MELBOURNE, Fla. (PRWEB) February 11, 2021
Engel & Völkers Florida today announced the record-breaking sale of 3039 Old Lake Alfred Rd. Engel & Völkers Melbourne Beachside’s “Aspire Group,” Martha Melendez and Steve Stark represented the buyers in the $1,500,000 purchase, which was the highest price seen for a home in Lake Alfred, Florida.
“Our clients had a very refined vision of what their dream home would be,” said Melendez. “This led us to search far and wide across Florida. It was a thrilling experience to take road trips to show homes throughout the beautiful sunshine state. It turned out our clients had been eyeing this magnificent property for over a year, thinking it may only be a dream, but we were able to help make it their reality. They truly could not be happier!”
The notable transaction represents the highest residential sales price in Lake Alfred, and one of the highest in Polk County. Until the closing, 3039 Old Lake Alfred Rd was the most expensive single family home for sale in Lake Alfred, trailed by 200 Wgto Tower Rd at $1,249,000. According to Zillow, this home is valued 696-percent higher than the typical home in Lake Alfred and 617-percent higher than the typical home in Polk County. Home values in Lake Alfred have increased eight percent over the past twelve months and Zillow predicts that home values will continue to increase an additional five percent over the next year.
The seller is an international businessman, represented by Barry Macchione with RE/MAX Paramount Properties. The buyers are a husband and wife from Minnesota; he is a commercial pilot for a major airline and she works in the dental industry.
“Engel & Völkers is known for being a proponent of submarket specialization,” said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. “While Martha and Steve are real estate experts in their local Brevard County market, they went above and beyond for these clients, who insisted on working with them no matter the area they decided to purchase a home in.”
This 10-acre ranch property has a 8,000 square-foot home with six bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms; including a more than 1,000 square-foot master suite, complete with a sitting area, walk-in closet, side-by-side slipper bathtubs, surround sound and LED lighting. Custom built with the finest home defense technology, the entire dwelling is protected by a Control4 Home Automation System, which includes security cameras throughout the home and an internal safe room with control center. The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art Wolfe appliances. Entertainment features include a 12-seat home theater with surround sound, olympic pool, 12-person hot tub, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, travertine deck, and a golf driving pad. The 6-car garage is complete with an In-law suite above.
