This jaw-dropping Maitland mega-mansion is still for sale on Manor Road
One of Maitland's most desirable homes has ten bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms inside of 13,100 total square feet – all on its own two-acre lot. But the real attraction is this mega-mansion's panoramic Lake Maitland views and an "exceedingly rare" sense of privacy and seclusion, all just a few minutes' drive from downtown Orlando.
The home is one of the luxurious, gated Winter Park Chain of Lakes estates. The main house is enormous but its "sophisticated, flexible" floor plan was constructed to fit every lifestyle by international architects and designers including Kamal Rizk and Dirk Arace, who blended design from the past with modern-day features and amenities. It's been renovated and expanded within the past few years, and houses six of the estate's bedrooms, with seven full baths, and two guest baths, with a downstairs "master retreat," guest suite, home office and wine cellar with wine-tasting room. The kitchen was updated in 2016 with quartz counters, stainless appliances, a butler pantry and tons of storage space. Floating stairs take you up to a second-story, three-bedroom suite, bonus room and balcony. There's an "entertainment wing" with a home theater, full gym and locker room, sauna and steam room, lounge with custom bar and an upstairs conference room.
The guest cottage is a two-bedroom guest house with a four-car garage and workshop. The grounds were designed by world-renowned landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, and emulate a five-star resort with oversized infinity pool and spa that flows into two wading pools, with a sunken fire pit, enormous summer kitchen, putting green, lighted tennis courts, a sandy beach, a two-bay boathouse and more than 218 feet of lake frontage.
Oh yes, and it comes with a movie theater. The $7.5 million listing is held by Zoltan Kecskes of Fannie Hillman and Associates, and it's worth a look inside.
