Year Purchased: 2002

About: I am originally from California but fell in love with south Florida and made it home for years. I purchased the Young Mansion and did a extensive five year renovation to return the house to its former glory. My plans changed and I decided to move back to California. It was hard leaving this beautiful home; staying in the Young Mansion is a one of a kind experience, you feel like you are living in a Andalusian or Tuscan villa. Great experience!

Why Hollywood Lakes, Hollywood, FL, USA:
This house has it all. It is close to the beach and it is a Spanish/Moorish architectural masterpiece. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The place is so sophisticated it really gives you the experience of living in another era.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Huge pool, formal gardens, hardwood floors and cuban tile throughout the house. House was built with a unique craftsmanship that would be incredibly difficult to duplicate today. Insurance companies valued the replacement cost to reproduce a house of this magnitude to be valued at 5 million dollars because of the home's intricate details. The place is a destination unto itself and staying here is a total experience.
