Professional competitive driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. put his equestrian estate in Mooresville, North Carolina up for sale this summer with an asking price of $15.995 million. The property spans 140.75 acres in all, with a five-bedroom, 9,986 sq. ft. mansion at the heart of it all.

The 2001-built house is an architectural curiosity. It features a symmetrical center section with stacked stone accents that breaks into wings, and a grandiose sense of style that begins with an elaborate porte-cochere. A partial rotunda in the middle of the structure provides the shape of the foyer, lending itself to a double staircase and raised dome ceiling inset with a series of clerestories.

With the stacked stone playing such a primary role in the first impression at entry, you might expect it to reprise its role with periodic appearances inside. Nope. The primary accent material within is reclaimed timber, and it’s used a great deal. As a rustic flourish, it competes with incredibly grandiose crystal chandeliers, ornamental columns, taxidermic trophies, a bit of Tuscan inspiration, and even a powder-blue French cooking area and vent hood. A rethink might bring a welcome touch of cohesion to this very eligible mansion.

A wealth of specialized spaces, of course, is a given. A game room with cobalt blue walls, a plush theater with stadium seats, and a master with a fireplace and a companion bath with a soaking tub — backed with a reclaimed timber backsplash slash accent wall — as a centerpiece top the list. And, of course, a full equestrian spread: stables, stalls, arena, pen, pole barn, tack room, and shop.
