Perfectly positioned on 18 acres of lakefront property with meticulously manicured grounds, this walled and gated compound includes apprx 614 feet of pristine lake frontage and panoramic views on Lake Down of the Butler Chain of Lakes. The options available to further develop this property are endless in expanding/building more structures, various ways to subdivide, parcel into a family compound, or continue to enjoy it as one massive private gated lakefront estate as utilized currently. The magnificent sprawling primary residence pairs classic Georgian architecture with modern amenities to achieve the ultimate lakeside retreat encompassing almost 50,000 "total square feet under roof" in all buildings on the property. Employing the finest materials and finishes, the elegant entryway opens into a grand interior boasting a floating mahogany staircase, marble floors and paneled walls all framed by stunning Murano chandeliers. An art gallery leads into a spacious living room lined with mahogany walls and faces wide waterfront scenes. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight featuring a salamander for warming and broiling, two double convection ovens, a large commercial icemaker and a commercial refrigerator and freezer. Downstairs also includes one of two owner's suites along with a spacious library-lounge or possible 6th bedroom suite. Two staircases or a commercial Thyssenkrupp elevator offer access to the second level featuring four more expansive bedroom suites, including the main owner's retreat, and an 85-foot parlor highlighted by 20-foot ceilings, bookshelves and a wet bar — the perfect venue for hosting family and friends. A screened porch captures spectacular southern lakefront views and nightly fireworks displays from Walt Disney World®. Connected by a breezeway, a grand rustic lodge comprised of 5,600 square feet and equipped with a large bar, catering kitchen, entertainment hall and locker facilities offer limitless potential. Just in front of the lodge, a shimmering Junior Olympic pool and spa complete with fountain and light features await.
