The longtime horse breeder built the roughly 200-acre equestrian estate to include a 10,000-square-foot main house, a manager’s residence, an indoor horse arena and several barns.
Wild Turkey Farm is an elite equine breeding and training facility that sits on 215 beautiful acres along the Willamette River in Wilsonville, Oregon. Fueled by a love of horses and a passion for quality and performance, Wild Turkey Farm’s owner designed this riverfront, equestrian property to be a world-class estate for sport horse breeding.
After passing through Wild Turkey Farm’s private gates, a winding drive meanders through fenced paddocks, past architecturally beautiful barns to the grand hilltop residence where views of the property abound. Every detail of this all-inclusive complex was carefully planned, designed and built over ten years, and no expense was spared to create this exceptional estate that is ideal for living the ultimate equestrian lifestyle.
Every structure, whether for horses or humans, has been built with luxury and functionality in mind – from the gorgeous Montana stone on the facade of each building and the shimmering infinity pool at the main residence to the state-of-the-art equipment in the breeding lab and the 106 security cameras located throughout the property. Wild Turkey Farm is one of the country’s largest and most-respected breeding and training facilities, but it is more than that. It is an incredible place to call home!
When designing Wild Turkey Farm, the owner took advantage of the vast acreage and created exceptional spaces for all of the equine needs. With competition practice in mind, the complex has a 175’ x 300’ outdoor arena as well as a 150’ x 225’ indoor arena with room to set up eight stride lines. Surrounding the indoor area, the training barn and stallion barn are 24 60’ x 60’ turnouts that alternate with grass and all weather footing. The indoor arena boasts multiple viewing areas and extensive trailer parking. Wild Turkey Farm’s horses are treated like 5-star hotel guests in the estate’s five barns. Ninety-seven large stalls, each with a private run, accommodate stallions, mares, foals, and retired thoroughbreds. The barns include top-of-the-line HDPE wood stall fronts, Nelson feeders and automatic waterers, wash racks, grooming stalls, vet rooms, tack and feed rooms, laundry facilities, offices, and more.
The property’s 33+ pastures offer plentiful year-round space for the horses. Four- and five-rail fencing, water spigots and Nelson waterers keep the horses safe and healthy. Additional equine amenities include a covered Eurosizer, round pen, yearling barn, and paddock sheds. Water rights from the Willamette River keep the pastures and surrounding land irrigated and a small pond located near the estate’s 15 wooded acres is not only a quaint place to enjoy an afternoon but is used for run-off in the winter. With its state-of-the-art equipment and carefully planned layout, Wild Turkey Farm offers all the ease and functionality expected from a world-class equine training and breeding facility.
In addition to the exceptional equestrian facilities, the estate has a distinctive, two-story 9,855 sq. ft. owner’s residence that overlooks the summer pastures, surrounding wooded acreage and property beyond. With its rustic yet refined style, this home was designed to be as livable as it is beautiful.
The home’s outdoor amenities, including a shimmering infinity pool, patios surrounded by beautiful landscaping, and an outdoor kitchen and living room are perfect for enjoying Oregon’s beautiful summers and mild, year round weather.
Inside, the open plan great room and gourmet kitchen and large formal dining room are perfect for entertaining. Private spaces include a den, library, upstairs media room, and four guest suites. The luxurious master suite is far more than just a place to sleep. With its large bedroom, luxurious bath, spacious walk-in closet, an exercise room, laundry room, storage, and access to the home’s fenced in side yard, this is a true owner’s retreat.
Across the driveway from the home’s attached two-car garage is a detached two-car garage with a private office/studio and full bath. Every consideration was taken to create a home that offers residents and guests exceptional space for living, working and entertaining.
A private, gated entrance opens to the estate’s south side where shedded pastures, the retirement barn, pump house, and the manager’s home is located. This is also where you’ll access the property’s Willamette River frontage. A wooded path winds down the hillside to a perfect picnic spot at the top of the gangway that leads to a floating dock. The dock features a boat slip, mooring ties and a patio area. Hours will be spent here enjoying the river’s peaceful scenery and all the water sports it affords.
This distinctive estate not only offers an exceptional equestrian and waterfront lifestyle, but it is located within Oregon’s famed wine region, the Willamette Valley AVA, the Aurora airport, the majestic Oregon coast, the picturesque Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood National Park, and is only a few miles to the Pacific Northwest’s best shopping, dining and entertainment. Wild Turkey Farm has everything a professional equestrian owner, breeder or trainer could ask for – plus a little extra for good measure!
