Welcome to 1000 Genius Drive……..a piece of Winter Park history! This Mediterranean lakefront estate on 1.89 acres was originally designed and constructed in 1925 by a group of Winter Park league of businessmen to be their clubhouse, but was sold as a private residence soon after completion. Owned by Rollins College from 1956-1976 it was used as the Conservatory of Music known as Martin Hall. In 1976 it was sold and restored back to a private residence and was named in 2013 as one of “10 Homes in Winter Park That Matter”. Situated with water on 3 sides of the property, the home boasts views across Lake Virginia in the back, Lake Mizell in the front, and the canal connecting the 2 lakes along the side of the property. The main home offers 4 bedrooms, 4.2 bathrooms, formal living, formal dining, office, theater room, an eat-in kitchen, and an amazing 56x20 “Florida Room” across the back of the home with expansive views of Lake Virginia and Rollins College. There is also a 1 bed/1bath full guest apartment over the 3 car garage. Interior features include plaster walls & ceilings, spacious rooms, high volume ceilings, detailed moldings, and magnificent walnut hardwood floors. Enjoy the pool/spa and summer kitchen outside, breathtaking sunset views of Rollins College or take advantage of all the WP Chain of Lakes has to offer. Just a short walk to Park Avenue this impressive Winter Park lakefront estate is a one-of-a-kind!! (Click on MLS "web link" for additional information from Rollins College archives)
