The custom estate home of State Senator Jeremy Ring and his wife Sharon will be up for auction on February 4. Originally asking $3.25 million for the Tuscan-styled estate in Parkland, the home will now be sold to the highest bidder who meets or exceeds a bid price of $1.25 million.
Situated on 2.5 manicured acres, the estate includes 7 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths, and nearly 8,900 square feet of interior living space. It was custom-built by its current owners, Senator Jeremy Ring and his wife Sharon. Prior to beginning his career in public service as a member of the Florida State Senate, Mr. Ring enjoyed tremendous success in the private sector as an early-stage executive at internet giant Yahoo!.
The Rings designed the property with meticulous attention to detail and a very high standard of construction quality. For example, the second level of the residence is composed of poured concrete, which, according to Platinum, is a rare feature in residential construction – even for multimillion-dollar homes. “This house will be standing long after all of us are gone,” said David Enriquez, Platinum’s vice president of operations.
“I don’t think we could have selected a better property for our first luxury auction in Parkland,” added Brad Pruitt, Platinum’s director of business development. “Not only does the city have an excellent reputation as a place for families, but it’s also a haven for equestrian enthusiasts, in addition to quite a few professional athletes.” Pruitt cited NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino, in addition to a number of other NFL and NBA players, as past or current Parkland residents.
The Tuscan ambiance of the residence begins upon arrival, as one is greeted by a picturesque, courtyard-like entryway with custom landscaping, a water fountain, and a stone-accented facade. Inside the home, the Tuscan themes continue, with lofted ceilings, exposed beams and trusses made of repurposed woods from New England barns, and beautiful hardwood flooring,
The estate provides plenty of amenities for those wanting to spend quality time with family and friends, including a newly refinished tennis court, a resort-style pool and spa with rock waterfall features and swim-up grotto, and a screened patio that includes a summer kitchen and ample entertainment space. Additional features include a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a state-of-the-art home theater, fitness center with wet bar, a Lutron lighting system and a Crestron home automation system. Those who are safety-conscious will appreciate the home’s hurricane-resistant windows and doors, a built-in security system with multiple cameras, and a generator that powers the home’s core systems in the event of a power outage.
Jeremy Ring, 45, currently serves as a member of the Florida Senate representing the 29th District which includes Coral Springs and Parkland. He has been representing western Broward County, since 2012, and prior to that, representing the 31st District from 2006 to 2012.
According to Bloomberg Business, prior to his political career, Ring joined a team of forward thinking entrepreneurs as the first outside sales executive with Yahoo!, launching the companies New York office from his apartment and opened the first East Coast office. During his tenure with Yahoo, it rose to global prominence by generating over $1 billion in sales during its first five years of existence. Prior to relocating to Florida in 2001, his responsibility at Yahoo! included worldwide overseeing of the creation of sales programs for all clients during this period. He went on to lead Yahoo’s Sales programs group.
