PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $5 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! A unique equestrian property on 40 acres, Trinity Farm – built to complement the surrounding hillside – is an elegant, “self-sustaining” estate with incredible equestrian amenities. An equestrian facility includes an indoor arena measuring 70-ft by 204-ft with custom-mixed Attwood composite footing, prized for its use as footing in the Olympic games and for its low maintenance; no upkeep is required other than monthly harrowing. The facility is perfect for dressage, jumping, or exercising horses on rainy days, and is adjacent to a hot walking exerciser, several paddocks, bridle trails, and more! Fenced and cross-fenced, the property is sited on a lushly wooded lot with plenty of room for horses – and their riders – to roam. With several greenhouses, raised garden beds, and even a chicken coop, complete self-sufficiency is possible.
The main residence is constructed wholly of concrete, and spans 5,700 sf with 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half bath. A beautiful approach to the entry is lined with mature evergreens, and a decorative motor court provides a memorable first impression. An attached, two-car garage offers covered parking, but parking for many additional vehicles is available on the motor court itself. Entertaining areas are spacious and include an open concept kitchen and living room with fireplace that opens via floor-to-ceiling glass doors into an indoor pool/spa and lounge. The lounge area is walled entirely in glass, including the ceiling, making this bright, sunny room the perfect place to relax with family and friends.
Beyond the lounge, a large stone patio overlooks the lovely grounds, which include a whimsical treehouse with bunk beds and a lofted area that children of all ages will enjoy.
Just 30 minutes from the state capital of Olympia and 45 minutes from Tacoma, this Property is uniquely situated to offer the tranquility of nature and the convenience that comes with being near a major metropolitan area.

YELM, WA. A dynamic city with the qualities of a small town and the amenities of a bustling suburb, Yelm was first settled in the 1850s by men and women who came to join the Hudson’s Bay Company of sheep farmers. Those settlers were said to have remarked on the beauty and majesty of the landscape, saying it was “a scene fit for an artist.” The Northern Pacific Railway came to Yelm in 1873 and brought much prosperity for its residents, who suddenly had an export market for their agricultural and forestry products. The founding of an irrigation company in 1916 made Yelm a commercial center for the production of beans, cucumbers and berries, which were shipped by rail across the Pacific Northwest. Today, Yelm maintains much of the beauty and majesty of its earliest days and is a gateway to Mount Rainier and the greater Puget Sound region.
Primarily a bedroom community for commuters who travel to Tacoma, Olympia and Centralia for work, Yelm is also home to many military families whose loved ones are stationed at the nearby Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Yelm’s families are vibrant and young, and more than half have small children, making the city an ideal place to raise a family. Excellent recreational activities abound, with a lovely city park, a wetland area with a catch and release fishing pond, a sports complex, and the 14-mile Yelm-Tenino trail available. In addition, world-class dressage and eventing facilities are available (both in Yelm and within a short drive) for local equestrians; other equine amenities include horse boarding, training and showing, as well as equine therapy.
THURSTON COUNTY, WA. Presided over by the 14,410-ft peak of Mount Rainier, Thurston County, WA, encompasses 774 square miles of territory at the southernmost reaches of the inlets of Puget Sound. Its county seat and largest city is the state capital of Olympia, which also serves as the cultural center for the region. Local companies Animal Fire Theater, Olympia Family Theater, and Harlequin Productions at the historic State Theater entertain residents, and additional performances by the Olympia Symphony Orchestra and the Masterworks Chorale Ensemble provide even more opportunities to experience an evening of culture. On average, Thurston County sees very little snow, moderate rain, and moderate temperatures ranging from a low of 35 degrees to an average high of 76 degrees; indeed, Sperling’s Comfort Index ranks Thurston County 75 out of 100 for its comfortable year-round climate.
Thurston County offers incredible recreational activities for those who enjoy the outdoors, and each of the average 105 sunny days per year is filled with residents enjoying hiking on Mount Rainier or in the Cascade Mountains, or boating on Puget Sound. Locals can also travel to the nearby city of Lacey to relax on the +1,200 acres of wooded parkland and three freshwater lakes–or to hit the links on one of the four local golf courses. The county is also incredibly friendly to businesses and has seen average job growth of 2.5% over the last year; in addition, Thurston County (indeed, all of Washington state) does not levy an income tax. Due to its low cost of living, solid job growth, cultural experiences and recreational opportunities, Forbes Magazine ranked Thurston County #32 on its 2017 list of Best Places for Business and Careers as part of the Olympia-Tumwater Metropolital Statistical area.
