Descriptive Walkthrough:

Brant Manor displays a regal appearance with its lush landscaping and circular driveway on an oversized corner lot with grand oak trees. Entering through the double-doors into the foyer, you’ll notice thick crown molding, chair railing and hardwood floors throughout. From here, you may enter the Great Room or Gaming Areas to engage in a round of billiards in front of the ornate fireplace. Continue on to the Parlor for cards or board games complete with bar area and piano, which leads to the open Kitchen and Great Room, perfect for entertaining.

Brant Manor’s Designer Kitchen is a cook’s delight with long exotic granite countertops, custom European style cabinetry, beautiful wood details, and all stainless steel appliances. Also featured is a wine and beverage center, island and clear stained glass accents. Guests can enjoy meals together at the formal marble table, kitchen bar or breakfast table while still interacting with friends and family in the spacious Great Room. Running alongside the pool and lanai, the Great Room is perfect as the home’s comfortable gathering and movie hub with its fireplace and 60" flat screen HDTV. A maid’s quarters with separate entrance functions as an additional bedroom and office while the pool bath with shower, half bath and generous laundry room with laundry shoot complete the downstairs living area.

The expansive screened in lanai is complete with brick pavers and an outdoor kitchen with grill and bar seating for four. Skylights allow sunshine to peek through the cool, covered dining area with a table for twelve overlooking the pool and lake. This is where you’ll share plenty of laughter, bask on loungers, float in the resort-size pool or sit back for a good read while listening to the gentle waterfall. On cooler days and starlit evenings, relieve stress in the hot tub fit for ten. For anglers, walk down to the dock and cast away for some fresh water fishing amongst the lily pads.

After a rinse in the pool bath, make your way up the wood columned staircase with stained glass window to the second story. A long balcony lines the front of the house where Guests can catch another lake view across the street or bid visitors adieu. The private Master Bedroom Suite is set apart from the rest of the home complete with walk-in closets, flat screen TV and a bright sitting area. Open the double doors to a screened in balcony overlooking the pool and natural lake setting. There is plenty of space and storage in the Master Bathroom with dual sinks, large shower and jetted tub, all leading to an additional private balcony. Continue down the sky-lit hall to six additional bedrooms and three full bathrooms, alleviating the need to share with all your family members or colleagues. Newly renovated bathroom motifs are contemporary classic and bedroom décor is set to a comfortable, stylish standard throughout. Brant Manor can sleep a maximum capacity of 20 guests comfortably but is an excellent arrangement for smaller parties with guests seeking their own suite experience.

There is plenty of parking space in the circular or side driveway, located in front of the three car garage. A Publix Supermarket is nearby and I-275 grants access to Downtown Tampa in nearly 15 minutes. Guests have excitement at their fingertips with fine dining, shopping, nightlife and attractions. But don’t be surprised if you find yourself back at Brant Manor for the peace, relaxation and sunshine the Florida lifestyle surely delivers.

About Paul @ America Land & Lease

Nice to meet you! I take great pride in my Tampa homes but travel often. I make it available for rent through America Land & Lease for those seeking a beautiful, lakefront setting and ample space for relaxation or entertaining. Thanks for considering my property.

Paul @ America Land & Lease purchased this house in 2015

Why Paul @ America Land & Lease chose Lake Brant

I purchased this property because it has been so beautifully updated with detail and love from the previous owners. When I pulled up the circular drive it had a special stately quality but without being overwhelming. It's comfortable for small or larger groups of families and friends. I couldn't believe all this house had to offer with its rural setting and lake frontage only 15 minutes to downtown Tampa.

What makes this house unique

Everything in this home is quality, detailed and spacious, with details such as: crown molding, chair railing, stained glass windows and cabinetry, and a gorgeous kitchen. There are skylights everywhere allowing for natural light and the outdoor area is wonderful for entertaining. Brant Manor provides all the benefits of a Florida countryside manor right outside the city.

Great Tampa Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year in Tampa for our annual golf trip. In the past years we have stayed elsewhere but because of a mix-up we had to find a new home to stay in. They say change is good, in this case change was "GREAT". Brant Manor is everything is says is and more. Having stayed in many homes over the years, this stay was one of the best. The kitchen and dining areas were well stocked and configured to accommodate our group of 12 guys. The pool and hot tub clean and worked perfectly. Everyone felt comfortable and relaxed. We are already planning next years trip and have shared with Paul we would like to book the home once again.

Fantastic Family Friendly home

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Brant Manor was a amazing house for my family or as my six year old granddaughter exclaimed as she entered the house "Oh, Mimi, Ooh-la-la, Ooh-la-la!!!" Her words keep repeating in my mind when it came to writing a review. This vacation home was everything that was advertised ~ very spacious, beautifully decorated, well equipped kitchen, clean and well maintained home. My family, six adults and 4 grandchildren - 7, 6 1/2, 6 years old and a 6 month old baby so enjoyed our Thanksgiving week in Tampa! The adults utilized the billiard room & parlor for some adult fun and the office to handle business and conference calls. The grand kiddos loved the pool & hot tub, board games, riding bikes and jogging in the wonderful neighborhood. It's vast kitchen, dining, and family room area handled our 3 families well. The home's beautiful landscaping was an ideal setting for our family photo session. Great Thanksgiving memories! Anytime I had a question for Paul, he promptly answered and was very accommodating to our requests . His great personality was displayed in each of our communications. I would definitely stay at Brant Manor again in future trips to Tampa. It was a fantastic family friendly "Home Away"!

The home was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything it was advertised to be.. It was clean & well maintained. I would recommend to others. The kids had a good time, never bored, we had such a great time. Paul was so helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed the beach, Bubba Gumps, The Starlite dinner cruse, shopping. We had some difficulty with the tropical storms, but who can plan for that. It was a wonderful vacation!

Beatutiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is stunning! We fit 16 people very comfortably. The location is amazing - Bush Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, the Lowry Park Zoo, and more are all within a short drive. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and refreshing. There is nothing quite like sitting in the hot tub overlooking a beautiful lake. The owner, Paul, was very easy to work with. All emails were answered promptly and he was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again!
