Nestled on a 5.28-acre peninsula, this architectural marvel built in 1998, previously hailed as the Life Magazine Dream Home for 1997, offers an oasis of tranquility in a chaotic world. Designed by John Rattenbury, a disciple of the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright, this residence seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings, creating a haven that feels like a secluded island. The allure of this residence is undeniable, with water taking center stage. Gaze out through the expansive glass picture windows, six French doors, and unique clerestory windows, and you'll be captivated by the embrace of water from every corner. Situated between a serene pond and a picturesque lake, this home boasts approximately 1000 feet of waterfront property, inviting you to experience a connection with nature that's truly unparalleled. Despite its close proximity to water, the house and improved portions of the property are well above lake level and are practically immune from flooding (even after Ian, the water level was five feet below the house). The thoughtful layout of the house guarantees stunning lake or pond views from every room. The open living area not only frames the breathtaking water panoramas but also harmonizes the interiors with the outdoors. The interior design is a celebration of natural wood, predominantly showcasing the elegance of maple. Traditional tongue-in-groove solid maple floors adorn the living area, study, and hallway, while the kitchen features cabinets faced in solid maple and maple trim accents on light shelves, exuding a sense of understated luxury. Privacy is paramount here. With only one exceptional neighbor within 200 feet and just a handful of houses visible across the lake, the property is cocooned in a world of its own. An ideal setting to host gatherings with your extended family, engage in boating escapades, or explore the terrain on ATV rides. Over the span of our 26 years, the property has played host to a mesmerizing array of wildlife, from deer and ducks to majestic bald eagles. Nature enthusiasts will be enchanted by sightings of alligators, bears, and wild boar, reminding us of the true wonder of our natural world. Despite its seemingly remote location, convenience is at your doorstep. A mere four blocks away from Publix and Ace Hardware at Deltona Commons and less than a mile from the Walmart Supercenter and SR415 at Howland Boulevard, you're seamlessly connected to modern amenities.
