July Home Sales: $343K to $3.1 Million

There were over 80 transactions from July 1 to early August with some well over a million dollars.

18263 Daybreak Drive in Long Lake Estates sold for $3.1 million; image and map data by Google.

Topping our report is the nearly 8000 square foot mansion in Long Lake Estates. 18283 Daybreak Drive has six bedrooms with seven full baths and two half baths. It took over five months to sell and the $3.1M price is down a bit from the original listing at $3.3M. It previously sold for $3M in 2005. The sellers were Robert and Cathy Baker. We think Robert is a personal injury lawyer, and Cathy may be a handbag designer with blu & baker.
The rest of the million dollar club were all in Seven Bridges or The Bridges, with two houses selling lower in those communities. All were built since 2014.

  • $2.23M – 9631 Moritz Way, 7600 sq.ft., Seven Bridges
  • $1.29M – 16756 Strasbourg Lane, 4000 sq.ft., Seven Bridges

Next highest on the food chain is The Oaks. 17569 Middlebrook Way sold for $975K with 5400 sq.ft., 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths. The house was bought for $900K back in 2010. The sale was completed in just over a month at $180/sq.ft. thanks to a motivated seller and aggressive pricing.
17987 Lake Azure Way sold for $900K with 4400 sq.ft., 5 beds, 4 full and 2 half baths. It took over 9 months but the seller’s patience was rewarded with a price over $200/sq.ft.
On the same street, 17746 Lake Azure Way sold in under 2 months. The house has 5 beds, 5 full and 2 half baths in just over 4500 sq.ft.
Last for The Oaks, 17865 Monte Vista Drive sold in a post-foreclosure auction for $852K, also in just under two months. The large house has 6 beds, 6 full and 2 half baths in 5800 sq.ft.
Five homes sold in Saturnia. At the high end, 19498 Saturnia Lakes Drive sold for $850K with 6 bedrooms, 4 and half baths, and just under 4700 sq.ft. with no waterfront. This house has a very large lot with a big pool and a basketball court. The kitchen was redone with very high end materials and appliances including a huge SubZero refrigerator.
The similarly sized 11725 Watercrest Lane with waterfront sold for only $783K, a $67,000 difference probably to the lot size and the kitchen.
At just over 4000 square feet, 19174 Skyridge Circle sold for $725K, and 11793 Preservation Lane sold for $715K, each with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.
All of these larger homes are in the same general category as the newer homes in The Oaks and The Bridges, all putting price pressure on each other.
At the lower end in Saturnia, 19567 Estuary Drive sold for $576K with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2900 square feet.
