For serious equestrians, a luxury home is great, but it doesn't mean much without a spacious parcel of land to sit on. It just so happens that the Wellington Equestrian Estate in Florida has both and will soon be auctioned off on-site during the Platinum Luxury Auctions March 1 event.
The house is located in Homeland, a guard-gated development of less than 300 equestrian and ranch estates (which all sit on mid-to-large parcels) in Palm Beach County — though it actually has a Wellington ZIP code. The community, which is only ten minutes away from the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, has an abundance of lakes, ponds and canals, making it pretty ideal for taking leisurely horse rides.
Over 5,700 square feet, the main residence has four bedroom and 4.5 baths, while the 750-square-foot guest house has one bedroom and bath — both featuring built-in wood accents, marble floors, stone fireplaces, and Venetian plaster.
As nice as the home is, the outdoor living areas are far cooler. There are many different places to relax, from the lounge areas to the resort-style, saltwater pool and rock waterfall (not to mention the water slide, swim-up wet bar, and the hot tub grotto with its own audio system). With an outdoor fireplace, flat-screen TVs and a secondary surround sound audio system, the exterior looks fit for one of Hugh Heffner's Playboy parties.
With a 200'x100' riding arena (which is fenced and irrigated), you'll have plenty of room to give your horse a workout. Additionally, the grounds include six paddocks, a stocked pond with a fountain, a gazebo, and private lake frontage. The barn is also brand new, having been finished this month, and the large custom garage and workshop offers plenty of room for car buffs to work on their new luxury automobiles.
If you want to check this impressive estate out before you bid on it, the property is open to viewing every Friday-Sunday in January, and every Saturday and Sunday in February (12-5 p.m. for both months).
