Notable Home Sales

Lakefront mansion with downtown view sells for $3.4M

One of the highest-priced sales ever in College Park just closed for $3.4 million.

“It did not even make it on the market,” said listing agent John Pinel with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “We were putting it on the next morning and we showed it off-market because a realtor reached out to us to see if we had anything. The buyers came in and paid the price.”


Public records show Adam and Mary Catherine Elizabeth Losey were those buyers and Daniel R. Mathews and Tavares Richard Matthews were the sellers of the home on Lakeview Street.

Shelley Heistand with Coldwell Banker Realty represented the buyers.


The 5,811-square-foot home has five bedrooms, including a first-floor primary bedroom and a guest suite with a separate entrance.

“There is a guest suite is closest to the lake and it is attached to the house, but you have to go through the covered lanai to get to the door of it,” Pinel told GrowthSpotter.

A second main bedroom suite is on the second floor.

The kitchen has two large islands and opens right into the dining area and living space.

The home sits on 1.61 acres of lakefront on Lake Concord with views of downtown Orlando just across the lake.

“It’s the closest home to I-4 on that stretch. It’s got great views of downtown Orlando and I-4,” he said. “We knew it was one of a kind being newer construction, a 1.6-acre estate in College Park, and within minutes of downtown.”

Rial Jones of Jones Clayton Construction built the home in 2015 and everything in it is high end. The style is current with wide open spaces and lots of white, wood, columns, and arches. The exterior has a bit of a Mediterranean look.

“The sellers purchased the property, tore a house down and hired the builder,” Pinel explained. “It’s a very well built and very cool home.”


A large, covered outdoor space has high wood ceilings, an outdoor kitchen, and a fireplace. The nearby infinity pool empties into a hot tub near the lake with views of both the lake and the dock.

“The pool goes lengthwise down to the lake which is unique because most people go parallel to the lake,” he said. “The pool spills over into a spa area. It’s definitely a pretty cool and resort-like atmosphere in the backyard.”

Pinel said the buyers loved the size of the property and the fact it is relatively new and private with only a few large estates in this particular area of the lake.

“It’s got a spectacular entry that is a very long driveway. It meanders through a few very old and mature live oaks. It’s a beautiful entrance to a gated property so it’s private.”
