Some of the pictures have been virtually staged. This beautiful three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath custom home has 3,245 square feet of air-conditioned living space, a 140 square foot air-conditioned storage room above the three-car garage, and the garages are also air conditioned. The back and front covered porches total 500 square feet. In the back of the house there is a 250 square foot ironwood deck, and a 200 square foot workshop with electricity in the back yard. The lot is a wooded acre and the large back yard (1/4 acre) has an 8’ tall cypress T&G privacy fence. The house has a well and septic system, with a lawn irrigation system.
The exterior wall construction is “ICF” (insulated concrete form) with 8” thick, steel reinforced poured concrete, with a one inch thick stucco cover (three coats over metal lath)...and one quarter of the house has a decorative ledgestone veneer. The architectural shingle roof is one year old.
Ceiling heights vary from 10’-8” to a lofty 21 cedar cathedral ceiling in the great room. The walls and ceiling are super insulated to an R value of 30, and the windows and glass doors are double paned, keeping energy costs to a minimum. Because the house is so well sealed, the inside air is continuously freshened by a 24/7 air exchanger. The complete air conditioning system was replaced two years ago.
The entry, hallways, kitchen, dining room and master bath have Italian porcelain floors; the great room and office have °Z4” solid oak floors; the master bedroom is carpeted and the two bedrooms have tiled floors. All cabinetry is the finest custom work by AWR Cabinets. The oversized front entry door is 350 pounds of mahogany with a Rocky Mountain cast bronze knocker (70 lbs.), and matching cast bronze throw bolt and lockset. The great room has a 48” gas fireplace located on a 21’ high stone wall, mahogany mantle, bar top (on a 14’ bar) door and window casings.
The kitchen has two 36” Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer units, Dacor ovens, Thermador gas cooktop and Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen nook table is a multi-level custom by AWR, with granite tops, and seats 10 easily. There is a walk-in pantry and an abundance of windows.
The master suite features an oversized travertine shower, whirlpool tab, and large walk-in closet with cedar-lined walls. The office has a built-in partners desk with lots of cabinetry, but this room can easily be converted into a fourth bedroom.
A county park with boat ramp on Lake Jessup is one mile away. The house is two miles away from the 417 Greenway; four miles away from the 5anford airport (you never hear airplanes because of the favorable orientation of the runways) and eight miles to Interstate 4. The location is quiet, relaxed and yet conveniently located to Sanford, Lake Mary and Orlando. There is a low tax base and no homeowners association fees. This home represents true luxury living at an affordable price.
