This Palatial & Private Estate is an Architectural Masterpiece by Master Builder, Victoria Martoccia, & 2010’s Parade of Homes High End Custom Home Winner. The nearly 12,000 sq.ft “Windermere Chateau” manse is awe inspiring yet welcoming. Old World workmanship, every detail of was considered & meticulously crafted to last for centuries. The exterior is hand hewn limestone, smooth and seemingly spun of silk, & true brick. Nothing to be painted…ever, save the exquisite tongue and groove planked exterior ceilings. Belgian Provincial style is as classic & multicultural as the ages themselves, spanning from Asian/Indian origins in the 1400’s to European incarnations in the 1600’s. Steeped in history, this is a home with everlasting style. A fairytale driveway awaits the loftiest fleet of guests, who upon arrival, will cross the threshold into a world of unbridled elegance & grace. Double bridal staircase draws eyes upwards to the towering domed rotunda, elevating brow & spirit. The Main Room captivates and captures your imagination with hand carved limestone fireplace mantle directly inspired by the one in Cinderella’s Castle, which lies just hither & beyond. The symmetry of the dual rotundas is a feat of architecture which harkens explorations of European Cathedrals in travels past, but nothing compares to the spectacular land that surrounds this home. 30’ high views of the sprawling and terraced travertine underfoot gives way to the great lawn which may accommodate golf greens, tennis courts, equestrian jumping gates, lavish formal gardens, or simply the spectacular, unencumbered lake view it presently enjoys. This home, is also about the land & lifestyle it provides. Outdoor pavilions (one w/ grill, & full bar, the other is an outdoor pavilion, anchored by a massive fireplace, keeping the feeling warm & toasty), an expansive travertine coped deck, pool and spillover spa, multiple gathering & sunning areas, room for event tents, flanked by herb & rose gardens, lined by sunny citrus/fruit trees lead to the lengthy dock & covered boat house with lift, but that is where ground gives way to unfettered fantasy. Once out on your dock, you will marvel at a perfectly preserved & untouched view. Save a few fortunate homes which dot the shores, this spectacular spring fed lake is completely bordered by nature as it (likely) was before explorers first touched the Floridas. Land surrounding Lake Mabel is largely unbuildable, and no public access. Property to south, belongs to Disney's Reedy Creek, land never to be developed. 4 day generator, well, fertile land & wildlife - add solar for self-sustenance. While there’s abundant space for your private helipad, air rights are restricted, and w/o an HOA encumbering your enjoyment of your property, nobody can impose on your privacy or security overhead. Even you will require a variance & FAA permissions FAA to land your own. Much more to reveal about this home, from the conservatory, to it’s 2 story study/library, 2 private apartments & quarters, it’s 10 bedrooms and wine cellar, with vaulted ceilings worthy of praise from Notre Dame’s stone masons, home theatre & Disney firework views, but words will never convey….You’ll have to come see this palatial home to appreciate it’s providence. *Current owners are a licensed Florida Real Estate Broker & it’s Reigning Queen was Miss Florida twice… once each for the Miss America & Miss USA pageants.
