A scion of the wealthy Danish family that built Lego just sold an equestrian estate in Wellington for $5.9 million.

Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, the great grandson of Lego’s founder, Ole Kirk Christiansen, and his wife Signe, sold the nearly 13,000-square-foot property at 4544 Garden Point Trail for about $460 per square foot.

The buyer, 6845 Via Del Charro, is tied to a Long Lake, Minnesota-based horse farm called Leatherdale Farms. Records show the Kristiansens bought the 5-acre estate in 2014 for $5.4 million.

It hit the market asking $6.4 million earlier this month with listing agents Craig Martin and Matt Varney of Wellington Equestrian Realty.
Matthew Johnson of Engel & Voelkers Delray Beach brought the buyer.

In January, Lego celebrated its 60th anniversary. The company is valued at $2.7 billion, according to published reports. Lego toys are sold in more than 140 countries. The Kristiansens also own Kirk Arabians, a stud farm in central Denmark.

The property features all the workings of an equestrian facility like a barn, horse trails and a six-stall stable. The four-bedroom home on the property features a pool, a fountain and statues in its courtyard.

Celebrities like Bill Gates, athletes, world-famous musicians, and CEOs of million-dollar companies have all flocked to Wellington for the Winter Equestrian Festival, which takes place every year from January to April on the grounds of the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. The 12-week WEF has been the longest equestrian event of its kind for several years.

In November a New York-based company scooped up an equestrian facility in the nearby Grand Prix Village in Wellington for $8.6 million.
