"The Stetson Mansion, winter home of famous hat maker John B. Stetson, is Florida s first luxury estate and Florida s only Gilded Age mansion. Designed by noted architect George T. Pearson in 1886, this High Victorian masterpiece is on the National Register of Historic Places and has hosted guests such as President Grover Cleveland, King Edward the XII & Queen Alexandra, Henry Flagler and LC Tiffany. Thomas Edison was a personal friend and installed the electrical system, making this one of the first homes designed/built with Edison electricity. Every opulent detail was preserved in the restoration, from the 16 intricate parquet floor patterns to the 10,000 panes of leaded glass windows. An architectural historian seamlessly integrated old with new to provide modern conveniences without harming the home's integrity- 4 multiple-zone AC s, Cat 5 wiring, updated kitchens and baths. Gated 2.3 acre private estate with new carriage house/garage, guest house, pool, putting green, meditation garden and greenhouse. The mansion has 9 bedrooms, 11 new baths & 6 gas fireplaces. The carriage house has a kitchen, laundry and upstairs apartment. The 800 sq ft 1 bed/1 bath guest house with kitchen and laundry is the Stetson's former school house. Named by Tripadvisor as Florida s Most Popular Attraction', the Stetson Mansion is a spectacular and profitable income producing private residence that has endless possibilities as a family compound, tourist attraction, event venue, winery, or non-profit corporate headquarters."
