Platinum Luxury Auctions Announces Offering of Storied Equestrian Estate
On February 9, 2013 one of Wellington, Florida’s most impressive equestrian estates, one of Wellington, will be sold at a live, luxury auction. Two Swans Farm, a luxury horse farm is situated on nearly 10 acres, and will be sold to the highest bidder at or above a reserve of $4 million. The property was previously listed for $9.6 million. The seller preserved Platinum Luxury Auctions, a firm specializing in the auction of distinguished properties, to conduct the sale. The listing agent Matt Johnson of Illustrated Properties Real Estate, Inc., an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is cooperating with Platinum on the transaction.
Carol Cohen owns Two Swans Farm, a former dressage rider and a prominent figure in the equestrian community. Cohen developed the property with her late husband, business magnate Alan N. Cohen. Cohen was a former co-owner of the Boston Celtics and New Jersey Nets, and served as chairman and CEO of the Madison Square Garden Corporation.
The property is exquisitely designed and impeccably maintained, with an Old World European style that radiates charm and character. The property also features include a magnificent porte-cochere entry, grand courtyard, a covered and mirrored riding arena measuring 80 ft. by 220 ft., 12 main stables and Argentinean granite cobblestone walkways throughout. There are also 3 grooming stalls, a designer tack room, storage rooms and offices, a computerized hot walker and 8 separate paddocks.
“This is one of the most unique horse properties I’ve handled,” stated listing agent Johnson, who is a top-producing sales agent in the Wellington market and also an accomplished equestrian. “I’m advising all of my buyers to participate on February 9th.” The residential accommodations at the farm are quite plush, and are divided into two main areas: the owner’s quarter, which offers 2 bedroom suites, 2 full and one-half bath, and the separate groom’s apartment, which offers 2 additional beds, 2 full baths and volume ceilings.
