Former residence of Dr. James Young III,
996 Fairview Avenue, Mount Dora, FL
Mirroring the magnificence of a French Estate home, this ivy covered, stone faced home is a masterpiece of architecture, crafted by Dan Farmer. An arched doorway welcomes you into a spacious floorplan designed for quality family time or entertaining groups of friends. Perched high atop a bluff, this spectacular 4 bedroom/4 ½ bath home offers panoramic views of Lake Dora from each of its three finely designed levels. Life is made even easier with the convenience of your own elevator accessible to the living quarters of each floor.
Walnut cabinetry by acclaimed artist Jeffry Mann accents an oversized kitchen equipped with high end stainless steel and walnut veneered appliances surrounding a matching island. Entertainment and day to day living are within easy access to the inviting covered terrace and living rooms overlooking picturesque lake views.
There is no shortage of amenities including a private cedar wine cellar with its own unique storage area, an opulent home theater for watching movies and sporting events, the glow of a natural gas fireplace and exterior lanterns, old stone patterned porcelain tiles, an ornate copper chimney cap and a roomy two car garage. Of special note – this home’s design offers the opportunity to expand, as the finished lower floor is ready to be converted into two extra bedrooms or an in-law suite.
This exquisite residence is ideally situated walking distance to Downtown Mount Dora, one of Central Florida’s most charming and desirable small towns. Mount Dora is famous for its quaint atmosphere, quintessential town square, unique shops, fine restaurants, yacht club on the Harris Chain of Lakes, parks and its hosting of numerous annual festivals. Don’t miss this opportunity to make this your permanent home. Mark your calendar and plan on attending the live auction of this elegant home.
