Then beggars would ride... in Deutschland!  The property price is unlisted, which lets you know how pricey this place is.  I know most of the homes that I post on this blog are domestic but I just had to include this equestrian estate located 75 miles from Hamburg.  The "cottage" was originally built in 1809 and looking at the exterior, you wouldn't expect complete remodel and upgrade on the interior.  The inside of the house is warm, light and bright and such a pleasant surprise.  The architectural details of the rooms - the rough hewn beams, arched doorways and spa - are eye popping.  Other than the painstakingly manicured grounds, the home also comes with a world class equestrian stud farm called Gestut Famos.  The indoor arena, with its glass enclosed viewing area, is really the cherry on the top.

PS - Those are the cleanest stables that I have ever seen.  Someone must have went through with an industrial vacuum cleaner and gotten rid of everything except for the horses for this photo shoot.
