Ready to renounce modernity and become a horse lord? If you’ve got the cash, then we might have found the perfect option for you. This massive estate just outside of Invermere has everything you need to get started, so let’s check out the ‘House of the Friesians’.
Located just outside of Invermere, the $9,800,000 estate offers 78 acres and a whole host of amenities to enjoy. In fact, right now it functions as a sort of equestrian/wellness retreat. But forget all that- we’re reinventing as the perfect spot for a rich hermit.
There are currently 3 different buildings on the estate- a main barn, an off-the-grid log cabin, and a livable modern ‘shelter’. A ‘state of the art’ concrete main residence is also ‘soon to be constructed’ on the property, so we suggest checking out plans for that and seeing if it’s part of the purchase price. If not, well then, you’ve got some bargaining to do.
And besides, we’re more focused on the general vibe here. All of the buildings have sleeping accommodations, and they can sleep up to 40 guests at a time. However, we say that you just keep the doors for most open, and see if your horses create some sort of society with access to modern accommodations. That’s what citizen science is all about, after all.
Should you ever need to leave your horse estate, you’ll be happy to know that it’s accessible by regular old car or by helicopter. Of course, in order to truly become a horse lord you’ll have to occupy the off-the-grid cabin for authenticity, then get a few (modern-day) serfs to tend to your land and horses while you go hunting or spreading the gospel or whatever horse lords do.
We know- frame it as a ‘back to nature’ wellness retreat, where people can stay for free if they contribute to its success! You’ll have your own medieval commune up and running in no time. To check out the listing for yourself, just click here.
