The only things that don't come with Highland Farm are jockeys.
Highland Farm, an equestrian property near Lexington, Ky., may well be the most expensive piece of real estate in the country right now. However, its $60 million price tag includes more than just a house and some land. With the property comes one Kentucky Derby winner, 115 breed mares, 30 barns and 19 other homes, all set on some 2,000 acres of bluegrass. The champion horse is Real Quiet, winner of the 1998 Kentucky Derby. George Hofmeister, who owns the property and the horses, is not getting out of horse racing but simply moving to another state, according to his real estate agent.
Built at a cost of $15 million, the main house has approximately 35,000 square feet of interior space. There are 9 bedrooms and 12 baths. Marilyn Hoffman of Hoffman International Properties in Dallas has the listing.
