Located four miles from the Magic Kingdom and just 25 minutes from Orlando International Airport and Downtown Orlando, Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort is a luxury single-family development located within Walt Disney World Resort. Consisting of 980 acres nestled in a conservation area, the development is a mixture of residential and commercial areas.
The center of the commercial area is the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. The resort, which opened in 2014, has a Tom Fazio-designed, 18-hole golf course, restaurants, full-service spa and facilities for private events.
The Golden Oak community is the first time homes are available for purchase at the Walt Disney World Resort. Starting at $2 million, the homes are inspired by Venetian, Dutch and Tuscan design influence. There are about 300 homes in the community. The houses come in a variety of sizes and price ranges. The Marceline development range from 3,800-4,500 square feet and are on one-quarter acres. The Carolwood Reserve homes sit on three-quarters of acre and range from 6,500-12,000 square feet. The Silverbrook homes sit on one-half acre and range from 5,000-7,000 square feet.
The Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort offers hotel-inspired lifestyle in a home environment. These homes start at $5 million and range from 6,000-10,000 square feet and sit on half an acre of land. Think private residence dining, in-resident spa treatments, laundry and dry-cleaning, towel and bed linen services, personal shopping and personalized assistance with planning private parties. Homeowners also have access to the five-acre water park and recreation area which includes multiple pools (including an adult-only one), a lazy river, water slides, splash zone and game room. There’s also the three tennis courts, a basketball court, sand volleyball and gym with regularly-scheduled fitness classes. The Tranquilo Golf Club, designed by Tom Fazio, is a par 71 and plays 6,901 yards. It’s a secluded 18-hole course surrounded by landscaped grounds. Homeowners also have access to the six restaurants available at the Four Seasons Resort including a Spanish-inspired steakhouse, Italian restaurant, golf clubhouse serving Cuban-American cuisine and a poolside restaurant.
The Golden Oak Club has many Disney perks including special access to the parks including Extra Magic Hours benefits, golf services, dining reservations and transportation. Another amenity of the Golden Oak Club is Summerhouse, a 17,000 square foot clubhouse. The Summerhouse private clubhouse at Golden Oak offers a variety of amenities and activities. The full-service dining room—Markham’s—and the private lounge—Tyler’s—is home to club guests. There’s also a family room with gaming facilities, a pool and an expansive fitness area. Programs include season parties and special events throughout the year.
Award-winning, Orlando-based builders Phil Kean and Rial Jones are the first to bring to life this new architectural style in a community best known for a traditional European aesthetic. Blurring the lines between indoors and out, the homes are for families looking to entertain and spend time together on the patio and deck, as well as in the open kitchen and living room.
Architectural inspirations come from Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Richard Neutra and Rudolf. “Homeowners can expect open floor plans, pocketing glass walls, extensive indoor/outdoor living spaces and extraordinary architectural details as the main attractions of this extraordinary home,” says Phil Kean.
