Understated Old World elegance in this one of a kind lakefront estate in the Country Club of Orlando. This stately home, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright protege Ray Bennett, has a wonderful backstory - the interior doors and vaulted ceilings throughout the home have lovely beams hand-hewn from local pine trees. Travertine flooring features decorative tile insets throughout and stunning views of Spring Lake can be seen from most rooms. The kitchen is enhanced with custom tile from Spain and oversized horseshoe-shaped island with prep sink and range; charming sunroom with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The upstairs of the original home has a master and second bedroom, both very spacious with en suite bathrooms, walk-in closets and views of the lake. The oversized family room has wood-burning fireplace, beautifully enhanced by an antique mahogany mantel imported from a French chateaux. In 2014 a new master suite was added upstairs ("elevator ready") with wood flooring in the sitting area, his-and-hers closets, dual vanities, jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and custom lighting. Spectacular outdoor living spaces abound on this property. The backyard living spaces are drop-dead gorgeous with several sitting areas paved in Philipine Keystone and shaded by a centuries-old Live Oak outfitted with custom lighting. Resort style pool enhanced with spa grotto and outdoor shower. You must see this house to appreciate all of the wonderful features lovingly maintained and enjoyed over the years.
