The bite-size city is located in Hillsborough County, which means a resident who desired a small-town feel with the nearby amenities of a big, waterfront metro (Tampa, anyone?) would find the place appealing.
With that backdrop, Don Wallace, founder of Lazydays RV, and his wife, Erika, decided to go all-in on the tiny town’s massive potential and build big.
The couple’s staggering estate, measuring 42,000 square feet, is now on sale for $22 million, and the amenities are amazing.
“I know this sounds a little cliche,” says co-listing agent Dina Sierra Smith, “but this house is just majestic.”
Judging from the listing photos, Smith isn’t wrong. From the outside, the mansion is picture-perfect. The 36-acre estate, called The Oaks, features immaculate landscaping and is dotted with hundreds of oak trees. There’s also a lakeside view.
Though a house this size would not be described as intimate, Smith says the mansion is actually quite cozy.
“It’s actually the perfect combination of majesty and family,” she says.
The main house has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The main floor is the central living space with a sprawling living room, kitchen, and dining room.
The upper floor is dedicated to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The bottom floor is all about recreation and features a gym, bowling alley, steam room, sauna, and heated pool.
The home includes a seven-car garage, but that structure pales in comparison to the 11,000-square-foot, air-conditioned collector’s garage built to fulfill any car enthusiast’s dreams.
The collector’s garage has glossy flooring and a vaulted ceiling, designed to display the best of the best when it comes to automobiles.
The fun doesn’t end there, though. There’s an outdoor pool—it is Florida, after all—pool house, two-story guesthouse, gatehouse, horse stables, game room, and workshop. With all of these amenities, is there any reason to ever leave home?
It’s at night though, says Smith, that the estate truly comes to life.
“There are over 1,000 lights that illuminate the property at night. It’s really something else to see in person.”
All this only a 25-minute drive to downtown Tampa? Plus proximity to St. Petersburg and the white-sand beaches of Clearwater? Yes, please. Someone wire us $22 million, pronto.
