This beautiful home is situated in one of Windermere’s most prestigious gated communities on an abundantly landscaped lot approximately one-acre in size. Its courtyard entrance is charming and leads to a double door entry which opens to a dramatic interior with extraordinary Mediterranean elements such as rich beamed, hand-painted, high ceilings that tower over rich marble flooring.
The rear of the home boasts large expanses of glass walls and doors which overlook a 54’ wide courtyard accented by a stunning, large 3-tiered European style fountain which is the center of attention! (This is the perfect setting for a grand get-together of family and friends!). The courtyard is embraced by a lush Florida landscape and adjoins a hotel-style oversized free-form Swimming Pool and a fabulous Spa set in a grotto. You will love this setting!!
The voluminous interior space is thrilling and boasts an open floor plan where living spaces are designed for function and aesthetic appeal. The formal rooms boast two-story ceilings! The formal Living Room shares a double sided stone Fireplace with a 20’ Gallery leading to the first floor Master Suite and a handsome, custom-designed Home Office with beautiful woodworking! On the opposing side of the floor plan is a formal two-story Dining Room with a Wine Cellar and an alcove which leads to the family living areas.
Family living areas include a fabulous Kitchen with two islands, one of which has a snack/serving bar. There is a spacious breakfast area in the Kitchen overlooking the Pool/Terrace area. The Kitchen offers high-quality appliances, gas cooking, a message center, pantry and “miles” of granite counters.
