Perched majestically on a hillside in Longwood’s exclusive Sweetwater Club, this 1.4 acre executive-style estate is a rare find in Central Florida. Custom built with a white brick façade and classic Georgian architecture, you’ll never lose that thrill of pulling up the long circular drive as you come home. The property’s park-like atmosphere benefits from lushly landscaped grounds filled with mature shade trees. Double entry doors welcome guests into the 2-story foyer with its winding staircase and curved board-and-batten accents. Flanking the foyer is a formal dining room on the left and a transformed formal living room on the right. Gleaming Brazilian hardwood floors fill the living area and beckon visitors into the heart of the home. Swathes of custom millwork and beautiful crown molding can be found throughout. The family room’s focal point is a wood-burning brick fireplace, set between glass-paneled French doors. A built-in bookcase doubles as a dry bar for entertaining, next to a smartly placed linen closet for cuddly blankets on family movie nights. Open to the family room is the kitchen and breakfast nook, which features a large island, solid wood cabinets with dovetailed soft-close drawers, quartzite counters, and double built-in ovens. In a wing of its own on the 1st floor, the owner’s suite is a serene retreat with a private fireplace, French doors to the rear patio, and ensuite bath with travertine marble floors, claw foot tub, shower with rain fixtures and frameless glass, dual sinks, and a walk-in closet. Now for the space you’ve been dreaming of: A doorway has been added connecting the owner’s suite to the formal living room, converted into a luxurious dressing area and walk-in closet complete with a stone-topped accessory island. If this doesn’t suit your needs, it can easily revert to a living room, office, or nursery. Another bedroom is located on the opposite side of the 1st floor, which would also make an ideal home office or den. Across the hall is the mudroom, a huge laundry room and pool bath with tons of storage, located just inside the garage entrance with access to the backyard. Glide up the winding staircase to the 2nd floor where more Brazilian wood floors await. A large loft separates the bedrooms, making the perfect theater, game room, or study space with built-in cabinets and shelving. Four spacious bedrooms are located upstairs, each with a walk-in closet and connected Jack-and-Jill bath. The 2nd floor also has a traditional cedar closet. Ready to head outside? Exit through one of the 4 sets of French doors to the lanai. This massive, covered patio has a summer kitchen and room to spare for outdoor living, outdoor dining and entertaining, with a wood-planked ceiling, brick-paver flooring, and accessory storage closet. The screen-enclosed pool is an enormous 40 by 20 feet, with room for laps and games most pools cannot accommodate. Fully fenced and surrounded by foliage, the ample backyard provides the Florida lifestyle you’ve desired, while still feeling secluded and private. Additional features include a side-loading 3-car garage, double-pane windows, new deep-water well, and 2 HVAC systems with floor-specific zoning. Residents of Sweetwater Club enjoy the security of a guarded and gated entrance, tennis courts, and a private boat ramp with access to Lake Brantley. Zoned for top rated schools with a great location 5 minutes from Wekiva Springs State Park and 25 minutes from Downtown Orlando.
