This home was recently featured on MTV’s Teen Cribs and like many other homes shown on the show, it’s up for sale. It seems as though these homeowners think appearing on the show will gain attention for their home. Well, these homeowners better do something different, because their home has been on the market since August of 2006! It is owned by Wilbur and Lori Waters, who are custom home builders. They own the company Built by Waters. The home is located at 1700 N Lake Eloise Drive in Winter Haven, FL. It is listed at $5,875,000. The home boasts high ceilings throughout each room, which I love. It is beautifully decorated and has a cool hidden game room behind the home office/library.
