Located a stone’s throw from Lion Country Safari on the northwest corner of Aero Club Drive and Greenbriar Boulevard - close to Wellington’s western border - rests a genuinely unique residential development. It all started in the 1970s when having a team of horses in one’s backyard with paddocks, barns, and other equine frills were already in the cards. So, the village founder, C. Oliver Wellington (and private plane pilot), proposed the idea of a Cessna hanger connected to his residence (like his garage). Two of Oliver’s aircraft-owning buddies - Guerry Strilling and Arthur Elisson - chipped in with him to buy a 400-acre real estate footprint, with deep water canals on three sides and fenced on the fourth to make the vision a reality. Running through the middle of it is a 4000 ft grass runway for private aircraft landings and takeoffs - fully lighted from the pilot’s remote control panel in the plane. The initiators and a few others built houses with private hangars as described, and “Voila” - the in-community on-campus airport was born with town approval and requirements to meet strict protocols.
The ungated Aero Club homes for sale emerge from construction activity that extended over forty-four years to around 2014. Today, there are 248 estate homes in the complex, most of which have no airplane accommodation facilities, the latter owned by residents who simply love the feel of the aeronautical society. Indeed, there are aircraft parking facilities for public accessibility at $200 an hour.
Aero Club single-family houses entering the MLS are 2,000 to 10,000 square feet under-air (UA) on lots of at least one acre. In addition, for a $300 monthly HOA fee, there’s a clubhouse with a billiard room, catering kitchen, a hall large enough for family celebrations, and a swimming pool. Notwithstanding homeowner accessibility to these facilities, the runway takes pride of place as Aero Club’s signature feature.
Some residents over the years have built custom homes and remodeled older structures with modern graphite, marble, onyx, porcelain, and wood materials. It has resulted in enhanced gourmet kitchens, wide-plank floors, sleek cabinetry, oversized islands, and other contemporary features. In addition, private pools, high-impact glass windows, new air-con systems, internal reconfigurations, and more have created laidback luxury lifestyles for homeowners.
However, renovation across all 248 homes stretches from “minimal” to “almost-a-rebuild.” Thus, the pricing range is massive, from $300 to $600 per square foot under air. So, what does this mean?
For example - Two 3,500-square-foot (UA) houses in Aero Club Wellington can list on the MLS for $1,050,000 and $2,100,000 (or anything in between).
Thus,it creates substantial room for negotiation - even for a spectacularly reconstructed residence. .

We recommend Boca Raton’s Le Rivage, Fieldbrook Estates, Le Lac, Long Lake Estates, and Old Floresta.
