                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About: I have enjoyed this magnificent estate for almost 20 years. I have practiced health care for over 35 years and enjoy boating, jet skiing, and motorcycle riding. Now retired from practice, I rent out this one of a kind estate when I spend time at some of my other homes. I am sure you and your guests will have an unbelievable vacation or event at this very special and unique property.

                      Why Tampa:
                      The five acres are very private and a private fence and massive gates around the propery insures privacy. Lake Keystone is a rare jewel of a lake, spring fed, no alligators, and no public access. Only lucky property owners get to enjoy this beautiful lake. The estate is set up like a resort with lounge chairs around the pool and lake. There is a private boat house directly on the lake, one of the few that were built in 1940. This boat house is the furthest one out on the lake and has fishing poles. The largest Bass even caught in Florida was on Lake Keystone. Neighbors on the lake also enjoy their privacy. For their consideration we absolutely do not allow loud noise or music after 10 pm in the back of the property by the lake. There are several boat rental options available to tour around the lake and view the beautiful estate homes on the lake, or to go fishing.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Guest enjoy a special and unique property. The mansion was modeled after a Villa on Lake Como in Italy and no expense was spared to produce exacting detail. Marble and tile was imported personally by the owner from Spain and Italy. Roof tile imported from South America. Detailed inlaid Mahogany decoration in the flooring and artist produced wall murals. Architectual detail abounds throughout the Mansion. Massive stone fireplace in great room. Professional photographers have returned here year after year for professional and glamour shots of famous clients. Lil Wayne and other famous guests have done video shots and commercial advertisers as well. Why not have a lifetime of memories while on vacation.
