Adventist Health executive buys $3.4M home on Lake Virginia in Winter Park

Rex-Tibbs Construction built this home on Lake Virginia in Winter Park, which recently sold to Randy and Cynthia Haffner.

Randy Haffner, the new president/CEO of Multi-State Division for Adventist Health System and his wife, Cynthia Ann Haffner, purchased a newly built home at 1381 College Point in Winter Park for $3.4 million on Aug. 21, according to Orange County records.

The 5,500 square-foot custom home, facing Lake Virginia, was sold to the couple by Rex-Tibbs Construction Co. Frederick Tibbs and his business partner, Walter Rex, bought the site in March 2014 for $1.2 million, according to records, with the intention of building a speculative home to sell.


"It was a pig in a poke," Tibbs said of the land. The lot was overgrown to the point where it was difficult to see the water and had an old decrepit home on it, he said. In the end, the parcel cleaned up better than they expected.

Construction of the house took about 10 months. The approval for building the new home was time-consuming as well, because of the intensive development review process in Winter Park that usually involves the approval of neighbors, as well as the city and entities that govern lake development, he said.


Haffner did not immediately respond to a request to talk about his new home.

Adventist Health System appointed Randy Haffner to the position of executive vice president and president/CEO of the multi-state division on March 30.

His role is to provide strategic direction to the 21 Adventist Health System hospital campuses in  Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Lars Houmann remains Executive Vice President and President/CEO for Florida Hospital and the Florida Division of Adventist Health System, which is comprised of 24 hospital campuses in Florida. or 407-420 6261
