Seeing is believing for Envision Eyecare owner Dr. Christine Blick. A Celebration resident since 2003, Dr. Blick is watching her vision become a reality at 502 Celebration Avenue, thanks to Issa Homes and Geoffrey Moen Architects.
The Mediterranean style residence, located in the Celebration, Florida home business district, is expected to be complete by early Spring 2013. Dr. Blick’s two-story residence features a very unique architectural design with a second-story porch and rear balcony overlooking a large internal courtyard. The 5,100- square-foot building includes a 2,800 square foot medical office with a designer eyewear showroom on the first floor and adds another 2,800 square foot luxury living area plus 500 sq. ft. garage apartment on the second floor.
“Issa Homes has been building in Celebration since 1997 and it’s exciting to have been part of Walt Disney’s dream community from start to finish within Celebration and now as we start in Disney’s Golden Oak at Walt Disney World® Resort,” said Issa Homes partner Don Hempel.
Dr. Blick plans to relocate Envision Eyecare from its current business location at Water Tower Place to the new location in early Spring 2013.
“My new location in the home business district will offer a comfortable, relaxing, and inviting setting to meet the community’s eye care and designer eyewear needs,” said Dr. Blick. “I am thrilled to live and work in such a wonderful town.”
