The Property

NOT PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR SALE. APPRAISED FOR $13.8 MILLION.* NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! This riverfront masterpiece presents a luxurious, waterfront lifestyle within a setting of elegance and grandeur. Built in 2003 to serve as the primary residence of Bill and Betty Jane France (members of the family who founded and operate the NASCAR empire), the Property was designed, finished and furnished to the highest standards.

Though never previously offered for sale, the residence has appraised for +/- $13.8 million,* and offers 3.8 acres and 325-ft of private frontage on the Halifax River. Boaters will also appreciate the estate’s +/- 150-ft boat dock, suitable for several deep-water vessels.

With a main estate of +17,000 sf, a guesthouse of +1,700 sf and vast outdoor living spaces, large families and grand events are easily accommodated! Formal and informal spaces for entertaining occupy the first floor of the main residence, including a lovely “River Room” with impressive views, and an executive wing offering a library, office and document storage area.

The family suites are located on the residence’s upper level, with each spacious room boasting its own en-suite bath. There are three sumptuous guest suites in addition to the gorgeous master suite (although one suite is currently outfitted as the Property’s fitness center, complete with mirrored walls).

Sumptuous baths include soaking tubs and steam showers, and each bath’s vanity is custom made using various woods and stone. The Master Suite is unparalleled in size and amenities, with a grand vestibule, sitting area, and separate baths, dressing rooms and closets for him and her. There is also a breakfast kitchen for early morning coffee service.

Other unique Property features include a “hidden” wine cellar, private hair salon, pool, commercial-grade elevator and a large outdoor kitchen and lounge. And there’s no need to worry about selecting a decorator – this impressive estate is being sold furnished!

The Community

DAYTONA BEACH, FL. Situated 51 miles northeast of Orlando and its notable attractions, Daytona Beach is best known as a mecca for motorsports. Since the turn of the 20th century, the city’s hard-packed sand has been used (in restricted areas) for motorized vehicle races on the Old Daytona Beach Road Course, replaced in 1959 by the Daytona International Speedway.

Daytona Beach is home to the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR). Tourists from all over the world visit Daytona Beach to attend its various racing series and signature events, such as the Daytona 500, the Coke Zero 400 and thee Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance race.

In addition to its unrivaled position of prominence in United States stock car racing, Daytona Beach offers four excellent golf courses (the Daytona Beach Golf Course and the LPGA International each have two, 18-hole courses) and, of course, many miles of sand, sun and surfing along the Atlantic Ocean.

Shopping and dining at the Ocean Walk Shoppes and concerts at the historic Daytona Beach Bandshell – a unique venue that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999 – are other excellent ways to enjoy the home of the “most famous beach on earth!”

The Location

VOLUSIA COUNTY, FL. Bordered on the west by the St. Johns River and on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, Volusia County was created when the Florida Legislature divided Orange County in 1854. Now part of the Orlando-Deltona-Daytona Beach combined statistical area, Volusia County’s residents have grown from fewer than 600 in the late 1800’s to a current population of almost 500,000. The county seat of Deland, FL is where many of the county’s courts and governmental offices are located.

Volusia County is divided into three distinct regions: East Volusia (Greater Daytona Beach), Southeast Volusia (Greater New Smyrna Beach) and West Volusia (also called “St. Johns River Country”).

Local consumer confidence, an influx of new residents and capital investments in the area continue to drive the local economy, which is primarily comprised of professional and health care services, in addition to manufacturing. Major tourist attractions include boating, fishing and golfing. Of course, the county is also home to the world famous National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), a business and entertainment behemoth that was founded in 1948 by Bill France Sr., and remains in the ownership and control of the France family.
