The main man for the Orlando Magic, Dwight Howard, recently switched out his Windermere home at Isleworth for another lakefront mansion in the Lake Club subdivision in Longwood off Markham Woods Road. According to news sources, it’s the highest priced sale ever recorded in Seminole County at just shy of $8 million. There goes some of that money he won for the Superman stunt at the Slam Dunk contest. The estate is called Chateau D’Usse and the 2008 Street of Dreams winner. I don’t know when they started giving names to houses, but you can pretty much take a wild stab at it and guess it’s gonna be nice. I could name my home, Chateau de Hojin, but it’s not quite that good.
The new home built by Hillcrest Homes features 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 half baths, a Nitendo Wii room (a grown man’s dream), 4 car garage (ahh… it would be great for my bass boat), a bar (ahh… it be great for when my friends come to watch the game), about 11,026 square feet, 2 guest cabanas, a lazy river that floats you through the 3 beach areas (aah.. my friends would love it but would stay too long), and 3 acres of lakefront views. Some grand features as big as Howard include 30′ travertine arches, 10′ waterfall, and a 25′ stone fireplace. There’s even a floor to ceiling bookcase in the den that doubles as a secret doorway to the master close just like it was right out of Scooby Doo (man that’s cool).
It sounds like Dwight’s got some fancy new digs and we’ll miss him here in SW Orlando.
