This mid-century modern Winter Park mega-home conceals a massive hidden courtyard


Whether you are a diabolical super-villain who wants to take over the world with a giant laser beam, or just a super-fan of Mid-century Modern, this spacious castle will feel like home.

The incredible and unique mega-dwelling is located on the eastern edge of Winter Park's West Side neighborhood, just footsteps from the Winter Park Police station, post office and Park Ave.

Besides its decadent five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the 8,910-square-foot square features an “an open design to forge a connection with nature” and “a commercial grade chef's kitchen with three stately islands and solid granite waterfall counters.” It has an RV garage and heated, salt water pool, too – but its most prominent feature is without a doubt the “Grande Courtyard.”

It's currently on the market for $3.5 million represented Christine Gelman of Charles Rutenberg Realty Orlando. First sold as a 0.86-acre plot of land for $1.1 million in 2007, the home was built in 2013 and has been on and off the market between $2.988 and $3.75 million.

The house is zoned for Lakemont Elementary, Maitland Middle, and Winter Park High School. The monthly estimated cost of the mortgage, taxes and insurance is $13,688.
