Luxury equestrian estate in Eustis sells for $2.9M

Former software company president Peter Vogelberger, and wife Sheila, just bought a luxury equestrian estate in Eustis that spans nearly 70 acres.

According to a recently recorded deed in Lake County, the couple paid $2.9 million for the property, which includes a 9,800-square-foot home, 2,100-square-foot guest house and a horse barn with seven stalls.


The sellers, Bryan and Elizabeth Hurley, bought the entirety of the property in two separate transactions: one in 2003 and another in 2016. In total, the couple spent $1.2 million assembling the property.

The barn and guest house were built in 1998, while the luxury six-bedroom house on Lake Seneca Road was built in 2009.


Each room in the six-bedroom house features its own bathroom. In addition, the house was built to include an elevator, media room, two offices, four-car garage, Koi pond and resort-style saltwater pool and spa area.

The property also features 5,000 square feet of studio work-space large enough to fit an RV or collectible vehicles such as classic cars, as online marketing material shows.

According to, the property has been on and off the market since 2018, when the sellers asked for as high as $3.6 million.

Kara Wisely with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty represented the sellers, and Robin Dailey with Keller Williams Cornerstone Realty brought the buyers.

Peter Vogelberger served as president and CEO of software company Chesapeake System Solutions Inc. from 1993 till 2016, after Chesapeake System Solutions merged with software company Trintech.
