A 5.3-acre compound belonging to two-time Olympic gold medal winner and international equestrian McLain Ward is on the market in Wellington, Florida.
The estate, which was “meticulously designed for both horse and rider” according to listing notes from agent Marley Overman of Illustrated Properties’ Wellington-based Overman Team, housed both Ward and his top horses such as HH Azur, Clinta, and Rothchild.
Built in 1994, the property’s 4,400-square foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence was thoroughly remodeled in 2015 and feature a new kitchen, bathrooms, hurricane doors and windows, and a heated salt water pool with a slide.
The home is joined by two barns with a combined 21 stalls, six sodded paddocks, a circular riding pen, and a grass field with three “Liverpool” style jumps and a built-in water obstacle.
McLain Ward earned gold medals at both the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and is currently ranked top competitor in the U.S. Equestrian Federation (USEF) standings and second in the world by International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI).
The 42-year-old athlete’s Wellington compound is one of many posh riding estates in the area. Past and current neighbors include celebrities like Billy Joel and Tommy Lee Jones.
Ward’s property at 2169 Appaloosa Trail is currently listed for $5.7 million. It last sold in 2009 for $2.5 million, according to public records.
