True mid-century gem in the heart of Winter Park, this 3651 SF home on a stunning .52 acre lot overlooks a lush green preserve & pond. This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is a tour-de-force of Florida mid-century design. Originally built in 1960 for the Kerr family of real estate developers, the block and beam construction is the quintessential combination of Sarasota School modern architecture and Japanese design principles. Built in the spirit of a traditional Japanese home, the entire home surrounds an expansive courtyard garden with mature plants and koi pond, accessible through floor-to-ceiling glass sliders. Original details include the horizontal clerestory windows, hand-crafted circular copper fireplace, and brilliant play with space and levels. The open floor plan flows from a serpentine sunken living room, to formal dining room, to kitchen, to oversized family room. Two master suites each feature expansive closets & original design details. Two additional bedrooms at the front of the home are separated from the master suites. In the early 1970s, a rare residential project by noted Winter Park architects Helman, Hurley, Charvat, & Peacock, added a second master suite, complete with spacious closets and a lush atrium shower, and an expansive family room. The lot, spanning more than half an acre, is a tranquil paradise full of mature beds and specimens overlooking a pond & adjacent Windsong with room to build an addition & add a pool. Donât miss this rare piece if history.
