Fantasy Farm Thursday: Small But Mighty Wonderland in Wellington
Feast your eyes on 3.3 maximized acres of luxurious Florida bliss in the heart of Wellington’s Grand Prix Village.
You know how they say the best things come in small packages? Apparently most people are talking about jewelry, but if you ask me, you’re definitely referring to a $12 million mini-farm in the most exclusive horsey neighborhood in the world. Can we all just agree from now on that’s what we’re talking about? Because once you see how beautifully they’ve managed to put everything you’d ever want in a horse property at arm’s reach on this little piece of paradise, you’ll never understand again how anyone could need 100 acres — or even 10 acres — to have the facility of their dreams. (And in an area where you’ll have to spend about $4,500 per square foot, small is GOOD.)
This is a brand new facility in the coveted and exclusive Grand Prix Village in Wellington, Florida, within walking distance to the Winter Equestrian Festival. All of the properties here are smaller parcels because of the neighborhood’s design, but architects are getting increasingly clever with how to maximize the space without sacrificing luxury.
In the barn, there are twenty stalls, two spacious tack rooms, four wash/groom racks, two airtight feed rooms, a laundry room, offices and plenty of storage (oh, how often a barn forgets a place for miscellaneous storage!). Of course, they spared no expense in the details of the stall fronts, flooring, lighting or ventilation.
Outside is a 210×120 ring that easily fits flat or jump work across absolutely impeccable footing. Can you say pristine?
One of the designs I immediately loved about this property was the long adjacent turnout design. You can enclose and divide each of the five turnouts, or open one or many up to allow for the horses to spread out. It’s an ingenious design with horse’s unique qualities and temperaments in mind.
In addition to the equine spaces, the top level of the barn also houses an owner’s penthouse and viewing area, as well as a two bedroom / two bathroom manager’s apartment for onsite staff.
All this can be yours for a cool $11.95 million, which comes out to about $4,780 per square foot.
