Property Description

This one-of-a-kind historic home offers tranquil privacy on the east side of Eagle Lake in Winter Haven. The home is inspired by the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style of architecture, with emphasis on nature and detailed craftsmanship. The Prairie-style home is characterized by long, vertical bands of windows. They feature a multi-paned geometric design which is also found throughout the interior. The style of the home is designed to be in harmony with the lakeside site and to put the spectacular sunsets on full display. The home lot is approximately 5 acres of landscaped yard with a generous 600+ feet of lakefront. The rooms in the home are exceptionally large with unique characteristics and craftsmanship. The interior doors are made of solid wood with a custom geometric pattern that is unique to this home. Many of the rooms have solid-wood tongue and groove paneling made of red wood, cypress, cherry, white pine, and cedar. All the bedrooms have stunning views of the property and/or the lake. The 134 steel casement windows can be opened by solid copper hardware and have ivory granite windowsills. The roof on the home is architectural terracotta clay tile made by the Ludowici Tile Co. It is the highest quality terracotta roof tile available with a 50+ year life. There are 4 brick fireplaces throughout the first floor. Three are found indoors while a fourth is located on an outdoor brick patio. The second floor features 4 large bedrooms with full bathrooms. The 3rd floor air-conditioned attic has been converted into living space with a full bath. In addition, there are 3 half bathrooms on the first floor. The first-floor rooms are a combination of tile and narrow-gauge hardwood floors with beautiful geometric patterns. The original custom terracotta tile is an artisan creation. The house has a full basement with storm cellar doors that give access to the outside but are securely locked from the inside. The large kitchen and pantry feature an abundant 50 feet of stainless steel countertops and 4 sinks. The kitchen cabinetry is solid cherry wood. The kitchen also features a commercial-size Sub-Zero refrigerator. Specimen plant species on the property include: giant camphor tree, 100 yr. live oak, unique varieties of avocado, mango trees, blueberry, finger lime, lemon and lime trees, plus many exotic flowering plants.
