A lead principal in Central Florida's largest McDonald's franchisee company paid $5.2 million last week for an Old World Italian estate in Isleworth, sold by a Tupperware executive.
Located on Isleworth Country Club Drive in Windermere's most prestigious community and overlooking the Arnold Palmer Golf Course, the 0.72-acre lot sits along the course's front nine, facing the third hole fairway.
The two-story home, with a master wing and upper-level game room/movie theater, features 10,394 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, five full baths and three half baths. The outdoor area includes a custom swimming pool with a lap lane, and swim-up fire pit surrounded by a lanai and summer kitchen.
Monica Lochmandy of Isleworth Realty represented the seller, Simon Hemus, vice chairman of Tupperware Brands.
"The property was one of those marquee estates by Wyatt Anderson [of Wyatt Anderson Construction]. He built it in 2006. He wanted it to be his showcase home to show off his best of the best," Lochmandy told GrowthSpotter. "It didn't surprise me that 87 days later [from listing] it sold — a quick sale for this price range."
The buyer was Jean Ann Oerther, a principal of Oerther Foods, Central Florida's largest franchisee for McDonald's restaurants. Oerther was represented by Evelyn "Renee" Kirmani Casado of Service First Realty.
Lochmandy said that the entire property is in pristine condition and every room has a wow factor. Details include hand-laid mosaic tiles, marble floors with walnut inlays, antique chandeliers from Paris, and wine bottle labels embedded in the tiles of the steps leading to the underground wine cellar.
"I was privileged to represent the house's seller," Lochmandy said of Hemus and his wife Junko Hemus, who previously paid $4 million for the property in March 2013. The couple noted a current address in San Clemente, California on the sale deed.
