With 80+/- feet of Intracoastal waterfront, and a private 40+/- foot concrete dock that could easily accommodate a boatlift, this two-story, five-bedroom Mediterranean estate offers true luxury living. From its lush tropical landscaping to its heated saltwater infinity pool, incomparable waterway views, direct ocean access, proximity to unspoiled beaches, convenient shopping and dining, this is the quintessential South Florida lifestyle, complete with the peace of mind that only comes with recent concrete construction, hurricane-proof windows and doors.
Guests are welcomed through glass and scrolled iron doors into a commanding 24+/- foot foyer that looks beyond the graceful marble and wrought iron staircase, into the dramatic two-story living room with its carved stone fireplace, to a window wall with French doors revealing breathtaking water views.
Creamy marble floors unify open living areas, while hardwood floors define most bedroom suites. Arches, columns, custom mouldings add architectural interest. Light finishings and expansive windows create an overwhelming sense of space. A covered lanai is ideal for dining by the water on dishes artfully prepared in the gourmet chef's island kitchen. The private master wing opens to a spacious covered balcony with far-ranging north/south water views.
West Tradewinds Avenue, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a true Gold Coast gem, nestled on a scenic barrier island between the ocean and the Intracoastal, just east of Fort Lauderdale. This charming seaside community maintains unspoiled surroundings in an atmosphere reminiscent of the Florida Keys. Quaint Pelican Square serves as the village centerpiece, next to the oceanfront pier, offering a delightful array of boutiques and dining options. Caressed by gentle trade winds, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is blessed with sun-drenched sandy beaches. A living coral reef, 100+/- yards offshore, teems with colorful fish and marine life, offering ideal snorkeling and scuba diving.
A circular paver drive, accented by pristine tropical landscaping and varietal palms, introduces this classic South Florida estate. Those same pavers thread their way around to the gated yard, where they define the lanai for outdoor dining and entertaining, the deck that surrounds the heated saltwater pool, and the step-down path leading to the private concrete dock.
