Mystic Lake Manor, a popular gay castle in Florida, sells for $425K

A former men-only, gay castle in Florida recently sold.

Located at 2398 W U.S. Hwy-90, in Madison, the 6,334-square-foot castle home is locally known as Mystic Lake Manor.

Originally constructed in 1995 by the late Tallahassee-based restaurant supply businessman Joe Nahoom, and his wife Joyce,  the estate was meant to be a family home, but it was sold a few years later to new owners, who, for many years, used the castle as a popular gay, clothing-optional, weekend retreat.

"Unfortunately, one of the owners recently passed away, and so it hasn’t been a resort in a few years," listing agent Jessica Webb, of Main Street Realty, told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay.

The property was originally listed last February for $750,000, but was sold last April for $425,000.

The estate comes with a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as an indoor heated pool, two Jacuzzis, several indoor fountains, a game room, and more.
