The founder of two national amateur golf tours paid $2.4 million on March 10 for a home on the 12th green of the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club, sold at roughly half its cost by the lead executive of a national golf equipment company.
Located in the 9000 block of Sloane Street, the 7,400-square-foot home includes five bedrooms, seven full baths, travertine and hardwood floors throughout, along with features like a wine cellar, elevator and spiral staircase, game room, wet bar, balcony with long-range views of the golf course, and a summer kitchen and outdoor fireplace by the swimming pool and spa.
Insight on how much this 11,630-square-foot home went for, how it compares to past Seminole County sales, and which businessman bought it.

"A main reason we bought in Lake Nona is logistics. I fly a lot for (golf tournaments), so being next to MCO is huge," Conte told GrowthSpotter. "We also just did a deal with Tavistock (developer of Lake Nona), so being close to them is a plus for growing the Junior Golf Tour. They also bought a minority share in our company."
The sellers were Walter R. and Tina Uihlein, parents of professional golfer Peter Uihlein. The couple previously paid $4.3 million in 2008 for the home, then a newly-built custom design by Maroon Fine Homes.
