In the desirable gated community of Ranch Colony, this 50-acre estate is one of southern Florida's most exceptional properties. In addition to a majestic Mediterranean-inspired residence overlooking a private four-acre lake, it features a heated saltwater pool, a guesthouse, currently 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 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 glass; rebar-reinforced concrete roofs, walls, and floors; hurricane shutters; and two commercial Caterpillar 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. 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 the highly adaptable barn structure is perfect for a studio for art, music, and other forms of entertainment. For the auto enthusiast, these facilities could easily be converted into showroom space housing 25 vehicles or more with generous shop and restoration space. Superior golfing is steps away at the world-renowned Dye Preserve, which adjoins the property to the west. Restaurants, shops, theater, and other cultural attractions of Palm Beach, Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, PGA, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach International Airport as well as the diverse equestrian and social activities of Wellington are nearby.
