A nearly 100-acre horse farm in Ridgefield, Conn., has hit the market for $55 million, highlighting the state’s super pricey suburban luxury market.

The land holds three houses, two barns, a Grand Prix jumping field, pool, spa and tennis court. Railroad mogul Hunter Harrison and his wife moved in in 2005 and renovated the former dairy farm into an equestrian facility. The main house features six bedrooms and a living room with 38-foot ceilings.

Another Connecticut farm was formerly the most expensive listing in the U.S. A 50-acre Greenwich, Conn., spread called Copper Beech Farm fell in standing after slashing its asking price to $140 million from $190 million, at which point it was beaten out for the title by a 1,750-acre cattle ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyo.
