16229 Villarreal De Avila

Privacy is unparalleled in this 28,000-square-foot brick waterfront estate situated on 3.4 acres of lush natural preserve within Avila Golf and Country Club. Enjoy amazing Florida views of the backyard lake, manicured lawn, and lush tree canopy, dripping in Spanish moss, from most rooms, including the grand entryway, master suite, conference room, and indoor basketball court, complete with a scoreboard, timeclock, water fountain, and bleachers. In this home, you’ll fall in love with the big picture and the tiny details. There’s a two-story racquetball court, exercise room, vintage movie theater, and a massive open floor game room featuring billiards, ping pong, and foosball tables. To go between floors, climb the steps of the sweeping grand marble staircase or take the elevator in the main hallway. For more recreation and relaxation, the swimming area includes a waterfall, slide, diving board, and infinity pool-inspired hot tub. Huge windows and high ceilings invite the Florida sunshine into your living room year-round, while four fireplaces keep the estate cozy on chilly winter nights. 

A covered walkway connects from the main living quarters to the 5,000-square-foot guest house, offering ample space for visiting family and friends or live-in assistance. An address in Avila reminds residents they live in one of the most exclusive gated communities in Tampa. Conceived by Bob Sierra, Avila’s 900 acres boast a par-71 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, premiere tennis facilities, and a country club. Gates are guarded 24 hours a day, providing unsurpassable security. All of this is under a 30-minute drive to top Tampa destinations like Clearwater Beach, Bern’s Steakhouse, Amalie Arena, or the airport. If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a private resort, welcome to your new home.
