International show jumper Selcuk Koksalan and his wife Purlen just bought an equestrian estate in Wellington.

Records show the Turkish family paid $6 million for a 5.4-acre estate at 15490 Palma Lane. It’s near the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, which houses the 12-week Winter Equestrian Festival every year from January to April. The village is where some of the sport’s most high-profile players practice, like the daughters of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Oil and gas industry executive Thomas “Tommy” Nusz and his wife Terri are the sellers. In 2007 Tommy co-founded the independent exploration and production company Oasis Petroleum, Inc.

The property features all the workings of an equestrian facility like five turnout paddocks and an all-weather Riso arena. The stable boasts stalls and an owner’s lounge with a bath and tack room. Another building on the property holds three wash stalls, two garage bays and a tractor storage.

The four-bedroom main house has four bathrooms and a pool. Martha Jolicoeur of Douglas Elliman had the listing. The property hit the market in April 2017 for $7.95 million, according to Redfin. That’s a 24 percent discount off the asking price.

The niche sport has attracted some of the wealthiest people in the world to Wellington’s equestrian estates. Jennifer Gates’ and Steve Jobs’ estates are less than a mile from each other in Wellington.

Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, the great grandson of Lego’s founder, Ole Kirk Christiansen, and his wife Signe recently sold an equestrian estate, also in Wellington, for $5.9 million.
