It’s clear who the star residents of this Florida property are meant to be: There are stalls for 20 equine occupants, but just two bedrooms for the human ones.
Some of the jumping and dressage world’s luminaries live within trotting distance—think Jennifer Gates, daughter of Microsoft founder Bill Gates; Eve Jobs, daughter of late Apple founder Steve Jobs; and Bruce Springsteen’s daughter Jessica.
Located within the exclusive Equestrian Community of Wellington’s Grand Prix Village, a short drive from tony Palm Beach, 3905 Gem Twist Court hit the market earlier this year for $9.6 million, but the Owner has now decided to Auction off the prestigious Estate through Concierge Auctions, with a Reserve of just $5.3 million. Online bidding runs from May 19 through 22.
“If the property sells for anywhere close to this reserve, it’ll represent a truly exceptional value,” says Travis Laas, listing broker with Engel & Völkers who’s working in cooperation with Concierge Auctions.
As every Horse lover knows, Wellington is the Winter Equestrian capital of the world.
From January through April, an estimated 2,500 riders and 7,500 horses descend on this normally sleepy Florida enclave for the celebrated Winter Equestrian Festival, or WEF.
“The property is in a prime location for anyone wanting to train or compete in dressage, show jumping or polo. It combines the best of both equestrian luxury and proximity to Palm Beach and Miami and all they have to offer,” says Laas.
The four-acre property’s highlight is without doubt its huge, covered 220-foot by 90-foot all-weather riding ring. It features an entire mirrored wall at one end to fine-tune a rider’s technique.
Close by is that 20-stall barn that comes with two air-conditioned tack rooms, a pair of cooled feed rooms and four wash stalls. Each stall has its own security camera, fly-spray system and fans.
