This mid-century modern estate for sale in Longwood is a tennis lover’s dream
What do you do with a seven-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bathroom Longwood home with a custom-designed tennis and basketball court? Easy: You host giant, weekend-long parties with friends and family.
This enormous 8,525-square-foot house on its own 4.7-acre parcel of lush, verdant land in Sweetwater Club Estates is a sports lover's dream come true. Every room of the house features its unique shapes and architecture, but the amenities make this home something special.
You first notice the right angles of the house from the circular driveway, a preview of the geometric experiences in store. You'll push apart the hand-scraped hardwood doors to peer inside the "artfully renovated estate." The foyer is illuminated by seven multi-panel windows, which you'll notice just as you pass through the French doors and into the formal dining room, with its etched crown molding and sparkling crystal chandelier. From there, you pass into the tray-ceiling family room.
The ground floor has its own office, and expansive bay windows, with marble flooring throughout. The state-of-the-art kitchen is a chef's fantasy, with a working breakfast island, two serving bars, a double oven, two refrigerators and an island range, plus all high-end, stainless-steel appliances. Grande staircases take you upstairs, where a movie theater kitchenette, living room and atrium eating nook serve as a gathering spot for the upstairs bedrooms.
One of the two master suites has its own wood-burning fireplace, but guests are going to spend most of the time outside. That's where a full-size regulation outdoor basketball court and tennis court await, nestled amongst the trees, next to a lagoon-like, grotto-style swimming pool and pond. A detached pool house puts guests at a comfortable distance, with its own full bathroom overlooking the stone patio and stacked-stone outdoor kitchen and bar below.
Finally, a screened balcony runs the length of the home, overlooking the pool and elevated spa. The $1,749,000 Squire Hill Road listing is held by Karen Arbutine with RE/MAX Central Realty.
