The most iconic symbol of Americana is the Stetson Cowboy Hat. The highest standard of excellence defined John B. Stetson’s legacy brand and his luxurious home was no less perfect. Florida’s only “Gilded Age” mansion was built decades before places like Vizcaya or Ca d’Zan were even imagined. The largest, grandest and most modern house ever seen in Florida before the 20th century is also one of the first in the world designed and built with Edison electricity. Edison was a personal friend of Stetson, as were other notable guests of the mansion such as President and Mrs. Cleveland, King Edward the XII and Queen Alexandra, Henry Flagler and LC Tiffany. 10,000 panes of antique window glass reflect the 16 different intricate parquet wood floor patterns which are among the most beautiful in the world.. He was Florida’s first snow bird, a promoter of tourism, benefactor of its first private university, and builder of this region’s first electric power plant and ice making facility. New 3 car carriage house compliments completely restored and renovated Mansion, guest house, and greenhouse. This 1886 National Register Historic Place has no restrictions for alterations and comes turnkey with the best reputation in the state-named “Florida’s Most Popular Tourist Attraction” by Tripadvisor. Florida’s most historic estate can be enjoyed as a magnificent income producing private residence, wedding venue or corporate headquarters.
