A luxurious architectural residential community with award-winning amenities
Golden Oak, the luxury residential community located at Walt Disney World Resort, has expanded to offer homes with modern architectural style within the community’s Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando neighborhood. This expansion of Golden Oak’s design palette is in response to high demand from a generation of homebuyers seeking modern residences that embrace Florida’s climate and lifestyle year-round.
Situated on approximately 20 acres within the Golden Oak development, the Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, will be a collection of 30 whole-ownership, single-family homes on half-acre lots.
We’re thrilled to expand the architectural offerings at Golden Oak with inclusion of modern home design by award-winning, local builders, stated Page Pierce, vice president of Disney Real Estate Development. Our community continues to offer the best in luxury living, providing residents the unique opportunity to live at Walt Disney World Resort, where families can create memories that will last a lifetime.
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. Joining the portfolio of local builders within the Four Seasons Private Residences neighborhood, Kean is recognized as a pacesetter of modern residential design in Central Florida.
Our Golden Oak debut embraces the mid-century modern architectural inspirations of Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Richard Neutra and Rudolf Schindler to create this new modern classic, said Kean. Future 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.
Bringing his own unique twist on modern architecture to the Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando neighborhood, Rial Jones’ first modern home within the community was completed in fall 2018.
The home features folding glass walls erasing separation between indoor and outdoor living, bringing to life the tropical landscaping for which Florida is known. Distinct features of Jones’ home will include floor-to-ceiling glass walls offering striking views of the pool, water features and landscaping from the moment upon entering the home, a glass tower featuring a floating staircase and 1950s inspired stone details in the master bath.
Jones joined the portfolio of builders at Golden Oak in 2011 and he is the president and founder of Jones Clayton construction, established in 1984. He was motivated to start working in modern home design because of the desire for this architectural style from his clientele, who come from all around the world for his impeccable construction.
Kean’s first home is currently in development and set to debut in summer 2019. The earthy color palette and resort feel lend to the future homes inspired name, Nyumbani, which means home in Swahili. Special features included in the current plans for the home are: sweeping indoor/outdoor living areas; a four-sided custom glass fireplace that serves as the homes centerpiece; a vanishing-edge pool with multiple water features; a Phil Kean signature reflecting staircase highlighted by innovative lighting details; a Phil Kean signature contemporary kitchen well-appointed with three islands and a glass enclosed wine room; a separate catering kitchen; home theater; game room with accompanying wet bar; an exercise suite inclusive of sauna and steam shower; and a detached casita.
