A New Look for Old Winter Park: "The Oasis"
The Oasis luxury home blends modern and traditional elements with natural material resulting in what Bill Cook refers to as a “warm modern” style. This warm modern look starts at the front elevation with an abundant use of cultured stone combined with horizontal banding, a very unique Frank Lloyd Wright-ish 20 inch tall fascia, a frosted glass front entry system with a pivoting 10’ front door, frosted glass garage doors and a unique conservatory glass roof over the front porch.
Passing through the front porch entry of this custom home, visitors and guests will be greeted by an inviting pool with a 5 foot fire-feature, multiple water features, limestone pavers, a Wolf grille at the summer kitchen and a raised sun deck. A detached guest suite also overlooks the pool area.
Entering The Oasis through a second 10’ pivoting door, the clean lines of warm modern continue via an accent stone wall, stone columns, limestone and wood floors, limestone stairs, numerous handcrafted built-ins along with modern cabinetry, a contemporary blown glass dining room chandelier with matching glass artwork, an abundant use of LED lighting and a Control4 lighting system. The Hangout Room has its own bar with seating area and five TVs – perfect for movie nights, parties and watching sports. The Flex Space, concealed behind sliding barn doors, can take on multiple functions depending upon the owners needs.
The gourmet kitchen in this luxury home is truly one-of-a-kind and must be seen to be appreciated. It boasts modern cabinets, metal shelves, a free-standing Wolf 48” Professional range and vent hood plus a Wolf in-wall steam convection oven, warming drawer and microwave, 30” SubZero refrigerator and freezer columns, a hidden walk-in pantry, an oversized center island plus a 50” Ceasarstone table for casual dining and 5 skylights for natural lighting.
The master bath features a unique layout with his and her sinks and water closets and a spacious wardrobe area with a center island. Beyond the inside shower is the master suite’s private ‘The Retreat’, which boasts a Jacuzzi Hot tub, an outdoor shower, an organic garden wall and a lounging area - tranquil and serene! - the perfect place to rest at the end of a hectic day.
As a luxury home builder, Bill Cook places a huge emphasis on indoor air quality. It is his intention that the home will not only be EPA Energy Star certified but also be EPA indoor airPLUS certified. We anticipate this home will use less than 60% of the energy of similar sized new home construction. Carrier’s top of the line Infinity system contributes to this efficiency. Many no and low VOC materials were used. Most new luxury homes are built extremely airtight and, as such, Bill used a Honeywell ERV to bring in fresh/conditioned/dehumidified outside air.
