An exquisite Chain of Lakes offering awaits the most discerning of lakefront homebuyers in the heart of Winter Park. Being presented for the first time on the market, this meticulous masterpiece was built by Carlos Posada and boasts authentic Charleston architecture with the utmost attention to detail throughout. The main home has +/-5,100 square feet and the bonus room over the garage has an additional +/-800 square feet. Upon arrival, you are greeted by a beautiful brick paver driveway that winds through lush landscaping with a mature tree canopy and gorgeous greenery. The solid mahogany double entry doors invite you inside to a gracious interior flooded with natural light. Complemented with reclaimed gorgeous hardwood flooring throughout, the first floor is comprised of spacious living areas that are perfect for entertaining. The gourmet kitchen welcomes the chef in the family with inset cabinetry, a 60-inch Viking range, a large island with seating and a spacious dining area with a fireplace. A separate dining area is just down the hall for more formal occasions with doors opening to a fabulous private courtyard with fountain. Family and friends can gather in the great room, adorned with built-ins and a wall of windows and doors that offer awe-inspiring views of the pool and lake. Retreat to the first-floor master suite, a secluded escape with French doors that lead to the outside, along with a spa-like master bath complete with dual vanities, a soaking tub and a separate double-head shower. With three more bedrooms and an open loft upstairs, there is plenty of room to accommodate family and friends. Meanwhile, recreation abounds with a bonus room over the three-car garage. Complete with a full bath and private entry, this space offers plenty of entertainment flexibility or would work well as an additional, private fifth-bedroom suite. Further features include a side entry with a mudroom and a large laundry room. An opulent oasis, the sprawling backyard (arguably the best lot with a deeper peninsula on the eastern shore of Lake Mizell) encompasses a paver patio with a seating area and overlooks the stunning pool area. The stunning scenery is enhanced with lovely lake views and a boat dock on the water. Ideally situated on Lake Mizell and set back from the street, this home is adjacent to the Windsong community but is one of only four lakefront properties without the HOA obligation. For your picturesque piece of paradise, this remarkable residence embodies luxury living at its finest.
