Notable Home Sales

One lake to another, pro golfer D.A. Points sells, buys in Windermere area

PGA Tour golfer D.A. Points has sold his Windermere home of five years on Lake Tibet for a recorded $3.3 million, but he isn't moving far.

The five-bed, six-and-a-half bath two-story home in the Keene's Pointe neighborhood was built in 2004, according to Orange County Property Appraiser records.


It has 6,383 square feet of living space, a pool and a dock. Points had purchased the two-story home in June 2013 for $2.77 million.  The new owner is a local engineering executive. The property's lake views and a wine room were among the things that stood out for the buyer, said Jay Martin of Keene's Pointe Realty, who represented Points in both transactions.

"Lakes are always a big draw, and there's very little inventory on the lakes," Martin said of the Windermere high-end market conditions of late. "... It was 60 days on the market at over $3 million, and that's usually over a year on the market."


Just a couple of miles away in an active upscale area along Winter Garden Vineland Road, Points bought his new home for $1.725 million. Martin found out the home was available via word of mouth before it hit the market, he said.

"The Points had a hard time finding something that they liked after they were under contract [to sell], but when someone told me about this I got a hold of the owner," Martin said. "It's just that the timing was good, and within one day we had a contract."

Built in 2016, the five-bed, 5-1/2 bath home with 5,240 square feet of living space and a pool backs up to a conservation area bordering Cypress Lake. Points was looking for something easier to maintain given his schedule and family, Martin said.

Points, 41, attended University of Illinois and has posted $11,786,774 in career earnings since joining the PGA Tour in 2005 – with three victories, the most recent being the 2017 Puerto Rico Open.
