Forbes - - Leaderboard Real Estate -

WHERE DOES THE horsey set go to es­cape the gal­lop­ing masses? To Welling­ton, Fla., a lit­tle west of Palm Beach. It draws its name from its found­ing fa­ther, Charles Oliver Welling­ton, a New York ac­coun­tant and in­vestor who drained flood-prone land close to the Ever­glades. His son, Roger Welling­ton, be­gan turn­ing it into a man­i­cured com­mu­nity in the 1970s. The eques­trian elite ar­rived shortly there­after, lured by the gleam of the town’s In­ter­na­tional Polo Club. Res­i­dents to­day in­clude a movie ac­tor, a base­ball star and at least 5 bil­lion­aires, in­clud­ing 2 of the world’s 20 rich­est peo­ple.
