Vero Beach, FL – Florida’s best-kept secret may be the small, elegant city of Vero Beach, which offers its inhabitants the luxury and tranquility that is not often found in coastal Florida. Nestled within Vero is a robust equestrian facility known as Atlantic Crossing Stables; a property that boasts 34 pristine acres, several specialized riding arenas, and countless other exciting features bested only by one thing: the fact that this property is being offered for sale in a luxury auction on June 21. No doubt the competition will be exciting because along with Atlantic Crossing’s unique location, the property has major appeal for polo jumping, dressage, reining and just about every other equestrian discipline.
Platinum Luxury Auctions, a Miami-based firm specializing in the auction sale of multimillion-dollar properties, is managing the sale of Atlantic Crossing Stables in cooperation with listing brokerage Treasure Coast Sotheby’s International Realty. Platinum is no stranger to the equestrian world, as its portfolio includes a number significant equestrian property sales within the past 16 months.
The property boasts 46 stalls in 3 barns, 23 paddocks, 3 turnout pastures, 2 jumping arenas, a dressage arena, a round pen arena, an 11-acre “stick-&-ball” polo field and grand prix jumping field, and a 3-acre bridle track all perfectly orchestrated together into a gorgeous and practical estate.
Atlantic Crossing’s structures include 5 air-conditioned tack rooms, a clubhouse, a laundry room, feed room, utility rooms, an office, and living quarters that offer a total of 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. When looking at the clubhouse’s outdoor entertainment and barbeque area, it is easy to imagine hosting both large events and more intimate social gatherings on the grounds.
Prior to its conversion to a private equestrian compound, the property was the original clubhouse and operational facility of the Vero Beach Polo Club, which is still located within riding distance. Atlantic Crossing is also centrally located to Florida’s primary equestrian markets, offering easy access to the venues for Florida’s winter show circuit. This includes Wellington’s Global Dressage Festival, Winter Equestrian Festival, and International Polo Club, Ocala’s HITS and the Grand Oaks circuits, as well as the popular tourist destinations of West Palm Beach and Orlando.
Platinum Luxury Auctions will be conducting property previews every Friday- Sunday from 12:00- 5:00 PM, beginning on Friday May 23rd and continuing every weekend until the auction. The live auction will be held on Saturday June 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM on the Atlantic Crossing Stables grounds. All registered bidders are welcome to come vie for the property. The highest bidder at or above $1 million will become the property’s new owner.
