Ben Carson’s Florida home can be yours for $1.2M
The 6,155-square-foot house was built in 1994 and features five bedrooms, four full baths and a half bath and three car garage.
But the highlights are in the details. “Mrs. Candy Carson did a masterful job herself” of decorating the home, said Arthur Martens of Engel & Völkers Florida, the listing agent.
Coffered ceilings are adorned with hand-painted inlays and arched display niches. Columns, marble floors, custom built-ins and remote-controlled window treatments are found throughout the home.
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light in and the master suite has views of both the lake and the golf course.
But the real centerpiece of the house? “For me, it is the grand entry,” said Martens. “It’s so palatial and beautiful with the golf course, water and pool in the foreground.”
The upgraded chef’s kitchen includes custom cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Sale of the home also includes an extra perk for avid golfers — a Premier Golf membership package which includes access to the three Nicklaus family-designed courses at Ibis Golf and Country Club.
Ben Carson is a retired neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate.
The Carsons bought the home for $775,000 in 2013 from John Rooney, who along with his family, owns the Pittsburgh Steelers. They recently upgraded to a 8,782-square-foot, Palm Beach Gardens home which they purchased for $4.375 million.
