A lead executive with the Celebration Golf Club and other golf courses in Florida paid $3.75 million last week for a lakefront home in Keene's Pointe.
Located on Grosvenor Shore Drive, the 8,677-square-foot custom home built by Stonebridge Homes sits on just under 4.5 acres and includes two boat docks, one covered.
The buyer was William Joshua Davis, who is also a managing member of the business entity behind the Jack Nicklaus-signature Golden Bear Club at Keene's Pointe golf course.
Davis could not be reached for comment. Privacy was important in his selection of a house in the guard-gated community on Lake Tibet-Butler, said Angela Durruthy, a Realtor with Keene's Pointe Realty who represented both sides in the transaction.
"They want to live their private lives on the lake. He enjoys fishing," Durruthy said of Davis. "It's a wonderful setting, very peaceful and quiet. It fits their style of living."
Built in 2011, the house has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-baths. The kitchen, which is open to the family room, has a view of the lake and features a walk-in pantry. An adjoining "man cave" has a pool table, bar, multiple televisions and theater. A stained cypress lanai overlooks a pool and spa with waterfall, grotto and slide.
The seller was Farm Investments Group, a Windermere-based company headed by Carla Fontana and Valter Ferreira, state and county records show.
Celebration Golf Club, which opened in 1996, was designed by famed golf course architects Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr. The course is known for lush surroundings that take advantage of Florida pine forests and wetlands.
The deed was signed March 27 and recorded two days later in Orange County.
