Description

An exceptional lakefront sanctuary in Mount Dora with ideal Lake Gertrude frontage, breathtaking sunsets, and historic relevance, all encapsulated in superior half-block construction. This is by far the most enviable location in Mount Dora. Sited on a sloping 1.3-acre parcel facing West with captivating lakefront sunsets, this spectacular home features modern improvements and luxury amenities, while retaining its distinguished allure. It was inspired by the Historic Beauregard-Keyes House in New Orleans and designed by famous architect James Gamble Rogers then constructed by local contractor J G Ray. A stately main home and a spacious cottage include 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths in all. An impressive circular drive invites guests to ascend the front steps to a classic Florida front porch with elevated views of pristine Lake Gertrude. The main home has a primary bedroom with an ensuite bath and gas fireplace; an exercise room complete with closets and views of the outdoor gardens; a formal living room with fireplace; a formal dining room; a library; a family room with gas fireplace; and 1500 sq.ft. of coral stone patio with an outdoor kitchen and electric sunshades surrounding the pool. A gourmet, eat-in kitchen is designed for entertaining and culinary aficionados with an 8x8 cooking island, high-end appliances, double ovens, two dishwashers, prep sinks, and windows that open the kitchen onto the patios. There is a bath that services the kitchen, family, and library. You and your guests can sample wines from around the world from the 40 Ft x 8 Ft temperature-controlled, hidden wine cellar with storage for over 1,000 bottles. Work from home in the private office with bath overlooking the pool and garden areas. An elegant staircase leads to three bedrooms (one with a Juliette balcony) and a full bath upstairs. The detached cottage, complete with a kitchen, bath, and front porch will house guests in the privacy of the back lot. Another wonderful property feature is the Generac standby generator which is designed to power the entire compound. There is a workshop and childs playhouse as well. Brick pathways allow you to stroll through the gardens, around the home, and to the cottage. Lakeside, from your private sandy beach, is where the real fun and relaxation happens. Relax under the shade of the palms, enjoy the fire pit on a cool winter evening, fish from your dock, set sail on a windy day, enjoy a sunset cruise, fish, kayak, swim, ski, and so much more. There is 125 feet of private sandy shoreline with a dock, covered boat lift, open deck with seating, and a floating platform. Lake Gertrude is a 248-acre, crystal clear and clean, spring-fed lake. As properties on desirable Lake Gertrude in Mount Dora continue to flourish, and new multi-million-dollar homes are replacing existing lakefront and nearby homes, none can replicate 1414 Sylvan Drive.
