The Pozek Group team assisted a buyer in purchasing a spacious home just west of Downtown Orlando in Gotha, closing at $735,000 last month.
The single-family two-story home was built in 1994, and is located within the Lakeview Heights subdivision, with private access to Lake Rose - a popular water-skiing lake.
This property is a perfect opportunity for an investor looking to be close to central Orlando, and wants plenty of space. At 3,260 square feet, it features 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2-car garage, and a balcony on the first and second floor, providing the perfect scenic views in almost every room. In the master bedroom, the bathroom is newly updated and includes marble countertops and tub with glass walk in shower. The dining area, living room, and updated kitchen have enough space for a large gathering, with views of the water and space on the balcony for patio furniture and more!
What really makes this home unique, especially in Florida, is the addition of a basement. Since this home was built on a hill, you enter through the home on the first floor, but can exit to the water through the sliding glass doors of the basement.
This property was sold for $735,000, which is $15,000 less than the asking price of $750,000 after it was re-listed in September. To compare, the average price for homes in Gotha in the last few months averages in the mid $700’s, placing our buyer just a little bit under.
Our team had the chance to assist this buyer and we are overjoyed to help the new Orlando residents find such a spacious property in the area. If you’re looking to buy or sell in the Orlando area, we would love to help you too!
You may be wondering - where is Gotha? This small area is a humble and charming community located on the west side of Orange County between Ocoee and Windermere. Although it is just approximately 15 miles west of Downtown Orlando, the city is a part of the Orlando-Kissimmee metropolitan statistical area. Gotha offers a serene suburban lifestyle while being conveniently close to the amenities of the city, while also being close to the Florida Turnpike for an easy commute.
An interesting fact about Gotha is that it is home to a very widely known cemetery, Woodlawn Memorial Park, where famous individuals such as Ronnie Van Zant, Dave Peverett, and Bob Ross reside.
The housing market in Gotha mostly consists of single family homes and townhomes ranging from the $300’s to mid $700’s, with some nearby Windermere addresses going up to $3 million. The average Gotha home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, but some homes can have upwards to 7 beds/baths!
Residents in the area are less than 15 minutes away from the Winter Garden Village and the Grove at Isleworth shopping centers, and only 20 minutes from Walt Disney World, a perfect location near all of Orlando’s top shopping and theme parks.
