Single Family Residence
Located in the prestigious Via’s of Winter Park, this timeless home was custom-built on ½ an acre, and has been meticulously maintained by the original owners. The high-quality construction, intricate details, and an additional $1.8 million in renovations, additions, & upgrades over the years, including a NEW roof (2021) & NEW upstairs AC unit (July 2022), make this exquisite home feel like new. Beyond the expanded, circular brick drive, surrounded by distinguished new landscaping and lighting, you’ll enter a grand foyer that welcomes you with 22-foot ceilings and stunning hardwood floors in every direction. The bright, sunny living and dining rooms are separated by a double-sided gas fireplace and lined with French doors that offer views to the sprawling back lanai. The first floor features a front-facing private office, a powder bath, and a completely renovated (2020) chef’s kitchen/family room combo, where 22-foot ceilings and expansive windows accentuate the views of the backyard fountain and garden. Enjoy the brand-new kitchen of your dreams, featuring double islands with sinks, 2 refrigerator drawers, Subzero appliances, a 6-burner Thermador gas cooktop with a copper hood, and a dinette area overlooking the patio, pool, and summer kitchen. The first floor is complete with 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths, plus a large laundry room wrapped in cabinets, with a sink, ice maker, and storage closet with a safe. Head up to the 2nd floor from either the grand front staircase, the back private staircase, or ride the elevator (2011), where you’ll find an open den with built-in cabinetry/desk, a wet bar, and surround sound speakers. The 2nd story Main Suite offers a sitting area, his & her walk-in closets, and a completely renovated Main Bathroom (2018). The 4th guest bedroom and full bath are located on the opposite end, accessible from a back private staircase entrance. Solid hardwood floors span the entire home, including the bedrooms, while new porcelain tiles extend from the kitchen to the family room. The back covered lanai was a $300K+ addition (2010) that added a new dimension of living space to this home. The 1,100 SF lanai is complete with oscillating mister fans that spread across the wood-beamed ceiling and retractable screens across the back. The vast patio space offers a summer kitchen like no other, with a full-size Subzero refrigerator and freezer, Wolf warming drawer, deep fryer, Wolf gas grill (2020), durable composite cabinetry with granite counters, and a wrap-around bar. This magnificent outdoor living space opens up to the sparkling resurfaced pool, spa, and sun shelf. The pergola offers shade for lounging or dining by the gas fireplace (2021), and the backyard boasts a fountain and charming gazebo & swing, all wrapped in a concrete block wall, making this ½ acre feel like a private fortress.
