This fascinating Orlando home was designed by an award-winning resort architect


This incredible four-bedroom, three-bath home is considered one of Orlando's most interesting, in no small part because it was designed by a well-known published author and hospitality resort architect with a "contemporary industrial" style. Reduced from $1,350,000 in May to $1,155,000 this month, its sprawling 4,250 square feet sit on a half-acre waterfront lot, where poolside views overlook spring-fed Lake Conway.

The living space has 18-foot ceilings with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall to bring natural light inside all day long. Turkish travertine and Italian porcelain finishes are found throughout, with Saltillo tile, pecky cypress, red-oak floors and custom Poggenpohl kitchen cabinets. A steel-beamed loft provides a fine creative space, and a round dining room surrounded by glass block is the perfect setting for guests. The master bedroom has a high-vaulted cedar ceiling, dressing room and sitting area, a built-in desk, walk-in closet and private balcony. The guest wing has a two bedrooms with a full bathroom, two walk-in closets and game room, all with their own sliding-glass doors leading to the lake.

The property has a three-hole putting green and 18 feet of Sea Ray ski-boat stays for year-round boating, waterskiing and swimming, plus it's close to Orlando International Airport.
