Property Description

Vacation where you live. Venture down sleepy, old-Florida Via Bonita to discover a row of lakefront paradise homes. Perfectly situated on the northern shore of Lake Markham, this custom home enjoys the peaceful sunrises and sunsets across the longest water views of the lake. Enjoy the essence of Florida living from your own private beach or cruising the lake on your brand new Lowe top end cruise and fish pontoon boat or kayaks, which are included in the sale of this lakefront estate. From dusk until dawn, the serenity of Lake Markham is your playground. This one-of-a-kind custom built home offers unique spaces and window placement to bring in the spectacular water views from several rooms. Soaring 18 foot ceilings make this home feel much larger than its 3,726 square feet of living space thanks to its enormous, two story 1,000 square foot covered lanai. A painstakingly manicured landscape envelopes the property and the oversized pool and spa share a tropical paradise of ornamental vegetation. Upon entering this statement home, the two story, double-sided coquina fireplace in the living room raises all eyes to the towering ceilings and large windows bringing in indirect natural light. Wide sliding glass doors beckon viewers to usher out to the pool and lake. The open kitchen offers plenty of cabinets, a center cooking island complete with a stainless steel exhaust vent, and more windows to share the incredible views of Lake Markham. Follow the stairs up towards the primary master suite where one enjoys floor to ceiling windows at the seating area, a wood burning fireplace, and large sliding glass doors to a private balcony overlooking the pool and offering unparalleled lake views. The ensuite bath is complete with a garden tub, a glass door shower, dual sinks and a walk-in closet. Gather in the oversized family room for movie night or head out into the lanai for more entertainment. The remaining two bedrooms are located on the first floor on opposite sides of the home, each enjoying stellar views of the lake. One bedroom enjoys a walk-in closet and ensuite bath while the other shares a bath with the common living space. An oversized laundry room and a wet bar complete the first floor. On the other side of the home the second set of stairs leads to the 4th bedroom, currently used as a visitor's guest room and office. This versatile space offers many uses and it too enjoys incredible views of the lake. The new owner will enjoy the privacy of no HOA and a brand new septic system, installed August 2023. Ideally situated within moments of boutique shopping and dining in both Historic Downtown Sanford and iconic Lake Mary, this lakefront masterpiece is equally convenient to major hospitals, the attractions and the beaches via the new 429/417 beltways, and I4.
