Newly-acquired Orlando Magic shooting guard Terrence Ross paid $1.765 million last week to put down roots with a lakefront home in Windermere.
The 26-year-old player, who the Magic acquired via trade last season from the Toronto Raptors, bought a home in the 12000 block of Montalcino Circle in the Casa Del Lago neighborhood, according to a deed signed Thursday and recorded Tuesday morning.
The 5,138-square-foot home is a 2014 Arthur Rutenberg Estate model sitting on 1.26-acres adjacent to Lake Burden.
The two-story home features four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, and is loaded with luxurious extras, including a media room where family and guests can watch movies; a club room with a pool table, bar and balcony overlooking the lake; and a large resort-style pool with a swim-up bar overlooking a fire pit and sunken seating areas.
A large, L-shaped outdoor kitchen completes the outdoor amenities.
Ross, who played college ball at the University of Washington, was a first-round draft pick and No. 8 overall by the Raptors in 2012.
In his recent season playing for the Magic, Ross averaged 25.1 minutes per game, with 11 points per game and a 43.7 shooting percentage.
The sellers were David B. and Kendi L. Freygang, who live on Isleview Circle in Winter Garden. David is the former CEO of Bonnier Corp., based in Winter Park.
This home was just an investment property for them, which they bought in 2015 for $1.715 million and then leased it back to the builder for use as a model home.
