3,732 sqft


Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a storybook piece of Tampa’s history. This exquisite estate is the epitome of privacy and serenity, surrounded by nature at its purest. Once home to the beautiful picnic and entertainment grounds of the beloved “Lake Ellen beach”, this is original Florida homesteading at its finest. Among the very first deeded land in the entire Carrollwood area, long before it even had a name, today, this privately gated retreat still offers unparalleled privacy and tranquility. Surrounded by the spring-fed waters of 51-acre Lake Ellen and Springwater creek as well as the towering, graceful cypress trees of the abutting nature preserve, this stately custom-built home showcases a refined elegance and immaculate attention to detail that is rarely seen. Solid mahogany carved double front doors with 24k gold-plated handles open to a grand staircase and foyer, crowned with one of several extraordinary crystal chandeliers, and extends to the formal dining space. Hand-painted ceilings and wall treatments throughout add to the luxury and charm while elegant custom drapery and rich walnut columns add a warmth that continues to a showstopping great room. Beautiful walnut paneling is the perfect backdrop for the matching wet bar standing ready to entertain. Stretching to the 21’ ceiling, the brick fireplace and hand-carved wood mantle are centered amongst soaring beveled glass windows and French doors opening up the space to the neoclassical back porch. Across the oak floor is the expansive kitchen and circular dinette, wrapped in natural light pouring in from the bay windows. The deluxe master bedroom suite features its own bay window seating area, and a stained-glass doorway leads to the massive master bathroom. 13’ pillars adorn the Roman tub encased in marble to match the counters, and an etched glass door opens to the separate shower, while the final door opens to the custom walk-in closet with a large safe.
