When price is no object, a house can get pretty spectacular indeed. Take this walled estate in the Lake Club which, in addition to being enormous (9,233 square feet), has a list of amenities rarely found in a private home. You might expect a tennis court and a 1,000-bottle wine room—but a marble-floored car museum? A private golf course?
The golf course part of the estate is being sold separately, but when the price is no object, of course you’ll buy both parcels. The golf course is actually more of a practice and game area, with five tees that offer a variety of shots perfect for improving your short game. It’s surrounded by a jogging track.
The home itself is built on a very grand scale, in a Mediterranean style with elaborate custom finishes. The living room ceiling soars to 22 feet, and the master suite features an office and library and lavish bath. Unusually for such a large house, everything is all on one floor, including four more bedrooms each with bath.
It’s full of recreational amenities that make it perfect for family gatherings--or extended social isolation. You’ll find a gym, a basketball court, a billiard room, another game room, and a totally equipped outdoor living area. Oh, and about that car museum. Its star attraction is the owner’s 1963 Z06 Corvette, one of only 15 ever made. I doubt the owner will throw it in, but it’s worth asking.
16416 Baycross Drive, Lakewood Ranch, is priced at $4,195,000. Golf course parcel is priced separately at $895,000. For more info call Roger Pettingell of Coldwell Banker at (941) 387-1840.
