Mayadinya is a 28-acre horse farm and home in the Montgomery County Agricultural Preserve. It has the distinction of abutting the 650-acre Rachel Carson Conservation Area, which offers miles of bridle and hiking trails.
The main house is a log home built in the 1980s that has been extensively renovated. It has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a kitchen with a sunny breakfast area, a dining room for entertaining and family gatherings, and a living room with a stone fireplace. The basement is finished and includes a home gym, laundry facilities and ample storage. The large, wrap-around, covered porch provides pastoral and sunset views.
In 2020 the owners expanded the original home with an addition that has one bedroom with a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, foyer/mud room, and large porch. It is well suited for a caretaker, in-laws or guests.
There are beautiful views in all directions from the house and the attached cottage of pastures, gardens, and woods.
An oasis behind the house has a a 65-foot long, in-ground saltwater pool with a heater, deck for lounging and entertaining, and surrounding lawn and gardens.
The current owners are three-day eventers. Their equestrian setup has been meticulously maintained, serving serious riders well over the years. There is a center-aisle barn with six spacious stalls, including a broodmare (12’x18’) stall, plus a heated tack room, hot/cold wash stall, feed room, hay and straw storage areas, heated automatic waterers, and parking space for several trailers. The storage areas could be easily converted to three more stalls in the barn.
The farm is in the heart of Eventing's Area 2, close to a number of eventing venues for the national and international horse trials.
There is a 22,000-square foot, fenced-in sand arena with lights, a 20x40-meter grass dressage ring, four pastures with three-board fencing and two large run-in sheds (one 33’x24’, the other 24’x24’) to which horses in all four pastures can be given access, one pasture with a heated automatic waterer, and wide bridle paths around the property as well as straight into the conservation area in the back for unfettered access to hours of trail riding and conditioning work. Approximately 10 acres of this property are cleared and the rest are forest and wetlands, which lock in permanent access to the trails and river in the abutting parkland.
Solar panels on the barn produce the equivalent of 2/3 of the farm’s electricity use throughout the year and a charging station powers up electric cars. The standing seam metal roof on the house could be fitted with more solar panels.
This exceptional farm is down a private lane and well off the road, providing a private and peaceful haven within easy commuting distance of Washington, DC and Baltimore.
