Windermere Versailles Mansion


Windermere Luxury Home for Sale, the Sanctuary at Lake Butler Sound

Windermere has long been known as “The Place” to liver in central Florida, drawing celebrities, sports personalities, and high income people from all walks of upscale life. When time share mogul David Siegel decided to build a home emulating the royal palace of Louis XIV of the 17th Century, Windermere was the likely choice. Covering five lots, totaling 10 acres on the shores of beautiful Lake Butler, Siegel’s Versailles Mansion is the largest single family home under one roof ever built in America!

When you enter through the front entryway, you will find yourself in the grand hall; an opulent 120 by 60 foot foyer skirted by two grand staircases beneath a thirty foot stained glass dome that took three years to complete. Venture further into the palace and you will find almost anything you can think of including:

  • Two Planned Elevators
  • Two Movie Theaters
  • Ten Kitchens
  • A Bowling Alley
  • A Video Arcade
  • A Roller Skating Rink
  • An Entire Children’s Wing
  • A Spa with Every Amenity Imaginable
  • Thirteen Bedrooms
  • 23 Baths
  • A Twenty Car Garage

Outside, the elegance and luxury continue. You will find the completely private ten acre compound is a virtual resort unto itself including such notable outdoor amenities as:

  • A Baseball Field
  • Two Lighted Tennis Courts
  • A Swimming Pool Bigger Than Most Homes
  • Formal Gardens Everywhere
  • A Stone and Iron Perimeter Fence
  • A Grand Porte Cochere
  • A Boathouse
  • A Single Story Gate House with an Apartment

This palace is truly the pinnacle of luxury living! The ten acre compound in one of central Florida’s most desirable communities, the ever-popular Sanctuary at Lake Butler Sound features 1200 feet of lakefront and stunning panoramic views from a multitude of windows facing every direction. This opulent 90,000 square foot mansion has literally everything! So much that you may never have to leave what will be your own private resort. You may not even care that downtown Orlando is only about 20 minutes away.
