UPDATED: November 21, 2016 2:26 PM — A veteran healthcare industry attorney and his wife paid $1.45 million on Wednesday for an 81-year-old home in Winter Park.
The buyers were Kenneth D. McArthur, Jr., and Mary W. McArthur.
Kenneth is an attorney with Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, with more than 20 years of legal, consulting and lobbying experience focused on the health care industry.
He joined the firm in May of this year, and is working in its Washington, D.C. office. A company spokesman on Monday could not confirm if or when McArthur may relocate to the firm's Orlando office.
Located on Via Capri, the 0.45-acre property lies a block east of Lake Maitland in the Cloister Grove subdivision.
The two-story, 4,134-square-foot home with five beds and four full baths was designed by famed architect James Gamble Rogers in 1935, and was expanded in 2003 from its original 2,600 square feet.
The home's backyard features covered and open terraces, a lanai, outdoor kitchen, pool and cabana.
Gamble Rogers was best known for his Central Florida homes built in the 1930s & 1940s, and buildings on the Rollins College campus. A 52-year-old Gamble Rogers home in College Park also sold in September.
"Key (selling) points were the home's character, its street location, the lot size and privacy," said Shelley Heistand of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, listing agent on the property with David Francetic.
The buyer was represented by Jenni Sloan of Kelly Pryce & Company.
The sellers were David L. and Margaret S. McIntosh, who previously paid $455,000 in September 1994 for the property.
The McIntoshs chose to downsize from the single family home to an upscale townhome in Winter Park, Francetic said.
The Via Capri home was originally listed at $1.75 million in October 2015, and viewed 568 times over the past year before selling.
The McArthurs live in Richmond, Va., and listed their 4,500-square-foot home there for sale in late July at $1.69 million, per RichmondBizSense.com.
