RECENTLY OFFERED FOR $11 MILLION. NOW SELLING AT OR ABOVE ONLY $4 MILLION! Located in the exclusive and gated Las Palmas Equestrian community, this impressive Property combines contemporary design, European elegance and robust equestrian amenities. With its own, additional gate and palm-lined entryway, the Property offers a regal arrival for both owner and guests.
On-site structures include a luxurious residence with 3-vehicle garage and adjacent guest cottage, a 12-stall barn with enclosed lounge and attached loggia offering views of the arena and fields, and dedicated grooms’ apartments with an additional garage for larger equipment. All structures are located on the main, 10 acres of the Property, with an additional, 5-acre parcel also available for sale separately (refer to the Auction Terms of Sale within the Document Portal).
Built in 2010, the main residence offers approximately 6,400 interior sf* (including air-conditioned garage), with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. Detailing and finishes throughout are refined, and include marble flooring, Dornbracht fixtures, Brazilian granite and Pecky Cypress. The main living area is comprised of a sleek kitchen, large dining area, and elegant salon with an attached loggia offering views of the pool and training fields beyond.
Additional features include a 1,400-bottle wine cellar, library, media room, office, fitness center, and a unique, “tower” on the second level that is currently outfitted as a yoga studio. The Property includes two generators (48kW and 20kW), and “Smart Home” technology controllable via mobile devices.
Outside the estate, an infinity-edge, salt-water pool and spa serve as the centerpiece of the rear courtyard. There is also a fire pit and plenty of deck space around the pool for lounging and relaxation.
In addition to the well-equipped, 12-stall barn, the Property also includes a 215-ft by 125-ft riding arena, large grass field for hunter-jumper or grand prix riding, 6 paddocks, and an all-weather hacking path along the estate’s perimeter.
A “green,” consumption-conscious facility, the Property draws water from a well, uses rain-catchers in the paddocks to gather water and provide shade, and collects energy from solar panels – which can in fact be sold back to Florida Power & Light.

LAS PALMAS EQUESTRIAN. A gated, private community minutes from the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, Las Palmas Equestrian’s palm-lined arrival is second only to the incredible homes and equestrian facilities therein. The Home Owner’s Association is professionally managed, keeping and maintaining the common areas in first class repair, and the covenants of the association provide clear guidelines ensuring the beauty of the community is preserved for all residents.
Las Palmas Equestrian is also uniquely situated in the center of more than 57 miles of trails that run through the community, into the nearby Wellington Environmental Preserve, and beyond. This southwestern portion of the village of Wellington spans 9,000 acres of designated Equestrian Preserve Area and features land and bridle trails as well as horse-centric businesses and parks with ample resources for horses, riders and caretakers alike.
WELLINGTON, FL. Named by Money Magazine as one of the “100 Best Places to Live,” the village of Wellington has come a long way since its humble beginnings as the world’s (supposed) largest strawberry patch. In 1953, less than 100 people resided in the area. Today it is a thriving Palm Beach County community known for its upscale equestrian and ranch facilities, and its wealthy residents.
Although a number of factors have contributed to Wellington’s rise from obscurity to prominence, the most important of these is unquestionably the equestrian lifestyle. The village is globally recognized for its equestrian and polo events, and is consistently ranked amongst the world’s most elite equestrian marketplaces.
To be sure, Wellington is host to the world’s largest and longest-running horse show and competition: the annual Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), held largely at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC). Each year, thousands of participants and spectators flock to Wellington for this exclusive event.
This spectacular 12-week affair “awards over $6 million in prize money and hosts 5,000 horses and 2,800 riders from 50 states and 31 countries.”1 The PBIEC is set on 500 acres and consists of 18 competition arenas, one derby field, over 400 stalls spread over two facilities, VIP box seating, a special events pavilion and the largest covered riding surface in the world.

In addition to the 40+ weeks per year the PBIEC holds competitions, the International Polo Club in Wellington hosts several high-goal polo tournaments including the USPA Piaget Gold Cup and the Nespresso U.S. Polo Open. These events are designed to showcase the skill of horses and riders alike and are played on three fields; a “stick-and-ball” practice field is also available.
Nearby, more entertainment is available from national acts passing through the Perfect Vodka Ampitheatre and the Kravis Center; festivals from the Lillith Fair to the Vans Warped Tour and musicals both classical and contemporary feature regularly on their calendars.
