About Equestrian Estate in Perl-Borg, close to Luxembourg

Equestrian Estate in Perl-Borg, close to Luxembourg

One of the world's finest equestrian estates, Gestüt Peterhof lies in the picturesque village of Perl-Borg on the Upper Moselle River—a prime location in the border triangle of Germany, Luxembourg, and France. 
An internationally respected stud farm, FEI- and Olympic-grade dressage facility, and equine wellness center, this magnificent 30-hectare (74-acre) property offers every amenity to train and breed horses for competition on the global stage.

World-Renowned Dressage Stable and Stud Farm
The dressage facility has staged four FEI (International Equestrian Federation) tournaments and the Olympic qualifiers for the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. The equestrian complex can board up to 40 horses, with building permits to double that capacity. Among the Grand Prix dressage horses in residence, in training and at stud, is the Danish Warmblood stallion Sezuan, formerly ridden by German Olympic gold and silver medalist Dorothee Schneider—a five-year partnership that resulted in three World Championship titles.

The Residential Complex
The estate is symmetrically aligned along an exact north-south axis. The entrance, with its ascending avenue of trees, leads into a Mediterranean-inspired piazza with a beautiful stone fountain. Surrounding the piazza is an ensemble of buildings: the grand, Baroque-inspired two-story main house, the adjacent stud manager's house, and five elegant guest houses.

The Equestrian Complex
Dominating the piazza is the magnificent two-story clubhouse, affectionately named the casino, with an 80-seat restaurant, two kitchens, several VIP lounges and event spaces, and four terraces.

Gestüt Peterhof pampers its equine inhabitants with 38 spacious, windowed loose boxes arranged in stable wings linked by central grooming areas and wash bays, and an immaculate two-story tack room furnished by Ralph Lauren Home.

From there, horse and rider can access the 20- by 60-meter indoor arena, with an Otto sand surface, a mirror wall, and floor-to-ceiling windows that open to the outdoors. The 20- by 60-meter outdoor arena has an underfloor, Ebb and Flow irrigation system. A second outdoor arena, indoor lunging ring, and all-weather gallops track allow for individualized training.

The on-site equine wellness facility (with veterinary clinic, rehabilitation and fitness complex) includes an aqua trainer, spa, and an infrared heat cabin. The stud farm is a fully certified EU Insemination Station.

Surrounding the complex are eight year-round paddocks and 32 pastures, all with secure, safety-conscious plastic fencing.

Gestüt Peterhof is a turnkey operation; the farm machinery and maintenance equipment and all furniture, finishes, fixtures, and appliances throughout the property are included in the sale.

The Location
The location offers the best of both worlds: secluded and private, yet close to local services and amenities, both in the village of Perl-Borg and the neighboring town of Merzig. Several international airports are also nearby, including Luxembourg's LUX Airport, an equine air transportation hub. Luxembourg City, one of three official EU capitals and a center of commerce, is 30 minutes away. Paris is 90 minutes via TGV high-speed rail.
