This horse barn, known as Spout Run Stables, was built in Clarke County, Virginia, near the Piedmont region and has a rich history of horse riding, fox hunting, and steeplechasing. This area is well known to horse-lovers, lifelong owners & breeders, endurance riders, and equestrian Olympians.
SSB was commissioned to build a barn to match the client’s other buildings—one that was strong and beautiful but blended in effortless.
After several months, the 36x90-foot barn with an airy and open 10-foot high and 12-foot wide aisles, substantial loft, impressive 12-foot walls, and six 12x12 stalls with dutch doors was complete.
The barn boasted many impressive features. It had custom aluminum stall fronts with a yolk for the horses to poke out their curious heads, feed room, wash stall, tack room, laundry area, and restroom. The large center aisle had custom arch doors and 12-inch concrete borders with rubber pavers.
Other details include:
12x12 horse stalls (6) 12x12 storage stall 12x12 feed room 12x12 laundry/tack room 12x12 office 3x9 restroom 3x3 closet storage area (4) 3 x 12 open storage area 3’ wide stairs to loft area Loft over all stalls, wash stall, and aisle-ways 114 feet of 12-foot wide aisle-ways
The outside was as impressive as the inside. It had reverse board and batten siding, a full-size outdoor riding ring, and large doors that opened up to the breathtaking hills of Virginia.
And as requested, a 1,300 square foot caretaker’s apartment was constructed within the barn. It was move-in ready with painted walls, inviting but durable flooring, beautiful hardwood cabinetry, complete heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and plumbing as well as every other necessity and many other luxuries.
When the project was complete, it was undeniable: the property, home, and barn felt like a cohesive estate. The clients couldn’t have been happier.
