Founder of dental chains pays $2M+ for equestrian estate in Longwood

An Orlando-area businessman and dental clinic owner recently paid more than $2.09 million for an equestrian estate in Longwood.

Located in the 1100 block of Delk Road in Longwood, the rustic, 6,077-square-foot home lies on 10 fenced acres, much of it suitable for grazing horses. The property includes a guest house, a nine-stall barn with bathroom and air-conditioned tack room, separate hay shed, lighted arena and four-board fencing.


The buyers were James T. Katsur and Delores A. Katsur, who signed a deed Jan. 19 in Seminole County that was recorded five days later. The seller was Terri Lynn Barnhill, trustee of the Terri Lynn Barnhill Family Trust.

James Katsur, a doctor of dental medicine, is owner of Katsur Management Group Inc., which provides management services to dental institutions, including accounting, payroll, centralized billing, human resources and IT services.


The company was founded in 1989 and is based in Altamonte Springs. Katsur also has owned and operated dental practices since 1977, with 58 locations in five states.

Built in 2012, the wood, stucco and brick Longwood house was designed by custom builder Charles Clayton Construction.

The six-bed, five-and-a-half-bath home features stone and hardwood floors throughout, a gourmet kitchen fitted with top-line appliances including a gas cook-top, a full-house generator, outdoor summer kitchen, large fire pit and an oversized saltwater pool with spa and grotto, as well as cooling misters surrounding the home.

Records show the Katsurs also own a lakefront home on South Shadowbay Boulevard in Longwood.

Katsur is also a director and shareholder of Florida Capital Bank and Florida Capital Group, both based in Jacksonville.

Real estate company Fronk & Co. of Lake Mary represented Katsur in the transaction, while Bita Hooman of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estat represented the seller.
