On February 25th, 2017, Miami-based luxury real estate auction firm Platinum Luxury Auctions will put up a luxurious equestrian property located in the private and gated community of Las Palmas. The highest bidder who meets or exceeds the auction’s reserve bid of $4 million will receive the 10-acre portion of the Wellington Equestrian Estate, including all of its structures.
The additional, 5-acre parcel is available separately, with the price being negotiable between buyer and seller. Wellington, Florida is one of the world’s most prominent equestrian marketplaces. The area is home to the world’s longest-running horse show and competition – the Winter Equestrian Festival.
The main residence of Wellington Equestrian Estate features nearly 6,400 sf of living space, with 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths and numerous amenities such as an infinity-edge pool and spa, 1,400-bottle wine cellar, library, media room, office, fitness center, and a “tower” on the second level that doubles as a yoga studio. There are also two generators, in addition to “Smart Home” technology that is controllable via mobile devices
Additional structures include a 3-vehicle garage (with A/C), guest cottage, 12-stall barn with enclosed lounge and attached loggia offering views of the riding arena and fields, a dedicated set of grooms’ apartments with an additional garage for larger equipment, a 215-ft-by-125-ft riding arena, and 6 paddocks.
The eco-friendly Wellington Equestrian Estate draws additional water from both a well and from rain-catchers located in the paddocks, and it also collects energy from solar panels – which can in fact create an energy surplus that can be sold back to Florida Power & Light.
