About The Owner

I was originally from southern California and fell in love with south Florida which I made my home for years. I purchased the Young Mansion and did an extensive five year renovation to return the house to its former glory. Living in the Young Mansion was a one of a kind experience, you felt like you were living in a Andalusian or Tuscan villa.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Hollywood Lakes

This house has it all. It is close to the beach and it is a Spanish/Moorish architectural masterpiece. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The place is so sophisticated it really gives you the experience of living in another era.

What makes this house unique

Huge pool, formal gardens, hardwood floors and cuban tile throughout the house. House was built with a unique craftsmanship that would be incredibly difficult to duplicate today. Insurance companies valued the replacement cost to reproduce a house of this magnitude to be valued at 5 million dollars because of the home's intricate details. The place is a destination unto itself and staying here is a total experience.

Loads of character and a great outdoor area

  • 4 of 5

Very cool, historic house! We had a large group of 15 moms who wanted to get away to sunny Florida for a weekend and this house worked out well. We spent the majority of our time out by the pool or at the huge square dining room table for our meals. Pros: the pool area, the dining room table, the price. Cons: the kitchen, the very old bed linens and the inability to open the windows (musty smelling). We enjoyed walking to the Hollywood boardwalk many times and took a day trip to Miami's South Beach. Thanks to the owner, Richard, for his excellent communication and customer service.
