Equestrian Estates $$-$$$|
John Henline -
This 160-acre Witchita Horse Community is on the southeast corner of Harry and 127th East. 110 homes starting in
the $200,000 range, on large lots that sell for $20,000 to $40,000.
The unique draw of Equestrian Estates, is a 32-stall stable, as well as indoor and outdoor
riding arenas. The facilities, which already exist on the property, will be available to homeowners who want to
board their horses. Equestrian Estates also includes extensive riding trails that wind throughout the development.
It offers riding and training lessons to area residents. In the long run more stables may be built. The Horse
Community also includes 22,000 feet of fence and will have about 80 acres on which the horses can roam once the
development is complete.
"Our thought is people who like and enjoy horses ought to be able to enjoy them at their home," says Greenstreet.
"It's going to be an interesting concept -- there's nothing in the Wichita area similar to this."
Equestrian Estates will be built in two phases, with 63 homes planned for the first phase during a three-year
period. Lot sizes will be 95 to 110 feet wide and 130 to 140 feet deep, he says, larger than a standard lot which
is 75 to 80 feet wide. The development will have an open builder program. There will be four model homes that
Greenstreet plans to have open in time for the Spring 2002 Parade of Homes. The development will have four small
lakes, one of which already exists on the property. Equestrian Estates is in the Wichita school district.
