Miami, FL - The exclusive equestrian community of Florida has long been an influential and trend-setting population. Fashion, jewelry, art, social events and horses all mix together and align beautifully within the luxurious lifestyles of elite equestrians. However, with their fast-paced show schedules and jam-packed social calendars, most equestrians have little time to worry about such things as the real estate market or the latest methods for buying and selling property, which could pose a problem when it comes to having to make quick decisions about re-locating or upgrading their facilities and farms to accommodate their horses. This is where the professionals at Platinum Luxury Auctions have stepped in to provide a perfect solution for both buyers and sellers of high-end equestrian properties, and in doing so, have sparked a new trend in luxury real estate sales. Platinum Luxury Auctions specializes in the auction sale of elite and distinguished properties offered on behalf of affluent sellers who prefer a date-certain sale to a lengthy sales process filled with market uncertainties. The firm’s luxury auctions are implemented with the highest degree of professionalism at the local, national and global level.  Platinum only offers properties valued in excess of $1 million, with a special focus on ultra-luxury and unique properties, which is why the equestrian community is such a perfect fit. In fact, the recently successful sale of the gorgeous Two Swans Farm in Wellington has unleashed a new trend of selling horse farms at auction that is quickly spreading across the country.

The process leading up to auction day for Two Swans Farm was almost as exciting at the actual sale itself. Open houses, sponsored events and private pre-viewing of the property added to the buildup in ways that fit in perfectly with the equestrian lifestyle. In addition, knowing that the property was going to sell on a specific date brought much satisfaction to the former owner of Two Swans Farm. This auction was such a success, that Platinum is now offering more equestrian-themed properties for sale exclusively through their auctions and the trend is spreading from coast to coast.

In Jupiter, Florida, on Friday, May 24, 2013, Platinum will be auctioning an amazing 20-acre modern ranch estate that is part of the Ranch Colony equestrian community. This elegant residence was inspired by the designs of Mies van der Rohe, one of the pioneers of modern architecture. Completed in 2012, this brand new residence is characterized by modern, clean design and bright, open spaces.  There are soaring ceilings in both the main living areas (16-17 ft) and bedrooms (13-14 ft). With more than 7,200 interior square feet of living space, 5 bedrooms, and 5.5 baths, the estate is suitable for a large family or for those who love to entertain. The art enthusiast will appreciate the display opportunities provided by the vast living area (26 ft x 60 ft) and adjacent gallery (16 ft x 64 ft). Additional features of the estate include an indoor pool (fully enclosed with A/C), outdoor lap pool with oversized patio, 3-car garage and a private gate opening to a winding, stately entrance.  

Ranch Colony is a gated, luxury estate community that is located less than 15 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and approximately 4 miles from Interstate 95. The community encompasses more than 2,000 acres and features ranch/equestrian, golf and private aviation amenities to the residents living within its five subdivisions. These subdivisions include The Links (also called “Dye Preserve”), Ranch Acres, Tailwinds, Old Trail and Ranch Estates. The property itself is located within the Ranch Estates subdivision, an area defined by large acreage parcels and luxurious equestrian and ranch properties. There are only 41 lots within Ranch Estates – each lot being at least 10 acres in size – creating a private and exclusive environment. And while this is very much a ranch and equestrian community, Ranch Estates’ rules and regulations ensure that the integrity and appearance of this upscale community is preserved.  The excitement for this auction sale has already begun, with previews being held every Thursday – Sunday from 12pm to 5pm EDT until auction. The community is gated so all visitors must contact Platinum in advance.

For those who are heading west, Platinum Luxury Auctions is equally excited to offer something to equestrians who prefer the Pacific Ocean as well. On Saturday, June 8th, Platinum will be holding an auction for the Rimrock Acres estate - a fabulous multi-purposed equestrian estate compound situated on more than 4 manicured acres and located within a short drive to both the Pacific coastline and downtown Los Angeles. This luxurious property offers endless views of the Santa Monica Mountains and features a two-story main residence, a two-tiered outdoor living area with a large pool, Jacuzzi and summer kitchen, a tennis court and separate guesthouse with adjacent horse barn/garage. Again, the excitement is already building for auction day, and property previews begin May 15th and will be held daily from 12-5pm PDT until auction. This property was previously offered for $7.25 million, and is now selling to the highest bidder at or above $2.5 million.
