In the desirable gated community of Ranch Colony, this 50-acre estate is one of southern Florida's most exceptional equestrian properties. In addition to a majestic Mediterranean-inspired residence overlooking a private four-acre lake, it features a heated saltwater pool, a guesthouse, an eight-stall barn with living quarters, a riding and jumping arena, eight turnout paddocks, three turnout structures, and riding trails winding through cypress and pine trees.Highlights of the five-bedroom home include formal living and dining rooms, a chef's kitchen, a family and billiards room, a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, a luxurious ground-level master suite, and a lounge and terrace enjoying sweeping views of the property. Every structure exceeds area hurricane-safety specifications, with impact glasrebar-reinforced concrete roofs, walls, and floors; hurricane shutters; and two commercial-caliber generators capable of powering the entire estate. Ranch Colony is surrounded by nature preserves spanning more than 20,000 acres, affording access to parks and horseback riding trails. But the tranquil parklike acreage recalls a nature preserve itself, replete with vibrant flora and the multitude of birds, turtles, and other wildlife that make their homes on the idyllic grounds. The property can be divided into two lots, allowing for great versatility. It could accommodate a variety of activities and pursuits, offering space for tennis courts and a highly adaptable studio for art, music, and other forms of entertainment. For the auto enthusiast, the equestrian facilities could easily be converted into garage space housing 20 vehicles or more. Superior golfing is steps away at the Dye Preserve, which adjoins the property to the west. Although exceptionally private, the estate is a half hour from the restaurants, shops, theater, and other cultural attractions of Palm Beach, PGA and West Palm Beach as well as the diverse equestrian and social activities of Wellington.
