For Sale: Famed Florida Aviation Community
The storied Jumbolair aviation community in Marion County, Florida has been listed for sale for $10.5 million. John Travolta, the community’s most famous resident, lives in a 6,600 square foot airport-themed home that served as home base for his Boeing 707. (Travolta recently donated the jet to an Australian aviation museum.)
Jumbolair was first developed as a thoroughbred ranch by Muriel Vanderbilt (a descendant of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt) and later purchased by Arthur Jones, inventor of the Nautilus fitness machine. Jones named the farm Jumbolair, and for a time it was home to 63 baby elephants that were the center of a national controversy.
The property for sale includes the runway, an additional 550 acres, about 90,000 square feet of warehouse space, a 7,696-square-foot mansion and a large banquet facility.
