ORMOND BEACH, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Sitting on the Par-3, 11th hole of the Prestwick Golf Course at Plantation Bay, Gale Lemerand built his dream home. Several years later, the entrepreneur and restauranteur has decided to sell his five-bedroom, six-bathroom home at a real estate auction on March 8. J. P. King Auction Company will conduct the sale.
With some of the highest end amenities, the Prestwick Estate at Plantation Bay will be offered with a minimum starting bid of $2.5 million. A one-acre, waterfront lot on Riverside Drive will be offered at the same auction event, with a starting bid of $650,000.
With original costs at over $8.9 million, the home sits on four acres in Plantation Bay. Inside, the estate features a gourmet, eat-in kitchen with luxury appliances and display cabinetry, a home theater with seven custom La-Z-Boy reclining chairs, wine cellar, billiards room and a family room, which has a double-sided, stone fireplace to separate the formal living room and dining room. The family room includes French doors, which open to the swimming pool with its own waterfall, while the front of the home has a porte-cochere and a motor court, accompanied by a six-car garage.
"I built my dream house. In fact, today, if I were to build again, there's nothing I would change," Mr. Lemerand said. "From the furnishing and decor to the feeling of the house, I wanted something that was large and wide open, but I didn't want something that would be uncomfortable. A lot of thought went into its design; every ceiling in the house is different, and there's recycled wood in the floors, some of which was mined from the bottom of Lake Superior."
A frequent traveler, Mr. Lemerand said every detail of the home -- its architecture, design and even its landscaping -- was inspired by one of two experiences: his travels in Europe or his time spent at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. With its custom design and decor, Mr. Lemerand will sell the home fully furnished.
The home's master suite includes his-and-hers bathrooms and his-and-hers, three-story closets with custom shelving. A gym and dry sauna accompany the suite's fireplace, sitting area and office space, while the master bed features a television lift at the foot. The first floor also features a maid's quarters with its own kitchen and separate entrance.
Outside, Mr. Lemerand had waterfalls and a pond built in with several fountains to accompany the property's tropical setting. The home's four acres spread across the entire 11th hole.
The Riverside Drive lot that is also being sold at auction is a one-acre lot on the Halifax River, with 172 feet of frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway. Last listed at $1.9 million, the lot will sell with a starting bid of $650,000.
Gale Lemerand was president and CEO of Gale Industries until 2000. He is also co-founder and majority owner of Stonewood Grill & Tavern restaurants. A philanthropic supporter of numerous universities and organizations, namely the University or Florida and Boys and Girls Clubs, Mr. Lemerand also owns major interest in restaurants that include Houligan's, Perkins Family Restaurant and Stonewood.
The auction will take place on Friday, March 8 at 11 a.m. at the home, which is located at 1004 Hampstead Lane in Ormond Beach. Property previews will be available from February 26 through auction day by appointment. For additional information, individuals may contact J. P. King at 800.558.5464 or visit the company's website at www.jpking.com.

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
