Property Description

One of Winter Park’s most notable landmark properties defines architectural excellence in an inspiring renovation of a Tuscany vineyard estate, with arguably one of the strongest lakefront vistas in all of Winter Park. La Villa Toscana rests on an elevated acre and premier property, with a sunset orientation overlooking extraordinary grounds of resort-style living on Lake Maitland, the largest lake on the Winter Park Chain of Lakes. Built in 1926, on the National Register of Historic Places and thought to be an authentic Tuscany-style, Mizner-Mediterranean, the estate underwent a multiyear extensive renovation and addition by Pellegrini Homes with renowned architect Dailey Janssen, completed in 2009. Known as a preeminent area, The Vias in Winter Park is the perfect location for this elegant Italian-Mediterranean and high-quality custom residence. A central foyer greets you and flows naturally into grand rooms for living and entertaining. The special finishes of this home offer amenities well-planned for entertaining family intimately or on a grander scale for special events. There is a main residence, plus a two-story casita, a pool cabana and grandfathered two-story boathouse that all feature exquisite and authentic finishes, Bourgogne stone flooring, French oak flooring, 100-year-old pecky cypress beams and ceilings, custom-designed Hope’s® steel windows and doors. The kitchen features custom Turkish wood cabinetry, a La Cornue range, commercial-grade appliances, a working island and more. Opening naturally to the family room with custom-designed built-ins and a gas fireplace. This smart plan includes two offices featuring exquisite millwork and French baked white oak floors. The separate, private casita with kitchen is perfect for guests with views of the grounds and lake, as well. From the hand-selected, antique rolled-barrel tiles on roof and reclaimed exotic wood-detailed interiors to the solid marble and copper tubs, there are too many wonderful features to name. The stunning landscaped grounds are designed by renowned Mario Nievera, terracing down with a cascading rivulet to the pool, lake and boathouse, creating the perfect backdrop for outdoor living and entertaining. Imported, custom-designed Italian hand-painted glass tile defines the tranquil pool with waterfall, next to the cabana with a full kitchen, wood-burning pizza oven and changing rooms with showers. The expansive basement hosts the media room, laundry room, wine grotto and two mechanical rooms. Enjoy the true Florida lifestyle with a heated spa, outdoor fire pit and the absolute best boathouse on the chain, with two levels, deck, balcony and two baths. Exceptional features include incredible millwork, electric disappearing shades in most rooms, home theater, air-conditioned garage with catering kitchen, hand-carved Italian sinks and tub, elevator, gazebo, whole-house generator, top-of-the-line water filtration system, Lutron technology, natural gas lanterns, multiple fountains and more. Note reproduction costs today for the structures alone (excluding land valued at over $5M) would be in excess of the asking price (owner invested ~ $1 million on the boathouse renovation alone)… NOTE: Arguably once in a lifetime opportunity for additional ~1.5 acre lakefront residence next door may be purchased & added to this property creating a ~3 acre estate…!!
