"A place like no other"
A true Southern Beauty, Aiken is canopied in majestic live oaks, decorated with beautiful landscaped gardens and dotted with massive estate homes harking back to the 1800 and 1900’s when Aiken was a winter retreat colony for the wealthy.
Aiken exudes pure Southern charm. However, you will find that Aiken is much more than just a pretty place. Deemed as an All American City, Aiken is also historic, sporty and outdoorsy.
The heart of Aiken is found in its charming, art-infused, tree-lined downtown, yet Aiken’s soul stretches beyond the friendly city blocks to its signature gardens, estates, equestrian stables and nature trails. If you’re looking for culture and cuisine, Aiken has it. Aiken is known throughout the world for its top class equestrian events highlighted by Aiken’s Triple Crown, the fall Steeplechase and numerous events at the new state-of-the-art Aiken Horse Park. If you want simply to relax and enjoy nature, Aiken has a natural environment to discover and thousands of pristine acres to be found in the middle of the city in Hitchcock Woods, one of the largest urban forests in the United States.
Windswept Farm is located 12 miles east of the city of Aiken and only a 15 minute drive to all the conveniences Aiken has to offer. This area has attracted equestrian sports enthusiasts - from polo players to carriage drivers to show jumpers to dressage to eventing - to build large horse farms on hills and hollows. Windswept Farm has followed this tradition and established an unparalleled equestrian estate with exceptional attention to detail and quality throughout.
