While some people stare into a blank canvas to create a project, Lori Waters found her work of art ready to be finished. “Inspirational piece of property” describes the owner of 4 ½ acres of unbelievable property located on the shores of Lake Eloise in Winter Haven, FL. Lori adds, “the house is an extension of a one of a kind property.” Lori and her husband Glen built this dream house in 2006 and won 5 Aurora Awards in that same year. The property was the stage for the 2009 motion picture H2O Extreme featuring Chris Carmack and John Schneider. This masterpiece also caught MTV’s attention which recently recorded one of its infamous Teen Cribs episodes.
This 16,000 square foot masterpiece features 9 bedrooms, 8 ½ bathrooms, and a private exercise room with a fully equipped massage area. The house was designed in order to incorporate the spectacular view which can be admired throughout the house. Lori also dedicated some attention to the fine detailing on flooring using porcelain tiles, on the ceilings with custom made moldings, and to display their passion: art. “Wall to wall, floor to ceiling exquisite architectural details are expressed by craftsmanship and materials” says Lori. She describes the results, “even though it is a big piece of property, the house feels warm and welcoming.”Overlooking Lake Eloise, the master suite features private outdoor courtyard, huge custom design closets, and an over the top bathroom with jetted tub, mirrored television, and body sprays on the shower.
The Mediterranean house design is counterbalanced by some intriguing features such as hidden doors and passageways. The property provides all levels of entertainment. It has a large game room, an outstanding theater room with layered ceilings, fiber-optic twinkling stars, and luxury seating. The property also has a catering kitchen complemented by a detached guest house and nanny’s quarters. Outdoors, the endless pool is the focal point which offers elevated swim-in-place spa and multiple waterfalls. The area is enhanced by a fully equipped summer kitchen and outdoor living room with fireplace.
Originally priced for $8.9 million, this masterpiece is being offered at $ 5.875 million. This property is listed by Renee Butler from Brokers Realty of Central Florida, Inc.
