Old World splendor awaits you...is this Tuscany? Napa Valley? No, actually this estate is only minutes from downtown Tampa, but worlds away! The kind of place you might find Donatella Versace lounging on a divan. Through the security gates, down a private, old-growth oak lane this opulent residence draws upon the very best in classic Mediterranean influences: Italian, Spanish, Moorish and harkens to a time where handcraftsmanship was the rule of the day. The 7,427-square-foot home, perfectly sited on the seven-acre lot to capture views of picturesque Hog Island Lake, features six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half baths, two master suites, expansive common areas including a huge media or game room, library and professional kitchen. The finest materials, meticulous workmanship and custom millwork including extensive use of terracotta tile and hand-carved wood, exists in perfect harmony with the most modern conveniences and eco-friendly, energy-saving and cutting-edge building technologies. These include ZeroEnergy WHS and grey-water reclamation system for irrigating the manicured formal gardens punctuated with mature trees in antique vessels. Of course there is an outdoor kitchen perfect for entertaining al fresco on the sprawling lawn after boating or skiing on the lake or enjoying a cocktail by the classic rectangular pool. This home was custom built by a high-end luxury builder as his personal residence.
