An exquisite lakefront estate in Auburndale has set the record as Polk County’s most expensive listing ever sold. Originally the highest-priced listing in the County at $4,800,000, the home commanded a sale price of $4,100,000 and is located at 501 Adams Barn Road. Louise Richer of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Winter Park office represented both sides of the transaction.
Situated on a sprawling 44-acre lot with 2,300 feet of waterfrontage, this 9,200-square-foot lakefront estate captivates visitors with its grand circular driveway, water fountain, and meticulously landscaped front yard. As guests enter through the solid mahogany doors, they are greeted by a magnificent interior spanning 9,215 square feet of luxurious living space.
The foyer sets a lavish tone with a free-standing spiral staircase, adorned with hardwood steps and a marble compass-medallion floor detail. The chef’s kitchen is light and bright with top-of-the-line appliances. The dining room offers abundant natural light and features a crystal chandelier. The family room provides a custom built-in fireplace and woodwork. The owner’s suite is a true sanctuary, complete with a butler’s pantry, dressing area with vanity, and access to the oversized terrace.
The residence features a formal living area with a saltwater aquarium, a game room with a wet bar, and a sauna for relaxation and entertainment. The outdoor oasis boasts a palatial pool with a waterfall edge beckons for refreshing dips. Tennis courts and a private, covered boat dock offer recreational opportunities for homeowners and their guests. A gardener’s garage and pumphouse add further functionality to the estate.
“This record-breaking sale will go down in Polk County’s real estate history. A hidden gem with astounding beauty and panoramic views, the remarkable estate presents a picturesque luxury lifestyle in a sought-after destination.”
