The Orlando home of SunTrust president Joel R. Wells is now for sale, and it looks like an ’80s shopping mall
Legacies are a funny thing.
You can be a titan of industry your entire life, a well-respected man about town. But once you're in the ground, you have no control over anything you've built. That goes double for your home, as can be seen in this vacated Longwood mansion. Formerly owned by the President of SunTrust Bank Joel R. Wells, the years since his stewardship have left the property looking like a vacated '80s shopping mall.
The home has been owned since the '80s by Daboor Holdings (Wells passed in 1991) and it doesn't look like they were the type to make updates. The absolutely chic mansion in the late '80s now appears to be a time capsule. The carpet's design looks like the graphics from Saved By The Bell and the chrome handrails along the home's upper terrace look like they are steps from a Sam Goody. Throughout the home, the carpeting is covered in jazzy geometric shapes. Where there isn't carpet, the floor is either a shiny shade of black or a stark white. The pool, for what it's worth, is rather nice.
The home is listed at 808 Sweetwater Club Boulevard is listed for $2.1 million.
