Wellington Real Estate is an internationally renowned destination for polo and equestrian enthusiasts with an unrivalled social scene. At the center of this horse-loving community is the Florida Equestrian Club, home of the winter Equestrian Festival. But Wellington has far more to offer than equine activities as you will soon discover.
The Wellington Homes for Sale community offers tremendous diversity, from apartments to lavish homes where residents have private barns, horse trails and paddocks and airplane hangars. The median price in this rapidly growing community is approximately $260,000. For that price, you can find a three-bedroom, 2-bath single-family home in good condition with 2000 to 2600 square feet of living space. You can also find 2 bedroom -2 bath condos in upscale gated communities with beautiful lake views, resort style living, lots of green space, community pools, tennis courts and more.
Larger Wellington Homes for Sale have 4 to 6 bedrooms and 3 baths and 2500 to 5000 square feet of living space typically sell for $350,000 to $500,000. Many of these Wellington homes come with large open floor plans and high ceilings, plenty of glass, lush landscapes, designer kitchens with new stainless appliances, split bedrooms and private pools. Some are in gated communities with HOAs that provide a range of amenities including golf, tennis, landscaping and maintenance.
Wellington also has its share of luxury estates selling for anywhere from $750,000 to $20 million. These one-of-a-kind properties have all the amenities you would expect – unique architectural features, built-ins, gourmet kitchens, verdant landscaping, designer pools and more. What makes these Wellington properties especially desirable is their acreage, which is far greater than that in most South Florida communities. Some of these homes even offer horse barns, paddocks, and riding trails – perfect for the equine lovers who relish living in this horse-friendly community.
Advantages of purchasing Wellington Property
Originally a drainage area for the Everglades and then a farming community, Wellington is now rapidly growing “village” with a population of 56,000, up 46% from 2000. People are drawn to this Palm Beach County community because of its open, farm-like feel, abundant parks, quality schools, attractive neighborhoods and equestrian interests.
The Equestrian Festival and International Polo Club Palm Beach host weekly competitions throughout winter "high season." Even in the summer, however, residents can still enjoy many activities, including the art of horse and rider at the Gulfstream Polo Club May through September. The architecturally distinctive Mall at Wellington Green offers many high-end retailers like Nordstrom’s and “346” Brooks Brothers, along with several fine restaurants. Nearby, health food lovers will find the largest Whole Foods store in the multi-county area.
Residents will enjoy the annual Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in neighboring Palm Beach, a one-of-a-kind event featuring millions of dollars in classic cars. The annual South Florida Fair in West Palm Beach offers acres of exhibits, rides and carnival attractions and the exhibition center also hosts antique and home shows, rodeo style events and the Sweet Corn Fiesta throughout the year. Other area attractions include the Palm Beach Zoo, the African Lion Safari, South Florida Science Center and aquarium, the Norton Museum of Art, Mounts Botanical Garden, and the Flagler Museum– a 55-room Beaux Arts Estate built by Henry Flagler.
Culture is encouraged throughout Wellington with programs like Art in Public Places which presents the work of local, regional and national artists. Residents also have easy access to multidisciplinary shows at the famed Kravis Center and other performing arts venues in nearby West Palm Beach.
Golfers of all skill levels will love the many fine golf courses in the area such as the Wanderers Club, Okeeheelee Golf Course and Binks Forest Golf Club. Tennis, swimming, boating and water sports enthusiasts will find themselves at home in this energetic community. Pet owners can visit the dog park located in Greenbriar Park which includes fenced off spaces for small, medium and large breeds, as well as restrooms, covered pavilions, water fountains (for dogs and people), wash stations and walking trails. Residents who don’t own dogs can still enjoy Greenbriar Park’s play area and four beach volleyball courts.
The community has many excellent public and private schools, including the Wellington Christian private school, Wellington High School, Polo Park Middle School and Panther Run Elementary School. It’s a great place to live and work and for young children to play and grow!
