An inverted L shaped entrance, slim round tower and oversized windows give this 12,000-square-foot modern custom home stunning curb appeal. Situated on a peninsula on Lake Markham in the Seminole County community of Lake Markham Preserve, this Florida contemporary home is designed as two wings set at 45-degree angles embracing the lake views.

This Florida Modern custom home by Orlando Custom Homebuilder Jorge Ulibarri brings the outside in by featuring sliding glass walls erasing separation between indoor and outdoor living, embracing Florida’s climate and lifestyle year-round.

“The objective of the home’s floorplan was to have a clear view of the lake throughout the house. We achieved this with large glass sliders throughout the back of the home that run from the master suite to the other side of the home for a 270-degree view of the lake,” says Jorge Ulibarri, owner of Cornerstone Custom Construction.

Check out the home’s panoramic lake views in this flyover:

 

The home’s facade features ledgestone accents that appear on the interior as a unifying architectural element and a custom-crafted flat paneled gray iron front door. Modern garage doors made of stainless steel with shatterproof glass insets house five cars.

A signature Florida contemporary style element is the home’s black slate roof that appears flat but is actually slightly pitched to promote drainage. Other standout architectural features include mitered windows at the corners.
