A leading contender on the LPGA golf circuit paid $5.25 million on Monday for a lakefront home in Windermere, her third home purchase in the west Orange County community.
The $5 million-plus sale value was a mind-blower even for the tony Isleworth neighborhood, said Marie Helen Ledbetter, a Realtor with Regal R.E. Professionalsand listing agent for the property.
"It's probably the highest, value-wise, for our company," she told GrowthSpotter. "I've sold million (dollar) homes and a few $2 million, but never $5 million."
The three-story, 10,362-square-foot mansion sits on a 0.6-acre lot along Lake Butler, with a lake-front view from the pool, spa and patio. The house, on Laurel Valley Drive, has six bedrooms, seven full baths and three half bathrooms.
The buyer was professional golfer Paula Creamer, who also owns two other homes in Isleworth, one of which was a joint purchase with her parents, Paul and Karen Creamer, according to Orange County property records.
One of her homes, on Alexander Garden Court, is on the market with an asking price of $1.995 million, according to a real estate listing.
Creamer secured a mortgage on the Laurel Valley Drive property of $3.675 million from Wells Fargo Bank N.A.
The sellers of the property were medical doctor Ronald G. Davis and his wife, Nancy L. Davis, of Winter Park.
Isleworth has been a long-time home to elite golfers, including Tiger Woods, Mark O'Meara, Todd Woodbridge and the late Payne Stewart. Creamer's new home has golf course frontage on Isleworth's 15th hole.
Creamer, 31, was born in Mountain View, California. When she was 13, the family moved to Bradenton where Creamer attended the IMG Golf Academy. She turned pro at age 18, and her family moved to Isleworth in February 2007.
