As one of the world’s most successful polo players, Nacho Figueras and his family are constantly traveling the world. Finding a home that suits their lifestyle can be more challenging than you might think. Between equestrian events around the world and a growing family’s diverse needs, it’s important for them to find a home that every member of the family will enjoy.
For several months every Winter, the family travels to Wellington, Florida to participate in the Palm Beach Polo season. Coach House Wellington is being developed adjacent to the Equestrian Preserve in this cherished Palm Beach community. But that’s just one reason this new, world-class condominium will be Nacho Figueras and his family’s future home. From its lock-and-leave lifestyle to the convenient access to everything the Palm Beaches offer, Nacho opens up about why he couldn’t think of a better place to live with his family. Here’s what Nacho had to say:
Q. What do you love about Wellington?
A. What I love about Wellington the most is, first of all, it’s arguably the horse capital of the world, it has incredible tournaments of polo, dressage, and jumping. If you’re a horse lover, you can’t not love Wellington. The proximity to the Palm Beaches and amazing beaches, airports in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami are very close so that makes the Palm Beaches a very easy destination.
Q. What makes Wellington a great place to raise a family?
A. Wellington is a great place for a family. We as a family have been going there for very a long time. Our kids have grown there, we play polo, we play tennis, we play golf, we run, we bike, kids go to school, kids homeschool. Lots of polo families are there during the winter too, so we have lots of friends there, so it’s a global and great place for families. The weather is perfect, and we really love it.
Q. Tell us about your relationship with Neil Hirsh, the visionary behind Coach House?
A. My relationship with Neil Hirsh is a very long one. We first met in 1999 in the Hamptons while playing polo and we connected from the very first day. I started playing polo with him in the year of 2000. In 2004, we embarked in the Blackwatch team in approaching what an amazing journey, and we had an amazing time playing polo together.
Q. What intrigued you about Neil’s development, Coach House?
A. What intrigued the most about Neil’s Coach House development was his intention to do something amazing and great. If you know Neil and if you know the things Neil has done in his life, you know that he always thinks the highest of levels. He did with his stable scene in the Blackwatch Farm in Wellington and if you know his houses, you know that Neil only does things the best ways.
Q. What do you look forward to about moving into Coach House?
A. Moving into Coach House for us as a family will be amazing. We love all of the things that Coach House brings. It brings a very easy proposition to Wellington, something Wellington doesn’t have right now. Wellington has history and amazing history of great accommodation at the Palm Beach Polo and County Club but nothing at that level and nothing with concierge service and amazing pool and all of the amazing amenities that Coach House is going to have.
Q. What do you like most about the floorplan you chose?
A. The floor plan my family and I have chosen is on the third floor because we believe the views there are going to be amazing. I have four children, and we like that the floor plan has four bedrooms. It has a private garage underneath which has a private elevator to tale us up directly to the apartment, which is great.
Q. Are you working with a designer to finalize your interior finishes?
A. We have not decided yet if we are going to work with a designer for interiors. We normally love to do things ourselves, so we’ll see as the time gets closer if we do that or not.
Q. When you talk to your friends, what do you tell them about Coach House Wellington?
A. I found that a lot of equestrians are very excited about this project. I’ve been talking to a lot of people from the horse world about the project, and I think everyone is excited. In 2021, when we will all be there in Wellington for the Winter Equestrian Festival and things are more advanced with the project, everyone is going to get excited. There aren’t many apartments, so you need to get your hands on one as soon as possible.
