The largest home in Hillsborough County

Once dubbed the largest home in Hillsborough County, the founder of Lazy Days RV is the owner of a sprawling estate on Lake Thonotosassa in Florida. That feels as though you stepped into your own wellness compound. Known as “The Oaks” because of the massive imported oak trees that adorn the property, the majestic 36,361 square foot country manor estate sits on 36 meticulously landscaped lush acres with handcrafted rolling hills, a guest house, pool cottage, horse stable and barn, and detached garage that can convert to an indoor sports arena for ice hockey or basketball.

This self-sustaining home is only twenty minutes from Downtown Tampa yet with the tranquility and spaciousness, The Oaks transports you from the urban sprawl into a beautiful lakeside paradise like no other. Indoors, The Oaks has a spacious state-of-the-art fitness room with yoga area and floor to ceiling windows. There are steam showers, private massage rooms with a detoxifying salt rock feature, infrared sauna, and lockers as well as a bowling alley to let off steam and enjoy some playtime. 

The sense of play and enjoyment continues outside of the home in the idyllic country setting along Lake Thonotosassa with barn area, six stables, grazing pasture, two-story boat dock, saltwater pool, poolside cottage, and outdoor firepit. Nights spent under the stars with the glow of the moon feel magical and rejuvenating in this majestic country space. The croquet lawn has a mile paved loop for walking, jogging, and fitness along with a separate go-cart race track. Outdoor garden with attached room for cutting flowers and washing fresh vegetables complete the meticulous design crafted towards harmony and self-care.

Lavish, luxe design merged with a holistic health-centric approach and resort-like amenities makes the largest home in Hillsborough County an ideal home for tapping into the wellness desires of the modern homeowner who seeks a holistic approach in balancing body, mind, and spirit.

Listed at $17.5M, the main home is 22,120 square feet with a Texas limestone facade, 6 bedrooms, 8 baths, 7 half baths, 7 car garage, and elevator access to all four levels. Throughout the compound, there are a total of 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and 17 half baths. Two of those bedrooms are in the guest house which provides an additional 1,568 square feet of luxury accommodations.
