2017 Anderson Place Available 02/16/21 Custom Energy Efficient 3/2.5 House w/ Office and includes Detached 1/1 Guest House in Downtown Orlando - Don't miss this opportunity to live in this modern and spacious “Green Home” located in the Downtown Orlando area. Built in 2007, this ICF-built property was the first LEED "Silver" home in the State of Florida, and featured in Orlando Magazine and other publications as well as hosting guests from the international builders' show and the Orlando solar tour.
The Asian-inspired design was built with efficiency and practicality in mind. Situated on an over-sized corner lot with large, mature oaks, the home is a two minute walk from Lake Como, and a five minute walk from Orlando's urban wetlands park. The Lake Como community is a stable traditional neighborhood of friendly people, and only five minutes drive to the offices and restaurants of downtown Orlando. The main house has 3 large bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with a separate office attached to the master suite. With over 2700 sq. ft. of living space in the split floor plan, the home can as easily accommodate a family with active children as an entertainment-minded professional. A 400 sq. ft. guest house, with full bath and wet bar, overlooks the Japanese-style landscaped backyard.
Upon entering the property, look up to find fourteen-foot wood-paneled ceilings in the great room, and a dining room capped by an intimate custom-designed lighting emplacement. Modern, stained concrete floors run throughout the common areas, with bamboo flooring in the bedrooms. A gas fireplace anchors the great room, and custom lighting continues the Asian inspiration from great room to kitchen. Modern cabinetry, imported from Germany, surrounds the kitchen in cherry wood, with unique design features, from clever corner cabinetry to "pop-up" electrical fixtures, adding storage and convenience. A floating glass and steel hood cover the five-burner gas cooktop, which sits on a double oven, also in stainless steel. Hidden behind the glass roll-up doors of the appliance "garage" is a modern microwave, with glass display shelves floating above.
Beyond the kitchen is a large bonus room, usable for play and projects, a comfortable den, or an entertainment space large enough for your pool table. Multiple cable, telephone, and power outlets throughout the home allow for any imaginable configuration of entertainment equipment. Double doors lead out to the patio, where a built-in overhead hood will draw grill smoke away from your guests as they relax, bug-free, behind the retractable screens of the patio. Back inside, a corridor leads to the master bedroom behind sound-deadening walls. Behind two sets of doors, wood-paneled ceilings and an artistic double fan top off the spacious master. Two closets (the walk-in featuring a stylish European built-in system) provide ample storage and dressing area. The master bath features his and hers sinks, a large glass-walled shower, and an overflow tub with a dramatic waterfall surprise. Here, too, a modern and understated elegance radiates, with custom cabinetry and lighting contributing clean lines and visual interest in the Asian style.
From living area to garage, pass through a convenient mud room featuring fold-away shoe bins. The separate laundry room features stacked high capacity washer and dryer, three counter-top work spaces, utility sink, and ample cabinetry and shelving. Less obvious, the room sits behind a steel door and casement, with concrete walls six inches thick, and an equally strong ceiling overhead. The laundry doubles as the safe room, ready and waiting for your supplies to fully equip yourself for the worst storm mother nature has to offer. (Not that you'll need it. The whole home has the same six-inch thick insulated concrete walls and impact-resistant widows rated at 120 miles per hour. Couple that with the built-in, gas-fired automatic generator, your biggest problem will be feeding the guests who arrive for the hurricane party.)
The two and a half car garage has built in work bench, and a third bay door that opens to reveal a serene Japanese garden, with rock "river", brilliant green turf, and feature lighting illuminating a towering live oak and surrounding walkways.
On the back, there is a custom 400 Sq. Ft. studio guest house featuring bamboo flooring complete with separate bath and kitchen. (Please note the guest house cannot be sublet as per the terms of the lease agreement).
In front of the garage the stamped-concrete driveway boasts ample parking, while inside the fenced yard a secure parking space, suitable for boat and trailer, awaits your toys. The Eco-minded will appreciate the energy and water saving features of the home, including solar water heating and solar power generation, a high-efficiency air conditioner, and numerous passive design features that will amaze and delight. The economically-minded will appreciate dramatically lower utility costs, as your own photovoltaic solar power plant supplements electricity consumption when you need it, and pumps power back into the grid (and money into your pocket) when you don't.
Convenient to the 408 (East-West Expressway) and I-4, less than 5 minutes to the shopping and dining establishments of the Lake Eola and Thornton Park districts, as well as Baldwin Park, the central location is disguised in the hidden gem of the Lake Como neighborhood. Don't miss the opportunity to explore this unique home, from the modern interior to the multiple courtyards of the grounds. With features truly too numerous to list, and a unique provenance, you will find nothing like it on the rental market in Orlando.
Exterior lawn service included in the rental rate. A small pet may be considered.
