About the Property
Sun Willow Horse Ranch is located on the very northwestern edge of Sioux Falls. This nearly 50-acre site is a little dated and not quite so ‘turn-key’ – but holds some very promising attributes as well.
There is a spacious main home – which happens to offer a second kitchen in the basement as well; and then there is a modular home, offering the potential for up to 7 bedrooms between them. While there is work to be done, each could be made into a very comfortable home to provide individual space as well as healing community.
The ‘Red Shop’ offers three different spacious areas for various aspects of the social enterprise. Each offers their own entrances and two of them have already been insulated and heated. With a little work, everything from crafts to woodworking could be accomplished in this space.
The horse facilities offer even more capacity and versatility for the equine ministry. There are 27 horse stalls and an indoor riding arena, as well as a large shed that could serve as hay storage or another location for indoor round pen work during cold seasons or inclement weather.
The nearly 50 acres of this property would allow for plenty of pasture, the potential for organic farming, flower beds, and possibly bee-keeping, as well as the potential for a riding trail along a meandering creek that cuts through this watershed.
So, this diamond-in-the-rough also uniquely suits the diverse aspects of the Chrysalis ministry. Perhaps this site is to be the first of the Chrysalis ‘transformations’! Potential residents and other volunteers may work side by side to experience first hand how something that may seem a bit rundown can be transformed into something beautiful and useful and productive. Redeemed!
