About This Old House

As one of the original homes in Lake Hamilton, Florida, this custom home built by George Stillwell in 1915 was featured in a flyer “A New Idea in Florida Development.” Many wealthy and well-known people came to enjoy the fishing, entertainment, and relaxation of this delightful home, Lake Lee, the former hotel built by Stillwell, and the surrounding area. This home has twice been featured in the Christmas historic home tour. This appealing lakefront property is located in the safe quiet town of Lake Hamilton, yet is located only 1 mile from Highway 27 and Lake Hamilton, 7 miles north of Legoland, 15 south of I-4, and 25 miles south of Disney, providing convenient accessibility to work, shopping, and entertainment. A combination of quality construction and beauty of the past with updated modern amenities, the house, property, and location offer versatility as a single family home with detached guest quarters for parents/adult children/rental, or as an Airbnb.

This sprawling 2 story estate home with tiled roof, arches, and decorative wrought iron sits on a nearly 2 acre lot with meandering paths and gardens on beautiful Lake Lee. The house has been updated as well as painted inside and out and is in turn key condition. An expansive screened porch with indoor/outdoor carpeting has two seating areas, original glass paneled entry doors, and a side entrance to the living room. The charming home features original hardwood floors including an engaging floor in the parlor, fireplace, high ceilings downstairs, cedar beams in the parlor and living room, ceiling fans, vintage crystal chandeliers, 3 stained glass paneled doors, cased windows/doors, 2 zoned air conditioning/heating units, and built-in display shelves in the living room. The formal dining room has an original built-in corner cabinet. The large lake view kitchen features stainless appliances, numerous maple cabinets and lighted upper cabinets, a farmhouse sink, separate walk-in pantry, and space for breakfast nook or island with seating. French sliding doors open to a screened, elevated, lake view patio. A large lake view bonus room leads out to a screened garden patio. The lake view master suite has a custom Spanish style door free bath/shower combination, linen closet, long vanity with double sinks, and a sizable double door walk-in closet with built-ins. Decorative white wrought iron leads up the hardwood staircase to 3 bedrooms, 4 spacious angled closets, 2 additional closets, a wide hall with attic access, and bathroom with tub. Intriguing built-in bookshelves surround many of the upstairs walls and are a unique and useful addition by a former resident/judge. A whole house attic fan is accessible both up/downstairs. A glass door leads out to a flat roof that has been used as a terrace. A sturdy house with thoughtful construction, the roof trusses of this custom home are made from ship joists.

Outside, an attached finished carport/patio leads to a fenced 70’x82′ side yard where trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy. Behind the home is an additional freestanding aluminum carport with concrete parking. The sparking 14’x32′ in ground pool is fully screened in a 20’x40′ concrete patio with cool deck. A second long driveway leads to 3 car garage. The garage has been converted to a 450 sq ft guest cottage with full bath and oversize 1-1/2 car garage with work/lawn care area. It has its own septic/drain field, water heater, and electric, as well as outdoor shower and huge concrete double sink for fishing etc. The extensive driveways provide ample parking and are suitable for RV or watercraft. Property includes 70′ of easily accessible lakefront. Plot and room dimensions are available.
