Designed by renowned architect Gene Leedy, one of the founders of the Sarasota School of Architecture, this modern lakefront estate is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of architectural history. Located on nearly 2 acres in a tucked-away alcove of Eagle Lake, this 6,149-square-foot luxury home boasts 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms across two floors. You’ll be greeted in the living room by soaring 21 ft ceilings, a grand fireplace and expansive sliding “glass walls” that open through the entire first floor to a private interior courtyard featuring an in-ground salt pool and a sprawling concrete deck overlooking the lake. The seamless integration of outdoor and indoor space turns the entire first floor into an entertainer’s paradise, equipped with a massive kitchen with a breakfast bar, dinette, large walk-in scullery, and plenty of counter space. 
Upgrades include all gourmet appliances, custom-built cabinetry and a kitchen nook looking out towards the pool. Venture to the second floor via the main staircase, featuring a 11 ft, single-pane glass window offering a breathtaking view of the lake or the wrought-iron spiral staircase—one of Gene’s classic architectural elements. There, you’ll find an expansive family room that opens to five bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms that include variety of walk-in showers, a claw foot tubs, and upgraded modern light and plumbing fixtures. All of the bedrooms offer views of the lake between the extensive oak trees that shade the rooms from the summer sun. The master suite is spacious and grand with custom walk-in closets and a spa-like master bathroom that's been updated to feature double vanities, crystal linear gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub and luxurious waterfall shower.
Need more room? The spacious guest suite contains a fully upgraded kitchen and living area with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that fill the space with natural light and open to a private courtyard. These courtyards are another example of how Gene used honest, natural materials like wrought-iron gates and concrete-block walls to create private, livable outdoor spaces around the property. Recent improvements include a brand-new, asphalt shingle roof and newly refinished driveway with plenty of space for guest parking in addition to three split garage spaces. 
This expansive 1.90-acre estate is embedded in the natural elements of Florida, consisting of live oaks, palms, cypress trees and mature landscaping that provide constant shade and picturesque views of Eagle Lake. Take the family out on the boat or enjoy the breathtaking sunrise from a private dock, tucked away in your serene waterfront escape surrounded by rich birdlife and old Florida charm. 
A long private driveway provides access to the property and seclusion from any noise or bustle. NO HOA! Perfect location minutes from Downtown Winter Haven and LegoLand, with easy quick access to Tampa and Orlando via I-4. There are too many unique features to list in this one-of-a-kind Gene Leedy design. To fully experience the property, tour the immersive 3D-walkthrough above and schedule your appointment today.
