A first time offering, Black Forest Farm was constructed as a private equestrian estate and has remained under the same ownership for nearly 50 years. A mere two miles from the waterfront and amenities of Harbor Springs, Black Forest Farm is comprised of approximately forty-five acres, a four- bedroom main residence, two-bedroom carriage house, and a nine-stall barn. This is a truly unique offering that is irreplaceable in the Harbor Springs area. The main residence and carriage house were constructed by one of the area’s premier custom builders in 2001, and the property has remained under their care. Amenities of the main house include primary suites on both the first and second floors, custom kitchen, formal dining room, library, upper-level billiards room and bar overlooking Little Traverse Bay, fireplaces, elevator, and a two-car attached garage. The carriage house includes two en-suite bedrooms, covered porch, caterer’s kitchen, and four-car heated garage. Both feature several outdoor seating areas perfect for evenings spent looking out at the bay or the surrounding woodlands. The land itself consists of long-standing pines and hardwoods, beautiful pastures, and unmatched privacy. The fenced drive winds for over a quarter-mile beyond the picturesque barn and paddocks before arriving at the main residence and carriage house. Black Forest Farm is an idyllic private estate on the outskirts of one of Michigan’s most beloved waterfront towns.
