Orlando Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier and his wife, Laura, have picked up a chic estate in Winter Park, FL, for $2.9 million.
The NBA player scored a deal. The Winter Park Chain of Lakes property had been listed earlier in the year for $3.25 million, and had then been dropped to $3.15 million in May, before the Frenchman grabbed it.
Overlooking the picturesque Lake Maitland, this sweet pad features timeless design in a convenient neighborhood close to downtown, about a 15-minute drive to the Amway Center, where the Magic normally plays home games.
It’s a bit farther to the NBA bubble at Walt Disney World, but with the Magic since eliminated, Fournier has even more time to enjoy his new digs.
Built in 1995, the one-owner custom manor has been recently updated with new carpet and paint. The five-bedroom, 5.5-bath floor plan, with 6,384 square feet, is set on 2.15 acres, with 119 feet of lake frontage.
It was designed by a local architect, Steve Feller, and built by Don Jernigan, with a lot of thoughtful details.
Enter the impressive foyer through French doors, to a grand staircase that leads to the second level. This overlooks the living area, with floor-to-ceiling windows and great lake views.
The spacious main floor offers a bedroom suite and a modern home office. The living and dining room areas are perfect for entertaining guests.
The kitchen has been renovated with granite countertops, white cabinets, island, stainless-steel appliances, double ovens, and a breakfast area with a great nook, which provides ample natural light. A family area is located next to the kitchen.
Upstairs, find a master suite with a large bathroom and walk-in closet, as well as three more bedroom suites, a bonus loft, and a media room with bar area.
Other notable features include crown moldings, wood floors, fireplaces, built-ins, immaculate grounds, a boathouse and dock, and a two-car garage.
No pool? No problem. There’s plenty of room in the backyard to add one, the listing states.
In 2015, Fournier purchased a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Winter Park for $556,000, which the couple still owns. It has 2,654 square feet.
Fournier was selected in the NBA draft (20th overall) by the Denver Nuggets in 2012. He was traded to the Orlando Magic in 2014.
