Whinny Hill Farm – 15 Glen Erin Lane
While cliché adjectives like prestigious, luxurious, and gorgeous may apply to Whinny Hill Farm, they don’t do justice to its depth of character. As a whole, it is a handsome farm, with a residence of dignified demeanor in somewhat of a contrast to its dynamic setting within the Golden Hills of Fairview Farms. Earth-hued stucco finish anchors this tall home to its elevated site that faces the changeable mood of the mountains and overlooks a domain of verdant pastures. The earth-toned theme, enhanced by cherry wood floors, and enlivened by a vast array of windows continues throughout the home. There are over 5,000 sq. ft. of living area, in addition to a stalwart pavilion and extended ironwood deck. The dressage arena with mirrors is regulation size; the 4-stall barn measures 48 x 60 and is equipped with all amenities. The pastures are board-fenced. Golden Hills is an equestrian community comprised of more than 500 acres with an extensive, well-maintained trail system.

“Less-Trodden” – 1394 & 1400 Butter Street
Whatever one may call this lovely bit of our Foothills (a writer’s retreat, a family compound, or an estate-of-sorts) ‘Less –Trodden’ is, above all, less trodden. It was assembled and kept from the ominous fate of development by its current owners’ determination to preserve the serenity of the forested hills, and their privacy and sanity. ‘Less-Trodden’ consists of 33.5 acres and two residences comfortably situated on a small plateau surrounded by a sylvan sanctuary. The land is hilly and heavily forested with mature hardwood. It is magical any time of the year: delicately tinted in the spring awakening; emerald-like for the summer and absolutely electric as things give way to winter when it rests. Perched on the western edge of the plateau high above Butter Street, the primary residence and the guest residence are not visible from any outside vantage point. The 2,894-square foot main residence is understated upon approach. An architecturally integrated pool, together with its’ broad concrete surrounds, spans the entire west side of the house providing a visual interlude between the interior spaces and the bold mountain vistas. A bit fanciful with its’ wide, live-edge wood siding, the second dwelling-cum-studio measures 2,167-square feet. It’s just far enough away to ensure privacy for both residences. The property consists of separately deeded parcels that can be sold individually.
