How many horses can I have in Paddock Park II in Wellington Florida?
We get a lot of questions in our ActiveRain contact box and our email boxes from prospective sellers and buyers for property around Wellington Florida and other locations in South Florida.
One of the questions that came in last week was: How many horses can we have in Paddock Park II?
Paddock Park II and Saddle Trail equestrian communities in Wellington Florida have acreage lots with homes and acreage suitable for your horses. If you buy a home in either of these communities you can apply for a permit to build stalls on your property.
You are allowed to have 4 stalls per acre in each of these equestrian communities in Wellington according to the Village of Wellington code compliance. So that means you can have 4 horses per acre in Paddock Park II and Saddle Trail.
Please bear in mind that if you are new to horses and the equestrian lifestyle that just because you are allowed to have 4 stalls per acre does not mean that is the most ideal environment for your horses.
Horses like to graze. Horses are top grazers which means they like to eat the top of the grass and in Florida the grass on your land is not always in the best condition for horse grazing.You can plant bermuda grass in Florida and in the winters your horses should do fine. Make sure to take into consideration how much grazing areas you have to raise a healthy horse.
Disclaimer: Please make sure you check with the Village of Wellington about this question before you buy a property or home in Paddock Park II or Saddle Trail of Wellington just in case any of the codes change before you buy if you own horses or want to own horses in Wellington equestrian areas.
Paddock Park 2 Wellington Equestrian Market Report
published December 1, 2011
Paddock Park 2 is the equestrian part of Paddock Park. There are 2 sections of Paddock Park. There is Paddock Park 1 and Paddock Park 2. The difference is that Paddock Park 1 are mostly non equestrian estate properties on about one acre of land and Paddock Park 2 is the equestrian section with lots of at least 2 acres each with riding trails and mostly horse properties. Neither section is gated and there is no HOA which is awesome! Of course, that is my opinion.
There are 14 active listings in Paddock Park 2:
The most expensive active listing is 14949 Draft Horse listed at $1,975,000 million.
This home boasts over 8000 square feet under air conditioned living space and sites on a little over 2 acres. The home has a resort style pool and many upgrades.
The grounds have a great 4 stall barn and a full apartment for the groom under one roof. There is a lighted riding arena and trailer parking.
The lowest priced home in Paddock Park 2 is located at 14983 Draft Horse Lane. This home is under contingency for $390,000 and it is a bargain price if it gets approved. It is a short sale and it is in need of a new roof and other repairs. You will not find a better value than this price. We will need to wait and see if the third party approves this low price.
