T-Mackin Butler Chain Mansion in Dr. Phillips

May 7th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Here’s a video of ESPN featuring the home of ex Orlando Magic star Tracy McGrady on a show a called The Life .

This t-mackin home was originally built for golf legend Payne Stewart by architect John Henry along the shores of Lake Pocket on Charles E. Limpus Road right here in Dr. Phillips. Henry called his creation Villa Serena because it was designed to offer privacy, security, and a sublime spirit along the shores of the famed Butler Chain of Lakes.

It truly is one of the most majestic homes in Orlando with Henry’s signature palladium arches, abundant stone and plaster details, and influences from the Mediterranean Revival and Italian Baroque architectural styles. I’m not sure if the architect would describe it this way, but it’s macadocious.

    The internet has revolutionized real estate. From text ads a decade ago, to picture ads five years ago. The next big thing to change real estate’s presence on the internet are video tours.
