Mansion in Disney Resort sells for reduced rate of $12 million

The 8,000-square-foot “Italianate masterpiece” in the prestigious Disney-owned Golden Oak community had been on the market for more than a year with no takers when Realtor Keith Renner decided to significantly reduce the asking price.

The $4 million drop-off for a six-bedroom, nine-bath mansion with a Mickey suite and a 900-bottle wine gallery made an instantaneous difference, Renner, with Nectar Real Estate, told GrowthSpotter.

“There was interest immediately,” he said. “We reduced the price (from $16 million) on Thursday and we were under contract on Saturday.”

Marking the highest home transaction in the Orlando market this year, an anonymous buyer closed on the villa for $12 million using an entity titled Winter is a Verb, according to Orange County deed records. The entity’s address matches that of Trust Point, Inc, a wealth management company based out of Minneapolis.

Renner declined to provide information about the buyer or the seller, citing confidentiality.

The two-story mansion, built in 2017, sits within Four Seasons Private Residences, an enclave within Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort.

The gated community is home to some of the most expensive residential real estate in Orlando, where homeowners have access to the amenities and services provided by the nearby Four Seasons Resort.

Like many homes in the luxurious neighborhood, the estate bought by the Minnesota-based entity comes with two kitchens — one for the owner and one for the hotel staff to create catered meals or deliver laundry and fresh flowers.

“It’s a beautiful, beautiful home,” Renner said. “A tremendous home in a tremendous community. It’s a very friendly layout and a very useful layout. With its materials and the architecture, it’s what people are looking for today when they’re buying.”

Nectar’s website describes the home as an “Italianate masterpiece” offering “exceptional luxury, thoughtful design, impeccable craftsmanship and access to unparalleled services.”

The two-story living space is accented by travertine floors and limestone-faced columns. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook a private oasis at the rear of the property that includes a covered living space with retractable screens, a fireplace, an outdoor shower, and a pool bath.

An executive office resplendent with custom cabinetry, detailed wainscoting, and white oak flooring provides access to a front fountain courtyard and entrance. The adjacent dining room features a custom barrel ceiling with crushed glass plastered finish next to a wine gallery with a 900-bottle capacity and its own chiller system.

Off the dining room is a grand gathering room, featuring a detailed wood ceiling and fireplace opening up to the outdoor living space, the realtor’s website says.

The kitchen comes with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances surrounding Calcatta Santo marble countertops and custom cabinetry. The home includes three garages, two staircases, and an elevator.

The second floor offers another living room, lounge, a multi-purpose room, a computer loft, and a second laundry room. The top floor also includes four themed bedrooms: the Dream Suite, Castle Suite, Four Seasons Suite, and Mickey’s Suite.

The Mickey suite comes with a ceiling light detail in the shape of the Disney character’s trademark ears, along with a Mickey vanity and Mickey tile inserts on the floor in the bathroom.

“What’s really nice is that every bedroom is a suite and every room is themed a little bit different,” Renner said. “It’s not like you have six bathrooms and they all use the same tile; each room is different.”

The home, built by Central Florida-based Derrick Builders, sold to its original owner in 2018 for $6.3 million.
