Welcome to The Winter Park Lakeview Estate, a two-acre, contemporary paradise with panoramic views of Lake Maitland on the Winter Park Chain. Designed by NBA star Horace Grant, expanded by Alan Ginsburg, and featured in the Wall Street Journal, this iconic estate is just a short walk to trendy Park Avenue bistros and shops. Glass walls span the rear of the home overlooking the pool’s waterfall and sweeping lake views, sitting on 140-feet of lake frontage. A grand entrance greets you with a dramatic marble foyer, a beautiful Chihuly chandelier and a curved open staircase. Designed for entertaining, the first floor includes a gourmet kitchen, game room with bar, theater, gym, detached guest suite, and family room with fireplace, bar and sliding glass walls, which open to a screened lanai offering summer kitchen with grill, wet bar and bath. Nearby, a newly added expansive ballroom accommodates 200 guests with wet bar and service kitchen. An elevator showcasing original Chihuly glass grants access to the second level with five bedrooms and the master retreat. A private balcony and staircase provides ultimate privacy for the owner’s quarters. The pool deck was designed for large gatherings and features terraced gardens, spa, heated infinity-edge pool and a summer kitchen. Marble steps lead to a boathouse, covered dock and lift, and sitting areas overlooking Lake Maitland. This beautiful estate was built in 2000 and maintained to perfection by four full-time house and maintenance managers.
