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.
