One of the largest and most expensive properties in Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, the home features a “Walkway of Fame,” showcasing the sports icon’s extensive collection of awards.

ORLANDO, FLA. (September 4, 2020) — The magnificent estate owned by legendary football coach Lou Holtz has entered the market for $4.5 million; it is one of the most expensive listings in Orlando’s exclusive Lake Nona Golf & Country Club community. Nestled on a 1.2-acre double lot at 9209 Cromwell Park Place, the home is marketed exclusively by Peter Luu of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Orlando office. Listing details can be viewed here.

Encompassing 10,773 square feet under air with six bedrooms, six full baths and four half baths, the residence underwent an extensive renovation in 2017. Outstanding design details range from tray ceilings with crown moldings, extra-large trim and a plethora of built-ins to an elevator and second-story balconies.

One of the home’s most unique features is a smoking room. A pipe aficionado, Holtz custom built the space with an air purification system. However, the coach’s favorite room in the house is the upstairs office. “I had great privacy and could smoke my pipe and make all my decisions there… some bad, but all decisions were made in there,” he says.

Another showpiece of the residence is a Walkway of Fame, which displays the Holtz’ multitude of awards. Additional exquisite appointments include a master retreat with an expansive dual closet, electronic shades and a dual programmable shower in the spa-like master bath.

An outdoor oasis provides the perfect venue for relaxing and entertaining, replete with a palatial pool and spa. This extraordinary home is located within the sought-after Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, a gated golfer’s paradise with an 18-hole championship course, bath and racquet club, fitness center, tennis courts, pool and an array of amenities.

“This stunning home embodies Florida living at its finest, and the demand for this unique lifestyle is on the rise," said Peter Luu. "We are currently seeing an influx of interest from New York and California. Out-of-market buyers have outpaced years past, and they seem to be house hunting in the $1M+ category."
