Default Sebring Go-Cart Mansion

Okay, this post has very little, if anything, to do with racing. I'll admit it right up front and spare you the joy of lampooning me. But I confess to a morbid fascination with extremely large homes in areas mostly filled with trailer parks. Sebring, Florida, as most of you know, is generally not recognized for its housing. It's a desolate and depressing haven for retirees and rednecks in double-wides. Lakefront mansions? Nope. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this place... a $3.864,000 million, 10 bathroom, 5 bedroom, 13,852 sqft McMansion on the north shore of Lake Jackson...with a GO CART TRACK IN THE BACK YARD. Okay, you can return to what you were doing. I just wanted to point this out.



Sebring has a population of 9,667 and a median income of $23,555.

Alan Jay's house. He is a big supporter of Sebring International Raceway and is a pretty good shoe behind the wheel of a car.

That's half the residential tax base for Sebring right there.

And it looks like his next door neighbor is the other half

Some people put bowling alley's or theaters in their house... pretty cool to see a go-kart track. Seems like some here knows who he is -- perhaps he has young kids? Pretty awesome dad if so! Better than a tree house!

According to county records, he bought an existing house on the 2.09 acre lot in March 1997 for $370,000 and knocked it down. The new home was built in 2010. The garage is 1,400 square feet and has 10 parking spaces. The driveway has $88,000 of pavers. The home has a wine cellar and tasting room...and an elevator...marble flooring, a dock, boathouse and gazebo. The go cart track was built in 2010 for $66,000. For taxation purposes, the county values the home at $1,940,125.
