Full Throttle Luxury: Inside $40 Million Florida Estate That Leaves Others in The Dust

This extravagant Florida estate would lead the pack if luxury had a Formula One race. Previously owned by British racing driver Nigel Mansell, this $40 million property is speeding into the spotlight, leaving other luxury homes in its dust.

Located at 802 Druid Road, Clearwater, Florida, the mansion doesn’t just dabble in luxury – it floors the accelerator, taking opulence to the next level. This lavish property features three houses, 30 bedrooms, a 10-car garage, a full-size basketball court, a tennis court, and three swimming pools. With a hefty price tag of $39.9 million, it’s no wonder this Clearwater gem has captured the imagination of luxury enthusiasts.

But the estate’s appeal goes beyond its luxurious features. Once home to F1 racer Nigel Mansell, the property also has historical significance. It even boasts its own watchtower, as it served as a military fort in the early 19th century.

Eager to share the mansion’s unique offerings, current owner Dr. Stephen Hess invited YouTuber Enes Yilmazer to film a comprehensive tour. Yilmazer, no stranger to luxury, was blown away by the estate’s grandeur, exclaiming, “[It] blows my mind away that something like this exists.”

Entering the main house, built in 1915, Yilmazer described its architectural style as Mediterranean with “colonial qualities.” He began the tour in a formal seating area off the main hall, which includes built-in cabinetry and windows facing the motor court.

Yilmazer continued through the pristine kitchen, showcasing white cabinetry, a large center island, and a high-end Aga cooker oven. Other ground-floor highlights include a wine cellar, an additional formal seating area, and a grand dining room with seating for ten.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the awe-inspiring ballroom, featuring 35-foot high beamed ceilings, marble floors, and a colossal chandelier. An adjacent room houses a grand piano, perfect for musical soirees.

Yilmazer interviewed Dr. Hess and contemporary artist Super Buddha in the ballroom during his stay. Dr. Hess fondly recalled the “very magical journey” of living at 802 Druid Road, watching his children grow up swinging from the 300-year-old oak trees and playing on the basketball court.

Moving upstairs, Yilmazer discovered a regal movie theater, a wood-paneled office with Nigel Mansell’s signature etched in gold on the floor, and plush Versace carpet lining the landing area. He also showcased the master suite, featuring hardwood floors, a seating area, a travertine coffee table, a fireplace, and a TV.

The master bathroom boasts a massive built-in jetted tub, while the walk-in closet features a Louis Vuitton print carpet and dozens of shoes on display. In addition to the main house, the estate includes two other properties, one with seven bedrooms and another with three.

Ample parking space is available for cars, and two docks outside the home accommodate super yachts. As the tour concluded, Dr. Hess shared some wisdom, stating, “Money comes and goes… but one of the things you’re never going to get back is time, so it’s the experiences that really count.”

Dr. Hess believes the next owner of the home will be “very blessed,” as they’ll have the chance to create magical moments and memories that aren’t possible in other properties. With this remarkable estate on the market, it’s clear that the race for luxury has never been more exhilarating.
