A PGA tour caddie is choosing a lakefront view instead of one on a golf course.
David and Samantha Clark recently bought a home on a rare large lakefront lot in St. Cloud's Narcoossee corridor. The home is on Carson Street and sits on five acres in the private Lake Hendon Reserve Community just south of Lake Nona.
"Lake Hendon is a private spring-fed lake and most of the properties that surround the lake are two to five acres, so it's a real private area," said Chris Pixley, an agent with Fusilier Reality Group. The group represented both the buyer and the seller.
There are only 14 lakefront and three non-lakefront homes in the gated neighborhood, each sitting on very large lots. "The community is really cool," Pixley said. It is close to the new USTA National Training Center and major roads.
The home sold for $1.1 million and has five bedrooms, four full baths, one half bath, and a four-car garage. There is also a game room and a modern kitchen.
Construction on the home began in 2016 and it is 5,772 square feet with two stories. "It is an open floor plan with a double master, a master down and a master up," Pixley said, adding each has an attached master bathroom with a large shower and double vanities.
Ceilings of more than 20 feet highlight a unique feature of the home. "When you enter the house, there is a really cool catwalk across the great room area," he said.
Seller Kristen Burgess began building the custom home and was in the process of finishing it when her company transferred her overseas, Pixley said. There is a separate pool/ gym house, but no pool. "Once she got transferred, she ended up not putting the pool in."
The Clarks already lived in the Orlando area and bought the house for their family, which includes three children. Clark is currently the caddie for Russell Knox and was with him in the recent Player's Championship. Clark was on the bag for 18 months for former world number one Adam Scott, including during the 2018 Master's.
The Clarks were looking for a bigger home and found just what they were looking for, Pixley said. "It's a beautiful property in a cool community."
