Wellington, Fla. – Feb. 19, 2021 – The “Equestrian Capital of the World,” Wellington, Florida is home to some of the most luxurious equestrian properties in North America. To invest in one of these special properties takes a lot of time and effort, so choosing the right partner to finance and develop the property is an important decision. Farm Credit of Florida (FCF), located in West Palm Beach, Florida, specializes in supporting the building and financing of rural and agricultural, and equestrian properties. One of these distinctive properties is 5240 Lardeo Way, owned by the Brickford family and recently listed for sale through Sotheby’s Real Estate.
Nestled in the prestigious equestrian community of the Wellington Preserve, this property offers abundant opportunities for any equestrian’s needs. Owned by the Brickford family, this is one of the very few properties to boast fifty-five acres in the town of Wellington. Through thoughtful design, the Brickford family equipped the property with top-of-the-line horsing amenities, including a sixty-four stall barn with 12×12 stalls, two polo fields and a 170’ x 220’ sand ring. The property also features a family home consisting of fourteen bedrooms and ten full bathrooms to accommodate everyone from family, to guests and staff.
“Farm Credit of Florida is thoroughly familiar with Wellington and equestrians,” remarked Paula Brickford “They were able to envision what we wanted to do with the property which made the process very efficient. They were helpful at following us along the journey of design and build and were supportive of our vision.”
Currently, this property is listed for sale with Michelle Hall of Sotheby’s International Realty. A truly one of a kind find, this equestrian estate is the perfect fit for any equestrian discipline, including dressage, hunter /jumper, and polo.
