A sprawling 80-acre Wellington estate sold for $17.45 million, marking one of the priciest sales in the equestrian mecca over the past year.
Helgstrand Dressage purchased the property known as Windsome Farm at 13560 Indian Mound Road for $218,125 per acre. Windsome Farms Limited Inc, led by Robin Koenig of Transworld Oil USA, sold the property.
The equestrian estate is at the intersection of South Road and South Shore Boulevard. The estate was built in the early 1990’s, and has been owned and operated for the past 25 years by Windsome Farms Limited, according to a press release. It has 52 European-style stall stables, residences and tack rooms and an owner’s lounge, according to a listing on Realtor.com. It also has three training rings, a grand prix course and miles of trails with maintenance and storage facilities.
Windsome Farms Limited bought the land in 1989 for $2 million before building the structures in 1995.
The Atlantic Western Companies’ Brad Scherer represented the seller in the deal.
Helgstrand Dressage is a seller, breeder and trainer of elite and Olympic level Dressage horses, with over 450 horses based in five training centers in Germany and Denmark, according to the release.
Wellington is considered the winter equestrian capital of the world and is home to the who’s who of power players who have equestrians in the family. The families of billionaires such as Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and the late Steve Jobs, as well as celebrities Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen, all have homes in the village.
Last month, Oscar-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones sold his Wellington equestrian estate at 12550 40th Street South for $11 million.
