Designed for a repeat customer in Winter Park, this Stately Manor features innovative ideas and functional spaces.
A grand entry turret welcomes visitors though the front courtyard to the foyer with a dramatic staircase. A hint of the secluded upper library is visible as the stairs wind around the foyer. A private study is just off the foyer and secluded from the busier areas of the home.
In the other direction, a grand room has enough space for a large family gathering. For a family that loves to cook and entertain, the kitchen is the heart of the design. The formal dining space adjacent to the kitchen can be used every day or for special occasions, and a quaint cafe off the corner of the kitchen is just right for a few to gather.
Off either of the dining spaces, the Indoor-Outdoor room can be part of the living space or opened up to be part of the back porch. The versatile design creates an outdoor living space that can be used any time of the year.
5772 sqft AC space

Indoor-Outdoor Sports Bar
The owners wanted a "sports bar" entertaining area. The design solution created a killer space that can be used year round in all types of weather.
The sports bar can be opened to the inside of the home while closed off from the outside or it can be opened to the outside and closed off from the house. Using a combination of hiding glass doors and retractable screens, the space can be enjoyed any time of year.

It's important how a home presents itself on the property. Because of secluded access, this home is not fully visible from the street. This provides the opportunity to create a dramatic presentation as you approach down the long driveway.
Further drama is achieved as you enter the front courtyard and approach the entry or the veranda.
The fly-around capabilities of our 3D software can demonstrate the full effect of a dramatic approach to a home and solidify a great initial impression.
