills due to extra insulation added to house.
Water:  350 foot deep well that provides around 18 gallons of water per minute.  City water hook up available. 

Additional equipment will be offered for sale to go along with the farm such as the PA System for running the horse shows on the farm, a like new 40 HP New Holland Tractor, Auger, Flat bed trailer, jumps and more!

Another plus, our feed store (Pine Ridge Outdoor Supply) that sells Southern States feeds plus hay and farm supplies is only 1 mile from this farm!  (only a horse person would appreciate a feed store being 1 mile away!) :)  The cost of living here, including feed and hay, is MUCH more economical than most parts of the country.  (How does $3 to $4 a bale delivered sound on hay, and $35 a round bale?)  However, you're still within close proximity of Atlanta and Chattanooga. Our grass is so great here, especially this year though that you won't need to feed grain or hay until winter.
