Single Family Residence
Presenting a spectacular 6 bedroom, 5 bath, award-winning designed lakefront residence. Built prominently on a hill, overlooking Winter Park’s beautiful 170-acre Lake Sue, this almost 2/3-acre property was designed as an “extension of a beautiful “English Lake Manor House” inspired vernacular and features stone walls, statues, and English gardens. Constructed in 2013, inspiration was derived by the owners’ desire to build a LEED Gold home featuring the latest energy saving technologies available in America. The result is a showpiece lakefront Orlando residence that surprises visitors with the warmth of an Old World Estate throughout all its details, and dazzles with American engineering, energy efficiency, and sustainable design through its construction and systems. The spacious 7,000-square-foot footprint of this residence was meticulously designed. There are three distinct structures: a main home, a 600-square-foot guest apartment, and a 600-square-foot screened boathouse which hovers over the lake, more than 40 feet from the shore. The main home design maximizes the stunning lake views from every room and features an expansive layout that includes the main “Lake Room” which showcases a 20’ tall casement window facade that bathes the room in filtered sunlight all day and provides 270 degree views of the lake, a first-floor primary suite with double master baths, 3 guest rooms, and a second floor bonus room that has been laid out to allow room for a 6th and 7th bedroom if needed. LOGIX ICF construction (Insulated Concrete Forms) was chosen to create an energy-efficient building envelope that ensures the warm and humid Florida weather does not impact the comfortable living environment inside the home. Two stage, zoned Lennox XP21 A/C systems further optimize the use of energy throughout the home. Lennox I-Comfort thermostats make temperature management simple and efficient by control from the home or mobile device. To take full advantage of the indoor/outdoor Florida lifestyle, the home features two large, covered screened porches with water views. The rear loggia includes an outdoor kitchen and overlooks a pool that at night is brilliantly lit by colored LED lighting, and becomes a seamless extension of the house thanks to a 16’ wall of sliding glass doors. Located in the highly-desirable Lake Shore Drive and Rose Isle neighborhood, this home is one of Orlando and Winter Park area’s finest… Reserve a private showing today.
