The grandson of Amway co-founder and Orlando Magic owner Richard Marvin DeVos Sr. paid $2.46 million last week for a new custom-built Winter Park home.
Ryan E. DeVos, 26, is the director of eSports for the Magic basketball team, and the son of Richard DeVos Jr. and Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos is the current U.S. Secretary of Education, and Richard Jr. was an unsuccessful Republican candidate for Governor of Michigan in 2006.
Located on Stonehurst Road south of Winter Park's Lake Virginia, the 0.46-acre lot features a new 5,160-square-foot custom home built by Richard Woodruff of Woodruff Construction & Development Inc., which was completed late this summer.
Built of block and covered with gleaming white stucco, the home is crowned by a tile roof and features an open courtyard with a fireplace. The layout features five bedrooms and seven baths, a downstairs game room with two walls of disappearing glass that frames a view of the 1,200-square-foot rear patio, and custom pool and spa.
Additional custom touches include 10-foot-high iron and glass entry doors, handmade kitchen cabinetry, granite and quartz counter tops, two refrigerators, two freezers and a full summer kitchen with custom bar cabinets, according to marketing materials by listing brokerage Woodruff Realty.
The seller of the land parcel was AGRC LLC, a corporation headed by Adilson F. Da Silva of Winter Park.
Ryan DeVos graduated with a degree in international business with a focus on sport management from Rollins College, according to a biography on the webpage for Windquest Group, a private investment firm founded by his parents.
The bio goes on to say that DeVos has worked with the Orlando Magic in various capacities, as well as the National Basketball Association in the Global Marketing Partnerships group. He has planned and executed numerous activations for partners of the NBA.
