About Francis Hoet

We chose Wellington as our main residence because we love horses, and I fell in love with this property because of its mature Oak trees. I am a Broker associate who specializes in equestrian properties. I am a jumper, 2 of my kids ride, and my husband is an equestrian judge.

Francis Hoet purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Francis Hoet chose Wellington

We decided to buy in Saddle Trail because of its's very close to the show grounds and neighbors share the same passion for horses. Oak trees around the property caught my eye from the first moment. Very quiet area, but still close to everything, and 4 Olympic Gold medallists ride in the same street.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Location, private setting, and amazing landscaping.

Amazing home and so close to WEF !

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely amazing and looks exactly like the pictures... even better if possible! We filled every bedroom with our group from Texas in Wellington to compete at WEF and never once felt crowded. The bedroom layout is perfect for groups and there were plenty of bathrooms for everyone as well. The house is well appointed, the grounds are beautiful and Francis is a gracious and accommodating host. She was prompt in answering any questions before and during our stay. The location is perfect for access to the horse park (our girls rode their dirt bikes to and from the house to the horse park most days) and it's also very close to Wellington proper. We will absolutely plan to stay here again if the opportunity affords itself!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house is beautiful with so many wonderfully appointed bedrooms and good open spaces to hang out or entertain. All in one floor which is really convenient especially with little ones so you aren’t worrying about stairs.

The owner/broker was really nice and accommodating.

I would definitely recommend renting.
