When entering the private drive for five lakefront estates, whether the first time or the last, Tusca Trail blends an instant serenity and peacefulness of leaving the rest of the busy world at the entrance! In a pastoral setting of nearly four acres, the late John Cather, designed and built this magnificent five bedroom, five and a half bath mansion to raise his family. Being the general contractor par excellence, John created all of the entrance doors using three inch pecky cypress that open with fingertip control. That is just the beginning! Almost every room in this exquisite mansion has a lakefront view except for one bedroom. The upstairs primary bedroom has a winterized porch for an excellent view of both sunrises and sunsets. The modern kitchen has elevated wood ceilings, granite countertops, and a Sub Zero refrigerator\freezer. Extra dining space is provided in the kitchen, in addition to a large dining room with a fireplace. If your family loves skiing, Little Lake Howell is one of the best ski lakes in Seminole County. A boathouse complete with dock and electric wench is provided. If you are equine enthusiasts, a stable, built like a fortress, is ready for up to six horses. Surrounding the salt reef pool is the ultimate summer kitchen with coquina rock cooking grill available for large parties. A large game room with fireplace, gym, overlook the pool area; plus, fifth bedroom next to 25 x 22 media room Mature landscaping adds the final touch to this paradise property!
