Welcome to Cross Pond, a 3.64-acre property that is truly one-of-a-kind! Built in 2017 and styled in the Southern Gothic Revival architecture of the 1800’s, this Farmhouse is a magical oasis. Imagined, designed, and constructed by local builder Sam Sadler, a descendant of one of Mount Dora’s original pioneers. History plays a thoughtful role throughout this estate. As you enter the gates of this retreat, you’ll pass a storage chapel designed from an original 1800’s era chapel with interior features salvaged from a one-room schoolhouse and converted Baptist Church. It’s both solemn and amazing. On your left is the estate’s namesake, Cross Pond, a half-acre, spring fed pond stocked with fish. Continuing on, feel yourself relax as this incredible home with its wrap-around porch comes into view. Craftsmanship plays an impressive role here with a real focus on entertaining and relaxed living. The interior offers an open floor plan graced with engineered white oak floors throughout, a ground level primary suite and two guest suites located on the upper level with an open office loft. The great room is truly masterful…a 26 FT Louisiana Cypress T&G cathedral ceiling, wood beams, floor to ceiling stone fireplace and impressive custom chandelier imbue a rustic, yet elegant vibe to this room. The gourmet kitchen is beautifully appointed with knotty alder wood cabinetry, marble counters & floors, and top-line appliances as well as many custom features. Entertain family and friends or large gatherings from the privacy of the backyard retreat. This outdoor sanctuary features a luxurious pool with travertine decking, poolside cabana bar and a 740 SF covered lanai with a stacked stone fireplace. The attached, climate controlled, oversized 3 car garage has many uses with a large interior designed for entertaining with the ability to seat up to 42 diners, a storage room, and an office and storage room above. There is a detached tool barn structure for equipment storage with drive-thru feature and attic storage. Cross Pond is conveniently located 9 minutes from Historic Downtown Mount Dora with its award-winning festivals, dining and entertainment venues; 6 minutes to Publix grocery; 18 minutes to Deer Island Golf & CC; and 1 mile from Trimble Park with nature trails, camping, picnicking and boat launch access to the Harris Chain of Lakes. Kids young and old will enjoy a short 45 minute ride to Florida's theme parks and International Airport.
