Wellington, Fl. is located in western Palm Beach county, sharing a south-western boundary with the world famous Florida Everglades.  It is known for it's abundant parks, quality schools, attractive neighborhoods and world class equestrian events.

 

Charles Oliver Wellington purchased Wellington in 1951, but because of its close proximity to the Everglades, there was frequent flooding.  As a result, legislation was passed to transform these wetlands into fertile farmland.  Strawberry fields and Citrus groves were well suited for this land.

 

Wellington has come a long way since the 1950's.  In fact, it was listed by Money Magazine as one of the Top 50 Places to Live.  It is home to the International Polo Club Palm Beach and The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, encompassing 150 acres and is the centerpiece of the Wellington winter circuit.

 

Wellington's rich culture provides plenty of activity for the non-horsey crowd in Wellington.  Choose from fabulous restaurants, unrivaled shopping, including the true shopper's utopia at the beautiful 1.3 million square foot Mall at Wellington Green, and exciting nightlife.  Golfing is popular at the numerous quality courses including Binks Forest Golf Club, Polo West Golf Course, Wanderers Club at Wellington and the nearby Links at Madison Green.

 

Wellington is known for large estate quality homes as well as not so large homes for first-time buyers and retirees,  townhouses, luxury apartments and horse farms.

 

Wellington's nearby attractions include - Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Norton Museum of Art, South Florida Expo Center, Lion Country Safari, Rapids Water Park and some of the finest beaches along the Atlantic corridor, Lake Worth, Lantana, Singer Island, Juno Beach and Jupiter.

 

The Palm Beach International Airport located in West Palm Beach is the nearest airport. 

I hope you fall in love with Wellington as I did 35 years ago.  If you are ready to Create Memories in Your New Wellington Home, give me a call - 561-596-6136
