16841 Deer Island Road, DEER ISLAND

Wow, wow, wow. Your dream home is here. Exciting opportunity to purchase this classy custom-built “Sam Sadler” country French contemporary with direct frontage on the most sought-after, Lake Dora, the “crown jewel” on the Harris Chain of Lakes. No road between the lake and the home. While convenient to the Deer Island golf course, this property is not in Deer Island and does not have an HOA. Enjoy a round of golf on the nearby championship Joe Lee-designed golf course or cast off from your very own private dock and boathouse to visit the scenic and historic downtown Mount Dora where you can dock your boat for free while exploring the quaint little New England style village. The setting is beautiful and features eye-catching curb appeal with stone walkways, a stacked stone exterior, creatively arranged gardens and magnificent waterfront views. This sophisticated property impresses with its three-bedrooms and two-baths on the first floor and a bonus fourth-bedroom with bath en-suite on the second level. The double door entry opens to warm and comfortable living including a great room with a built-in entertainment center, decorative gas fireplace and French doors that open wide to the outdoor living area and breathtaking waterfront views. The custom kitchen overlooks the waterfront and is sure to impress with its country French cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances that include a 5-burner gas range with double ovens. Highlighting this distinctive waterfront home is the backyard tropical oasis featuring a gorgeous saltwater screen enclosed Joyce Bowles custom designed heated pool with cascading stone waterfall and alluring poolside gas fire pit. The property also features beautiful and exotic plantings and is a jewel box destination painted in colors and complemented with commanding views of Lake Dora and the wide-open “oh my gosh” views of the bright heavenly blue sky. This country French contemporary home with direct Lake Dora frontage is a wonderful blend of lakefront living, carefree poolside dining and a place for grand scale gatherings and memorable entertaining. Please see detailed virtual tour.
