Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty Named Marketing Agent for Restored Century-Old Mansion on Lake Carlton in Mount Dora, FL

MOUNT DORA, FL - Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty has been named exclusive sales and marketing agents for a unique century-old Mount Dora mansion, circa 1926, which includes 10.89 acres with nearly 1,000 feet of water frontage on Lake Carlton, part of the Harris Chain of Lakes.

Roger Soderstrom, founder and owner at Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty, said Janice McGeough, certified luxury home marketing specialist at the firm, is representing the property.

The four-bedroom, four-bath, 6,111 square foot luxury home has been completely restored with a state-of-the-art kitchen, a lavish private wine cellar, a grand master suite that overlooks the lake and an elaborate boat house with upstairs apartment.

The captivating Mount Dora estate is a luxurious masterpiece with all of the modern amenities available but it retains the charm of the early 20th century.
Horses are allowed, McGeough said, and new owners may possibly subdivide the property, which is zoned RCE.

The landscape is ample and the lake provides for helicopter and seaplane landing and take-off practically at your doorstep.

“This very private, very majestic property is a rare find,” McGeough said.
