Recording artist Billy Joel bought a horse ranch in Wellington for $3.5 million.

Joel, 68, bought the five-acre ranch for his fourth wife, 36-year-old Alexis Roderick, an experienced equestrian.

The ranch has a barn with 12 stalls and a groom quarters and a dressage ring.

The buyer of the property was a corporation called Littlesea Farm South, which was created two weeks before the closing.

The Daily Mail reported that Joel is the buyer behind Littlesea Farm and that another company linked to the singer and songwriter acquired property adjacent to the five-acre ranch in 2016 for $3.628 million.

The two Wellington properties span 10 acres.

Joel still is trying to sell an oceanfront mansion in Manalapan and a vacant lot next door that he bought in 2014 for $18.3 million. The lot and the nine-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion are now listed for sale with an asking price of $16.9 million. [Daily Mail] – Mike Seemuth
