A report from the Wall Street Journal has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur owner, Joe Lewis has listed his Florida mansion, worth $14.95m (£11.2m), for sale.
Lewis owns Tavistock Group, which has investments in more than 200 companies across 13 countries, one of these being ENIC which holds the majority stake in Tottenham.
According to WSJ, the Tottenham owner’s 17,000 square feet Florida home is modelled after a manor house in Berkshire with classical columns and statues.
The ceiling mouldings, corbels and trims in the mansion have reportedly been reclaimed from 19th-century houses in the United Kingdom.
The mansion is said to be filled with period decor including an elaborate marble floor inspired by a manor house belonging to English aristocrats in Derbyshire and a sweeping mahogany staircase.
The property, which sits between the seventh hole fairway and the eighth hole tee box in the high-end golfing community, is also said to have a movie theatre, a gym and a spa.
The report claims that Lewis, who spends most of his time in the Bahamas, is selling the property because he is not spending enough time there.
