Originally built in 1904 as the Honorable Seth Lowe’s country estate, there were two barns for horses with a third building serving as housing for farm workers. The barn complex was sadly destroyed by a fire in 1970.
Left as stone ruins for 30 years, Kristen Carollo purchased the parcel in 2001 with the intent of resurrecting the barns to their original form and opening a state-of the art hunter/jumper show stable. With hard work, determination, and a vision of her dreams, Kristen created Courtyard Farm.
Courtyard Farm offers a sense of privacy from the rest of the world whilst having easy access to all major highways and the Metro North train station (only 1 mile from the farm). Manhattan is only an hour drive! Courtyard Farm is also centrally located to all of the largest east coast horse shows.
Bedford, known for being a horse community, has a 200 mile trail system that is well-known throughout the country as the BRLA (Bedford Riding Lanes Association). The BRLA runs right through Courtyard Farm, giving riders easy access to the beautiful trails. Kristen has also protected most of the property with a conservation easement through the Westchester Land Trust in order to ensure the history of this gorgeous property lives on.
